Brighton v Crystal Palace – FA Cup Betting Guide: 8th Jan 2018

A win for Palace at the weekend over Burnley saw them move up to 14th in the table but with just 12 points the Eagles are still very much in the firing line for a relegation battle.

Next up for Roy Hodgson’s men is a trip to bitter rivals Brighton so it doesn’t get much easier.

The Seagulls are three places ahead of Palace on 18 points and with home advantage can be expected to make life hard for their visitors.

The match betting sees Palace as the slight favourites though at 2.70, with the Draw 2.10 and Brighton 3.00.

This fixture last season ended 0-0 so at 6.50 this correct score outcome is one to have on your radar, but it’s also worth noting that Palace have lost just one of their last 5 away league games at Brighton.

4 of the last 11 did end in draws though so the 3.10 on another stalemate looks fair value, plus it’s also interesting that Palace have kept a clean sheet 4 times in the last 6 that they’ve faces Brighton – Palace to not conceded is on offer at 2.62.

Former Palace player Glenn Murray will be popular in the scoring markets for Brighton at 6.00 (1st) or 3.00 (anytime), while for Palace Zaha is their main man and is on offer at 7.00 (1st) or 3.40 (anytime).

However, the call here is for both teams NOT to score. This can be backed at 1.70 which looks fair value considering this bet has paid out in 5 of the last 6 head-to-head clashes.

BEST BET: BOTH TEAMS NOT TO SCORE @1.70
