Crystal Palace v Spurs – FA Cup Betting Guide: 27th Jan 2018

Sunday 27th January 2019
Fourth Round

Crystal Palace v Tottenham Hotspur 16:00

Another all-Premier League FA Cup clash on Sunday as struggling Crystal Palace have a week distraction from their league woes when welcoming Spurs to White Hart Lane and with the visitors having plenty of injury worries with the likes of Kane, Son and Alli all doubts then the Eagles might fancy their chances.

The match betting is quite tight too with Palace 2.90, the Draw 3.40 and Spurs 2.37, while the outright odds see Palace at 2.37 and Spurs 1.53.

They’ve met six times in this competition and Palace hold the edge too with 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 wins for Spurs.

However, they did meet in the league earlier this season and that ended in a 1-0 Spurs win – and this scoreline has been extremely popular when these sides meet with Spurs winning ALL of the last five head-to-heads 1-0!

Therefore, it would be foolish to not have 1-0 Spurs on your radar at 8.00, especially as Palace have also lost their last three home game to Spurs 1-0 too.

In fact, Spurs have won their last 4 away games against Palace and the Eagles have NOT scored in their last 5 against them.

10 of the last 12 head-to-heads went UNDER 2.5 GOALS so at 1.80 this is certainly an option to look at and with an 83% strike-rate that doesn’t look bad value.
Both teams DIDN’T score in ALL of the last six too, so this is another option at 2.00.

However, it’s hard to get away from the 1-0 Spurs scoreline that seems to pop-up a lot in this fixture, so we’ll have a small interest in this at 8.00, as well as Under 2.5 goals at 1.80.

BEST BET: Spurs to win 1-0 @8.0 & UNDER 2.5 GOALS @1.80
