A rare Premier League Friday night match this week as Crystal Palace host Tottenham at Selhurst Park.

The Eagles suffered a 4-0 thumping last weekend to Newcastle and that was also the scoreline when they last faced Spurs at home, so will hoping history won’t be repeating itself here.

While Spurs also took 6 points off Palace last season in the league and come here off the back of a Monday night win over Fulham that will see them start week 10 top of the table again.

Looking at the match betting, despite being the home side Palace are the second favourites at 3.80, with the draw 3.60 and Spurs at 1.90.

Tottenham have also won 13 of the last 16 head-to-heads so are a bit of a bogey side for Palace and have also won the last three ‘to nil’, which can be backed at 3.50.

With only 3 draws in the last 23 clashes we also tend to get a result here, plus it could pay to note that Palace have scored just 6 goals in their last 14 vs their London neighbours.

All these stats are heavily pointing towards a Spurs win.

However, another betting option for the game could be BTTS (yes), which has paid out in 14 of the last 18 (78%), plus 4 of the last 5 (80%) have gone over 2.5 goals.

You can back BTTS (yes) at 1.61 or over 2.5 goals at 1.72.

Over the year’s we’ve seen a lot of Spurs 1-0 wins with a certain Harry Kane scoring, but with the England striker now at Bayern Munich this obviously can’t happen anymore.

But Spurs still have a player that have been a thorn in their side – Heung-Min Son – who has scored in 50% of the last 12 Palace vs Tottenham head-to-heads. He’s on offer at 5.50 (1st) or 2.50 (anytime).

Overall, it’s a game that Palace will be hoping their home advantage will help, but it’s also hard to ignore the good record of Spurs over the Eagles.

Spurs at 1.90 makes a certain amount of appeal but with an 80% return in the last 5 meetings on Over 2.5 Goals, this looks slightly better value and how we are going to play this one.
