Tottenham Hotspur v Crystal Palace Betting Odds & Tips

Cross city rivalry will take centre stage on Saturday afternoon when Tottenham Hotspur lock horns with Crystal Palace. The London derby will take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with the encounter scheduled to kick off at the same time as four other EPL matches across the country.

Mauricio Pochettino will be disappointed that his charges have only amassed just one win from their first four matches of the season, an undoing that currently places them ninth on the log on 5 points. A 3-1 win over newcomers Aston Villa on the opening weekend, and a hard-fought 2-2 draw with champions Manchester City was overshadowed by a shocking 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United and a 2-2 draw against Arsenal.

In their most recent outing, Spurs found themselves with a comfortable 2-0 lead at the Emirates thanks to an early goal by Christian Eriksen and a well taken penalty by Harry Kane five minutes before the interval. The visitors however imploded soon afterwards, as they allowed striker Alexandre Lacazette to halve the deficit right at the stroke of halftime, before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang added the second in the 71st minute to salvage a point for his side.

Crystal Palace on the other hand beat Aston Villa by a solitary goal before the international break to spring to fourth on the table on 7 points. The only goal of the encounter was scored by Jordan Ayew seventeen minutes to time.

The Eagles may have not made the most convincing start to their campaign, as a 0-0 draw with Everton in their first outing of the season was followed by an unexpected 1-0 defeat to newly promoted Sheffield United.

What however proved to be the turning point for Roy Hodgson’s side was their 2-1 thrashing of Manchester United; a result they surely built on before heading out for the September edition of the international break.

Tottenham Hotspur betting news

Pochettino has to contend with a number of injury concerns ahead of welcoming Palace.
Tanguy Ndombele, Ryan Sessegnon, Kyle Walker-Peters and Eric Dier will all have to pass a late fitness test to secure a place in Saturday’s line up.

Tanguy missed the last two games with a thigh problem while Sessegnon has yet to feature since signing from Fulham due to a hamstring injury.
Kyle Walker-Peters and defender Eric Dier will also be assessed having missed the North London derby with hamstring and hip issues respectively.
Midfielder Giovani Lo Celso looks to have picked up a hip injury while on international duty with Argentina while center-back Davinson Sanchez injured his ankle in Colombia colors.

Defender Juan Foyth is also sidelined with an ankle injury.

Crystal Palace betting news

Other than being short on numbers at the back, with defenders Scott Dann, Martin Kelly and James Tomkins all suffering from various injuries, the rest of Roy Hodgson’s squad remains fit ahead of their trip to Spurs.

Harry Kane EPL betting odds and specials

  • Kane to score First – $1.66 on William Hill
  • Kane to score/ Spurs win – $1.85 on William Hill

He may have missed out on the Golden Boot last season, but Harry Kane hasn’t faltered in his quest to contend for the coveted prize this campaign. Carrying the burden of being the highest goal scorer over the last six EPL seasons is a challenge that the Three Lions striker relishes; having already found the back of the net three times this season.

In good form and with a better start than in most seasons, Kane should be Tottenham’s biggest inspiration in front of goal against Palace.

Spurs v Crystal Palace Betting Tips

Crystal Palace may be ahead of Tottenham on the log, but the Eagles haven’t had a scorching run of matches quite like Spurs.

The North Londoners head into the match with an impressive run of eight successive Premier League wins over Palace, conceding just a single goal in the process and are red hot EPL betting favourites.

Although Pochettino’s charges haven’t played convincingly in their first four matches, they should be able to brush aside Palace with a marginal win.
