Market: Crystal Palace to beat Brighton

Odds: 21/20 @ Bet365

The FA Cup has provided a superb distraction from the Premier League this weekend with a number of huge giant killing moments along with goals galore and controversy. The holders Arsenal were dumped out by Nottingham Forest on Sunday meaning there will be a different winner this year, and with this in mind, Brighton host Crystal Palace in what could be an incredibly feisty affair.

Brighton have been in good form this season in the league. After 22 games they have won five times, drawn eight and lost nine, while they have scored 17 goals and conceded 27 times this season. In their last five games they have lost just once, while they have drawn three games and won once, which has helped the newly-promoted side onto 23 points for the campaign so far, which means they are three points clear of the relegation zone. Many assumed Brighton would be one of the first sides to get relegated this season, but they seem to be defying this expectation, but could an elongated run of games in the FA Cup hinder their survival bid?

Crystal Palace, on the other hand, have been in fine form of late, which has helped to make up for their awful start to the season. After 22 games they have five wins, seven draws and 10 defeats, which has seen the side take 22 points for the season so far. In their last five games they have won twice, drawn twice and lost once, meaning they are in solid form of late. With all of this in mind, we are baking Crystal Palace with odds of 21/20 from Bet365.
