Competition: Premier League
Market: Tottenham to beat Crystal Palace
Odds: 2/7 @ Bet365
The Premier League returns this weekend following another midweek full of the excitement and intrigue from the Champions League. With the majority of England’s top sides gaining victories in the week, they will want to carry this form into their domestic games, and one side that will be looking to maintain their momentum is Tottenham Hotspur, and they host Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Things are going very well for Tottenham of late. Excluding a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United last weekend, they have been in fine form. Currently third in the table with 20 points, Spurs will know that a victory this weekend is vital if they are to chase down Manchester City, who are eight points clear of the London side. While their league position may not be perfect, their situation in the Champions League almost is. A 3-1 win over Real Madrid in the week secured their place in the knock-out rounds of the Champions League and sent a message to the rest of the world.
Crystal Palace, on the other hand, have been awful this season. Just four points from a possible 30 means they are four points short of safety, while the fact they have scored just four goals and conceded 21 times shows they are weak across the pitch. What will give them some hope is the fact that the points they have earned this season have only come in games against London teams (Chelsea and West Ham). However, Tottenham are in such good form of late that Bet365 are giving them odds of 2/7 to win this one.
