Under 2.5 goals at 8/13 for Huddersfield vs Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon

Competition: Premier League
Market: Huddersfield vs Crystal Palace under 2.5 goals
Odds: 8/13 @ Bet 365

With both sides still firmly at the heart of this years relegation battle, on Saturday afternoon David Wagner’s Premier League debutants will look to take one giant step to extending their stay when they welcome Crystal Palace to the John Smith’s Stadium.

For the hosts on Saturday afternoon, while Huddersfield may sit 15th in the table, David Wagner will know that his Terriers are far from out of the woods. With just a four-point advantage over their opponents this weekend, a crucial three points could see the Premier League debutants leap as high as 12th. However, if Wagner’s side are going to book a second season in England’s top flight, they will have to improve their form at the John Smith’s Stadium, with just one home win in their last nine matches in all competitions, the Terriers have now failed to score in their last three home matches on the bounce.

As for the visitors, while the Eagles may have found some initial stability under former England boss Roy Hodgson, the West London club have slumped back to their old ways and now find themselves sat in the relegation zone. With a single point separating them and 17th place Southampton, Hodgson will be desperate to improve on his defensive issues if they intend to avoid the drop. Shipping 48 goals already this season, Palace now boasts the second worst defensive record in the entire Premier League. Palace will also be desperate to get talisman Wilfred Zaha back fully fit, unable to win any of their eight matches without Zaha, the Eagles have now remarkably not won a game without the former Manchester United man since April 2016. With just one clean sheet in 2018, Palace have now lost their last four games on the bounce.
