Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth betting tips: Premier League match preview & predictions

Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth prediction: Crystal Palace 2-1 Bournemouth

Crystal Palace will be looking for a first home win in four matches – their previous three were against Man City, Leicester and Liverpool.

Eddie Howe’s side have lost three in a row and have just one win in their previous nine.

There are valuable points at stake for Bournemouth, who have to face Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal before the end of the year.

Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth: Who will win?

Crystal Palace are 21/20 favourites to win the match while Bournemouth are priced at 13/5. The draw can be backed at 12/5.

Despite a poor run of form, Bournemouth have found the back of the net in each of their last four matches. Back both teams to score at 4/5.

Having failed to score in his first 13 appearances of the season, Wilfried Zaha now has two goals in two and will be looking to continue his goalscoring form. Zaha is 13/2 to open the scoring and 11/5 to score anytime.

It has long been said of Zaha, that the Ivorian forward starts playing better when a transfer window approaches…

Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth Premier League match preview

Matchweek 15 of the Premier League sees Crystal Palace host Bournemouth at Selhurst Park on Tuesday evening.

Palace’s five-match winless run came to an end on Saturday as they beat Burnley 2-0 at Turf Moor. Wilfried Zaha opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time before substitute Jeffrey Schlupp doubled the Eagles’ lead.

The win lifts Roy Hodgson’s side up to 11th in the table, level on 18 points with Manchester United (9th) and Burnley (10th). Because they’re playing the first match of the round, a win would propel Palace up to fifth place – at least temporarily.

Palace have only won two of their seven league matches at Selhurst this season. Only Watford (4) have scored fewer home goals than the Eagles (5)

Bournemouth lost 3-2 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday, although the scoreline doesn’t tell the whole story. Spurs were cruising with a 3-goal lead with less than 20 minutes left to play before substitute Harry Wilson scored two brilliant free-kicks.

It was ultimately too little, too late for the Cherries who have lost each of their last three games.

Wilson, on loan from Liverpool, has scored six goals for Bournemouth this season and is becoming a dead ball specialist.

Bournemouth ended the weekend down in 12th place, two points behind Palace. A win could move Bournemouth above Arsenal.

Palace and Bournemouth have been pretty evenly matched in their previous 8 Premier League meetings. Both sides have beat each other twice (once at home and once away), drawing the other four.

Last season’s corresponding fixture ended in an eight-goal thriller in May. Michy Bathsuayi (2), Patrick van Aanholt and Andros Townsend scored for Palace while Jefferson Lerma, Jordon Ibe and Joshua King netted for the visitors. Bournemouth’s Jack Simpson also scored an own goal in the 5-3 defeat.

Crystal Palace team news vs Bournemouth

Scott Dann picked up an ankle knock on his return to action and is a doubt for Tuesday night.

Mamadou Sakho is the obvious replacement for Dann at centre-back. Sakho made his first-team comeback on Saturday, replacing Dann

Tuesday might come too soon for Gary Cahill who is recovering from a knee injury.

Former Bournemouth loanee Joel Ward remains sidelined with a knee injury so Martin Kelly should continue at right-back.

Jeffrey Schlupp could replace Andros Townsend in the starting eleven after coming off the bench to score against Burnley.

Max Meyer failed to even make Roy Hodgson’s matchday squad last time out. Connor Wickham played for the under-23s last week but is unlikely to feature.

Bournemouth team news vs Crystal Palace

Philip Billing and Simon Francis are both available after serving a one-match suspension. Billing could replace Lewis Cook in central midfield, while Francis faces stiff competition in defence.

Harry Wilson should start following his second-half brace at Spurs on Saturday. The Liverpool loanee could replace Arnaut Danjuma in the starting eleven.

Tuesday’s game will likely come too soon for Andrew Surman who has a knee injury. The midfielder should be fit for the visit of Liverpool next weekend.

Josh King is also expected to miss out with a “very minor” hamstring strain, while Lloyd Kelly remains a doubt.

Adam Smith has recovered from illness and could replace Jack Stacey at right-back.

Charlie Daniels, David Brooks and Junior Stanislas are long-term absentees.
