- Saturday, September 12, 2020 - 3pm: Crystal Palace v Southampton
Who is the Crystal Palace v Southampton favourite?Nine points separated the two sides last season, with Southampton enjoying a good run towards the end of the season, thanks to the form of striker Danny Ings.
BetVictor are pricing the away side as favourites in this one at 29/20, with Palace a 21/10 shot with the bookmaker.
The draw can be backed at 85/40.
When it comes to the goalscorer market Ings is favourite to get on the scoresheet, priced at 23/20, while Crystal Palace’s leading man is 21/10 anytime and 9/2 to score first.
Head-to-HeadLast season Southampton took the spoils in this game, winning at Selhurst Park 2-0 back in January of this year. That can be backed at 21/2 with Fansbet and is the result of the last two meetings at Palace.
The Saints have won their last three at Selhurst Park and haven’t conceded a goal in the process, while the reverse fixture has finished a 1-1 draw in the last two meetings.
Overall, Southampton have won 47 meetings between the sides, with Crystal Palace enjoying 39 wins, with 24 draws.
Our Crystal Palace v Southampton PredictionsPalace struggled for goals towards the end of last season and endured a poor run in the final few games.
With such a small turnaround time, we’d back Southampton to get the result and a win to nil would be our backing at 3/1 with BetVictor.
Danny Ings to score and a 2-0 win can be backed at 21/1, and could be worth a bet, while we also like the look of Southampton to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 at 21/10 looks excellent value.
Ings and Southampton to win can be backed at 21/10 with Paddy Power and looks excellent value with the English striker finishing just a goal behind the league’s top scorer last season.
It's going to be an interesting opener for the teams and could really set the tone for the next month or so. We expect Southampton to build on their progress made last season though and enjoy a win in their first game of the campaign.
