Crystal Palace v Leicester: Goal-count to exceed 2.5 for sure

| 27.09.2014

Both Crystal Palace and visiting Leicester will be buoyed by fantastic Premier League results last time around, making the prediction of a result south of the Thames a tricky business indeed.

The match odds for the Selhurst Park clash back up this theory, with Ladbrokes perching atop the fence.

Palace are 6/4 for the spoils, the draw is a 12/5 shot and the Foxes are set at 15/8, though we’ve dug around for some other betting gold for the contest.

Draw no bet: Leicester @ 1/1

Palace may have recorded another memorable scalp at Everton in the league, but it’s the Eagles’ dodgy home form – no win in four top-flight games – which lends more attraction to an away victory with stakes returned on the draw.

Nigel Pearson’s side managed a win on the road at the Britannia last time they left the King Power Stadium as well.

Over 2.5 goals @ 1/1

No one needs reminding of how many goals flew in during Leicester’s last match, while aside from Burnley’s visit three games ago, this bet would have landed in all six clashes Palace have featured in this season.

Furthermore, three of the last four matches Neil Warnock has overseen have witnessed the 4.5 goals barrier being broken.

Team to score first: Palace @ 10/11

Leicester’s Achilles heel this term is their propensity to fall behind. In five of their six all-competition fixtures this season they’ve had to overcome a deficit.

Meanwhile, in those games which have contained goals, Palace have hit the net first on four of five occasions in 2014/15.
