Tottenham vs Crystal Palace betting tips and predictions for the Premier League fixture on Wednesday 3rd April 2019. Can Spurs cling on to their top four place as they host their first ever match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Spurs will be playing their first match at their new stadium, but had a good home record when playing at Wembley.
Crystal Palace have had some good away results and can get on the scoresheet here.
Palace have scored in their last 10 away matches in all competitions so both teams to score looks a great bet selection.
Spurs were beaten 2-1 at Anfield on Sunday night to leave them in a battle for the two remaining Champions League places with Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea. Things are very tight, with just three points separating third and sixth so they certainly cannot afford to drop any more points in home matches, starting against Palace this week.
Hugo Lloris was at fault for the Liverpool winner at Anfield and he’ll have to put his latest error behind him given that Tottenham still have the small matter of a Champions League quarter final to play against Man City too.
Crystal Palace were 2-0 winners against Huddersfield at the weekend and that win has moved them to 38 points, which will be enough to keep them in the top flight. Roy Hodgson’s side have been hard to predict this season with some really poor results such as the 2-1 home defeat to Brighton, compared to a 4-1 away win at Leicester a month ago.
Despite Palace being in decent form on the road, they did lose in their last away match, the FA Cup quarter final to Watford, and for our Spurs vs Crystal Palace betting tips, we’re expecting a similar outcome with Palace getting on the scoresheet, but losing the match.
We’re expecting goals in this match and that means we can have a bet on an anytime goalscorer tip in the match. Harry Kane didn’t really get a chance at Anfield on Sunday, largely because Virgil Van Dijk was on the pitch. He is always very short in the betting odds for an anytime goalscorer at home, so we’re going to look elsewhere and Dele Alli is the man for our bet.
He has been struggling with injuries throughout the season but looked sharp against Liverpool and should keep his place in the line-up despite the expected return of Son.
From a Crystal Palace point of view, Wilfried Zaha is the obvious selection and his odds are 7/2 with Betfair to get on the scoresheet. Batshuayi is a 10/3 shot to upset the Spurs fans at their new home.
For our selection, we are betting on the rather generous 2/1 with Unibet for Dele Alli to score this week – if Tottenham get a few goals as expected, it would be no surprise to see the England man on the scoresheet.
The last of our Tottenham vs Crystal Palace predictions for this game is a 3-1 Spurs victory. They will want to christen their new stadium with a win but Palace will have their own ideas, and Tottenham need to be careful because Palace have been very good away on the whole.
In their last nine away matches, Crystal Palace have scored 21 times – a great record for a team down the bottom half of the Premier League table – and in that run they have won their last two away Premier League matches (4-1 at Leicester and 3-1 at Burnley).
Tottenham will be desperate to get a winning start at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and that’s the final prediction for the match.

RH on squad fitness: Mamadou Sakho is the only one I can't select at the moment. We're blessed at the moment.
