Wolves v Crystal Palace betting tips – back Eagles to soar

We’re struggling to understand why Palace are such big betting outsiders for Friday’s Premier League clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

It’s becoming pretty clear that home advantage doesn’t count for a great deal when it comes to playing in empty stadiums, with Crystal Palace a case in hand considering that they have racked up six of their ten points on the road this season.

Roy Hodgson’s team produced arguably their finest performance of the campaign to claim the three points at Craven Cottage last weekend, with the Eagles sitting eighth in the table and now looking to remain a top-half side in the Premier League.

Why Are Palace Such a Big Price to Win at Molineux?

Roy Hodgson will be confident that his team can get at least a point from their clash in the Midlands considering they have already beaten Fulham and Manchester United on the road. Even when supporters were allowed to watch live football, Palace always had the ability to perform better away from Selhurst Park.

Perhaps the bookies think that they will struggle to get anything against a Wolves side who have the same number of points after six games played, although Wanderers have only won one of their three home matches and were thwarted by Newcastle last weekend.

Are Wolves Really Value at Odds-On in the Betting?

Nuno Espirito Santo continues his fine work at Molineux but one wonders about whether it’s sensible to punt Wolves at odds-on for this clash considering that they are only averaging one goal per game at the moment and seem over-reliant on Raul Jimenez for goals.

The Mexican has scored 66.6% of his team’s goals so far and has popped up with the opener in the past two matches, although there isn’t a lot of firepower aside from him and we should note that this team tend to operate a safety-first approach to matches.

What Are the Best Bets for Wolves v Palace?

We really do think these are two evenly-matched teams and we’re therefore happy to back Crystal Palace with half a goal start considering that you will win this bet if the Eagles either draw or win the game. Braver punters might even plump for Palace to win the game and there are big odds available.

While Jimenez has been stealing the show for Wolves, it’s worth noting that Wilfried Zaha has scored in four of Palace’s six matches this season and we think he represents a big price on the anytime scorer market.

The Ivory Coast international is on spot kicks for his team and might enjoy trying to counter against Wolves on the break, with the back three not renowned for blistering pace and we’re happy to take a chance on Zaha.

BETTING TIP
Crystal Palace +0.5 @ 23/25
Wilfried Zaha to score @ 7/2
