Tottenham will have to travel across London this weekend as the Spurs go to Selhurst Park to play Crystal Palace as they look to jump the top teams to the EPL title. Both teams will have a lot of want to win this match and with that there is always excitement since we should expect goals all around.

Crystal Palace come into this game after a poor run of form which includes a loss to relegation bound Aston Villa. Last week Palace loss 4-0 to Manchester City and this is just an indication of their poor run. That being said, this team is very entertaining to watch and they have a lot of talent in the team so Pardew will hope that his men can bounce back and return to their best.

Tottenham on the other hand will hope that they can win here with some ease so that they can continue their good run. This team is very talented and they are working well as a unit which wants to do well. This game should be a test since Palace are a good side but they should win. I expect Harry Kane to score again since he does that so well and I also expect them to concede since Palace are good going forward.

Overall I think that Spurs will win this match but at the odds we are getting, there is no value in betting on the outright result. As far as betting with a handicap, its hard to judge how well Tottenham will do away from home so that is not a good bet in my opinion. As far as betting goes, I think taking both teams to score is the way to go. Spurs have managed to concede goals regularly and Crystal Palace are a good attacking side so I expect both teams to hit the back of the net this Saturday.

Pick:
Both Teams to Score
