Newly promoted Huddersfield will head to South London to play their first game of the season against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. This game is between two sides that will probably be fighting for the spots of safety at the end of the season so getting wins early in the season will be beneficial for both sides.
Huddersfield is a team that scraped through last season in order to gain promotion. This team did not look impressive but did enough to get the spot in the Premier League. That being said, this is going to be a hard test for the side as they are away from home and this side relies a lot on their home fans to get them wins. Huddersfield has a good manager but they lack skills on the pitch and that could cost them this season.
Crystal Palace, on the other hand, has made some good signings and will look to further build from last season. Wilfred Zaha remained at the club along with Yohan Cabaye meaning that the South London club has what it takes to hold onto players. This game should be a win for the Eagles and I am predicting that they will win with ease since they are at home and are a much more talented side that Huddersfield.
As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a good price on Crystal Palace winning this game and as a result, I think it is the way to go in terms of betting. The Eagles are at home and they are better so it makes sense.
