Crystal Palace vs Wolves: In-form duo hard to split

Kick-off: 1500, 06/11/2021

Stadium: Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace and Wolves are both on five-match unbeaten runs in the Premier League and a tight tussle is expected at Selhurst Park.

Wanderers have picked up an impressive 13 points out of 15, compared to just seven for their hosts, but the Eagles have had a tougher schedule.

We reckon it is hard to split these in-form outfits and 9/4 for a draw is our first Crystal Palace vs Wolves prediction.

A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds

Palace are coming off an excellent 2-0 triumph at Manchester City, where Wilfried Zaha struck early and Conor Gallagher wrapped it up late on.

The champions dominated possession, despite having Aymeric Laporte sent off, but Palace were resilient at the back and took their chances.

“It was just about getting in their faces and not letting them play,” declared Zaha.

“We know how good they are, but today was about us not letting them play and showing them what we can do. That’s what we did.

“I feel like we’re a threat going forwards, but the difference you see now is that we keep the ball from the back. We keep the ball around the pitch and we make our chances.

“We’re now exploiting the talent we have up front and all around the pitch.”

Palace are definitely progressing under Patrick Vieira but had previously been involved in four straight draws, while four of their five home games this term have ended in stalemate.

With only one 0-0 back in August, 18/5 for a score draw may be worth the extra risk from the Crystal Palace vs Wolves odds.

Last Palace line-up: Guaita, Ward, Mitchell, Guehi, Andersen, Kouyate, McArthur, Gallagher, Ayew, Zaha, Edouard.

Ebere Eze will again be absent for Palace as he recovers from an Achilles injury. Defender Nathan Ferguson has also been out with the same issue.

A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds

Having started out with a trio of defeats, Wolves climbed up to seventh in the table when beating Everton 2-1 on Monday night.

Max Kilman put Wanderers ahead on 28 minutes and Raul Jimenez quickly added his first strike at Molineux since returning from a fractured skull.

Alex Iwobi’s second-half consolation for the Toffees could not stop Bruno Lage from making it four wins out of five.

The manager said: “At the beginning, we played three games with good performances but no points and no goals, but I told the players to keep going, keep believing, don’t put pressure on anyone and the points will come.

“They came with that motivation; we have spent a lot of time working, not just on the pitch but in the meeting room, to understand what we are doing.

“I know the players, I know they can do it and I want more from the guys.”

Without taking anything away from Wolves, they have prevailed in a series of close contests, shading Southampton, Newcastle, Villa and Everton by one-goal margins.

In between, there was a 1-1 draw at Leeds and 11/2 for that scoreline to come up again here completes our Crystal Palace vs Wolves betting tips.

Last Wolves line-up: Jose Sa, Ait Nouri, Coady, Semedo, Kilman, Neves, Saiss, Moutinho, Jimenez, Trincao, Hwang.

Defender Fernando Marcal’s calf injury will keep him out until after the international break. Full-back Jonny (knee), winger Pedro Neto (knee) and midfielder Yerson Mosquera (hamstring) are not expected to return until next year.
