Crystal Palace’s promotion bid has lost a bit of momentum of late, the Eagles having won of just one of their last five but Ian Holloway’s men have nevertheless only lost once since August and they should be able to get back on the winning trail as they face off-colour Huddersfield.
Without a victory in six, the Terriers are dropping down the table rapidly and conceding goals left, right and centre so there’s plenty to like about Coral’s 4/5 for the hosts to come out on top at Selhurst Park, where bet365 quote an equally enticing 8/11 for the clash to produce three or more goals.
The real value however, could be in a bet on who will grab the first of those. Palace front man Glenn Murray currently tops the Championship scoring charts with an impressive 20 and has struck a dozen times in his last eight appearances. Up against Town’s somewhat flaky defence he could have a field day and at 10/3 (Coral) he’s a great price to break the deadlock.
Holloway’s charges could actually find themselves top of the pile on Saturday night because current leaders Cardiff are 21/20 at Ladbrokes to lose out at Leicester. The Bluebirds don’t travel too well and lost their hundred percent home record to lowly Peterborough last week so they could be vulnerable against a Foxes team with an excellent record at the King Power Stadium.
