Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
After a good start, Bournemouth started to show some signs of tiredness. Especially on the road, and because of that, winning at home is imperative for Eddi Howe’s guys. Palace is playing with the nerves of their fans, as they continue to oscillate in their performances. They are still not reaching the full potential of their abilities, which is a bit disappointing for all the Eagles supporters.
The Cherries were blown into pieces at Turf Moore last week, as Burnley demolished their defense and won 4:0. Palace played only 0:0 at home against Newcastle, but just three days later, the Eagles eliminated West Brom away from home in the EFL with 0:3.
Howe’s troops are still in the upper part of the table, and that is mostly because they had an excellent opening of the season. Latest event against the Clarets showed that Bournemouth has to get back on track quickly. Otherwise, they are to be departed below the 10th place pretty soon. Now, what is visible is that they started to underachieve in away matches. Yes, the opponents were vicious, Burnley and Chelsea, but the Cherries were totally inferior in both of those fixtures, not being able to score at least one goal. However, they are very confident at home, with five games played this season in all competitions, in which they haven’t lost in any. But they also managed to net at least twice in all of them, which is a fantastic achievement for these boys. Previous three finished with over 2.5 goals.
The whole Selhurst Park except, of course, the guests, was expecting to see the first victory of the Palace at home this season. In the end, they had to go home very disappointed, because their club played without goals against Newcastle. Only three days later, another win on the road was recorded after they dismantled WBA in Birmingham. This was the fourth win of the season for the Eagles away from Selhurst, and in each of them, they managed to keep clean sheets. What a fascinating fact, when having in mind that Palace is searching for a triumph at home. We have one more thing to add and that is considered goals. Most recent five overall fixtures this team played, didn’t saw both sides scoring.

We were in a tough position when we had to evaluate who is going to win in this match. Both sides are playing well when looking the specific circumstances. The Cherries are fantastic at home, while Palace seems excellent on the road. A draw is the most compromising outcome, since we really can’t choose one side over another. On the other hand, we have a suggestion which is very realistic, and there are no doubts about it. Both teams to score. Despite the previous matches Palace played, they will not be able to protect their net, but on the other side, neither will Bournemouth.
