#BetYourWay: Our 40/1 selection for Brighton v Crystal Palace

Here’s Tom Clee‘s pick to get you started…


Match to end as a draw –

Brighton have only lost at home to Man City and Liverpool this season, though the points have been shared in six of their last eight at the Amex.

That includes a 0-0 against Palace in November, which was the first of five draws during the Eagles’ last eight games. 

Crystal Palace to win the second half –

Eight of Palace’s last 10 goals have been scored in the second half, with last week’s turnaround at Southampton the latest in a string of recent comebacks.

They’re certainly capable of another against a Brighton side that twice lost a lead against Bournemouth on New Year’s Day.

Crystal Palace to score a header

Five of the last eight goals conceded by Brighton were headers, with two of the other three coming from set-pieces.

That trend could easily continue against Palace, who have gone back to basics under Roy Hodgson and boast plenty of aerial threat. 

Crystal Palace to get over 1.5 cards

The visitors have picked up 19 yellow cards in their last seven games, including five on two separate occasions.

That average is unlikely to come down in what has come to be known as the M23 derby.
