What Trueform says for Huddersfield vs Crystal Palace
Our Trueform chart highlights how Huddersfield and Crystal Palace have both struggled to settle into a rhythm at the start of the new Premier League season.
However, the Terriers did put in an encouraging performance at Everton last time out and that gives them a slight edge in our book.
Punters can get 21/10 for a home victory here and that is tempting enough to be our first Huddersfield vs Crystal Palace prediction.
A Look At Huddersfield Town’s Betting Odds
Huddersfield may still have been recovering from heavy defeats against Chelsea and Manchester City when playing out a drab goalless draw with Cardiff at this venue.
Getting that point on the board seemed to inspire an improved effort in the subsequent 1-1 stalemate at Goodison Park, though.
Philip Billing’s opener came against the run of play but Town did well to hold on once Dominic Calvert-Lewin equalised for Everton quickly after.
“I’m happy with the effort, performance and attitude from the players,” declared David Wagner. “We limited Everton and they only had shots from distance and headers.”
Wagner now wants his players to show “a bit more relaxation on the ball” in order to create opportunities and we’re hoping for an up-tempo display back on home turf.
Last Huddersfield line-up: Lossl, Kongolo, Lowe, Jorgensen, Schindler, Hadergjonaj, Billing, Mooy, Van La Parra, Diakhaby, Mounie.
Huddersfield trio Collin Quaner, Juninho Bacuna and Adama Diakhaby will all be assessed as they seek to overcome minor problems.
Midfielder Jonathan Hogg is still suspended, but goalkeeper Ben Hamer is expected back in contention after a knee injury and will challenge Jonas Lossl.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Crystal Palace opened the campaign with a cracking win at Fulham but have since suffered three straight Premier League defeats against Liverpool, Watford and Southampton.
The Eagles sorely missed talismanic forward Wilfried Zaha when going down 2-0 at Selhurst Park to the Saints, who also had a penalty saved.
Roy Hodgson admitted “Southampton were the better team and deserved it”, although James McArthur hit the bar, while Christian Benteke and Luka Milivojevic also went close when the score was 1-0.
Much will depend on Zaha’s fitness, as he has scored seven of their past nine league goals, but we’re sticking with the hosts and like 21/2 for a 2-1 correct score to complete our Huddersfield vs Crystal Palace betting tips.
Last Palace line-up: Hennessey, Van Aanholt, Sakho, Schlupp, Wan-Bissaka, Kelly, Milivojevic, Townsend, McArthur, Ayew, Benteke.
Palace will be without Benteke because of a knee problem. Zaha (groin) has returned to training and is being monitored.
Defender James Tomkins (calf) has also stepped up his recovery so could be involved, but Scott Dann (knee) and Connor Wickham (calf) remain unavailable.
Everton 1-1 HUDDERSFIELD – Philip Billing
CRYSTAL PALACE 0-2 Southampton
Head-to-head: Huddersfield 0-2 Palace, Palace 1-0 Huddersfield, Palace 0-3 Huddersfield
