It’s not that long ago that Crystal Palace had a reputation as a yo-yo club. A combination of the experience of Roy Hodgson, the sound running of the club and some high quality players has seen Palace firmly establish themselves in the Premier League.
It’s not been all plain sailing for the Eagles over recent seasons. They have flirted with relegation and will need to make the 40-point mark their first priority once again in the 2019/20 campaign.
There are the makings of a good side in South London though providing Crystal Palace can retain Wilfried Zaha’s services and invest the money earned from the sale of Aaron-Wan Bissaka to Manchester United.
Crystal Palace Premier League Betting Odds
Crystal Palace are much more concerned about events at the bottom of the Premier League table than the top. The Eagles aren’t going to win the title at 2000/1 but nor are they likely to be relegated at 11/2.
Crystal Palace Outright Betting Odds
Crystal Palace have had a couple of decent cup runs in the last few seasons. Their attacking quality and defensive organisation under Hodgson suggests that they could make an impact in the FA Cup this season providing they get a bit of momentum.
Rather than backing the Eagles to win the famous trophy at 50/1 it could be worth backing them on a match-by-match basis.

Crystal Palace Tips and Predictions
As fierce as the relegation zone is going be, we’re convinced that Crystal Palace have enough about them to stay out of trouble. The bookies agree with that so there isn’t much value to be had about backing them to stay up at a general 1/9. There is a limit to how far this current side can go though so we recommend backing them to finish in the bottom half at 3/10.
