Match Summary

One to Watch: Wilfried Zaha

Zaha will famously be remembered as the great Sir Alex Ferguson’s final transfer before his shock retirement. The Scot saw something special in the Palace graduate and the belief remains that if Ferguson continued in the Old Trafford dugout, Zaha would have flourished.

Nevertheless, the 25-year-old has gone on to forge a promising career and is arguably the best player outside of the top six. The electric wide man now has the consistency to match his unquestionable ability and Palace are a completely different proposition when he’s fit and available. The Ivory Coast international is 23/10 in the anytime market and it promises to be a long afternoon for direct rival Jonny.

Roy Hodgson is expected to stick with attacking trio Wilfried Zaha, Andros Townsend and Jordan Ayew with Max Meyer in support. Palace will be without forward Christian Benteke who has an ongoing knee issue.

Visitors Wolves extended their unbeaten run to five after the recent success against Southampton. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have memorably held both Manchester clubs and look well placed for a comfortable mid-table finish on their return to English football’s top flight.

Portuguese midfielders Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho have starred while former Middlesbrough speedster Adama Traore has impressed from the bench.

Crystal Palace vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Wilfried Zaha will again be the Crystal Palace danger man

Crystal Palace finished the 2017-18 campaign narrowly missing out on a top-half finish, despite the disastrous start that saw Frank de Boer relieved of his duties. The Dutch legend was replaced by Hodgson and the Eagles subsequently sealed their participation in the Premier League for a fifth consecutive term.

In contrast, travelling party Wolves returned to the top flight as Championship winners and continue to impress. The campaign is still in its relative infancy but Nuno’s men are shaping up to be one of the best promoted sides in recent years. The Wanderers will have witnessed what Sean Dyche’s Burnley achieved and a Europa League berth could become a realistic aim as the campaign progresses.

Premier League predictions for this match-up reveal Palace at 13/8 to claim all three points. The home side have picked up some memorable results at Selhurst Park over the years and can rely on fervent backing from the supporters.

Further football predictions show Wolves at 7/4 to record a fourth triumph from just eight fixtures. The Wanderers are full of confidence after going toe-to-toe with two of the best sides in the league and know a similar performance is likely to yield another victory.

The stalemate is 21/10 and could be the Eagles’ best chance of taking something from the contest. The goalscoring onus will once again fall at the feet of Zaha and the hitman may need to come up with another moment of genius if Palace are chasing the match.

Luka Milivojević is 16/1 to open the scoring in this Premier League preview. The Eagles skipper represents great value as both the nominated spot kick taker and first in line at set pieces. The Serbian finished last year as the top scorer at the club with 10 strikes.

Raul Jimenez is 11/2 in the same first scorer market and has worked tirelessly as the lone striker in the team. The Mexican has a very credible two goals and two assists from his first seven appearances. Other popular football betting tips for the weekend include Ivan Cavaleiro at 8/1 in the last scorer market while the both teams to score predictions offer is priced at 19/20.
