Wolves head to Selhurst Park for the opening Super Sunday game with back-to-back wins behind them, while Palace will be hoping to build on good displays against Brentford and Plymouth Argyle.

The Eagles are taken to do exactly that against a Wolves side who remain among the frontrunners for relegation this term.

Crystal Palace vs Wolves Tips

  • Crystal Palace to win @ 10/11
  • Both Teams To Score – Yes @ 10/11

Team news

Palace remain without Michael Olise, while summer signing Matheus Franca is still sidelined. The Eagles added Rob Holding and Dean Henderson late in the transfer window, but neither player is expected to feature.

Outside of Hwang Hee-Chan, Wolves have a clean bill of health for this clash. After scoring in his last two games, expect a start for Sasa Kalajdzic.

Crystal Palace to win @ 10/11

While both teams have defensive troubles, they’re more severe for the visitors. Wolves are conceding enough chances to concede twice per game and that could be enough to sink them at Selhurst Park.

Wolves lost 12 of 19 away trips last term and the Eagles were unbeaten against sides from 13th and below, winning six of eight games including a victory over this weekend’s opposition. They impressed going forward at Brentford last weekend and after hitting four goals at a decent Plymouth side in midweek the Eagles should overpower Wolves.

In terms of a correct score selection, Crystal Palace to win 2-1 stands out at 15/2. That scoreline landed in this fixture last season and it landed in three of the Eagles’ home wins last term.

Wolves too suffered four 2-1 losses last season and given their xG against tally is just under two, look to Palace to secure a 2-1 win.

Both Teams To Score – Yes @ 10/11

Neither of these two sides are regarded as attacking, but that shouldn’t automatically result in this being written off as a low-scoring clash.

Wolves have scored in their last two games after failing to convert some great chances against Manchester United. However, over the course of their first three games, it has been clear that defensively they’re vulnerable.

Gary O’Neill’s side have conceded five times, the bulk of which came in a 4-1 loss to Brighton. However, their underlying numbers suggest more widespread issues. The visitors have conceded at least 1.9 Expected Goals in each game so far, so I’m not confident in their backline despite their recent clean sheets.

The Eagles have conceded in each of their last three matches and they’ve conceded in seven of their last nine Premier League games. As a result, both teams to score stands out at a shade under evens.
