Form

Crystal Palace currently sit 14th in the Premier League with 28 points from their 27 matches so far. The Eagles have earned four points from three matches under new boss, Oliver Glasner and were unlucky not to leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with at least a point last weekend. Crystal Palace’s most recent game at Selhurst Park produced a comfortable 3-0 win over strugglers, Burnley.

Luton Town are Saturday’s visitors to south east London and do so on the back of a poor run of results. Luton Town are 18th in the Premier League, four points from safety after taking just 20 points from 26 matches so far. The Hatters have lost four straight league games and are winless in their past six matches in all competitions.

Luton Town claimed a 2-1 win in the reverse fixture at Kenilworth Road in November. In their first ever meeting in the Premier League, second half goals from Tedan Mengi and Jacob Brown sealed three points for The Hatters.

The last time Luton Town visited Selhurst Park was in the Championship back in February 2007. Crystal Palace emerged victorious thanks to a Clinton Morrison brace.

Betting tips

Oliver Glasner has earned a modest four points from a possible nine since taking charge at Crystal Palace but there were real signs of encouragement in those three games, especially in the win against Burnley. We’re tipping Crystal Palace to win a fourth home league game in the last five at odds of 8/11.

Both teams have scored in each of Luton Town’s last nine matches in all competitions whilst only Sheffield United have a worst defensive record away from home in the Premier League this season. Meanwhile, eight of Crystal Palace’s last nine league games have produced over 2.5 match goals. We like the look of both teams to score and over 2.5 match goals at 4/5 and 17/20 respectively.

If you’re looking for some real value in the goalscorer markets then Carlton Morris is your man. The Luton Town forward has taken over the captaincy from long-term absentee, Tom Lockyer and he’s led by example in recent weeks. Morris has scored in four of Luton Town’s last five league games and is available at 5/2 to score at any time on Saturday.

Crystal Palace’s late surrender at Spurs last weekend will be an all too familiar sight for their fans this season. The Eagles have conceded within the last 15 minutes of matches in the Premier League on 19 occasions and bet365’s offer of a goal after 76:59 could be the best bet of the weekend at 5/6.
