The last Premier League match of Round 23 sees Chelsea make the short trip to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace. Both of these teams have had a league season to forget, with Chelsea sitting mid-table and Palace looking at a relegation battle if they do not pull their fingers out soon. Will Chelsea take one step closer to assuring a mid-table finish or will Palace take a step further from the Relegation Zone? Let us crack on with this prediction and these questions will be answered in due course.

🏆 Crystal Palace vs Chelsea: Who Will Win?

Crystal Palace are one of those Premier League clubs that really does not have much ambition each season. Their main aim is usually just to stay in England's first division, but they are running the risk of not achieving that aim this season. They are currently sitting in 14th place in the table, just five points above the drop zone. In their previous 10 matches, they have picked up just 9 points, so you can see why they are struggling in this campaign.

Chelsea have spent an awful lot of money in recent seasons, and there are signs that their expensively assembled squad are starting to click. They are in the final of the Carabao Cup and beat Villa 3-1 in the FA Cup last Wednesday, although Villa looked like their minds were elsewhere - probably on the Champions League and their European campaign. Not only are Chelsea mid-table in the league table, but they are in mid-table in the form table, picking up 15 points from the previous 30 on offer.

The Blues have a much better squad than the Eagles and, as I said, there are signs that they are just starting to click as a team. If Chelsea play how they did against Villa on Wednesday evening, then I see nothing but an away win here. As for the scoreline, let us go for a 2-1.

My Prediction: 🏆 Crystal Palace 1 Chelsea 2 ⚽

💯 Crystal Palace vs Chelsea Match Odds

In football, you can bet on any aspect of the game that you like. Want to bet on the number of corners? You can do so. How about the number of throw-ins? Yes. Want to try and predict which player will be booked? Go ahead. However, the three markets that I focus on in my predictions can be seen below:

  • Match winner
  • Over/under 2.5 goals
  • Both teams to score

When it comes to football betting, new UK betting sites and established ones will have plenty of options, but they have not all been created equally. Below I have given you five quality bookies that British football fans can register with as well alongside the odds that they are offering for the three markets that I just listed above.

If you want to find out the kind of free bets that these bookmakers are offering British football fans, then click on the logos in the tables. By clicking on these, you will be taken to our reviews for these bookies.

Crystal Palace vs Chelsea: Match Winner Odds

Chelsea are the overwhelming favourites to win this match with the bookies. This can probably be put down to the horrendous record that Palace have against their London rivals. They have not beaten Chelsea since October of 2017, which is a run of 13 defeats in a row. To say that Chelsea are Palace's bogey team would probably be the understatement of the year so far. Below you can find the match winner odds for this Palace v Chelsea match:

Team
Crystal Palace4.454.454.504.754.80
Draw3.803.803.903.853.85
Chelsea1.741.741.761.701.71

Crystal Palace vs Chelsea: Both Teams To Score Odds

The bookies are quite sure of the fact that both Crystal Palace and Chelsea will score in this game, and I agree with them here. In the next section of this guide, I will give my reasons for agreeing with them. For now, I will provide you with the odds that some top British bookies are offering for this market in relation to this Palace v Chelsea game:

Team
Yes1.691.691.701.701.76
No2.092.092.051.962.02

Crystal Palace vs Chelsea: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

Since the bookies think that Chelsea will win this match and are also predicting that both teams will go on to score, it makes sense that they are backing over 2.5 goals to be scored in this game. I also believe that there will be more than three goals scored and, once again, I will explain why in the following section. For now, just concern yourself with the over/under 2.5 goals odds that are being offered for this game:

Team
Over 2.51.751.751.771.731.79
Under 2.51.971.972.001.982.05

✔️ Crystal Palace vs Chelsea - Betting Tips

This section is dedicated to my football betting tips for this Crystal Palace vs Chelsea match. Before I go ahead and give my match betting advice, I just want to remind you about the importance of gambling responsibly and to never gamble with money which you cannot afford to potentially lose.

  • Tip 1: Bet on Chelsea to win: Chelsea have a really good record against Crystal Palace and are clearly the Eagle's bogey team. In the last two decades, Palace have only won four matches against their London-based rivals - this is a total of 24 matches. Furthermore, Chelsea are in better form than their rivals and have better players at their disposal. So, it is easy to see why I am backing the Blues. You can find odds of 1.76 at 10Bet Sport for a Chelsea win.
  • Tip 2: Bet on both teams to score: Out of Chelsea's previous ten matches, both teams have scored on seven occasions, while both teams have scored in seven of Palace's previous ten games too. Out of the matches that have been played at Selhurst Park, 64% of them have seen both teams scoring. If you also want to bet on BTTS, then BetUK Sports are currently offering odds of 1.76. It is worthwhile considering putting this BTTS option into an accumulator bet.
  • Tip 3: Bet on over 2.5 goals: The last ten matches between these two teams have seen a total of 29 goals scored, which is an average of 2.9 goals per match. I know that only 55% of Palace's home games have seen three or more goals, but I think Chelsea will win this match without being able to keep the Eagles out. Additionally, 14 of the previous 20 matches that these two teams have played have seen over 2.5 goals. At the current moment in time, BetUK Sports are offering odds of 1.79 for over 2.5 goals.
  • Tip 4: Bet on Chelsea to win 2-1: If you are the kind of person who likes to bet on the correct score of a match because of the enticing odds that are usually on offer, then I recommend that you consider betting on a 2-1 win for the away team. Betiton Sport are currently offering odds of 7.45 for this to be the correct score.

1️⃣Crystal Palace Update

Crystal Palace are known as the Eagles, but it has been a long time since they were soaring high. In recent years, they should have changed their name to the Penguins as they have been pretty grounded. At this stage in the season, they are in 14th place and are just five points above the dreaded Drop Zone.

They will be looking nervously over their shoulders, and I reckon that they will be in a relegation scrap between now and the end of the season. For what it is worth, I do think that they will stay up. If they want to give their fans a less nervous end to the season, they will need to improve their current form which has seen them win just two of their previous ten games.

2️⃣Chelsea Update

With the amount of money that Chelsea have spent in recent seasons, their fans would expect them to at least be battling it out for a Champions League spot. However, the most likely scenario is that they will finish somewhere between 8th and 10th place. Their fans do have a final in the Carabao Cup to look forward to at least. They are 15 points adrift of Aston Villa, who are in prime position for a UCL spot, so they would need a miracle to get themselves into next season's Champions League.
