Crystal Palace to win to nil    Best Bet 2/1
Wilfried Zaha to score and Crystal Palace win 13/5

With three wins out of four, Roy Hodgson's Palace have found a bit of form at a crucial time of the season and they will aim to down a Brighton side that beat bottom club Huddersfield Town last weekend, but had previously struggled to put a string of positive results together.

Palace, inspired by Wilfried Zaha's fine form, are entitled to be favourites for this contest and the 17/20 with BetVictor for a home win is more than fair for a side that have been surging up the lower echelons of the table, and it could be fairly convincing win for the Eagles.

Brighton may have won their previous meeting 3-1, but they have struggled to find the back of the net with any significant frequency in the league, and that will worry boss Chris Hughton, as they are one of the lowest scorers in the division.

So, with that in mind, it's not only worth backing Palace to win, but a Palace win to nil looks a cracking bet at 2/1 is worth snapping up, while a Palace win with under 2.5 goals in the game makes appeal as well at 9/4 with Betfair Sportsbook.

The above-mentioned Zaha has scored five goals in his last five appearances, so he is worth keeping on the right side of and the tricky winger is 11/2 to score first, while the 13/5 with Paddy Power for Zaha to score and Palace to win is another cracking bet in a match that can see the home side prevail.
