Crystal Palace v Huddersfield Betting: Eagles set to maul newly promoted Terriers

Frank de Boer's reign as Eagles manager should start with three points against David Wagner's Terriers who should find it tough going at Selhurst Park

The Premier League is back this weekend and Crystal Palace are strongly fancied to get off to a winning start, with Frank de Boer's men facing top flight newcomers Huddersfield Town in his first game.

De Boer is an interesting appointment for the Eagles, with the shock departure of former England boss Sam Allardyce allowing them to bring in a more exotic appointment.

A run of four successive Eredivisie titles with Ajax made De Boer's managerial name, but a short spell at Inter - he lasted only three months in Milan before being sacked - was a big hit to his reputation.


But with the Terriers looking highly likely to return to the Championship despite David Wagner's canny leadership, a price of 5/6 (1.83) with dabblebet for Palace to beat Huddersfield should give punters a solid start to the campaign.

Palace have been quiet in the transfer market, but having ended last season with wins over the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool there was no need for a revolution at Selhurst Park.

Jairo Riedewald, who De Boer knows from his time at Ajax, is a solid upgrade in defence and midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has the pedigree to thrive with regular football in his loan spell from Chelsea.

The Dutchman should enjoy working with the likes of Wilfried Zaha, who kicked on a level last season and can become one of the Premier League's top wingers this term, while Yohan Cabaye is a high-class central midfield option.


Christian Benteke guarantees goals in attack and handling the big Belgian is likely to be a rude awakening to life in the top-flight for Town, who are tasting Premier League action for the first time in the club's history.

There is a lot to like about Wagner but his squad looks to lack the quality required despite decent investment in the last couple of months. The 5/6 (1.83) on offer with dabblebet for Crystal Palace to beat Huddersfield is therefore great value this weekend.

Palace battered West Brom 4-0 in their last home game back in May and those seeking a slightly more ambitious price for their game against the Terriers could take the 2/1 (3.00) with dabblebet for Palace -1 on the handicap market, a bet that requires the Eagles to win by at least a two-goal margin.
