The Eagles have the second worst home record in the Premier League this season but should finish strongly against the Terriers on Saturday afternoon

Huddersfield Town could see their Premier League relegation confirmed this weekend.

With just 14 points to their name, the Terriers will have their fate sealed if they lose to Crystal Palace plus Burnley and Southampton both take maximum points.

Palace are made 1/2 (1.50) favourites by 888Sport, who are 6/1 (7.0) about the underdogs winning just their fourth game of the top-flight campaign at Selhurst Park. A draw is available at 16/5 (4.20) with the same firm.

Roy Hodgson's men haven't fared well on home soil. Their 13-point tally is second only to Huddersfield's eight in terms of home records in the Premier League this season.

That said, the Eagles have hit a bit of form recently. Despite a painful defeat to rivals Brighton last time out, the hosts have won three of their previous six matches in this competition and should feel confident of a victory against the worst team in the division. At 1/2 (1.50) though, few punters will see them as a betting prospect worth considering outside of a multiple.

Instead, take the 4/5 (1.80) about Palace winning the second half with 888Sport. This wager sees the scoreline effectively reset to 0-0 at half time.

Huddersfield have scored just seven times after the interval this term, conceding 28 times at the other end.

Hodgson's side have netted 61 per cent of their Premier League goals in the second 45 minutes of matches this term including 14 in the final 15 minutes. That equates to 38.8% of their total strikes coming in this period, so the hosts can often rally late in games.

This selection has paid out in four of Huddersfield's last five league matches and 17 times overall this season. At 4/5 (1.80) it offers a much more attractive way to back Palace while taking advantage of one of the visitors' biggest weaknesses to date.
