Palace picked up six home wins last season – all against teams in the bottom half – and bet365 make them slight 13/8 (2.63) favourites to take the points on Sunday.
Brighton’s only win this season came on the road and they are 17/10 (2.70) to double their points tally with victory in London.
The sides played out a 1-1 draw in the corresponding fixture last term and a repeat result is offered at 23/10 (3.30).
Patrick van Aanholt, Gary Cahill and James Tomkins are all injured for the hosts, but on-loan Michy Batshuayi is able to play after being ineligible against parent club Chelsea last time out.
Graham Potter is sweating on the fitness of Davy Propper, Tariq Lamptey and Alireza Jahanbakhsh, but Florin Andone and Christian Walton are out.
Only six Premier League teams managed fewer than 40 goals last season and these two were both amongst that group, but it has been a completely different tale this time around.
The three goals that Palace scored against Man United were more than they managed in a single fixture in all of the 2019-20 campaign, whilst Brighton’s impressive tally of eight goals this term is bettered by only six sides.
Given that Roy Hodgson’s side have shipped nine goals in their last three games, the Seagulls will have plenty of confidence that they can continue their good form in front of goal.
Brighton are yet to fully reap the rewards of their goalscoring prowess this season and they should be afforded plenty of chances against a struggling and depleted Palace defence.
With that in mind, the 13/8 (2.63) price on the Seagulls to score over 1.5 goals with bet365 offers significant odds-against value for this clash at Selhurst Park.
