Premier League Betting: Crystal Palace v Fulham
By Covers.com

This week's Barclay's Premier League fixture list concludes with an all-London affair as Fulham faces Crystal Palace from Selhurst Park. The two clubs are toiling in and around the relegation zone and both will be desperate for three points.

We talk to Aron Black of Bet365 about the action coming in on this London Derby.

Crystal Palace v Fulham (+175, +230, +180)

Why bet Crystal Palace: Palace has just one victory on the season but it did come on the club's home pitch. Granted, it was a victory over dreadful Sunderland, but three points is three points. The Eagles have lost four straight, but each has come at the hands of a top-11 side in the table. Palace's main goal is to stay in the top flight, so three points at home to Fulham is mandatory.

Key players out/doubtful: Glenn Murray, Jonathan Williams, Jack Hunt, Patrick McCarthy

Why bet Fulham: The Cottagers are four points ahead of Palace in the league table, but when you look at the squad, they should be much better. The strike force of Dimitar Berbatov and Darren Bent has not worked for Martin Jol's side. But perhaps it's playmaker Bryan Ruiz who has let the side down most. The Costa Rican has been hit-or-miss to start the season, but played well versus Stoke in his last match and must find consistency.

Key players out/doubtful: Maarten Stekelenburg, Matthew Briggs

2012-13 fixture result: N/A

Key betting note: Fulham has played under the 2.5 goal total in seven of its last eight away games in the league.

Where the action is: "There are not going to be many teams who will be offered up at the likes of +180 at Selhurst Park, so its natural that Fulham see the bulk of the action, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the price on them goes shorter before kickoff on Monday. Over 2.5 goals will appeal to many at +108, as well as both teams to score at -125. For the scorers, Fulham strikers Dimitar Berbatov and Darren Bent lead the First Goalscorer market at +600 and +700 respectively for Fulham, with the Eagles Dwight Gayle also in that mix at +650."
