Wolves are favourites on home soil to win this FA Cup third round clash against fellow Premier League opponents Crystal Palace.

But they have been struggling for wins recently, collecting just one in their last seven fixtures.

So will Palace be able to turn up at Molineux and produce a nice little upset for themselves as they too look for a lift in form?

Wolves Preview – Can Nuno’s men find a win?

One victory in their last seven games is all that Wolves have managed to come up with.

It is a four match winless streak that they are currently on, drawing two of those fixtures.

But they do have a bit of home form going against Crystal Palace, having won the last two.

Those were both 2-0 scoreline successes as well which they collected in both of those successes.

A Wolves 2-0 scoreline to keep the trend going is a 15/2 quote* (odds recorded 18:26 GMT, Thursday 7th January).

They are the favourites in the match outright to complete the job, but the 2-0 scoreline doesn’t appear to be a big option.

Only twice in their last seven games have Wolves managed to score more than one goal in a game.

Also adding to that is that Wolves have not taken a clean sheet since a 2-0 win over Palace in the league back at the end of October.

It is a current quote of 21/20 in the match outright for the wolves victory* (odds recorded 18:26 GMT, Thursday 7th January).

(odds recorded 18:26 GMT, Thursday 7th January)


This will be the first time that Wolves and Crystal Palace have met in the competition since 2010 when Palace claimed a home win.

This will be the sixth time that the two meet in the FA Cup.

Palace currently hold a 3-2 head to head lead in tie-winning outcomes (each of Palace’s three successes were after a replay).

One positive for Wolves is their home form.

They are W3 D3 L1 in their last seven fixtures at Molineux and have beaten Chelsa and drawn with Tottenham in their last two there.

Last season Wolves exited the competition at this Third Round stage against Manchester United.

They have lost 6 of their last 8 third-round ties.


Crystal Palace Preview – Can the Eagles turn the tables on Wolves?

Palace are not coming in hot either to this FA Cup third round tie for which they are the 14/5 underdogs* (odds recorded 18:26 GMT, Thursday 7th January).

The Eagles collected a league win over bottom side Sheffield United in their last fixture, which snapped a run of five without one.

It has been just two victories for Palace in their last nine games (D3 L4) so they certainly have some vulnerabilities.

Out on their travels for this campaign they have lost three of their last five away games (W1 D1).

Palace have failed to score in five of their nine road fixtures in all competitions this season.

So there are going to be some fairly big question marks about their chances in this one.

Boss Roy Hodgson is going to be shuffling his squad around so aren’t likely to be at full strength for this trip.

Just as Wolves were, Palace were eliminated in last season’s FA Cup third round as well.

Crystal Palace have claimed only two wins in their last nine games, home and away combined.

Those were league wins against two relegation-threatened teams, West Brom and Sheff Utd.

In their recent win over the Blades Palace snapped a run of fifteen games without a single clean sheet on the board.

Will that lack of defensive strengths ultimately be their downfall in this tricky away fixture?


Wolves vs Crystal Palace Betting Advice

This should be an interesting fixture really as neither are likely to be at full strength, so therefore things get shaken up.

We fancy both teams to get on the scoresheet because of that and the Both Teams To Score option is at 19/20* (odds recorded 18:26 GMT, Thursday 7th January).

But we can take that further and try to pick out a winner from this one.


Key Facts – Wolves vs Crystal Palace Betting Tip

  • Wolves trials 2-3 against Palace in five previous FA Cup ties
  • Wolves have won one of their last seven games
  • Crystal Palace have only won 2 of their last 9 fixtures


We would have to swing towards the home success because Wolves are a tough side to beat at Molineux.

We think that Crystal Palace won’t quite have the punch going forward to get the better of them on the day.

There’s enough in that 21/20 quote on a Wolves outright to get stuck into for FA Cup betting* (odds recorded 18:26 GMT, Thursday 7th January).
