Premier League: Southampton v Palace betting preview, TV details and team news
Improving Saints should get the better of relegation rivals Palace
The markets seem pretty convinced about Southampton and Crystal Palace's survival prospects but both are averaging fewer than one point per game and whoever loses this contest will remain in the thick of the relegation scrap.
Palace have caught the eye with their recent victories over Manchester City and Tottenham but have often fallen short against the teams around them.
They may also struggle against the Saints, who can continue their improvement under Ralph Hasenhuttl with a third successive league win.
