Neither is very good. Use this:

Can/Could you please explain the difference between X and Y?

The comma is wrong.

"Could you please explain to me what is the difference between X and Y." - This is OK, but it is a bit clumsy because it asks a reported question directly.

"Could you please explain to me what the difference is between X and Y." -This is normal.

"Could you please explain to me what the difference between X and Y is." -This is also normal, but only for short sentences like this one. An Englishman will not wait forever for the verb. The following would not work: "Could you please explain to me what the difference between the type of tiger that lives in the deep forest and the type that roams the steppes is."
