Relegation battles don’t come much more important than Crystal Palace’s clash with Hull, but we’re backing the Eagles to hold their nerve and secure a crucial point at Selhurst Park.
Palace go into this game four points above the Tigers and will stay up if avoiding defeat, just as they did when drawing at KCOM Stadium back in December.
Looking at the Crystal Palace vs Hull odds, we reckon 11/5 for a stalemate stands out.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Crystal Palace were torn apart by Manchester City in a 5-0 rout at Etihad Stadium last weekend, with the Eagles suffering a third straight loss after previously winning six of eight.
Sam Allardyce admitted tensions will be high going into this contest, with a trip to Manchester United to come on the closing weekend.
However, he has urged his players to think back to that impressive run of results, which included victories over Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool.
Allardyce declared: “If they get that positive thinking going right from the start of the week, inevitably it will help them with what could be a nervy state of affairs next Sunday.”
This could be a cagey contest, so 13/2 for a 0-0 scoreline also features in our Crystal Palace vs Hull betting tips.
A Look At Hull City’s Betting Odds
Hull blew what had looked a golden opportunity to boost their survival hopes when beaten 2-0 at home by basement dwellers Sunderland, who are already doomed to dropping out of the top flight.
The Tigers also face a daunting final fixture when entertaining Tottenham, but did show in a goalless draw at Southampton on their last away-day that they will never give in without a fight.
Defender Andy Robertson described the Black Cats defeat as “one of those days” and commented: “For the first 60 we’ve probably dominated them without really creating clear-cut chances and that’s what we needed to do.”
With both teams drawing a blank for the last couple of weeks, 83/100 for under 2.5 goals in this game is sure to attract support.
