With more draws than any other team in the Championship (13 in 35 games) as well as being the team most likely to draw at home (eight draws in 16 games) it doesn’t take too much deduce that a draw is the most likely result when Crystal Palace host Hull.
For if Palace are the draw kings of the division, then Hull are rapidly emerging as the chief pretenders to the throne.
The Tigers have drawn six of their last eight matches, although Palace show no sign of moving aside at the top of the draw division having matched that form.
And it is not only against other teams that Crystal Palace and Hull are likely to be involved in draws: the last three meetings at Selhurst Park between the two have ended in a draw, as have five of the last seven home and away.
The only apparent reason not to back the draw is because of a nagging feeling that the pick is just too… well, obvious.
Priced at 2/1 in bwin’s 3Way football betting market, the draw is surely therefore the best option, especially as a Crystal Palace win is at 3/2 and a Hull success is at 19/10.

The obvious bets do not stop with the draw – another one comes in the form of under 2.5 goals, as reflected by odds of 53/100.
Only four of Palace’s 16 home games have featured more than two goals, while only four of Hull’s 17 away games fall into the over 2.5 goals category.
So it seems that a low-scoring draw is on the cards at Selhurst Park on Saturday, pointing to a 0-0 or 1-1 final score at odds of 11/2 and 9/2 respectively.
And with Palace’s last two games finishing 1-1 and the scoreline being their most popular result in the last 20 games, this looks to be the best option.
Recommended bet: Crystal Palace and Hull to draw @ 2/1
