Hull City v Crystal Palace tips – expect more goals at the KC Stadium
We’re tipping another high-scoring encounter when Palace head north on Saturday
October 1st, 2014
Last weekend’s match between Hull and Manchester City went according to plan after we tipped the 4-2 scoreline and we can see plenty of goals being scored at the same ground on Saturday.
Steve Bruce’s Tigers have become more of an attacking force although this approach isn’t yet yielding dividends. A return of six points from six matches means Hull are sitting just above the drop zone and the manager will be considering a change in tactics.
Perhaps he’ll keep the faith in this offensive approach for at least one more game, with the team coming back from 2-0 down to draw level with Manchester City last weekend only to lose the match 4-2.
We should also note that Hull led 2-0 at St James’ Park before a late comeback from Newcastle and the presence of Abel Hernandez in the side adds an extra dimension as he looks to pair up with Nikica Jelavic to positive effect.
Hull are a best price 11/10 to win this game although they will face a Palace side who have claimed back-to-back wins against Everton and Leicester to rocket up the league, with Neil Warnock getting the best from his Eagles team.
They scored five goals in the above matches and also managed three when drawing with Newcastle which suggests they are more than good enough to get something from the game.
However, we’re going to go for a high-scoring encounter and Over 2.5 Goals is surprisingly big at 23/20, with a 2-2 scoreline potentially on the cards as both teams look to attack freely.
