DEFEAT at Hull extended Huddersfield Town’s winless streak to a worrying six matches.
And with a trip to promotion-chasing Crystal Palace up next, bookmakers expect that sequence to lengthen.
The Eagles are bet365’s 8/11 favourites for the points at Selhurst Park, where BetVictor post 4/1 against a Town triumph.
And it’s 14/5 via Stan James to finish all square.
The latter looks set to be well backed given Palace’s last couple have been inconclusive and the spoils have been shared on the last five occasions Town have visited them.
Similarly, you can bank on there being plenty of punters tackling a third consecutive 2-2 scoreline for the Eagles at 14/1 with Skybet.
Paddy Power rate Simon Grayson’s charges at 5/2 in the ‘Draw No Bet’ market and it’s 11/2 via BetVictor for scores to be level at the end of each half.
Given they are underdogs, Town are helped In the handicaps, Stan James handing them a goal start at even money.
But of more interest to travelling fans will be William Hill’s chunky 14/1 marked against a 2-1 Town triumph.
Alternatively, Ladbrokes offer 6/1 about an away success by a one-goal margin and there’s also Stan James’ 10/1 for Grayson’s troops to sneak it following an even first 45 minutes to consider.
The two teams have shown enough in attack of late to suggest that they can both get on the scoresheet, an outcome BetVictor chalk up at 8/11.
And those seeking additional value bets where goals are concerned can opt for bet365’s identical 8/11 posted against the contest to producing three or more.
James Vaughan looks overpriced at 17/2 (bet365) to break the deadlock given he was his team’s last scorer, and Skybet rate the Town attacker at 11/4 to strike at any point.
