While their rivals sun themselves in the FA Cup fourth round, Queens Park Rangers and Norwich will be hoping to put some daylight between them and their rivals with wins on Saturday.
Crystal Palace host Norwich while Hull host QPR and Preston North End travel to Scunthorpe in desperate need of three points.
Hull City vs QPR
Hull are on their best run of the season having stretched their unbeaten run to four games, but despite their good form and their home advantage, they are as long as 2/1 to beat QPR.
It’s been 12 years since there was an away win in a league clash between these two sides, and Hull look the value in the betting, although QPR are five points clear at the top of the league for a reason and are available at 7/5 to win.
If Hull are to win, they will have to keep Adel Taarabt quiet after the midfielder netted his 13th goal of the season at Coventry last Sunday and the QPR hitman is 6/1 to get the first goal.
Crystal Palace vs Norwich City
Palace may be 22nd in the league table but they enjoy playing Norwich at home and have won three of their last four home games against the Canaries – the Eagles are 2/1 to beat Norwich.
Clean sheers come at a premium when these two meet and over at 1/1 looks the pick of the betting, while a 3-1 result in Palace’s favour has happened twice in the last three games and is a tempting 25/1.
Scunthorpe United vs Preston North End
The Championship’s bottom two sides are in desperate need of three points as they look to escape the relegation zone, and Phil Brown’s Preston side can spring a surprise at 19/10 to win.
The Lilywhites have produced two strong draws in their last two games and can continue their good form.
A £10 treble on QPR, Palace and Preston winning would return £208.80. New customers can sign up here for a free bet worth £25.
