Norwich continue to go strong at the top of the Championship, now with a four-match winning streak behind them. Will they be able to keep up their strong momentum for an automatic promotion place at home against Hull in midweek? Read our Norwich v Hull betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 12th, 2019 at 3:35 p.m.)
The Canaries are on a four-match winning streak. They posted a 1-0 home success over Swansea on the weekend. That actually leaves them with six wins in their last seven league games. It was also their third straight win at Carrow Road in the Championship. Norwich hold a W12 D2 L4 home record this season and they have averaged 2.1 goals per home game for the season. The Canaries are unbeaten in five at home in the division (W4 D1).
They have earned a clean sheet in a third of their home fixtures played this season and 67% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Eight of the home wins that Norwich have recorded have been by a one-goal margin. They are currently on a twelve match scoring streak of form at home. Home and away they have scored in each of their last seventeen. Norwich have scored 71% of their home goals this season in the second half of fixtures.
Hull held out for a 0-0 draw at home against Norwich in November
The Tigers are undefeated in three against Norwich (W1 D2)
Norwich have won one of their last five at home against Hull (D3 L1)
Seven of the last eight meetings have gone under 2.5 goals
The Tigers suffered a 3-0 away defeat at Nottingham Forest on the weekend. That snapped a two-match winning streak that they were on. The Tigers are currently at W3 D1 L4 in their last eight league games home and away, so they have been up and down. They have won just the five away games all season (D4 L9) and three of those wins were against sides currently sitting in the bottom seven of the league. Hull are on a four-match losing streak away from home.
The Tigers are winless in five on the road, taking the one point in math sequence. They have averaged just a shade over a goal per away game this season, but 61% of their road games have gone over 2.5 goals. That is because they have conceded at 1.94 goals per away game on average. They have just the two clean sheets behind them on their travels. Hull have conceded at least two goals in each of their last five away games. Six of the nine away losses that Hull have taken this season have been by a margin of two goals or more.
Norwich have such strong home form going, while the Tigers have been struggling on the road recently. It should make for a routine home success for Norwich in the game. The Canaries to get the win with the clean sheet fits too.

Hull have struggled for wins recently even though they are sat around the Championship mid-table zone. They will be looking for points at home against a Milwall side who are still nervously close to the relegation zone. Read our Hull v Millwall betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 24th, 2019 at 8:09 p.m.)
Hull suffered a big 5-1 loss out at Brentford on the weekend. That leaves them having collected only the one point in their last three played in the Championship. Their home form isn’t that bad really this term as they have put up figures of W7 D4 L5. They are on a good streak of unbeaten home form actually. Hull are undefeated in their last six on home soil, having scored at least two goals in each of their last six. They were on a five-match winning streak at home before a 2-2 draw last time out there against Rotherham.
Hull have taken a clean sheet in 44% of their home games this season, while 38% of them have gone under 2.5 goals. Their defence has been solid because they have averaged under a goal per game on home soil. Both teams have scored in just 38% of Hull’s home games. Hull have scored 60% of their home goals in the second period of fixtures, while they have conceded 73% of their home goals in the second period too.
Millwall are W1 D1 this season against Hull (championship and FA Cup)
The Lions are undefeated in their last four against Hull in all competition (W3 D1)
Hull are W2 L2 in their last four league home games against Millwall
Four of the last six meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
The Lions also suffered a loss on the weekend, going down 3-1 at home against Preston. Millwall have one win in their last seven league games (D3 L3) only. Their away form isn’t much to write home about. It stands at W2 D4 L10. They did take a great win in their last road game though, taking down play-off contenders Derby at Pride Park. They are W2 D1 L1 in their last four away games, so they have shown some signs of improvement there.
Millwall have only come up with 15 goals in their 16 away games though, which has been a bit of a downfall for them. Just 38% of their away games have made it over the 2.5 goals line. Millwall have a clean sheet in 12% of road fixtures. The Lions have been losing at the half time break in half of their road games. Millwall have scored 80% of their away goals in the second period of matches. They have only opened the scoring in three road games this season. Just three sides have worse away records than they do.
There should be enough here for Hull to get a positive result on the board. We also fancy the game to end up under 2.5 goals following a trend of results in Millwall’s recent games. Home win.

Leeds have continued their hot hand of form to stay top of the Championship table after beating Blackburn on Boxing Day at Elland Road. They stay at home on the weekend as they welcome Hull. The Tigers have put together some really nice form lately to ease any relegation worries. Read our Leeds v Hull betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 27th, 2018 at 3:29 p.m.)

33% of their away games have gone above 3.5 goals
The Tigers have been leading at half time in five of their twelve away games
Hull have scored at least two goals in each of their last five league fixtures
The Tigers do only have the one clean sheet on their travels this season though
They have conceded in each of their last four goals
Leeds should get a challenge here because Hull are scoring well and have some positive form about them. But Leeds showed great character on Boxing Day and we are predicting the home win & both teams to score.

It had been a difficult season for Hull in the Championship but since the end of October, they have turned their fortunes around. A win last weekend over Brentford strengthened their survival fight. Swansea start the weekend up in the top ten and need to keep picking up points to stay in touch with the top six. Read our Hull v Swansea betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 18th, 2018 at 3:55 p.m.)
Hull have moved on to a very good W4 D3 L1 record over their last eight Championship fixtures. Last weekend they got a very good solid home 2-0 win over Brentford. That took them out to a W3 D3 L5 record this season on home soil in league action. Two of the three wins in that form were only against sides currently lumped in the bottom six of the Championship. Hull have only managed the nine home goals this season and they have conceded a total of eleven at the KCom this term. Only 18% of all league games at Hull this season have gone above 2.5 goals
The Tigers have earned a clean sheet in 36% of their home games which isn’t too bad. Of their eleven home games in the second tier their, six of them have been level at the halftime break. Hull have not been beaten in any of their last four games home and away in the Championship (W2 D2). They produced at least two goals in each of their last three league outings. Of the goals which they have conceded at home this season, 73% of them have been in the second period of matches. Each of their last eight home fixtures have ended under 2.5 goals. Just three sides have taken were some points in the Championship than Hull have managed this season.
Hull have won their last three home games against Swansea
They beat them twice at home in 2017 (League & FA Cup)
The Tigers are no a four-match winnings streak against Swansea
The Swansea have failed to score in five of their last seven against the Tigers
Swansea landed a 2-1 home win over Sheffield Wednesday last weekend which left them with back to back wins in the Championship. Before that, they had lost three in a row. Their away form this season is W4 D3 L4 and are W2 L2 in their last four on the road. In their away games the Swans have tallied 10 and have conceded 10 this season. Less than half of their away fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals so the indicators are that this will be a low scoring game between them. Swansea have earned a clean sheet in 36% of their away games
The Welsh club have been level at halftime in six of their eleven road games, so another strong option appears to be the halftime draw. All six of Swansea’s half time away draws were 0-0 scorelines. Despite that, they haven’t drawn any of their last eleven games in the top flight.
They are on a nine-match scoring streak in the Championship. Swansea have not managed to pick up a clean sheet in any of their last five games and actually, they are on a run of five games which have finished over 2.5 goals. They have scored first in just three of their away games this season.
Given that the Tigers have a good home record against the Welsh club in recent times they look a good proposition to win this. They have good momentum going as well and even though the Swans have upped their game, it’s a home win for us.
19th December 2018 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
Hull will have a tough home game on their hands in this one and they could really use three points to give themselves a boost up the table. Leeds have found the wins hard to come by recently after their strong start but they are holding onto second place in the table heading into midweek action. Read our Hull v Leeds betting tips for more.
Leeds even money
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 29th, 2018 at 11.35 p.m.)
Hull have posted a poor W2 D2 L6 record this season in the Championship and they have taken just the one point from their last three played. That point though was a very good one at home against the strong Middlesbrough side, who are currently sat in third place in the Championship, level on points with Leeds. Hull have gone W1 D1 L3 at home so are totally unreliable there, their only home win coming against Ipswich, one of the three teams beneath them in the table at the moment. Both teams to score for Hull v Leeds betting tips is at 8/11 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 7:50 pm).
That may well be worth a flutter for this one. The Tigers have only claimed the one clean sheet all season but they have scored in three of their four home league fixtures. The Tigers haven’t been terrible in front of goal, but at the back have the third worst defensive record currently. So we can look over 2.5 goals at 17/20 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 7:50 pm) for Hull v Leeds betting tips. Four of Hull’s last seven games have gone over the goal line and given the quick turnaround in matches, it should be value.
When will Leeds get their winning momentum back? It has been a great season for them with just one defeat suffered. They claimed a point in Yorkshire derby out at Sheffield Wednesday on the weekend, but they have claimed only one win in their last five games (D3 L1). So it hasn’t quite clicked after they had won four of their opening five games of the term. Their away record reads W2 D3 L0 for the season so they are not likely to slip to a defeat in this one. A Leeds 2-1 correct score appeals greatly at 15/2 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 7:50 pm).
The visitors are the ones with all of the firepower and Kemar Roofe is up as the 8/5 anytime goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 7:50 pm). He has been struggling with injury lately though. Leeds have hit the back of the net in each of their five road games this term and they have averaged just over two goals per road game. 62% of the goals that Leeds have scored this season have happened in the first half of matches. So the conclusion from that could be a good Leeds/Leeds half-time/full-time option on the match which is at 5/2 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 7:50 pm).
Three of the last four meetings between the two clubs at Hull have ended in a draw. There wasn’t much between them in last season’s Championship either with a 0-0 draw in this corresponding fixture and a 1-0 home success for Leeds. In the last six Championship meetings, things are even with two wins each and two draws. The difference is that Hull are undefeated in their last five on home soil against Leeds (W1 D4).
There have been a stack of draws in the recent head to head from this corresponding fixture. Hull ground out a great point at home against Middlesbrough over the weekend, but that was thanks to a penalty. We are going to back Leeds to sneak a narrow win by a one-goal margin.
30th September 2018 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
Hull were scrabbling around the bottom third of the table for most of last season’s Championship campaign and will be looking for some kind of improvement from somewhere. They get a start in a tough one fixture against Aston Villa who failed in last season’s play offs. The Villains have been backed heavily for promotion as they have had some heavy investment from backers over the summer. Read our Hull v Aston Villa predictions for more.
Aston Villa 15/8
* (Betting Odds were taken from August 1st, 2018 at 8:17 p.m.)
So the Tigers didn’t have a fun time of things in the Championship last season as they finished down in 18th position. They were comfortably enough above the drop zone despite winning just two of their final nine games of the term. Their home form read W7 D8 L8 last season. Transfer business has been slow from them over the summer and so the degree of improvement from last term is negligible. They are going to of course, come out with some fresh legs and enthusiasms and were are looking under 2.5 goals at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 1st, 2018 at 8:17 p.m.). 61% of Hull’s home games last season in the division ended under the goal line and the most frequent scoreline at the KCom was a 0-0 draw. Hull weren’t short of goals last season and they were actually the top scoring team of the bottom half of the table finishers. Their defence was just a total shambles through which let the whole thing down.
So with a bit of fresh backing coming into the club after their costly failure to earn promotion to the Premier League through the play offs, things look brighter again for Aston Villa who are 12/1 odds to win the Championship outright this term* (Betting Odds were taken from August 1st, 2018 at 8:17 p.m.). Steve Bruce is staying on as boss and while they are expecting the impending departure of Jack Grealish. Villa have picked up young Portugal keeper Andre Moreira on a loan deal, that’s the height of their transfer business over the summer. However, they did have one of the strongest squads last term of course. They did win four of their five pre-season friendlies in the month of July and while there is plenty of experience in their squad, it’s not a particularly young one. We are going to back both teams not to score at even money odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 1st, 2018 at 8:17 p.m.) as Villa collected a clean sheet in 43% of their away games last season but aren’t particularly prolific in front of goal.
Both league meetings last season ended in a draw and three of the last six have ended in parity. Hull are unbeaten in their last three home games against the Villains (W1 D2) so they do have that on their side. Both teams have scored in just three of the last thirteen meetings between Villa and Hull across all competitions.
We are just going to back the draw in this one. It’s early season so it’s not entirely clear how either side are going to be lining up. Neither club have made drastic changes to their respective squads over the summer and on the back of the draw matches last season, we are sticking with that trend for our Hull v Aston Villa betting tip.
1st August 2018 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
League leaders Wolves will look to edge their way a little closer to the title by picking up three points at home on Tuesday night. It’s just a matter of getting to the finish line now. They will be playing in the Premier League next season, will it be as Championship champions? Hull are still down in the bottom third of the table but should be safe from the drop.
Wolves 1/2, Draw 10/3, Hull 6/1* (Betting Odds taken at 8:01 p.m. on March 30th, 2018)
What a three points Wolves earned for themselves on Friday. They had a tough game ahead of them out at Middlesbrough but found themselves 2-0 up in the game, but then in a twenty-minute spell of madness, they had two players sent off. They conceded a goal late on in the game but managed to hold out for maximum points. That moved them onto a three-match winning streak in the league and they will be hoping for a slightly easier time of things back on home soil on Tuesday. Wolves have won their last two fixtures at Molineux and have stayed unbeaten in their last five there (W4 D1). The league leaders have been a powerful force on home soil all season long having collected a W14 D3 L2 record so far. There’s a good chance that they will extend there. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last five home fixtures and in the Betfair correct score market a Wolves 2-0 looks good solid option at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:44 p.m. on March 20th, 2018). Wolves have been leading at half time in twelve of their home games this season and Wolves/Wolves half-time/ full-time option is a decent proposition as well. Three more wins, the title is theirs.
Hull picked up another good survival point on Saturday as they held Aston Villa to a draw. That leaves them with a nice six-point cushion between themselves and the drop zone at this stage of the season. It could be worse basically of course. The Tigers have posted a W2 D2 L2 record in their last six league games and they had a bit of a stinker last time out on the road as they were beaten 3-0 at Birmingham. Hull have only collected the three wins on the road this season in the Championship, losing eleven of their seventeen games. Two of those wins have been in their last four road games though. Their effort against Villa was good but that was at home where they are carrying good form and now having to go to the league leaders probably isn’t going to offer up too much for them. Realistically a Wolves to win to nil wager with bet365 is going to have a nice bit of appeal for the fixture. The Tigers have produced less than a goal per game on their travels this season in the Championship and they have conceded at an average of 1.6 per game on the road. Each of their last three road games have gone over 2.5 goals and if that happens in his one, it will probably be because of the home side.
Wolves were 3-2 winners over Hull earlier in this season and this game could be as equally entertaining. From the last five Championship meetings, things are even with two wins each and a draw. Wolves are unbeaten in their last three on home soil against the Tigers in the Championship with a W1 D2 record in hat sequence. Four of the last six meetings have made it over 2.5 goals.
Wolves should have too much strength at Molineux for the visitors, but that’s not to say Hull won’t challenge. But they may just struggle to get themselves on the scoresheet and Wolves can see them off with a clean sheet.
31st March 2018 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
Hull start the weekend six points clear of the drop zone, so still, need to do a little more work to get safe down the run in. This is a tough one game for them as they face up to Aston Villa who are looking well set to lock in play off place. But the Villains did fall out of form before the international break, losing back to back games.
Aston Villa 13/8, Hull 17/10, Draw 11/5* (Betting Odds taken at 07:01 p.m. on March 26th, 2018)
Hull suffered a disappointing loss against the struggling Birmingham just before the international break. That was a setback because if Hull would have won it, they would be sitting a lot easier. It snapped a two-match league winning streak that they were on though and they haven’t done too badly at home recently. They are W2 D1 L1 in their last four at home which suggests that they could make life difficult for the Villains on the weekend. In their last home game, they edged Norwich 4-3 in a thriller. Each of Hull’s last four games have seen at least three goals so over 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 7/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 07:01 p.m. on March 26th, 2018). The Tigers have scored in each of their last four games at home but have conceded in their last three. They have scored really well on home soil at just under an average of two per game. 58% of their home games have made it over 3.5 goals actually and that’s because their defence has been leaky on top of everything.
Both teams to score at bet365 is 5/6 odds option* (Betting Odds taken at 07:01 p.m. on March 26th, 2018) for the game which looks reasonable. Villa slipped to back to back defeats against QPR and Bolton before the break, really halting a good run of form that they were on. They were on a three-match winning streak before that with goals flying in all over the place. They have won five of their last seven road games (L2) so that is still some pretty positive form. Overall this season on the road the Villains are W9 D3 L7. They have not drawn any of their last nine on the road now interestingly, but they have been level at the break in nine of their road games this season. They have averaged 1.3 goals per away games while they have conceded an average of a goal per game. A top two finish looks to have passed them by, so it’s just about consolidating a top six finish from now to the end of the season for them.
There was a 1-1 tie played out between these two earlier this season which was their first meeting since the 2014/15 Premier League season when the two of them traded home wins. In the last five meetings Villa are W2 D2 L1 up now it have taken only the one point away from their last two visits to the KCom. Both teams have scored in just three of the last ten meetings.
The Tigers have been digging out points at home and therefore a draw may be a nice option for this one. Aston Villa will hope to be recharged after the break, but they could just find the Tigers in a bullish mood and have to settle for a point.
28th March 2018 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
The Tigers pulled off a surprise home victory over Sheffield United on Friday night and that was a massive three points for them as well as they are trying to fight off the threat of relegation. Now there is a good chance for them to build on that success as they take on Barnsley who have big relegation issues of their own.
Hull even money, Draw 12/5, Barnsley 14/5* (Betting Odds taken at 08:04 p.m. on February 25th, 2018)
With two wins in their last three games, Hull are fighting hard against relegation. They are two points clear of the drop zone heading into this midweek game, which is a game in hand over three of the four teams beneath them. One of those are Barnsley who are just a point back of them, one place above the drop zone. So there is an important three points up for grabs in this one. Hull’s form at the KCom is pretty solid with them being unbeaten in six there (W2 D4) and on Friday night they recorded a 1-0 victory there over Sheffield United. It leaves them with a clean sheet in four of their last five and Hull to win to nil at William Hill is at 21/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 08:04 p.m. on February 25th, 2018). It has been a marked defensive improvement for them lately as well which is giving them hope of staying up. Overall their home form for the season is just W5 D6 L5 and they have conceded an average of 1.5 goals per game on home soil. They have scored around two goals per game on average though and with their current form going so well, they look likely to avoid defeat in the fixture. This will probably be tight though and under 2.5 goals at William Hill looks a good option at 21/20* (Betting Odds taken at 8:04 p.m. on February 25th, 2018).
Barnsley are in trouble but they gave themselves a huge boost on the weekend with a 2-0 away win out at Birmingham, which saw them push the Blues into the drop zone beneath them. That win over the Blues snapped a six-match winless streak of form that they were on in the Championship though and it snapped back to back defeats away from home they were on as well. Overall the Tykes have won just four times away from home this season (D4 L8) and they have been leading at half time in just one road game. They have scored an average of just 1.1 goals per away game and home and away combined they have scored in each of their last three league outings. In the William Hill correct score market the 1-1 is the shortest-priced option at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 08:04 p.m. on February 25th, 2018). 71% of the goals that they have conceded away from home this season have been in the first half of matches but they have netted in 75% of their road games away from Oakwell. Like for Hull, this is a game in hand that Barnsley have over the three sides in the relegation zone and the avoidance of defeat has to b the main priority of the day in this one.
Hull managed to go and get themselves a victory on their visit to Barnsley earlier in the seasons. Things are even over the last four meetings between the two clubs with two wins each. All of the wins in that run of games between the two were with a clean sheet as well for the victors with three of the results being 1-0 scorelines. Hull actually have some nice home form going over Barnsley having won their last four on the bounce against them in the league at the KC.
Barnsley haven’t quite been at the races lately and therefore this is a great chance for Hull to bank another important three points. Their win over the Blades will have done them the world of good and back them to win this by a 1-0 margin too.
26th February 2018 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
The Tigers couldn’t get anything out of their midweek action as they suffered a heavy defeat out at Middlesbrough which leaves them in considerable peril near the drop zone. Sheffield United though had a much better time of things picking up a win which edged them a little bit closer back to the play off places.
Hull 6/4, Sheffield United 13/8, Draw 11/5* (Betting Odds taken at 1:47 a.m. on February 20th, 2018)
The Tigers have won just one of their last eleven league games now and that was an away success recently out at Nottingham Forest. They have actually drawn each of their last four home games and are unbeaten in their last five at the KC so they have that going for them at least. In the William Hill correct score market for this Friday night feature a 1-1 draw is at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 5:06 p.m. on February 21st, 2018). Overall this season Hull are W4 D6 L5 on home soil in the league. They are sitting just one place outside of the relegation zone going into the weekend, outside of the bottom three on goal difference only. Every point counts at this stage. All but one of the home defeats they have suffered this season have been by a one-goal margin only and the Tigers have scored really well at an average of two per game at the KC. They have shipped a considerable amount too though and 67% of their home games have gone over 3.5 goals so expect plenty of action.
It is back to back wins in the league now for Sheffield United which will leave them feeling much better about themselves. 2-1 victories over Leeds and QPR have put them back in contention for a play off place. Can they go and follow it up with a win out at the struggling Hull? The Blades are W1 D2 L3 in their last six road games so haven’t been great on their travels at all and they haven’t managed a clean sheet in any of their last seven on the road now. So both teams to score at William Hill is going to offer plenty of appeal for this one and the Blades have only managed the one clean sheet all season on their travels in the second tier. Sheffield United have scored the opening goal in seven of their fifteen away games this season so have been fairly strong starters to games and 63% of all their away goals have been in the first half of matches. This is a kind fixture for them at the moment to go out and get further momentum behind them and they are W3 D2 L2 in their last seven so are back in the picture after their slump. Clayton Donaldson is their top scorer on the road this season and is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option at William Hill* (Betting Odds taken at 5:06 p.m. on February 21st, 2018).
The Blades romped to a 4-1 home win over Hull earlier this season and that was the third game in a row between the two of them that have produced at least five goals. The Blades have only lost two of their last nine visits to Hull in all competitions. In the last eight meetings between the two things are even with three wins each and two draws.
Hull have been having problems this season on home soil in the league and it is hard to see where they are going to come up with the goals from to take a win in this one. Back the away side to swoop in and grab three points.
