The Tigers are set for a mid-table finish but they aren’t carrying much form with them at the end of the season. This game is all about Bristol City’s outside chance of making the top six to reach the playoffs. In order to that, they have to win and hope that Derby lose and Middlesbrough do nothing more than draw. Read our Hull v Bristol City betting tips for more.
Bristol City 11/8
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 3rd, 2019 at 4:54 p.m.)
Hull have taken the one point from their last four league games. During that sequence of games, they have conceded eight goals. The home record of Hull this season reads W11 D5 L6 so it hasn’t been bad from them at all. A look at who those wins have come against though tells a clear story. They have gone W8 D2 at home against sides currently 15th or lower in the table. That’s just three of their home wins against top half of the table sides. Hull suffered a loss in their last home game at 3-0 reverse against Sheffield United.
That though is the only defeat that the Tigers have suffered in their last thirteen league home fixtures. In total they have taken a clean sheet in 36% of home games, having scored at an average of 1.6 goals per home game. Of their eleven home wins, seven of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. They have gone without a clean sheet in any of their last four home games, all four of those fixtures going over 2.5 goals. The Tigers have been leading at the halftime break in 10 of their home games. They have scored nearly 60% of their home goals in the second period of fixtures though.
Bristol City claimed a 1-0 home win over Hull earlier this season
The Robins are unbeaten in their last three league games against Hull
Four of the last five meetings in all companies have gone over 2.5 goals
Hull have lost just one of their six previous Championship home games against the Robins
Bristol City picked up a 2-1 win at Millwall in midweek to keep their outside chances of finishing the top six alive. That shook them out of a slump in form too as they had taken just one point from their previous four league matches. The away record of Bristol City is at W11 D4 L7 this season and had lost two in a row before that success at Millwall in midweek. Overall this season Bristol City have actually taken a clean sheet in 41% of their away games. Only 41% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals this season.
Of the away wins that the Robins have taken this season, nine of the eleven have been by a one-goal margin only. That’s all they need in this one, plus other results to go their way. Bristol City though haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last seven games, home and away. The Robins have been sat level at the break in 12 of their 22 road games and they have scored 67% of their road goals in the second period of fixtures. All in all, there are only two teams in the league this season who have produced more points away from home than the Robins have done. How badly they need three more.
Hull don’t actually have bad home form, but the Robins have to turn up in a positive frame of mind knowing that it’s win or bust. Even if it’s a win their playoff dreams could be shattered. So basically they have nothing to fear over losing, they just have to go for it. Away win.

This is a big clash for Monday’s action in the Championship. Sheffield United are still on the push for automatic promotion and need to keep their good away from going. Hull though have been going well on home soil recently and could give the Blades a good run for their money. Read our Hull v Sheffield United betting tips for more.
Sheffield United 11/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 16th, 2019 at 10:19 p.m.)
Hull do have some good home form behind them. They are currently on a twelve undefeated streak at home in the league. They have won four of their last five there (D1) and it is that home form which has moved them up to within touching distance of the playoff spots. Their away form has let them down though else they could have been much better off.
The Tigers have scored in each of their last eleven home games now, not earning a clean sheet in any of their last three. They have averaged 1.7 goals per home fixture this season, while they have conceded at under a goal per game on average. In total the Tigers have earned a clean sheet in 38% of home games. As they have scored at least two goals in each of their last eleven home games, they will be a threat.
Sheffield United earned a 1-0 home win over Hull in October
Hull won this corresponding fixture last season 1-0
Hull have lost one of their last five home games against the Blades in all competitions
Four of the last six league meetings have gone under 2.5 goals
The Blades are no pushovers on the road though. They are currently holding a seven-match undefeated streak of form on their travels, winning three in that sequence. Their overall away form for the season reads W13 D4 L4 and they averaged 1.5 goals per game on their travels. So it has been good from them and they are tough at the back as well.
Sheffield United have taken a clean sheet in four of their last five road games in the Championship now. Across the course of the season, they have taken a clean sheet in 38% of away games. Each of their last five away games have gone under 2.5 goals because of their powerful defence. The Blades have a good half time away record of W8 D11 L2. Can they drive for more points to stake a claim for second place?
The Tigers have been very impressive on home form, but then they are taking on the Blades who have impressed away from home. So this may all just end up a fairly even battle and the draw in the match outright at 11/5 doesn’t look a bad proposition at all* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 16th, 2019 at 10:19 p.m.).

The Baggies got an important win on the board last weekend to snap out of some losses. They look on course now for a top-four finish but this is no easy game for them. Hull are starting the weekend just the two points outside of the top six but can they get some away form going in this important clash at the Hawthorns? Read our West Brom v Hull betting tips for more.
West Brom 5/6
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 16th, 2019 at 4:58 p.m.)
The Baggies got a good 4-1 home win over Preston on the weekend to keep their hot streak going at the Hawthorns. That is a three-match winning streak that they are on there at the moment in the Championship. They have scored at least three goals in each of those wins as well. West Brom have a home record of W10 D7 L4 this season and they have averaged 2.3 goals per home fixture this term.
62% of all league games at the Hawthorns this season have made it over 2.5 goals, around half going over 3.5 goals. West Brom are on a four-match scoring streak at home, scoring at least two goals in each of their last eleven there. 67% of their home goals have come after the half time break. Home and away, The Baggies have managed only the two clean sheets in their last ten played. In total, they have taken a clean sheet in just 14% of home fixtures.
Hull took a 1-0 home win over the Baggies in November
The Tigers have won one of their last six against West Brom (D2 L3)
West Brom won their last home game against Hull 3-1 in 2017
Four of the last five meetings have gone under 2.5 goals
The Tigers were really trending towards the play-off places but had a setback last time out. They lost 1-0 at Middlesbrough, snapping a three-match winning streak that they were on. Hull are still within touch of the top six but really have to produce a win in this one to boost their chances. They have only gone W1 D1 L5 from their seven away games against current top seven sides this season though. Their overall record in the Championship is W6 D4 L11 this season.
They have lost six of their last seven away games (W1) so it really is their home form which has put them in playoff contention. Hull have actually taken one win in their last eight on the road. They have tallied a clean sheet in just 14% of away games, scoring an average of 1.2 goals per road fixture. 57% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Hull have scored 60% of their away goals in the first half of fixtures.
West Brom have good home form behind them and this could be the telling factor here. Hull haven’t been that hot on their travels, highlighted by their recent loss at Middlesbrough. West Brom can collect the victory.

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.)

Hull have scored at least two goals in each of their last five league fixtures

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.

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.

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.
