Bristol City vs Hull City Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

In a sentence: The home side desperately need a win to maintain their slender playoff hopes.

Last time: Hull City won 2-1 in a League Cup tie in 2016. The last league meeting at Ashton Gate ended in a 1-1 draw. Football predictions are tough, but a home win looks more likely this time.

This time: Bristol City are 6/5 to win, with Hull at 11/5 and the draw 13/5.

You might remember: The Robins’ last home win against the Tigers, in 2011. Their goals came from Jon Stead, Brett Pitman and Jamal Campbell-Ryce.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Do Bristol tyty have what it takes to bounce back this weekend?

This is a Championship preview where the result is not straight forward to select. Football prediction can be aided by looking at the form guide, but both sides have won two of their last six league games and lost their last match, so there has been little difference between them recently. Here are some football betting tips for the weekend, which might help you decide where to place your bets.

Bristol City are 6/5 to win, and as they have won three of their last four at Ashton Gate, this is perhaps the likely outcome. Only six teams have won more home games or scored more goals in front of their own fans in the Championship this season.

Hull City are available at 11/5. Although they have only won four away matches this season, three of them have come in their last six games on the road. They have been the Championship’s fourth-best away side over the past six matches and so will provide the Robins with a stern test.

The draw is priced at 13/5. These sides have each been held 14 times in 2017/18, and only three sides in the division have tied more matches. With the teams in similar form too, a stalemate is a definite possibility.

Bobby Reid is 9/2 to open the scoring, and given Matej Vydra is the only Championship player with more opening goals this season, this is definitely a bet worth considering. Reid has 18 league goals in total and can be backed at 13/8 to score at any time.

Fraizer Campbell may have only scored five league goals in 2017/18, but every single one has been an opener, which makes him very enticing from a betting perspective. The former Manchester United striker is 12/5 to score during the match or 13/2 to continue his run of always breaking the deadlock when he scores.

Championship predictions are rarely straightforward, and this one is no different. In a game which looks tight, logic suggests to go with the home team, and Bristol City should have enough to take the points.

Predicted Score: Bristol City 2 - 1 Hull City

Match Summary

1

Look out for:

Both sides finding the net. Bristol City have seen both teams score in 52% of their home games, while Hull have had it occur in the same proportion of their away matches. A ‘yes’ bet is priced at 5/7 and should be part of your both teams to score predictions.

2

We fancy:

Over 2.5 goals, at 6/7. Football predictions are aided by a little research, and Hull City lead the Championship when it comes to games featuring at least three goals. The Robins are just two matches behind, so expect to see several goals in this match.

3

It's a long shot, but...

Hull to win 2-0, at 18/1. Football score predictions are always difficult, but five of Hull’s six league wins in the last two months have seen them keep a clean sheet. Their decent away form makes a win a distinct possibility.
