Hull City vs Millwall Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions
In a sentence: Hull City’s bid to stay away from the Championship relegation zone will continue when they welcome Millwall to the KCOM Stadium on Tuesday night.
Last time: The two teams played out a goalless draw when they met in London for the reverse match back in November.
This time: Hull are 6/4 to collect all three points with Millwall at 56/25 and the draw available at 12/5.
You might remember: Millwall recorded a 1-0 win against Hull when they visited the Tigers during the 2010-11 Championship campaign. It was their first away success over the Yorkshire club since a Division Two clash in 1988.
Hull City's Last Six:
Won: 2 Drawn: 1 Lost: 3
Will Keane and Kamil Grosicki could both return to the Hull lineup after starting the 1-1 draw at home to Barnsley last week on the bench.
Jon Toral and Sebastian Larsson should both keep their positions in the team, however, as head coach Nigel Adkins looks to secure what would be a big three points.
Millwall's Last Six:
Won: 3 Drawn: 2 Lost: 1
Tim Cahill again came off the bench in Millwall’s 1-1 draw at home to Sunderland on Saturday afternoon, and the Australian is expected to stay among the substitutes.
Ryan Tunnicliffe and Jason Shackell are options as head coach Neil Harris considers shuffling his pack, but Steve Morison will again feature at centre-forward.
Hull will be looking to make it four Championship matches unbeaten against Millwall when they welcome Neil Harris’ side to the KCOM Stadium on Tuesday night. The two teams played out a goalless draw in the reverse fixture earlier this season, but Hull won 4-1 when the pair last clashed in Yorkshire during the 2012-13 Championship campaign.
The Tigers have actually only lost one of their last five Championship clashes with Millwall, but the visitors will enter the match nine positions and 16 points better off than the struggling home team.
Hull are 6/4 to collect all three points as the Tigers go in search of just their sixth home Championship win of the season. Nigel Adkins’ side have only won seven Championship fixtures during the 2017-18 campaign, with that disappointing run of form leaving them down in 20th position in the table, just three points clear of the relegation zone. That said, Hull have only lost one of their last four Championship matches, and have not been beaten at home in the league since the end of November.
Millwall are 56/25 to triumph at the KCOM on Tuesday night. The capital club were held by Sunderland on Saturday afternoon, but a strong campaign has left Harris’ side in 11th position in the table. Incredibly, Millwall have won each of their last four away Championship fixtures, keeping a clean sheet in each of their last three. It seems unlikely that the Lions will be able to make a late push for the play-offs, but another win here would leave the team’s supporters dreaming of the Premier League.
The draw is 12/5, and it is certainly worth nothing that Hull have drawn five of their last six Championship matches on home soil, including a 1-1 against Barnsley last time out. The pair also played out a goalless draw in the reverse match earlier this season, and it does seem a good price when considering all of the factors. That said, Hull will certainly be the fresher of the two teams after not playing at the weekend.
Jarrod Bowen is 13/2 in the first goalscorer market this weekend, while the Hull forward can be backed at 29/10 to register at any point during the 90 minutes of football. Bowen has managed 12 goals in 32 Championship fixtures for the Tigers this season, and will fancy his chances of causing Millwall’s back four problems.
Lee Gregory is 6/1 to break the deadlock, while the striker can be backed at 27/11 to get his name on the scoresheet during the 90 minutes. The 29-year-old has eight Championship goals for Millwall during the 2017-18 campaign, and will again be looking to feed off Steve Morison in the final third of the field.
Predicted Score: Hull City 1 - 1 Millwall
Look out for:
The match result and both teams to score market, which has some good value. Hull can be backed at 4/1 under these circumstances, with Millwall at 6/1 and the draw available at 19/5.
Correct score of 1-1, which is available at 11/2. Hull have been the draw specialists on home soil in recent weeks, while Millwall were held by Sunderland last time out. We fancy the points to be shared in a 1-1 draw here.
It’s a long shot, but:
Millwall won 2-0 at Reading in the Championship last month, and it is 16/1 that the Lions record the same result at the KCOM Stadium on Tuesday night.
