Away Sheffield United

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Sheffield United or draw and over 2.5 goals at 12/5 looks a good bet. Goals look to be on the cards and Sheffield will be confident of at least a point.

2 We fancy:

Sheffield United to win, BTTS at 9/2 is our pick. United have not kept clean sheets recently but look to be too strong for Hull.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Sheffield United to win 2-1 at 10/1. This score line has occurred in three of United’s last five games. Could be worth a punt.

Hull City vs Sheffield United Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Leon Clarke got his 15th goal of the season on January 1 but hasn’t scored since

Sheffield United start the game as slight favourites at 7/4 and remain just two points off the play-off places. Hull lie above the relegation zone on goal difference alone and have won just one of their past eleven league games. At 19/10 they start as underdogs but at home they will be hoping for a change in fortunes as they seek to pull away from the bottom three.

The bookies have this down as a very tough game to call but United to win at 7/4 looks good value considering their respective positions in the league. Hull are far more capable than their season thus far has shown and it would not be a huge upset if they were to pick up a win.

Four of the last five Sheffield matches have seen over 2.5 goals, including three BTTS – Yes results also. United have won three of those five games by a 2-1 scoreline, which you can find at long odds of 10/1 to happen again here. 2 of Hull’s last 3 have also seen BTTS – Yes and at odds of 11/13, this could be the way to go.

Sheffield United to win and both teams to score at 9/2 is another bet that looks good value. Three of their last five results in the league have had this outcome and given Hull’s poor defensive record, this looks the best way to go here.

Another bet that stands out is the double chance and over 2.5 goals market which 188bet provide. Sheffield United or draw and over 2.5 goals at 12/5 is great value considering Sheffield score plenty of goals and Hull concede a lot also. Sheffield should have enough quality to beat a low on confidence Hull side who are really struggling.

Predicted Score: Hull City 1 - 2 Sheffield United
