Away Sheffield Wednesday

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Hull to have too much firepower for Wednesday. After scoring nine goals in their last two games, they seem to be firing on all cylinders. And with the likes of Abel Hernandez and Kamil Grosicki looking to carry some sharpness into the World Cup, this game could be a bad one for the away side.  A 2-0 win for the hosts has odds of 8/1. 

2 We fancy:

A score/win double of Hernandez and Hull, which at 2/1 is a great option for any free football betting tips. Hernandez can be found at 13/2 to score two or more goals. The Uruguayan to find the back of the net is one of the best football score predictions for this match. 

3 It's a long shot, but…

David Meyler to score the opener is 16/1 and. The Irishman scored a penalty in Hull’s 5-0 thrashing of Burton midweek.

Hull City vs Sheffield Wednesday Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Wednesday take revenge for their defeat to Hull in the Championship playoff final two years ago?

Hull Cityare on a good run of form, having won their last two games by a combined scoreline of 9-0, hitting four past QPR and five past Burton midweek. Their prowess in front of goal is something to bear in mind when making any football predictions for today. 

Sheffield Wednesday have lost their last two games 1-0 at home to Fulham and 4-2 at QPR, which ended a decent run of winning three in a row prior to that. The Owls have the better of the head-to-head though, winning 20 times to Hull’s 12, and there have been 19 stalemates between the sides. In their recent meetings, however, the Tigers are unbeaten in their last four games with Wednesday, drawing three of them. It’s something to think about when giving any football betting tips for this clash. 

Hull are 5/6, are unbeaten in their last four league games and have lost just twice in their last 13 games at home in the league this season. They are 6/1 to win this game 1-0. A Hull win is a good shout for anyone making any Sky Bet Championship predictions for this match. 

Wednesday are 7/2 to take the three points in this one, but their away form isn’t much to write about, having won just five times on their travels in the Championship this season. You can find odds of 11/1 for them to win the game 1-0. 

The draw is backed at 5/2 and there have been three draws in the last four meetings between the sides, including the 2-2 earlier in the season at Hillsborough. Another 2-2 draw here has odds of 16/1. 

Uruguayan striker Abel Hernandez has scored seven goals in his last seven games since returning from injury and was rested in the rout of Burton, so he should be fresh for this one. He is 4/1 to open the scoring in this game and is a good shout for any football score predictions. 

Wednesday’s Fernando Forestieri is 8/1 to score the first goal of the game, having broken the deadlock in the defeat to QPR on his first start since August. The Argentine is an interesting option for anyone making any football predictions for this game.  

Predicted Score: Hull City 2 - 0 Sheffield Wednesday
