Home Ipswich Town

13/03/2018 Kick Off:  7:45 pm Portman Road V Predicted Score:2 - 1

Away Hull City

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Free-kicks. Ipswich have been highly productive from direct free-kicks this season, while Hull have a tendency to commit fouls in dangerous areas. Set piece-taker Waghorn is 13/2 to score first.

2 We fancy:

Ipswich to win and both teams to score at 5/1. The Blues are on good form at the moment but the revitalised Hernandez will cause a real threat.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Jarrod Bowen to score two or more at 16/1. The star winger has been the subject of a number of football bet tips and predictions this year, having scored 12 goals.

Ipswich Town's Last Six:

Won: 2 Drawn: 3 Lost: 1

Boss McCarthy is dealing with a host of injury problems, with Emyr Huws, Andre Dozzell, Teddy Bishop, Dean Gerken and David McGoldrick all unlikely to return this season. Tom Adeymi remains sidelined with a hamstring injury, whilst Mustapha Carayol is unlikely to feature due to a groin problem.

Domonic Iorfa and Joe Garner are also set to miss Hull’s visit, although the coach should at least be able to welcome back Jonas Knudsen.

Hull City's Last Six:

Won: 2 Drawn: 1 Lost: 3

Nigel Adkins was able to welcome back Abel Hernandez and Harry Wilson in Hull’s weekend fixture, with the striker having missed the first half of the season due to an Achilles tendon injury.

Stephen Kingsly is not yet fit to make the squad, despite having gained some game time with the under-23s.

Ipswich Town vs Hull City Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Ipswich Town welcome Hull City to Portman Road for this rearranged Sky Bet Championship fixture

This week’s Championship predictions see Ipswich as favourites going into their match against Hull. The Blues have lost just once in seven games, and could jump into the top half of the table with a win against the Tigers.

Ipswich are 19/10 to win, and despite struggling with an injury-hit squad, they are enjoying their best spell of form since August. The returning Knudsen will be a real boost for the Blues, having provided seven assists from left-back this season. They should have more than enough in the locker to overcome the visitors.

Hull are 17/10 and have been punished by their inconsistency rather than lack of quality this season. The Tigers’ last three wins have been over opponents well above them in the league, however, they have also failed to beat the likes of Barnsley at home. Football predictions are always hard with teams like Adkins’ and they should never be written off.

A draw is 5/2 and Ipswich would be unlikely to settle for just one point. For the Tigers however, a draw would be a good result, and Adkins’ side may set up to defend. This could make it a good shout in your football predictions for this midweek round of fixtures.

Martyn Waghorn is 11/4 to score against Hull on Tuesday, and has been keeping his side in the goals in Joe Garner’s absence. The attacking midfielder has directly contributed to 20 goals this season and will be a real threat to the fourth-worst defence in the league.

Abel Hernandez is 11/5 to score anytime and as football score predictions go, is a good bet. The forward has scored three times in two appearances since returning from injury, and is one of the best strikers in the league at his best.

Predicted Score: Ipswich Town 2 - 1 Hull City
