Match Summary

One to Watch: Billy Sharp

Billy Sharp scored his sixth and seventh Championship goals of the season in Sheffield United’s 2-0 win at Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday night.

The centre-forward has been in wonderful form for the Blades this term, and will fancy his chances of causing Hull City’s defence some problems in this game.

Sharp, who managed 13 Championship goals last season, has been key in Sheffield United’s strong start to the 2018-19 campaign.

The 32-year-old is at 5/1 in the first goalscorer market with bet365, which should certainly be considered as part of our best football betting tips.

Sheffield United vs Hull City Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Leon Clarke fire Sheffield United to a fourth straight victory?

Third-placed Sheffield United will welcome 21st-placed Hull City in the Championship on Saturday afternoon. The Blades have made a wonderful start to the 2018-19 campaign, with a total of 22 points from 11 matches leaving them in third position in the table. Hull, meanwhile, have collected just eight points from their 11 fixtures to sit down in 21st. Hull won the last Championship clash between the two teams back in February, but Sheffield United recorded a 4-1 victory when the pair locked horns in the corresponding match during the 2017-18 season.

Sheffield United are 3/5 as part of the best football betting tips for the weekend. The Blades, as mentioned above in this Championship preview, are currently third in the division, level on points with the leaders Leeds United. Chris Wilder’s side will enter the match off the back of a 2-0 success away to Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday night, which was their seventh league victory of the campaign. It is also worth considering as part of the Championship predictions market that Sheffield United are unbeaten in their last four league fixtures in front of their own fans.

Hull City are 19/4 to collect all three points this weekend. The Tigers have had a very difficult start to the season, with a total of eight points leaving them down in 21st spot. Nigel Adkins’ side have only won two of their 11 Championship matches, and will enter this fixture off the back of a 1-0 home defeat to Leeds United. Hull are actually winless in their last four Championship matches, meanwhile, and have lost each of their last three on the road, which is worth considering in this Championship preview.

The draw is available at 14/5, but it is worth considering as part of our football predictions that these two teams have only drawn three Championship matches between them this season. Meanwhile, the pair have not played out a draw since an FA Cup match in February 2009. Indeed, there has been a winner in each of their last seven matches in all competitions.

Predicted Score: Sheffield United 2 - 0 Hull City
