We highlighted Sheffield United’s great record in Yorkshire derbies when they faced Leeds recently and are hoping the Blades can continue the trend at Hull on Friday night.
Our preview of the clash with Leeds featured three successful tips, including a 2-1 correct score prediction at 29/4.
That triumph made it five wins and a draw from six Championship matches against other teams from the white rose county, with a 4-1 defeat of the Tigers at Bramall Lane among the victories.
A Look At Hull City’s Betting Odds
Tuesday’s 3-1 loss at Middlesbrough left Hull deep in relegation trouble, with only one win secured from their last 11 league matches.
Nigel Adkins’ side enjoyed plenty of possession at the Riverside, but they were undone by a series of sloppy defensive errors.
“The goals we gave away were dreadful and if you’re defending like that, you’re never going to win anything,” moaned the manager.
“I thought we had eradicated that, but it’s individuals making basic errors and you can’t afford to do that.”
Looking at the Hull vs Sheff Utd odds, 18/5 for an away win and over 2.5 goals in the game stands out.
A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds
Sheffield United remained in the hunt for a place in the play-offs when beating QPR 2-1 at home in midweek.
Richard Stearman and John Lundstram put the Blades in control as they dominated the game, until Luke Freeman scored to set up a nervy finish.
“I thought we played well,” commented Chris Wilder, who singled out striker Leon Clarke for praise.
He added: “I thought Leon was the outstanding player for us, even though he’d loved to have scored.
“Whether he linked it up or ran down the side, I thought he was great and it was a fantastic performance from him.”
Clarke will have fond memories of facing Hull, having bagged four of this season’s 15 Championship goals in the emphatic home win over City back in early November.
It may be closer at KCOM Stadium, but we’re sticking with the Blades to oblige 2-1 at 19/2 in our Hull vs Sheff Utd betting tips.
