Hull vs Watford: Tigers to roar at home once more

Hull vs Watford: Tigers to roar at home once more

Kick Off: 1500, 22/04/2017

Stadium: KCOM Stadium

Hull will be hoping to continue their excellent home form when they host Watford, with the Tigers having picked up 16 of their last 17 Premier League points at the KCOM Stadium.

City have won five of their six league games at this venue since Marco Silva took charge, drawing the other, and need to maintain that excellent run to boost their hopes of avoiding relegation.

Home advantage has to be the key factor here and the first of our Hull vs Watford betting tips is to take Evens for the Tigers to prevail.

A Look At Hull City’s Betting Odds

Hull are coming off back-to-back 3-1 defeats on the road but a trip to Manchester City was always going to be tough and they were a touch unlucky to face Stoke at a time when all their hosts’ best attacking options were back on top form.

The Tigers did have chances to compete with the Potters but Silva admitted: “The difference is clear to me – it’s the finishing. We had a lot of chances, like Stoke; they scored and we didn’t score.”

City have been far more clinical at home since the turn of the year, though, netting at least twice in eight of their last nine fixtures, including a 2-1 win over West Ham and a 4-2 defeat of Middlesbrough here at the start of the month.

Hull can be backed at 21/20 to score more than one goal against the Hornets.

A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds

Watford were able to celebrate reaching the magical 40-point mark when edging out Swansea at Vicarage Road last Saturday, with Etienne Capoue bagging the only goal to make it a hat-trick of home wins in April.

Walter Mazzarri insisted he will take nothing for granted until the Hornets are mathematically safe, commenting: “I always say that we try to reach the maximum we can. We have to do this for the next games and this is the mentality I want to give to my players.”

However, the way the Watford players responded to that victory suggested they feel it is a case of job done and that could make them vulnerable here.

The Hornets have failed to score eight times on the road this term and we like 35/4 for Hull to win 2-0.
