Cardiff City will be aiming to maintain their unbeaten start away from home this weekend as they lock horns with a Hull City side who sit just one league place below them in seventh.
The Bluebirds have had the edge in this fixture in recent years, emerging victorious in the last three meetings between the sides without conceding a goal, and Malky Mackay’s men are priced at 7/4 to inflict a third home defeat of the season on Hull.
Spirits will be high among the visitors after a midweek 2-1 home win over Championship leaders Southampton, courtesy of a Kenny Miller brace, brought their unbeaten run to six games and moved them into the play-off spots, just two points from the summit.
There will be added responsibility on Miller to provide the goals on Saturday, with strike partner Robert Earnshaw set to miss out after picking up an injury in last weekend’s stalemate against Leicester City.
Nigel Pearson’s Tigers are priced as slight favourites at 29/20 and are unbeaten in five matches, as they head into the game on the back of two consecutive 1-1 draws, which were preceded by three victories.
Goals have been at a premium in matches involving Hull so far this campaign, with six of their games ending in a 1-0 scoreline. Odds of 21/10 for there to be under 1.5 goals looks tempting, while no goals being scored can be backed at 27/4.
Despite possessing an impressive front three of Matty Fryatt, Aaron McLean and Martyn Waghorn, who scored in last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Doncaster, Hull have not managed to score more than one goal in a game.
With both sides on a run of good form and proving difficult to beat in recent weeks, it looks set to be a tight encounter and the draw should be considered at 7/4. A successful free £25 bet, available to punters who sign up to a bwin account, on this outcome would return £68.75.
