A Look at Hull’s Betting Odds
What a start to the season it has been for Hull, whose odds to be relegated have bloated out to 87/100 after two league wins from two.
Despite their consensus-ridiculing start to proceedings, victories over champions Leicester City and forecasted fellow scrappers Swansea City are not expected to be replicated against Manchester United. Their odds to beat the Tigers are just 9/20.
The hosts’ winning streak stretched into the EFL Cup in midweek, where they overcame Exeter City 3-1. It’s a meaty 6/1 they make it four on the spin across all competitions this weekend, though they next face a foe whom they’ve come off second best against in seven of eight Premier League duels.
A goalless draw garnered on the final day of the 2014/15 campaign is the only positive result Mike Phelan’s team have posted against their forthcoming opponents across the timeframe in question, though they have managed to rustle United’s net on a couple of instances.
If they are to do so once again, betting on them to bag in the final 15 minutes looks the way to play, with no fewer than four of the five Tigers goals registered in the last two matches falling in the final throes. The odds for Hull to score at least one goal between 75:01 and full time are 4/1.
A Look at Man Utd’s Betting Odds
As one may have guessed, Zlatan Ibrahimovic hasn’t taken his time over acclimatising to Premier League life. The superstar Swede has struck in each of the three competitive games he has played on English soil in a United jersey, but it’ll be a seasoned Red Devil who does the damage against Hull.
Just one of the aforementioned seven Red Devils wins against the Tigers saw them fail to score fewer than three goals and the white-hot form with which they’ve started this season is indicative of another big win, with Rooney firing them to it.
The England skipper has put Hull to the sword aplenty in the past, netting no fewer than seven goals in his past five appearances against this adversary.
Rooney’s odds of 13/10 to score at any time headline the Hull v Man Utd betting, while it’s an equally-enticing 9/2 that says the 30-year-old is on target before any of his peers here.
