Blackburn to win
We kick off our tips for this match by backing Blackburn to win. Hull have been in reasonable for of late having won two games on the spin but prior to that they'd lost back to back games whilst they've also lost four of their last five home games. Blackburn meanwhile are looking in really good shape. Rovers have won four of their last five games and are on a three game winning streak as they arrive here. Combine that with the fact that Blackburn have beaten Hull in four of the last five head to head meetings between the sides and Hull look to have their work cut out.
Going over 2.5 goals
Our next prediction for this game comes from the total goals market and we are opting for an over 2.5 goals wager. Hull have seen three of their last five games, including each of their last two, go north of the 2.5 cut off with a combined goals haul of 17; that's gives them a game average of 3.4 per match. Blackburn meanwhile don't have quite the same punch when it comes to average goals per game at just 2.4 but three of their previous five games have gone north of that 2.5 marker. With offs of 23/20 (2.15) on offer, we think the over bet represents decent value!
Here are the key stats & form guide for Hull vs Blackburn
Can Blackburn keep pressure on leading teams?
Blackburn are sitting pretty in the table right now as they're just two points off the top. For Hull, it's been somewhat of a slower start but with recent results being positive they've edged themselves into the mid table picture and will now be looking at the top half rather than relegation. With those positions considered, the three points on offer here are going to carry big value for both sides.
Hull have managed to get some decent results of late in spite of their injuries. They'll be without a fair few players again here; Callum Elder, Vaughn Covill and Benjamin Tetteh are amongst half a dozen rules out with fitness issues.
Hull Predicted lineup – Baxter, Christie, Greaves, Jones, Figueiredo, Seri, Woods, Slater, Pelkas, Docherty, Longman
Blackburn are without Daniel Ayala and Sam Barnes but, given how they've been bagging results of late, they'll still be confident of getting the win here. Ben Brereton Diaz remains a key player for Rovers.
Blackburn Predicted lineup – Kaminski, Wharton, Carter, Hyam, Morton, Travis, Hedges, Pickering, Wharton, Diaz, Gallagher
