Hull to move within touching distance of Championship
Hull beating Lincoln isn't an absolute banker but there is certainly enough in the statistics to support our prediction. The Imps have lost two of their last five home games whilst Hull have taken an impressive 13 points from their past 15 on the road; that run of form forms part of a larger 12 match unbeaten streak for the Tigers. If recent results aren't enough for you to part with you hard earned stake then it's also worth remembering that Hull can confirm their promotion if results fall their way this weekend. What more of an incentive do a side need to turn up?
The goals to flood in?
When it comes to making the prediction that this game will contain over 2.5 goals it's nice to take comfort in the fact that Hull are the leagues leading scorers with 75 goals in their 43 matches; their games have averaged 2.6 goals per game across that period. More recently, that number has increased to 3.2 with each of their last five seeing at least three goals. Then there is Lincoln who are closing in on confirming their playoff spot. Three of their last five matches have broken the 2.5 level. Their average in that time is as per their season average; both 2.6 goals.
Hull to score a few
Our tips to this point have backed Hull to win with a minimum of three goals in the game. Now we make the prediction that at least two of those goals are scored by Hull. The Tigers have scored at least two in each of their last five games and have fell below that just twice in their 12 match unbeaten run. With Lincoln having recorded just two clean sheets in their past 10 home games, it seems like good value.

Irrespective of how this game plays out both teams should still end the season where they want; that means Hull in the top two and Lincoln in the top six. Of course, despite that fact, a win for either side will all but have those goals confirmed with time to spare. That should make for a good, open match.
