Sheffield United to win

We kick off our tips for this game by predicting Sheffield United to win this game. The Blades are in a superb run of form right now with just one defeat in their last 10 games along with eight wins in that time too. What's more notable though is that the defeat we mention came back in November meaning they're now on a eight game unbeaten run where they've won seven and drawn one. Hull meanwhile are no pushovers but they have only won two of their last 10 games. Combine that with the fact Sheffield Utd have won four of the last five head to head games without losing and it's tough to justify any outcome that isn't a home win.

Both teams to score

Our next prediction for this match comes from the both teams to score market and we are backing ‘yes'. Sheffield Utd have seen both teams score in three of their last five home games including each of their last two. Hull have seen three of their last five away games also end with goals at both ends. It's not just the recent form that supports our ‘yes' prediction though; three of the last five head to head games played at Bramall Lane have seen both teams register on the scoresheet. We see the same happening here and odds of 10/11 (1.91) make that bet all the more appealing.

So, that gives you some insight into the form of both sides and some of the available betting odds. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game and how might that impact your view of our predictions? Let's find out.

Sheffield United odds: 5/8 (1.63) – 62%

Draw odds: 14/5 (3.80) – 26%

Hull odds: 13/3 (5.33) – 19%

You don't need to know much about statistics to realise that Sheffield United are heavily fancied by the bookmakers to win this game. We agree with that sentiment but the odds available for the draw might attract a few nibbles from punters given the form Hull have shown of late. Not all markets are priced with such a vast contrast as the match result though. The total goals market contains two odds on prices for ‘over' and ‘under' 2.5 goals.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Sheffield Utd vs Hull

Sheffield United

Sheffield Utd are purring right now and they're highly unlikely to make many tweaks to their side that swept Stoke aside last time out. That will see them line up in a 3-5-2 formation. On the fitness front, they've got five players ruled out with injuries, however, the majority are due back in training soon – although that won't help them here.

Predicted lineup – Foderingham, Egan, Robinson, Ahmedhodzic, Bogle, Berge, Norwood, McAtee, Lowe, Ndiaye, Sharp

Hull

Hull won't be making too many changes for this game regardless of the fact they have their work cut out against a strong Sheffield Utd side. The Tigers have been in good form themselves and don't have huge injury concerns right now with just the three players sidelined. We wouldn't be overly surprised to see a return to the XI that started their recent away win over Wigan.

Predicted lineup – Ingram, Greaves, McLoughlin, Jones, Christie, Seri, Docherty, Longman, Slater, Sayyadmanesh, Estupinan

*Starting lineups are usually announced one hour prior to kick off.

Player to watch

We might have backed Sheffield Utd to win this game but it's a Hull player we're picking out here – Oscar Estupinan. His league goal tally for the season stands at 12 goals and, recently, he's been bang in form. His last five games have yielded four goals with the one game where he didn't score being a 19 minute runout in the FA Cup against Premier League opposition.
