Brentford vs Hull City
English League Championship
Date: Sunday, 6 May 2018
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: Griffin Park, Brentford.
The poor kick off to the campaign left the Bees out of the playoffs contest which is why the streak of four wins and a draw in five games before last weekend’s loss to Barnsley will count for little ahead of the final game of the season against Hull City on Sunday afternoon.
The loss at Oakwell was indeed a shocking one for Dean Smith and his men, coming off the back of the mentioned streak. It left the Bees four points shy of Derby County in sixth, meaning the hosts have nothing but prided to play for here against Hull City,
The situation is quite similar with Hull City who had a dreadful campaign right after dropping from the elite class last term. They sit 18th in the league ladder in spite of the fact they’ve scored the equal number of goals as the second-placed Cardiff City which best proved how horrific team’s defensive line has been throughout the campaign.
Brentford vs Hull City: Head-to-head
Interestingly, none of last 14 head to head matches between these two sides ended without a winner.
Hull City scored two or more goals in each of last three meetings with the Bees, winning them all.
This term’s clash at KCOM saw a five-goal thriller with the Tigers coming on top 3-2 at the end.
Brentford vs Hull City: Prediction
Both sides will be hoping to end the season on a high here, but without a strong imperative, meaning we could really be in for goals at Griffin Park. The match played in December last year at KCOM also offered a high-scoring affair and we just have to shoot for the Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS at the 1.72 here.
The hosts are much closer to the win given they’ve clinched back-to-back victories at Griffin Park (against Ipswich Town and Queens Park Rangers). The home win & BTTS is thus a standout bet at the 2.90 odds.
Brentford vs Hull City: Bet Tips
Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS @ 1.72
Brentford to win & BTTS @ 2.90.
