Hull City had ambition last season but failed and barely survived in the bottom end of the table. The team looks to have some familiar problems as it was last season. The defense looks to be leaking goals again which was their main problem last campaign. The Tigers look to be capable of scoring but protecting their own goal looks more problematic.

The team managed to knock out Sheffield Untied in the Carabao Cup midweek but the league looks to be of greater importance. So far Hull have lost at home to Aston Villa and took their only point so far in their visit at Hillsborough.

Blackburn are traditionally strong side with the team having plenty of experience in the English top flight. Following their promotion to the EFL Championship the team needs to stabilize themselves first and later may even think for another promotion.

They smashed Carlisle in the Carabao cup last game scoring 5. In the league though they have 2 draws at Ipswich and home against Millwall. Interestingly Rovers were the better side against Millwall and should be a little disappointed with gaining only the draw.

Hull vs Blackburn: Predictions

Hull may have been in the Premier League 2 seasons ago but the team now looks in trouble.

Inability to prevent their opponents from scoring puts them in dangerous position.

Blackburn are a side that has proved that can score goals and against Hull City’s defensive record they will do it again.

Hull vs Blackburn: Bet Tips

  • Blackburn to win at 23/10 (3.30).
  • Over 2.5 goals at 11/10 (2.10).
