Hull City vs Swansea Prediction
Swansea usually takes part in games that are lopsided. Lopsided in the sense that the final scoreline will have an odd number of goals. The claim is supported by the fact that, last seven of Swansea’s games in a row had an odd number of goals. Disregarding three 0-0 matches, the last 18 away fixtures of Swansea also had the same stat. That trend is likely to continue this weekend.
Other than QPR and Derby, no team has won more first halves than Hull. The hosts, Hull, know exactly how to take advantage of their home ground. It’s highly likely that Hull will get on the scoresheet early in the match.
In the total 44 games between these teams, a combined 104 goals were celebrated. The above two stats point out that the first half will not be goalless.
