Hull City vs Leeds United
Date: Tuesday, 2 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: KCOM Stadium (Hull).
Leeds United look to have run into a crisis based on displays shown in the past couple of weeks. They took only one point from last two league matches. Given the opposition included the likes of Birmingham City and Sheffield Wednesday, we can say it was a disappointing return.
The Peacocks have another very much winnable affair ahead of them as they are set to play the bottom-half Hull City on Tuesday evening. The Tigers have a poor record of two wins, two draws and six defeats in ten games so far in the season.
They did, however, end a two-loss streak on Saturday, holding the second-placed Middlesbrough to a 1-1 draw at KCOM Stadium.
Hull City vs Leeds United: Head-to-head
The draw was the most frequent of outcomes in the history of head to head games between these two likes.
It happened six times in 14 matches and as many as 4 in 7 games at KCOM.
Leeds United came on top winning four points in the previous term of the Championship (1-0 at Elland Road and 0-0 at KCOM).
The Peacocks won just one of seven away matches against the Tigers.
Hull City vs Leeds United: Prediction
Leeds come into this as favourites, but we can’t see the value in backing the away win at the odds of 2.10 here. The Peacocks looked unrecognizably toothless up front in last two league outings and we feel they might struggle in the build-up play here against the Tigers who held Boro to a 1-1 draw at the weekend.
Marcelo Bielsa can be thrilled with his men’s display at the back, though. Leeds have the second-best defensive record in the league with only eight conceded goals so far in the season. Based on everything written above, the Under 2.5 goals FT bet looks decent at the odds of 2.00.
We’ll skip the away win and go for Hull City not to score two or more goals on the evening as a banker at 1.40.
