Hull City vs West Brom
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 9 November 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: KCOM Stadium (Hull).
Toppers West Brom will be tested to their limits this Saturday. They may be the overall best at the moment in the Championship, and they may have lost just a single tie since the start of the league campaign, but do take note that they are on the road, and are taking on one of the most in-form squads at present.
Hull won their last three league appearances in a row and coupled with their recent rejuvenation, we can expect a tough fight from the hosts.
Despite all this, do not take the toppers lightly. They are in possession of that spot for a reason.

Hull City vs West Brom Prediction
The Tigers won in style against Fulham the other day. It’s worth mentioning that the latter had just been relegated from the top-most Premier League at the end of last season, and even with the aid of home advantage, the squad had to concede defeat against Hull, with a 0-3 scorecard.
Leaders West Brom meanwhile, made light work of their away handicap and recorded a win at the famed home of Stoke. And that too with a clean sheet as well.
With their incredible form overall, and especially on the road, Slaven Bilic’s men will hold the upper hand here. They have scored the most number of goals, and have lost the least (just one), and is the frontrunner to get promoted at the end of the campaign.
They are also the best cavalry on the road in the Championship, and on top of that, they dominated this same opponent in h2h clashes, especially recently. As such, count on the potential champions to avoid a loss, and keep their momentum going.
However, taking into account the current form of the Tigers, their home advantage, and the performances of the teams at home in h2h encounters, a clean sheet for West Brom seems something too good to come true.
Consequently, backing the BTTS wager looks a promising option.
