Hull vs Leicester Betting Tips

  • Leicester to win @ 23/20
  • Half-time/full-time - Draw/Leicester @ 9/2

The Foxes had lost three on the spin to let others close the gap at the top of the table, but they got back to winning ways in midweek, beating Sunderland 1-0 away from home.

Hull are unbeaten in six in the second tier, but they have drawn three in a row and will hope that they can frustrate the league leaders on home soil.

Team News

Hull boss Liam Rosenior is still without strike duo Liam Delap and Aaron Connolly, which means Ozan Tufan and Fabio Carvalho could continue in the final third.

Should he change his formation, Noah Ohio and Anass Zaroury are waiting in the wings to start.

Leicester centre-back Jannik Vestergaard is available again after serving a one-match suspension, but Ricardo Pereira, Dennis Praet and Kasey McAteer are unavailable through injury.

Match Odds

Hull are available at odds of 12/5 despite their recent unbeaten run, while the draw is priced the same for this Saturday's battle.

Enzo Maresca's side are considered 23/20 favourites for the clash in East Yorkshire, while those that fancy an open game can back over 2.5 goals at 4/5.

Both teams to score is available at 4/6, while Patson Daka is the favourite to score anytime at 9/5.

Leicester to win @ 23/20

The Foxes are great value on Saturday at odds against, especially considering their away form.

Maresca's men have won 13 of their 18 games on the road in the Championship, and their win over Sunderland restored some confidence.

Leicester have only lost twice away from home this year, and one of those came against Leeds, where they had a goal wrongly ruled out when leading which would have all but handed them the win.

Hull have proven they can string results together, but they lack the cutting edge to see off Leicester, who should overpower them on their travels.

Leicester to beat Hull at 23-20

Half-time/full-time - Draw/Leicester @ 9/2

The first meeting between these two sides ended 1-0 to the Tigers, but that came way back in September.

Leicester have kicked on since then, and while Hull have improved, it is injuries that are hampering them at the minute.

Hull have only scored two or more goals in three of their last 11 in the second tier, but they do keep things tight at the back. They have only conceded two goals or more in one of their previous six and in three of their last 10.

To get a result against Leicester, they will need to employ similar tactics and it should be Leicester that benefit as they will come on strong as the game progresses.
