Hull v Newcastle Predictions & Betting Odds – 29th November 2016
The Tigers have found the League Cup a nice escape from their woes in the relegation zone of the Premier League. They have a huge fight for survival on their hands there, but could likely enjoy a huge confidence boost if they could make it through to the semi finals of the Cup. However, they take on a good Newcastle side who have been carrying some good form lately. The Magpies have won their last two visits to Hull, comprehensively as well, and so it is the visitors who will be going off as favourites in the hunt for a place in the final four.

Hull v Newcastle Betting Tips
Big game for Hull who would love to move through to the semi finals of the League Cup, but of course have much more important things to deal with in the Premier League. They scrapped out a home point against West Brom in the Premier League on the weekend after a decent second half performance. But it wasn’t a great boost really considering that they have only won two of their last nine games across all competitions. Hull have won six games only all season and three of those have been in the League Cup. So far in this season’s competition they have produced wins over Exeter, Stoke and Bristol City and all of those games have been out on the road. So they go into their first Cup game at home this season and with fans deserting them in their home game in the league this weekend, the atmosphere may not be on their side. Hull hold a W2 D1 L4 record in their home games in all competitions, failing to score in three of them and totalling just six goals.
Both teams not to score in this tie at bookmaker Bet365 will return a price of 3/4. The last time that Hull and Newcastle were together was in the Premier League just a couple of season’s ago and Newcastle came out on top with a win and draw over the clashes. The win for the Mapgies came at the KC and that was an easy 3-0 win for them. It means that the Tigers are now winless in their last three (D1 L2) against Newcastle and at home, they have failed to win any of their last four against the Magpies. So even taking their poor form this season out of the picture, this isn’t an easy game for the Tigers. Over 2.5 goals with Bet365 on the game is running at a price of 19/20 and that will be based on each of the last four between them going over the goal line. Hull are still waiting for their first clean home sheet this season so Newcastle will create chances. With Hull missing Abel Hernandez and Will Keane up front, they may struggle to outscore the Magpies
Championship leaders Newcastle are running on a W13 D1 L4 record in the league so far this season, so they are strong. They were on a nine match winning streak across all competitions before Blackburn went to St James Park on the weekend and took a surprise win, snapping Newcastle’s great form. Given how well they have gone this season, that is likely to be just a bit of a blip and they have been very strong out on the road this season as well having posted a W7 D1 L1 record on their travels. They have also bagged six clean sheets in those nine away games too. You could go with a Newcastle to win to nil wager in this fixtur at Bet365 for 11/4. Up in the anytime goalscorer market, Dwight Gayle is a 5/4 shot, with Aleksandar Mitrovic at 7/4. The Championship side won’t have anything to fear here really.

Hull v Newcastle Predictions
We would expect a strong performance from Newcastle here against an out of sorts Hull side. The Magpies have enough scoring power in their ranks to make light work of this one and they are the more confident and well balanced of the two sides easily. So look for the Magpies to roll out a win in this one in a fixture which goes over 2.5 goals based on the recent history between the two of them. This is a big chance for Rafa Benitez’s men to take a step towards some silverware.
