Hull City Preview – Will the Tigers’ winless run go on?

Hull City romped their way to the EFL League One title last term, but staying in the Championship will be number one priority for Grant McCann and his Tigers. As expected, Hull have had a tough time so far.

City kicked off their Championship campaign in the best possible way, beating Preston North End 4-1 at Deepdale. However, they have failed to win any of their following six, losing four and drawing two. After back-to-back 0-0 draws with Bournemouth and Swansea City, Hull lost 2-0 at Blackburn Rovers last time out.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 0834 GMT, Friday 17 September)

Hull could do with a win after four losses and two defeats, but this will be another hard assignment for last season’s League One winners. They are the second favourites in this one, as the bookies are offering 17/10 for a home win.

Sheffield United Preview – Can the Blades stretch unbeaten run to four?

Slavisa Jokanovic has had a tough time at Bramall Lane so far. Sheffield United, who finished rock bottom of the Premier League last term, kicked off their 2021-22 Championship season with no wins from their opening five, drawing two and losing three.

The Blades returned from the international break with a point to prove, thumping Peterborough United 6-2 at Bramall Lane. That should have been the start of something good, but the Sheffield club were held to a 2-2 home draw by Preston last time out.

Sheffield United head to the MKM Stadium unbeaten in three matches. After dropping points at home in midweek, United will be looking for maximum points on the road this weekend. The away win is priced at 8/5.


Hull City vs Sheffield United Betting Advice

These two last met in the 2018-19 Championship season. Sheffield United beat Hull home and away, following up a 1-0 home victory with a superb 3-0 win on the road. A David McGoldrick brace and an Enda Stevens goal did the damage in Hull. However, City did beat the Blades on penalties in the EFL Cup that season.


Key Facts – Hull City vs Sheffield United Betting Tip

  • Sheffield United have won three of the previous four meetings
  • Both sides have picked up just one Championship win so far
  • The Tigers are winless in seven league and cup games


With the teams languishing in the wrong half of the table early doors, both will be gunning for maximum points from this one. Hull are without a win in seven league and cup fixtures, while the Blades have taken just six points from a possible 21 so far.

United have shown signs of life in recent matches, winning one and drawing two, and we fancy them to nick the points at the MKM Stadium on Saturday. Back the away win and under 2.5 goals at 4/1. The pair should find the net in what could be a frantic fixture in East Yorkshire – the United win and both teams to score is priced at 9/2.
