Hull Preview – Can Hull do the business?

Hull have a brilliant home record of W8 D1 L3 this season in League One.

They are currently on a four-match unbeaten streak of form on home turf as well.

Going into action on Tuesday night, the Tigers are the 13/10 favourites to come away with the three points* (odds recorded 22:27 GMT, Monday 8th February).

Their defence on home soil has really been on point recently as they have kept a clean sheet in three of their last four.

If they collect all three points from this fixture then they would go level on points with current leaders Lincoln, but their opponents would still have a game in hand over them.

So this is an opportunity that Hull, in terms of the title race, probably won’t want to miss.

The Tigers have conceded just 7 goals on home soil this season. That’s been an average of 0.58 per game, which is excellent.

But the one interesting thing here is their home form against teams currently in the top five.

Hull are W1 L2 from those games, losing against Peterborough and Portsmouth.

Our betting prediction:
Lincoln 1-0 correct score

Bet at William Hill

(odds recorded 22:27 GMT, Monday 8th February)


Hull haven’t been the most prolific of teams in front of goal. They have averaged just 1.25 goals per home game.

So they keep things tight. Of their eight home wins, five of them have been by a 1 goal margin.

Given that this should be a really tight battle between two good teams, the half time draw is worth a look for football betting at 11/10* (odds recorded 22:27 GMT, Monday 8th February).

We would also assume that this is going to be a low-scoring affair.

Not only does Hull have a great defensive home record this season, but Lincoln’s away record has also been outstanding.


Lincoln Preview – Can the Imps keep up their strong away form?

So with a tight battle on the cars, and with Lincoln looking to defend top spot, we see very few goals cropping up in this game.

Under 2.5 goals is at a quote of 4/5 for football betting* (odds recorded 22:27 GMT, Monday 8th February).

The away form of league leaders Lincoln has just been superb this season.

They have taken a W9 D2 L1 record on their travels and are currently on a four-match winning streak away from home.

In those twelve games, Lincoln have conceded just five away goals, which is remarkable.

So even though in the match outright they are 2/1 underdogs, they are not to be dismissed keenly* (odds recorded 22:27 GMT, Monday 8th February)..

They have banked a clean sheet in a total of 67% of their away games this season.

Not too surprisingly Lincoln have the best away record in the league and they boast the best defensive record overall.

This is the first league game between the two teams since the 2003/04 old Division 3 season.
