Hull City v Bristol City Betting Tips – Championship, 5th May 12.30pm

A win for Bristol City at the KCOM Stadium on Sunday could see them sneak into the play-offs. However, the Robins need Derby County and Middlesbrough to slip up in their games. Hull City have been excellent at home this season, and Nigel Adkins’ boys will want to cap off a decent campaign with another home victory this weekend. Who will come out on top in this fascinating tussle in East Yorkshire?

Hull City News and Form

Hull City kicked off their Championship campaign in poor fashion, losing four of their opening six, which piled the pressure on Adkins. However, after six wins in a row from December to January, the Tigers were dreaming of the play-offs. Despite falling away in recent months, Hull have a steady season in England’s second tier.

Hull have won 50% of their home league matches this season, picking up an impressive 38 points to boot. Before their recent 3-0 home loss to Sheffield United, City had gone 12 matches unbeaten at the KCOM Stadium, winning nine and drawing three. After that heavy loss to the Blades in their last home outing, Hull will be looking to return to winning ways in front of their home supporters on Sunday.

As we touched on, the Yorkshire club have been solid at home, but they have really struggled on the road. The Tigers have lost eight of their last 11 league and cup away fixtures, winning only one of those. Meanwhile, a 1-0 win over bottom club Ipswich Town in March is their only away triumph in 2019. Last weekend, though, Adkins’ side claimed a good 2-2 draw at Swansea City.

Bristol City News and Form

Bristol City kept their slender play-off hopes alive with a vital win against Millwall at The Den last Tuesday. Lee Johnson’s side had to come from behind in south London, with Jamie Paterson and Famara Diedhiou scoring late goals in the narrow 2-1 victory. That was City’s first victory in five.

Only promoted Norwich City (42) and Sheffield Utd (39) have picked up more away points than the Robins up until now, as Bristol City have accrued an impressive 37 points on the road this term. The Robins head to the KCOM having won six of their last ten away affairs in the Championship. 37 of their 69 points have come on their travels.

Bristol City may have given themselves too much to do in the hunt for a play-off place. The club were flying a few months back when they won seven league games in a row, but only four wins have followed since. Still, if you fancy it, Johnson’s side are priced at 16/1 to finish in the top six.

Hull City v Bristol City Predictions

Hull City win: Hull have been very strong at home in this season’s Championship, which could give them the edge in this one. Only a win will do for Bristol City, who are two points behind Derby. Unfortunately for them, I can see the Robins losing at the KCOM at the weekend. The 1-0 home win is available at the tempting price of 11/1.
