Hull City v Bristol City

STAR EVENT: Hull City v Bristol City
KC Stadium
TIME: 7.45pm

37 points separate them in the Championship and it’s long odds-on at the end of the season there will be two leagues between Hull City and Bristol City.

Hull need just four points to seal promotion to the Premier League whilst Bristol City are already condemned to League One after their defeat to Birmingham on Tuesday.

If Bristol City were to achieve the impossible and win tonight – that would ensure leaders Cardiff City were crowned champions of the Championship without kicking a ball.

But we don’t say impossible lightly, as it really is hard to envisage anything other than a Hull win and it could well be a convincing one.

The win odds are tight, obviously, but there are two things that we at Star Sports think will happen.

Firstly, there will be over 2.5 goals. There’s no reason for this game to be cagey. Bristol City are already down so will play free flowing football rather than cautiously whilst Hull are as good as up and will want to show off in front of their home crowd tonight.

The reverse fixture resulted in a 2-1 win for Hull in October and the same fixture last season a more convincing 3-0 win for Hull.

We can’t see anything beyond a Hull win, and plenty of goals.

(stake between 0.5 and 10 points)
5 points HULL-HULL HT/FT
5 points over 2.5 goals

(-3 points Wednesday)
