Bitesize Prediction: Hull City vs Sheffield United – 04/09/22

Competition: Championship

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 3/10 @ 888sport

In what could be an enjoyable affair on Sunday afternoon, Hull will welcome a high-flying Sheffield United to the KCOM this weekend.

Starting with the hosts, while Hull might have enjoyed an eye-catching start to the 2022/23 campaign, the Tigers are now seeking some stability. Last seen earlier in the week getting hit with a 3-1 defeat away at QPR, there is no doubt that the Yorkshire-based outfit will be glad to make a return to home soil. Although Shota Arveladze’s men might have managed to muster just a single win from their last four Championship matchups, it should be noted that Hull have gained a reputation for their eye-catching run at the KCOM. Including a shock 2-1 victory against Norwich on August 13th, Sunday’s guests have won each of their opening three showdowns in front of their own supporters. However, it is worth highlighting, Arveladze’s side have seen their last six straight outings finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, after suffering heartbreak in the play-offs last season, Sheffield United have made it clear that a Premier League return is at the top of their agenda this time around. Laying down a real marker last time out as they breezed their way to a thumping 4-0 win at home against Reading, the Blades have come flying out of the traps. Knowing that another victory on Sunday would see them leapfrog Norwich to the top of the table, Paul Heckingbottom’s men have gained plenty of plaudits. In fact, including an impressive 3-0 victory against Blackburn on August 20th, United are in the midst of a five-match unbeaten run. Appearing to have found a real clinical edge in the final third, don’t be surprised to see what could be an enjoyable affair at the KCOM here.

Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Hull City vs Sheffield United 3/10 for Sunday’s Championship contest @ 888sport
