Bitesize Prediction: Hull vs Huddersfield – 01/04/22

Competition: Championship

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 2/5 @ 888sport

Desperate to mark their return from the international break with a much-needed boost, Huddersfield will make the trip to Hull on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, heading into March’s international break with a thumping 3-1 defeat at home against Luton, it is fair to say that Hull almost find themselves sat in Championship limbo. Marking their return to action holding a commanding 13-point buffer over slipping into the drop zone, new boss Shota Arveladze will be hoping for his side to find some stability at the back end of the season. However, despite impressing with a 2-0 win away at Coventry on March 16th, the Tigers have gained a reputation for their continued struggles on home soil. Including a shock 2-0 loss against leading relegation scrappers Barnsley, Hull have now lost each of their last five home fixtures by an aggregate score of 9-1. Suffering a 2-0 loss when they faced off against Friday’s guests back in October, Arveladze’s side could be in for a tough test.

As for the visitors, while Huddersfield might still find themselves sat in pole position to book a play-off spot this season, they do mark their return to action seeking a much-needed boost. Last seen on March 19th getting hit with a 3-0 drumming against Bournemouth on home soil, Head Coach Carlos Corberán has seen his side fail to win any of their last four matchups against Championship opposition. Crashing out of the FA Cup thanks to a 2-1 loss against Nottingham Forest on the road, Huddersfield will know that they cannot afford many more slip-ups. However, claiming a deserved 2-0 win when they welcomed Hull to the John Smith’s Stadium back in October, the former Leeds coach should be smelling a potential chance. With each of the last five meetings between Friday’s opponents seeing over 1.5 goals by the final whistle, we’re backing a similar outcome here.

Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Hull vs Huddersfield 2/5 for Friday’s Championship battle @ 888sport
