Leeds United 6/5 to beat Hull City and under 3.5 goals for Saturday’s Championship contest

Competition: Championship

Market: Leeds win and under 3.5 goals

Odds: 6/5 @ Bet 365

Reigniting their promotion charge and finding their form at what could be a crucial time, Leeds will make the trip to a downbeat KCOM Stadium on Saturday lunchtime.

Starting with the hosts, while Hull might have appeared to be a side finding their feet under Grant McCann back in December, the Tigers have come crashing back down to earth in rather dramatic fashion. Hit with a shock 1-0 defeat against relegation scrappers Barnsley at the KCOM in midweek, the former Peterborough boss has a real crisis on his hands. Without a Championship win since New Year’s Day and now losing nine of their last 10 matches across all formats, Hull have also continued to show some glaring issues on home soil. Remarkably, the former Premier League outfit have failed to record a win in front of their own supporters since opening 2020 and they have also lost six of their last seven matchups at the KCOM.

As for the visitors, putting in another rugged display and grabbing their third-consecutive 1-0 win away at Middlesbrough in midweek, Leeds have managed to make a much-needed return to winning ways. Widening their buffer in the top-two back to five points, Marcelo Bielsa’s men have a reputation for doing just enough to come away with all three points. Landing three clean sheets on the bounce and showing some of the defensive resolve they were famous for earlier in the season, fans around Elland Road should be confident of making it four wins on the bounce this weekend. Picking up what was a routine 2-0 win when they hosted the Tigers in West Yorkshire over the festive period, Leeds rightfully open Saturday’s contest as an overwhelming favorite with the bookmakers.
