Hull City are awaiting their first Championship 2018-19 win as they welcome Blackburn to the KCOM Stadium. Hull City have picked up just a point from the opening two rounds of the new season, as manager Nigel Adkins struggles with a range of issues. Blackburn Rovers boss Tony Mowbray is also waiting for his Championship win in more than a year, as the Lancashire outfit have taken just two points from as many games. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Hull City were able to sneak past Sheffield United in the second round of the League Cup as they won on penalties after a 1-1 stalemate. Hull City’s only point in the Championship campaign came against Sheffield Wednesday.
Blackburn went past Carlisle United in the League Cup following a 5-1 victory. This was the first win of the 2018-19 season for Blackburn, who have drawn both their Championship matches so far.
The recent meeting between Hull and Blackburn was only made possible due to an FA Cup draw in January 2018. Hull were able to get a narrow 1-0 win over then-League One outfit Blackburn, whose last trip to the KCOM Stadium was back in 2015 when they picked up a 1-1 draw. Our betting tips and prediction expect a win for Hull City.

Blackburn are at a price of 3.10 to pick up a victory in this match. Yet, Tony Mowbray’s men may struggle to get three points after a mediocre start to the season. Hull could only pick up a draw in the recent league match, but the team did come in with the decent performance. Even though Blackburn also had several chances to win against Millwall, the newly-promoted team did not make their chances count. It will be difficult to back Blackburn in an away match – especially against a Hull City team that is looking to recover from an opening-day loss against Aston Villa. Our preview would back a win for Hull City.

First Goalscorer odds
Fraizer Campbell came up with the goal against Sheffield Wednesday and he was quite an influence on the pitch. The forward may have just one goal in three games against Blackburn, but he is among the most likely to open the scoring.
