Hull City have the chance to secure a fifth-straight victory when they entertain Bolton Wanderers at the KCOM Stadium on New Year’s Day. The Yorkshire outfit remained unbeaten through the month of December and they are mid-table with a nine-point gap to the playoff positions. Bolton, however, have been in a relegation battle for most of the season but a run of two unbeaten games has helped them stay ahead of the drop zone on goal difference. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Hull made it four league victories on the bounce on Saturday after they secured a surprise 2-0 win over Leeds United on the road. Jarrod Bowen starred with a goal in either half of the Yorkshire derby.
Bolton managed to go undefeated for the second successive match after settling for 0-0 draw against Stoke City in their stadium. The Trotters have made a mini-revival of late with four points from the past two games.
Hull previously faced Bolton at the Macron Stadium in October where the bagged a slender 1-0 win. The last encounter at the KCOM Stadium saw them come up triumphs by a comfortable 4-0 scoreline. Our betting tips and predictions expect a Hull win.

Bolton are priced at 5.75 for a winning start to 2018 but we are not fancying this outcome against one of the league’s in-form teams at present. Bolton have recently secured four points from the past two games but neither of those results have been on the road where their record has been dire. Bolton have not won on the road since August and that trend should not change on Tuesday with Hull possessing a vastly better attack front. Our preview is to go for a Hull win.

Hull City vs Bolton Wanderers draw odds: 3.40
Bolton Wanderers win odds: 5.75
Correct Score odds
Hull have been consistently finding the scoresheet over the past month and they have netted at least two goals in each of the previous four matches. Bolton have not enjoyed a similar scoring run and they have drawn a blank in three games during the same period. Hull should comfortably dominate the proceedings and a clean sheet remains a possibility against the league’s worst scoring side. Our correct score prediction favours a Hull 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Hull have dominated the fixture in their stadium and they have won their past four meetings with Bolton failing to score in three of those. The trend should continue on Tuesday with the visitors drawing blank in 50% of their away trips this season. Our total goals prediction fancies less than 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals under 2.5 at 1.65[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Jarrod Bowen had an impressive run during the festive period with six goals from as many matches and he managed to open the scoring on two occasions including the recent triumph at Leeds. Bowen has a good run against Bolton after two goals from just three appearances. Our first goalscorer prediction would go with Bowen.
