Betting Tips for the game
Hull suffered their third defeat in five league matches as they were beaten 2-0 by Stoke City on the road. They have since endured another disappointing result after being thumped 4-0 by Derby in the League Cup second round.
On the contrary, Derby have been on the rise and they acquired their second straight triumph after beating Preston North End 2-0 in front of their supporters. The Rams have since dominated the proceedings versus Hull in the midweek Cup game. Martyn Waghorn starred with a goal and an assist.
Hull’s most recent meeting against Derby was on Tuesday night where they were comfortably beaten 4-0 during the League Cup second round. Hull are now winless against their Derbyshire counterparts since May 2016. Our betting tips and predictions expect a Derby win.

Hull are offered tempting odds of 2.70 for the win but the outcome appears unlikely this weekend. The Yorkshire outfit have looked out of sorts defensively since the start of the campaign and they can expect a tough challenge against Derby after being outclassed by the same opponents in midweek. Hull are presently on a four-match losing league run on their home turf but that record may not cease on Saturday. Our preview expects a comfortable win for the visitors.

Hull City vs Derby County draw odds: 3.20
Correct Score odds
Hull have not kept a clean sheet after the first five games and they have conceded nine goals in the process. Derby have also leaked seven goals from the start but they have improved of late with three straight clean sheets. Since 2012, Hull have netted just once against Derby at home with no victories and this should lean towards another comfortable afternoon for the visitors. Our score prediction expects a Derby 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Derby have had the upper hand in the fixture over the years and they have accumulated four victories from the last five meetings at the KCOM Stadium. Out of those, three have resulted in two or less goals and the same could be witnessed this weekend. Hull are expected to field the regulars after experimenting in midweek. Our total goals prediction expects less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Chelsea loanee Mason Mount has made a huge impression for Derby this season and he has already netted on four occasions across all competitions. The teenager was on the scoresheet during the midweek triumph over Hull. He had also netted the opener in the 2-0 win over Preston North End. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Mount.
