Hull City will be seeking to return to winning ways when they entertain Ipswich Town at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday. Nigel Adkins’ side have endured a difficult start to the new campaign and they are just above the drop zone on goal difference after picking up just a solitary victory. Ipswich have also struggled during the opening phase and they are one of three sides yet to secure a win. The visitors are rooted to the drop zone with only Reading behind them. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Hull suffered their second straight defeat before the international break as they were beaten 2-1 by Derby County. Todd Kane had equalised for Hull in the second half but that came to no avail as Florian Josefzoon bagged an 88th-minute winner for Derby.
On the contrary, Ipswich continued their winless run to the campaign as they played out a 1-1 draw over Norwich City in the East Anglian derby. The stalemate was their third in six league matches this season.
Hull most recently faced Ipswich at Portman Road in March where they secured a comfortable 3-0 triumph. The last meeting at the KCOM Stadium finished in a 2-2 draw. Our betting tips and predictions fancy a win for Hull.

Ipswich are given a price of 3.50 to secure their first league triumph but we are not expecting this outcome. Ipswich have not attained a single victory since the start of the season and their task does not get any easier with their poor league record versus Hull. The visitors are without a win against Hull over the past decade. Our preview predicts Hull to come up with three points.

Hull City vs Ipswich Town draw odds: 3.40
Ipswich Town win odds: 3.50
Correct Score odds
Over the past decade, the teams have faced each other on 10 occasions and Hull have been thoroughly dominant with seven wins and three draws. As a result, we are anticipating a victory for the hosts, but they may be vulnerable at the back with no shutouts this term. Our correct score prediction is to go for a Hull 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The games between Hull and Ipswich have often tended to be high scoring and just one of the previous five meetings has witnessed less than three goals. A repeat appears a genuine possibility this weekend with neither side restricting the opposition from scoring this season. Our total goals prediction expects over 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals over 2.5 at 1.95[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Fraizer Campbell has been the pick of the Hull goalscorer this term and he has already netted twice across all competitions. He has opened the scoring once during the 1-1 draw versus Sheffield Wednesday last month. Campbell has yet to contribute a goal in two attempts against Ipswich. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Campbell.
