Hull City hope to end their disastrous run of results when they take on Middlesbrough at the KCOM Stadium this weekend. Hull City are struggling just above the bottom three after having managed just seven points this season. It puts the club just a point above Millwall. Middlesbrough have moved level on points with Leeds United but they trail Marcelo Bielsa’s men on goal difference. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Hull City lost 3-0 against their relegation rivals Reading at the Madejski Stadium. This was a huge setback for the team and one that places more pressure on Nigel Adkins, who has seen his team lose four out of the last five games.
Middlesbrough were held to a goalless draw by Swansea at the Riverside Stadium as the team lost a golden opportunity to take the lead in the Championship 2018-19 table. Boro went on to beat Preston on penalties in the League Cup.
The recent game between the two clubs witnessed a 3-1 win for Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium. Boro picked up a similar result in the recent trip to the KCOM Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Boro.

Hull City are at a price of 3.80, which is an unattractive for a team that has lost four out of the last five games, in order to win the match. Middlesbrough may have only managed one victory in the normal time of the last five encounters in all competitions, but they have the capability to capitalise on Hull’s horrendous run. Teams like Derby and Reading have been able to put four past Hull City in recent weeks. Middlesbrough may not have a strong offence but they have enough solidarity to get a win, according to our preview.

Hull City vs Middlesbrough draw odds: 3.20
Hull City win odds: 3.80
Correct Score odds
Boro have struggled for goals in away matches with the team failing to score in the last two trips against Leeds and Norwich. Hull City’s defence, though, may help put this record straight owing to a horrendous set of results of late. The way in which Hull have been carved out in recent matches will be a source of concern for Nigel Adkins. Our correct score prediction would go with a Middlesbrough 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Tony Pulis is known for making his teams hard to beat in away matches and this invariably results in a defensive performance. Hull City may profit from the same by trying to get something out of the match, but Boro are strong enough to hold on for a slender win. Our total goals prediction would opt for under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Britt Assombalonga has performed reasonably well in recent weeks and the forward was able to score in the 2-0 victory over Bolton. He was a scorer in the last trip to the KCOM Stadium. Our first goalscorer prediction would opt for Britt Assombalonga.
