Sheffield United may have gained a huge foothold in the race to achieve automatic promotion, but the team has not been entirely convincing in recent matches. The narrow win over Preston and Nottingham Forest (when the opposition was reduced to 10 men) are not sufficient. The game against Hull City is probably the biggest challenge left on paper for the Blades and the Tigers could end up making the most of their incredible home form to get a point, according to our preview.

Sheffield United win odds: 1.95
Correct Score odds
Hull City have been close to sensational when it comes to home matches after going unbeaten in 12 games at the KCOM Stadium. The team has been able to get over 2 goals on average in the last six matches at home. However, the defensive strength of Sheffield United can end up preventing a large number of goals. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The recent games between Hull and Sheffield United have been very tight with just one of the last three meetings producing even more than 1.5 goals in total. In this circumstance, it is difficult to expect a big and high-scoring match due to the stakes involved for the visiting team. Our total goals prediction would pick under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Jarred Bowen may remain as Hull City’s top scorer with 21 goals, but he has been unable to find the back of the net in more than a month – a run stretching across five matches. However, Bowen has been able to get most of its goals at the KCOM Stadium. Bowen has never scored against Sheffield United, but this match may signify an end to this run. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Jarred Bowen.
