Hull City can extend their five-match winning streak in the Championship when they face Sheffield Wednesday at the KCOM Stadium this weekend. The Yorkshire outfit have been the in-form team in the Championship over the past month and their rich of vein of form sees them within seven points off the playoff positions. Wednesday, meanwhile, have fared reasonably well with an unbeaten run since mid-December but they are still trailing their weekend opponents by four points after successive draws. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Hull secured a fifth-straight league win on New Year’s Day after they secured an overwhelming 6-0 triumph over Bolton Wanderers. They could not translate the form into the FA Cup, as they were beaten 2-1 at the hands of Millwall.
Wednesday made it four matches unbeaten in the Championship after securing a 1-1 scoreline against Birmingham City earlier this month. The outcome was the same against Luton in the FA Cup third round where a 0-0 draw has enforced a replay.
Hull’s last meeting against Wednesday was at the Hillsborough Stadium in August which finished all square in a 1-1 draw. Their previous home encounter against Wednesday saw the visitors secure a 1-0 triumph. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a home win.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Hull City win at 2.05[/bet_tip_now]
Wednesday are priced at 3.75 for an away win but we are not predicting this result against the league’s in-form side. Hull are currently on an eight-match unbeaten league streak, which includes five straight wins, and their goalscoring prowess alone should make the difference against Wednesday, who have picked up just 35% of the points on offer on the road . Our preview fancies a sixth successive league win for Hull.

Hull City vs Sheffield Wednesday draw odds: 3.40
Sheffield Wednesday win odds: 3.75
Correct Score odds
In terms of the scoring, Hull have been superior in the past five league matches and they have averaged three goals per game when compared to Wednesday’s one. The Yorkshire outfit should be backed for nothing less than a comfortable home win, but they may concede the odd goal and the visitors have netted in four successive away games. Our correct score prediction favours a Hull 3-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Hull’s free-scoring nature over the past month has contributed to more than three goals in the past two home matches. We are anticipating a similar high-scoring fest for the weekend, given Wednesday have produced at least three goals in 70% of their away games this term. Our total goals prediction fancies more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Jarrod Bowen has been impressive in the Championship since December and he has netted seven goals in as many appearances. He has netted the opening goal on two occasions and he should be the favourite to repeat the feat with the rich vein of form. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Bowen.
