Ipswich look to shake off a disastrous set of results when they welcome Hull City to the Portman Road this weekend. Ipswich remain at the bottom of the table and the likelihood of avoiding relegation is fast slipping away from the team. The Tractor Boys are an incredible 13 points away from safety with only eight matches left. Hull City are still in the mid-table places but they can mount a surprise play-off challenge with only six points separating them from the play-off places.

Hull City have been unable to pick up a victory in the last three matches. Even as the club have their sights set on promotion, the team has dropped multiple points – especially in away matches. The last five away games for Hull have ended up as defeats for the Tigers, whose last away success came against Leeds United in 2018. Ipswich, though, continue to go through a sea of draws, as wins elude the team. It is quite incredible that the narrow home win over Rotherham back in January is the only success for Ipswich in 2019. Our preview would back a draw.

Ipswich Town win odds: 3.10
Hull City win odds: 2.37
Correct Score odds
Ipswich have just been unable to break a string of draws for the team and this is largely down to the team being unable to score goals in significant numbers. Ipswich have been able to get more than 1.5 goals only once in the calendar year. Meanwhile, Hull City have been very poor at defending in away matches with a shocking 18 goals conceded in the last six away games. Still, our correct score prediction would stick with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The incidence of low scoring games between these two teams in recent meetings have been low, but the vast majority of the meetings at Portman Road have ended up being low scoring encounter. Even with Hull’s defensive problems on the road, our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Jarrod Bowen is the top scorer for Hull City with a remarkable 21 goals so far this season. He remains in contention for the Golden Boot title following the brace against QPR. The midfielder has been able to make a remarkable run up the top scorers’ list and he has come up with seven goals in his last nine games. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Jarrod Bowen.
