Hull City are given a price of 6.00 to win the match. Yet, we would not choose this option. The Blades have been on such a brilliant run of form that it is difficult to look beyond a win for the home team. Even though Hull have been able to lose only twice in the last five competitive visits to Bramall Lane, they encounter a Sheffield United team on a spectacular run of form with Billy Sharp scoring a bulk of goals. Our preview would go with a win for Sheffield United.

Hull City win odds: 6.00
Correct Score odds
The Blades have been profiting immensely from Billy Sharp’s incredible form. The striker has been one of the top scorers in the division. Hull City have struggled going forward and the team has registered just 10 league goals – the second fewest tally in the league so far. Our correct score prediction would go with a Sheffield United 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The Blades have largely been involved in low scoring matches against Hull City and the lack of goals from the visitors is likely to extend the trend even further. Even though Sheffield United have been the third best scorers so far this season, our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals due to the lack of contribution from the visitors.

First Goalscorer odds
Billy Sharp has been in sensational form after managing four goals in his last three games. This has helped him take his league tally to seven for the campaign. The 32-year-old has four goals in 10 games against Hull City across all competitions. Even though this is not the best record, our first goalscorer prediction would back Sharp due to his recent form.
