Sheffield Wednesday look to put behind a disappointing start to the campaign when they take on Hull City at the Hillsborough Stadium this weekend. Wednesday were able to finish well clear of the drop last season, but the team will have ambitions of finishing higher up the table in this current campaign. Hull City are still struggling in the Championship and the club would be quite happy to enjoy a mid-table finish. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Wednesday suffered a 3-2 defeat against Wigan in a game that could have gone either way for the number of chances that fell to both teams.
Despite taking the lead against Aston Villa, Hull City suffered a 3-1 loss at the KCOM Stadium. This compounded problems for manager Nigel Adkins, who has seen his team go through a difficult pre-season.
The recent game between Hull and Wednesday ended up as a victory for the latter with a 1-0 score at the KCOM Stadium. The last meeting at the Hillsborough stadium produced a 2-2 draw. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a draw.

Hull City are at a price of 3.30 while Wednesday are at a substantially lower 2.37 for the same outcome. However, this is a fixture that appears to be made only out of stalemate with very few teams managing to get three points at the end of 90 minutes. In fact, the last six meetings has witnessed Wednesday and Hull City managing a solitary victory each. After the opening day disappointment for both clubs, a draw would suit Nigel Atkins and Jos Luhukay.

Hull City win odds: 3.30
Sheffield Wednesday win odds: 2.37
Correct Score odds
The two teams have been quite mediocre at the back and this is likely to result in a game that has goals at both ends. Sheffield Wednesday were particularly impressive going forward and they are expected to make a difference at the other end. Hull City should be able to hang on considering that Nigel Adkins would not like a second consecutive defeat to start the new season. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The two teams were involved in high-scoring matches at the start of the campaign, but the large shipment of goals is likely to get them awake for this encounter. Past games between these two teams have been tight – apart from the latest meeting at Hillsborough Stadium. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Fernando Forestieri took just 67 minutes in order to open his account for the campaign. In the absence of Nuhiu due to suspension, Forestieri may have a greater role to build on his impressive performance against Wigan. His last goal against Hull was in 2015 but our first goalscorer prediction would go with the striker.
