West Brom take on Hull City at the Hawthorns hoping to profit from any slipups by Sheffield United in the third place. At the same time, West Brom also have to be aware of the threat from Aston Villa for the fourth place. The Baggies only hold a four-point advantage over Villa, who have better momentum coming into the last four games. Hull City still have hope of qualifying for the play-offs with the team now just five points behind the top six. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
West Brom were able to come up with a strong 4-1 success over Preston to overcome sequence of back-to-back losses in away matches. This big win was the first for West Brom since April began.
Hull City’s four-game unbeaten sequence and three-game winning sequence all came crashing following a 1-0 loss against Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium. The defeat is a major blow to hopes of finishing the play-offs.
The previous meeting between Hull and West Brom produced a 1-0 win for the Tigers at the KCOM Stadium. Hull, though, have a very poor record at the Hawthorns, where they lost 3-1 in the recent visit. Our betting tips and predictions would go with a victory for West Brom.

West Brom were quite imperious in the recent win over Preston and they have a great opportunity to repeat the same in the upcoming game against Hull. Hull City’s last victory at the Hawthorns was in 2008 when both teams were in the Premier League. In recent times, West Brom have been able to pick up three successive wins over Hull City. There is also a strong need for West Brom to maintain momentum with the play-offs fast approaching. Meanwhile, Hull City need to get three points in order to retain any hope of promotion, but away form continues to remain as their Achilles heel. Our preview would pick a victory for West Brom.

Correct Score odds
The four-goal haul against Preston is not a surprise from West Brom, who have excelled at home this season. A remarkable 48 out of the 81 goals scored by the Baggies have been at home, while Hull have had a major percentage of their goals at the KCOM Stadium. Hull struggled to convert at the Riverside Stadium during the weekend, but they can grab at least a goal. Our correct score prediction would opt for a West Brom 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been over 2.5 goals in the past three games at the Hawthorns, where goals have been flowing largely due to West Brom’s effervescence. This combined with Hull City’s ability to capture away goals can result in over 2.5 goals, according to our total goals prediction.

First Goalscorer odds
Dwight Gayle returned to form with a hat-trick against Preston. The striker also moved level on goals with Jay Rodriguez, who has been leading West Brom’s challenge for promotion so far with 21 league goals. Gayle has now scored five goals in his last four matches and it is difficult to look past the 28-year-old on this kind of form. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Dwight Gayle.
