Sunderland vs Hull City: Top free betting tips
Our Sunderland vs Hull City predictions are below. We are predicting this match between two playoff hopefuls in the Championship to be closely fought between two delicious sides.
Sunderland are in rocky form and have won just two of their previous seven matches, losing four of those, one of which came in a 3-0 FA Cup defeat to rivals Newcastle United. Michael Beale's new team are yet to gel under his management, time will tell as to whether the appointment of Beale was the right decision. Hull City have spent the entire season in and around the playoff places with just one win in their previous six matches, Is Liam Rosenoir's team fading away?
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
For our first Sunderland vs Hull City prediction we have dipped into the goal markets and have gone with 2.5 goals or more to be scored. Sunderland, when on form, has an excellent attack but has been, at times, suspect defensively, which is quite similar to Hull, although the side based in East Yorkshire have been slightly better defensively this season.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Sunderland has failed to score just once in their previous five matches and has kept two clean sheets in that time, including a clean sheet against opponents for this match, just a few short weeks ago. Hull have bolstered their attack with the signing of Fabio Carvalho who, should he hit the floor running, will provide plenty of goals and assists for Liam Rosenoir's side.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Sunderland
Sunderland is unbeaten against Hull in their previous twelve matches during normal time, Hull's last win came in 2014 but since then, Sunderland has won five times with a few draws in there, including a very entertaining 4-4 draw towards the end of last season.
