‘Pool 11/8 To Be Mauled By Tigers

Live on Skysports 1: Fri 19.45: Hull start the new Championship season by welcoming Blackpool and the Tigers are good at 11/8 (Boylesports).

Hull get their new Championship season underway in the televised kick-off at home to relegated Blackpool tonight, where Boylesports make them their 11/8 favourites to start with three points.

A bright start may also force Paddy Power to reconsider their 25/1 quote about City landing the title, although some punters may opt for a safer 13/2 via Totesport for promotion. Additionally, post a respectful 11/4 for Nigel Pearson’s men to finish in the top six next May.

The Tigers need to hit the ground running first, though, and it will be interesting to see if Blackpool are nursing a relegation hangover, as their recent pre-season suggests vulnerability. As in the top flight last term, the Seasiders have continued leaking goals this summer, adding appeal to Stan James’ 5/6 about Hull catching them out by scoring first, with Betfred 6/1 for the hosts to net their first goal of the season during the opening 10 minutes.

An early goal for the hosts may also lead to them going into the interval ahead at Ladbrokes’ 15/8, with a 1-0 half-time lead in the home side’s favour 7/2 with Paddy Power. Incidentally, Matty Fryatt struck in Hull’s final friendly and should not be overlooked as the man to open proceedings courtesy of Skybet’s 11/2.

Pearson’s men will need to step up on last season’s home form this time around, but the manner in which they have banged in the goals pre-season suggests brighter fireworks at the KC Stadium. Considering also, Blackpool’s fragile defence, a case can be made for 2.5 goals or more tonight at Sportingbet’s 10/11, with Partybets offering 5/2 about a home win combined with 2.5 goals or more.

While three points would be a perfect start, a draw at Betdaq’s 3.40 (12/5) is no disaster either, and may also lead to both sides scoring at bet365’s 8/11.
