Hull are winless in three and that’s why they go into the final weekend of the season with promotion still not confirmed, however, their fate remains in their own hands and as the Tigers host champions Cardiff in their last game, it could turn out to be party time for both sets of supporters at the KC Stadium.
BetVictor chalk Steve Bruce’s men up at 21/20 to secure their return to the Premier League with a victory and while the Bluebirds’ unbeaten run demonstrates that they haven’t simply stopped trying now that the title is theirs, it’s a big ask for them to be sufficiently motivated to deny Hull their promotion dream in this one.
It looks like the Tigers will need that maximum haul too because Watford are breathing down their necks and look like a home banker, at 4/9 with Paddy Power, as they tackle Leeds. The Whites, having recently appointed Brian McDermott, are already planning for next season and with influential attacker El Hadji Diouf suspended they look unlikely to improve on their dismal away record at Vicarage Road, especially as the Hornets have so much to play for.
Completing a Championship treble are Bolton, a 4/7 chance to get the better of Blackpool at the Reebok Stadium. The Trotters need a victory to ensure they finish in the play-off places while the Seasiders are now safe after they beat Derby last weekend.
Treble on Hull, Watford and Bolton – 15/4 (BetVictor)
