Hull got a decent point at Swansea on Monday night and will view the visit of Stoke as a good chance to get some more on the board.
A victory at the KC Stadium against the Potters (5/4 with Stan James) will see the hosts climb into the top half of the table, for 24 hours at least. A 1-0 home success is priced at 11/2 by Skybet while 2-0 is 9/1 with Bet365. The Tigers are 11/4 with the same bookie to be beating their visitors at both half-time and full-time and 5/1 with BetVictor to win it following a first-half stalemate.
Although Stoke will start this clash as outsiders (23/10 with Paddy Power), they go into it with confidence high following last week’s impressive win over Chelsea – a team they have traditionally done very poorly against.
A draw would probably be seen as a better result for Stoke than for Hull, but it would at least keep the momentum going for both teams. That scenario is priced at 11/5 by BetVictor while a final score of 1-1 is on offer at 11/2 with Bet365.
As far as the goal markets are concerned, Stan James is pricing the likelihood of both sides firing blanks at 6/1 and Betway is offering odds of 13/10 on there being at least three during the game. Punters who are more interested in the time of the first goal might like the 12/5 available at William Hill on the deadlock being broken within the opening quarter of an hour.
