Newcastle have toiled of late, losing seven of their last nine of all competitions but inactive last weekend having been eliminated from the FA Cup, the Magpies have had a couple of weeks to regroup as they seek to turn the corner.
John Carver’s men look to get back to winning ways at Hull, themselves struggling for form having lost six out of their previous eight and although the Tigers get the nod from bookies, Boyles installing them as 17/10 favourites (the Magpies are 2/1 with BetVictor), it could be that the two faltering sides simply cancel each other out.
That was the case in the reverse fixture at St James’s Park and punters can back another inconclusive affair at an alluring 9/4 with bet365. A repeat of the 2-2 scoreline from that September contest is a 20/1 shot (bet365) but the injury-hit hosts are finding goals hard to come by at present while the visitors don’t score many on the road so betway’s 15/2 about it finishing 0-0 is the value bet at the KC Stadium.
Hull v Newcastle to be 0-0 – 15/2 (betway)
