Hull City 5/2 to beat Aston Villa in Saturday’s Championship clash
Market: Hull City
Odds: 5/2 @ Bet 365
With the chance to continue what has been a very impressive run of form, Hull will travel to Villa Park on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while Aston Villa might have enjoyed a bright start to life under Dean Smith, the Villans have drastically struggled entering the New Year. In their 27 games this season, they have won nine, drawn 11 and lost seven, scoring 49 and conceding 43 in return. Now sat outside of the top half of the table, no team lower than 15th hold a worse defensive record. As for their recent form, Villa have now managed to record just one win in their last seven matches across all competitions and have failed to win any of their last five home matches.
As for the visitors, although Hull might have struggled at the start of the season, the Tigers have transformed into arguably the Championship’s in-form side. In their 27 games this season, they have won 11, drawn six and won 10, scoring 39 and conceding 33 in return. With their run of form taking them up to the top half of the table, another win on Saturday could see them climb as high as seventh. As for their recent results, the visitors have now won their last six Championship outings and are also unbeaten in their last six league away matches.
