Hull City vs Stoke City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides looking to bounce back from a defeat last time out. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Hull suffered their first league defeat of 2018 last weekend going down 3-0 away to Blackburn. They found themselves two down after 18 minutes and the free scoring Tigers looked toothless that day.

Stoke were the better side according to the expected goals data but still went down 2-0 at home to Preston. It means it is three defeats in four for the Potters as Nathan Jones struggles to find a winning formula.

The reverse fixture came on August 25th and it ended in a 2-0 victory to the Staffordshire side with a goal for James McClean and an own-goal in a game that also saw Evandro dismissed on the hour mark. It stretches the winless run in these head-to-heads to three for the Tigers.

Betting Tips and Predictions

If you knew that Jarrod Bowen would start then the hosts would be a great bet given how Hull have been excellent at the KC Stadium winning four straight in comfortable fashion. Bowen though is a key player and until I see team news I would look at other bets.

Three of the last four Stoke games have gone over 2.5 goals while the Tigers have netted 14 in their last four at their own place.  Even without Bowen over 2.5 goals looks possible while a small interest on over 3.5 also appeals.

Hull City Preview

It is two without a victory for Hull who have though taken 24 points from their last 11 fixtures. They sit 13th in the table however this is only six points off the team in sixth which is Derby.

At the KC Stadium, the Humberside have won each of their last four netting an impressive 14 times and conceding just two. Jarrod Bowen has bagged five goals in his last three appearances in front of his own fans.

Hull have seen each of their last five and nine of their last 11 games go over 2.5 goals when looking at Championship action. Around 58% of the goals they have scored have come after the break.

 

Hull City Team News

Jordy de Wijs (calf), Reece Burke (knee), Jarrod Bowen (knee), Jon Toral (groin) and Ondrej Mazuch (Achilles) are all doubts while Angus MacDonald (also calf) and James Weir (meniscus) are long-term absentees. Liam Ridgewell could come into the squad after his deadline day move.

Stoke City Preview

The Potters have lost three of their last four and won just one of their last six which oddly came against leaders Leeds. They are in 15th through just eight points off the play-offs while they should have no relegation worries as they sit 14 above the bottom three.

Away from the BET365 Stadium, the Staffordshire outfit are without a win in their last six but four of these have ended in a draw. Benik Afobe has netted three times from his last five on the road.

Stoke have seen both teams score in just two of their last seven through both came in their last three. Around 66% of the goals they have scored have come in the second-half with 42% in the final 30 minutes.

 

Stoke City Team News

Charlie Adam (calf) is a doubt while Ibrahim Afellay (knee) is a long-term absentee. Sam Vokes could come into the squad after a deadline day move which saw Peter Crouch go the other way.
