Hull vs Aston Villa predictions and betting tips for the Championship fixture on Easter Saturday with an anytime goalscorer tip and match prediction included.
Both of these sides went into the International Break off the back of potentially damaging defeats. Hull’s recent momentum came to a crashing halt as they were beaten by Birmingham City St. Andrews whilst Villa’s second successive loss saw them lose vital momentum in the hunt for automatic promotion. Nigel Adkin’s side have been much more effective at home since he took over and they’ve only lost one of the last five at the Kcom. That defeat came against a Millwall side who appear to have transformed into away specialists. They’ve beaten Norwich and Sheffield United here and have picked up points against Leeds and Barnsley. Villa thrashed Wolves 4-1 and were being touted as outsiders for the title but all momentum was lost as they were defeated at the hands of QPR and Bolton. Steve Bruce’s side must find a way of picking themselves up from those losses. See our Hull vs Aston Villa betting tips and predictions in the article below:
Hull have been pretty effective at home and although they’ve only won six times here, there has definitely been improvement since Adkin’s arrival at the club. They were involved in the madcap 4-3 successive against Norwich and with Abel Hernandez back in the side, they can potentially hurt a wounded Villa side here. The first of our Hulls vs Aston Villa betting tips is Hull Win and is priced at 28/17 with 888Sport.
Hull were trying to keep it tight at home but they didn’t look too secure against Norwich last time out and there’s every chance they’ll concede here. Both Teams to Score? Yes is priced at 13/15 with 10 Bet and is the second of our Hull vs Aston Villa predictions.
The aforementioned Abel Hernandez is back from injury and he’s making up for lost time. If Hull had been able to keep the Uruguayan fit, they might be comfortably mid-table. He is also the penalty taker and is likely to take his chance. Abel Hernandez in the anytime goalscorer market is priced at 17/10 with Betfred and is the last of our Hull vs Aston Villa betting tips.
Despite Hull being the first of our betting tips, it’s quite surprisingly to see them being priced up as favourites for this clash at 28/17. Villa aren’t far behind at 17/10 and will be fancied by many. The draw can be backed at 11/5.
Our selection Abel Hernandez is the 5/1 favourite in the first goalscorer market and is closely followed by the in-form Lewis Grabban who is 51/10.
All these odds are from 888Sport
Moses Odubajo and Evandro are the two definite absentees for the hosts with Jon Toral and Michael Hector expected to be back in the starting XI.
Villa are without Jed Steer, Christopher Samba and long-term absentee Jonathon Kodjia. Neil Taylor is back from injury and could be drafted straight into the line-up for this fixture.
