In the Barclays Premier League this weekend Hull City host Stoke City in the late Saturday kick-off. Here's the match preview and football betting tips.
Visitors Stoke will be looking to carry forward momentum from their stunning late victory over Chelsea last weekend into this Saturday's late encounter with Hull City at the KC Stadium.
The late strike from Oussama Assaidi which gave Stoke the surprise three points over title-challengers Chelsea left Potters players and coach – former Chelsea great Mark Hughes – elated and means they should arrive at the KC Stadium in a buoyant mood, hopeful that they can tame the would-be 'Tigers' and continue to push on up the table with another victory.
Indeed there could be some tension reverberating around the ground on Saturday after the Hull owner, Assem Allam, this week went ahead to the Premier League with the application to change the club name to Hull Tigers; that despite fans groups voicing their vehement opposition to this change. The late kick-off won't help in creating a positive atmosphere, allowing fans to build up their angst all day; whether any negative atmosphere amongst the home supporters affects the performance of their side, though, remains to be seen.
Heading into the game, Stoke look good for the win and at 14/1 with bet365, a 2-1 scorrect score betting tips in their favour seems a decent bet, while Peter Crouch is priced at a tempting 15/2 for a first goalscorer tip with Bet Victor.
Hull have been something of a mixed bag this season, but have by-and-large surprised. Their recent form reads lost three, drawn one, won two – one of which was in their crushing 3-1 home victory over Liverpool – and they sit in a very respectable 12th at present. Forward Yannick Sagbo looked Hull's main threat in their 1-1 draw away at Swansea on Monday night and, at 1435 with Bet365, the Frenchman is our tip for an anytime goalscorer.
