Wolverhampton vs Hull City – Championship: The leaders host Hull City on a match counting towards the Championship’s 40th round
Nuno Espírito Santo’s team has fantastic numbers at home, when they play at their own stadium.
In terms of goals, they have 41 goals scored, which results on an average of 2.16 goals scored per match, with their defence only having conceded 16 goals, which means they have conceded an average of 0.84 goals per match.
They have kept a clean sheet in almost half of their matches, 47% to be exact, and they concede more goals on the 2nd half of matches,
where they are usually already in the lead, with the team winning at half-time on 12 of their matches at home.
In terms of goals before half-time, 9 of their matches had 2 or more goals by half-time.
With 20 goals scored before half-time and only 5 goals conceded, this team shows that they always start off well on matches. Despite the 2 sending-offs on the previous match, they will play to win, no matter which line-up they use in this match.
They will find a team that has a permeable defence, so I expect them to score some goals.
This Hull City team has been improving their form on this past couple of matches, having 4 wins, 3 losses and 1 draw recently. Away from home, they have 2 wins and 2 losses on their last 4 matches.
The team shows a permeable defence when they play away from home, not conceding goals in only 4 matches, with only 3 of their matches being 0-0 at half-time.
This time, their opponent will be the leaders that have great offensive ability and they will struggle to keep a clean sheet, so I see them having the will to score, because they know that if they sit back, they will end up conceding goals.
This Hull City scores most of its goals during the first-half when they play away from home, having scored 11 goals on the 1st half and only 5 on the 2nd half so far.
They have, however, conceded 14 goals during the 1st half and 16 during the 2nd half.
Wolverhampton vs Hull City – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With this Wolverhampton being in the lead at half-time in 50% of their matches, which means goals, Hull City scores more and concedes a lot during the first halves.
That means that the Over 1.5 Goals in the 1st half, with odds way above 2.00 is my choice for this match.
