Fulham Vs Hull City Predictions, Betting Tips & Match Preview
Hull made it here with a 2-0 win over seriously out of form Swansea, whilst Fulham knocked off Championships strugglers Cardiff. Fulham has gone two games
without a win now and one of the more dangerous looking Championship attacks is cooling off.
Hull are finding their form and despite a lengthy injury list and a tough game against United on Thursday, we still expect a fairly strong squad to be fielded in both games as Hull’s chances of silverware are zero in the Premier League, as we would have expected.
Hull have shown signs of improvement already under Marco Silva and have the opportunity to use this cup game for momentum in their fight for survival also. Hull currently occupy the relegation zone in the Premier League but have already navigated four cup ties away from home this season.
Despite being a lower league opposition, Fulham are 23/20 favourites with Bet365 to win this game. The draw can be backed at odds of 11/4 at the same outlet whilst visiting Hull are best odds 12/5 with Stan James.
The FA Cup and even the League Cup can be nothing more than a lottery at the best of times. We saw little to no shocks in the earlier stages, but Premier League teams fell by the wayside in numbers in the last round, and Fulham will fancy their chances here.
As much as Hull are on the up, you’re always in danger of just having one of those days where things don’t go your way as a Premier League side in this competition. Fulham have enough goals in them to outscore anyone, but they blow hot and cold. The Championship side are certainly more dangerous in front of goal, but it’s also where their defence lacks the most. This game is a coin toss. Bet on Over 2.5 goals at odds of 9/10 with Sky Bet.
The value here could be in a big score line. Hull will come here to attack, and Fulham will settle for an opening game. The Championship side can’t really defend, allowing 16 goals in their last 10 here. Equally, they’ve scored 22 in that time. Back a 2-2 draw at odds of 13/1 with William Hill.
Team selection could be a factor here, but Hull really doesn't have that many options. The likes of Markovic and Niasse could feature despite any midweek involvement as they adapt to the English game, so could be a safe option as an anytime scorer. Back Niasse at odds of 11/4 with Betway.
