Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have not scored in Hull City’s last seven Championship matches.
  • Both teams have not scored in seven of the last eight Championship matches featuring Birmingham City.
  • All three of Birmingham City’s away wins this season have been with clean sheets.

Toothless Tigers may be blanked by Blues

Hull City have the worst home record in the Championship and it’s unlikely it will improve much when Birmingham City visit the MKM Stadium on Saturday.

The Tigers’ faithful were calling for Grant McCann to be sacked prior to the 2-0 win over Barnsley that halted Hull’s run of five straight defeats, and some probably still are.

They failed to really land a glove on Coventry in their last home fixture – a 1-0 defeat in which neither side could manage an xG figure of greater than 0.7. McCann’s men have failed to register in three of their last four league games with ‘both teams to score – no’ now having landed in their last seven contests.

Bowyer’s boys set up to be tight at the back

The same pattern is emerging for Birmingham City games with seven of their last eight seeing at least one of the teams draw a blank. Lee Bowyer’s side have kept clean sheets in their last two and can probably be trusted to shut out Hull City as well this weekend.

All three of the Blues’ away wins this season have been with clean sheets, illustrating how Bowyer sets up his team to be tight on their travels. Therefore, we believe there could be a general lack of goalmouth opportunities in this one with maybe only one goal separating the sides at the final whistle.

But we can see Birmingham’s away form improving while Hull City’s home discomforts continue and that leads us to conclude a 1-0 away win is the preferred pick in correct score betting.
