Wolves
    Hull

      Tip Reasoning

      Both sides have made good starts to the season and started their Championship campaigns with opening day wins. Wolves won 2-1 at Blackburn while Hull were comfortable 2-0 victors against Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield in their first game back in the second tier.

      There was also progress for both clubs in the Capital One Cup in midweek too but not without a scare or two. Hull were taken to penalties at Accrington having twice lost their lead in extra time but ultimately won the shoot-out. Meanwhile Wolves scraped through 2-1 at home to Newport County.

      The Black Country side have lost Bakary Sako to Crystal Palace which is a big blow to the club but not an entirely unexpected one given the Ivorian winger who bagged 15 goals last season was out of contract this summer. However on a brighter note Benik Afobe has scored in both games so far this season to add to the 13 goals he scored in 20 starts after joining the club from Arsenal in January.

      Afobe could be a real handful for Championship defences this season and Wolves who narrowly missed out on the play-offs last term are likely to be in the mix again in their second season back at this level.

      Wolves are unbeaten in 9 games at Molineux and have won 7 of them so this will be a very tough game for Hull. Steve Bruce has so far managed to hold on to most of the squad that was relegated from the Premier League but it remains to be seen how some of his bigger names will cope with the physical nature of the Championship.

      The Molineux crowd will provide a cracking atmosphere for this one and we can see a Wolves side that enjoyed an excellent pre-season and have won their last four competitive games just edging it. Hull will be tough to beat in this league though so backing Wolves to win in the ‘draw no bet’ market adds a bit of security at 8/11 in case they come here with a defensive outlook and grab a point.

      If they are positive then there could be a few goals in the game and in the likes of Nikita Jelavic and Chuba Akpom, who has scored in both games this season, Hull might get on the scoresheet.

      Wolves are a force to be reckoned with especially at home though so going for a 2-1 Wolves win in the correct score market at 17/2 is worth a punt.
