Hull City vs Derby County Prediction

Hull City are with one foot in the Championship play-offs final. The Tigers outclassed Derby County (3-0) in the first leg, but they can’t afford any complacency in Tuesday’s clash against the Rams. Hull City are likely to adopt a cautious approach in the return leg and, taking everything into account, under 2.5 goals bet appears on the cards. Derby County face an uphill task in the return leg and they are unlikely to make a miracle at Kingston Communications Stadium.

Betting Tip: Under 2.5 goals

Odds: 1.65 (7/11) @Betfair
