Hull City v Tottenham Hotspur Betting Tips and Odds

In our Hull City v Tottenham Hotspur betting preview we look at the best possible betting tips between the two sides.

Overview

On Sunday afternoon in the penultimate weekend of the Premier League we see Mauricio Pochettino take his Tottenham Hotspur side on the trip up to the KC Stadium to face Marco Silva’s Hull City. These two met in the reverse fixture back in December when the Tigers made the long journey down to White Hart Lane. The hosts were dominant from the off and took an early lead through Denmark international Christian Eriksen. After just fourteen minutes, some good work down the left from Danny Rose saw him lay the ball on the plate for Eriksen to finish. Just after the hour mark their lead was doubled and the win secured, curtesy of the Danish midfielder yet again. This time it was some smart down the other flank by opposite full-back Kyle Walker who again slotted it across to leave Eriksen for a simple finish. The win was rounded off ten minutes later when Spurs got their third of the evening. Eriksen was desperately unlucky not to claim the match ball after seeing a superb free-kick tipped on to the post by Hull goalkeeper David Marshall, allowing Victor Wanyama to mop up the rebound from a couple of yards out.

This man stole the show

Will Silva stay at the KC?

The home side Hull City head into the visit of Tottenham Hotspur just wanting to get it over with so they can see the end of what’s been a struggle of a season. It’s been tough for the Tigers who looked certainties go to down before the arrival of Marco Silva. The Portuguese gaffer did a sterling job and very nearly saw them safe. It was their form at the KC Stadium which got them so close, he took them on an unbeaten run of nine matches there. Winning eight of those nine. However their away form was so poor, that even that home run couldn’t keep them afloat. They collected two points from their last seventeen Premier League fixtures which just simply isn’t good enough. They will be desperate to keep hold of him and also keep hold of their key players in order to make an immediate return to the top flight.

On Sunday afternoon they travelled to Selhurst Park to face Sam Allardyce’s Crystal Palace. The tigers needed a win to keep their survival hopes alive. Those hopes were seriously dented after just three minutes when Italy defender Andrea Ranocchia missed a simple clearance, allowing Wilfried Zaha to open the scoring. Christian Benteke’s header doubled Palace’s lead while late goals from Luka Milivojevic, from the penalty spot, and substitute Patrick van Aanholt, completed Hull’s misery.

They really need to keep this man

A very positive season

The away side Tottenham Hotspur go into the trip to Hull City just looking to finish what has been a wonderful season on a high with yet another win. This has been their greatest season for a very long time, they are just seriously unlucky that Antonio Conte’s Chelsea have just been that step above everyone. It would’ve been interesting to see Spurs win at West Ham the other week, just to keep the title race going that bit longer but it wasn’t meant to be. One thing Spurs have in their favour is that they’ve got a relatively young manager and a pretty young but extremely talented squad. It’s vital that they keep hold of this squad and go again next year. If they just go and sell their best players in the summer it’ll be one step forward and two steps back. Invest wisely in the transfer window and they will have a very good chance next year. The only thing which might stop them is their move to Wembley Stadium for the season.

On Thursday evening they travelled to the King Power Stadium to face Craig Shakespeare’s Leicester City. It was the sort of dominant performance which has typified Spurs’ season. Though Chelsea ended their Premier League title hopes last week, there was no let-up from Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who won for the 25th time in the league this season. Harry Kane was yet again the pick of the bunch, he scored four times in the 6-1 thumping of the Foxes. Moving his goal tally to 26 for the season, two clear of Romelu Lukaku. Son Heung-min scored the other two for Spurs while Ben Chilwell got the hosts’ consolation.
