Hull City v Sheffield United Betting Predictions and Match Preview
Hull City host Sheffield United in matchday 34 of the Championship on Friday 23rd February, 7:45pm at KCOM Stadium. The hosts currently sit in 21st place in the table having beaten Nottingham Forest 0-2 last time out, while the visitors are in 8th after their 2-1 win against Leeds United.
Relegation-threatened Hull have been draw-specialists on their own patch in recent times, finishing on level terms in four consecutive matches, including against high-flying Derby and Fulham, so our Kickoff predictive algorithm rates the chances of another draw at 28% against a Sheffield United side who have ended all-square twice in four Championship trips of late.
Last Season's Score
The Blades were 1-0 winners on their last visit to the KCOM Stadium all the way back in October 2010, with Mark Yeates the man on target, and the chances of that result being repeated here are rated at 10%.

Team News For Hull City
Having been beaten at Middlesbrough only three days before this match, Nigel Adkins is likely to freshen up his side, possibly handing Kamil Grosicki a first start since Boxing Day.
Team News For Sheffield United
Chris Wilder has made only one change to his starting XI across the last two Championship fixtures, so he may be tempted to field the same team that beat QPR during the week.
First Goal Scorer Betting Predictions
Between them, Leon Clarke (14% chance) and Billy Sharp (14% chance) have netted 25 Championship goals this season, so it is hard to look too far beyond either member of this attacking duo in the first scorer market.
