Hull looking to cruise past Crewe

On Saturday, Hull City welcome Crewe Alexandra to the KCOM stadium in search of back to back victories in league 1.  Hull City find themselves at a backable price of 19/20 to maintain their 100 percent record since being relegated to the third tier of English football. The start of the 2020/2021 season could not have gone better for Hull as they secured an impressive 2-0 victory at Gillingham, followed up by dumping local rivals, Leeds United, out of the Carabao Cup on penalties. 

Hull City squad contain plenty of league 1 experience to help them navigate the challenge of gaining promotion in May. Former Sunderland captain, George Honeyman, is a strong player at this level and will play a key role in Hull’s midfield this season. Scoring goals should not be an issue for Hull, with their strike force containing Tom Evans and Matty Wilks, who scored a combined league total of 35 goals in their last stint in League 1. Under-pressure manager, Grant McCann, will be expecting a home victory to prove that he is the right man to lead Hull City back to the Championship.

Crewe Alexandra started the season with a home defeat to Charlton Athletic. Crewe’s manager, David Artell, mentioned his concern about being punished by better quality teams reflecting the step up from league 2 to league 1.

Hull’s fire power will be enough to punish any mistakes which Crewe makes with their possession-based approach. Backing Hull at odds of 19/20 is a welcomed start of season bonus as they would be half the price if these two clubs met in a months’ time.

After 6 months of relentlessly backing and profiting from Hull’s nightmare year, it is time to reverse the trend and back them to get the 3 points on Saturday afternoon.

Hull to win 19/20 (Sky Bet, Bet 365) 2 point win.
