Bet of the Day: Goals in short supply for Derby County v Hull City
Championship heavyweights clash tonight
Two of the Championship’s promotion fancies go head-to-head at Pride Park this evening as Derby County host Hull City.
Friday night games in the Championship don’t tend to see many goals. In eight of the last 14 games to be held on a Friday evening at least one of the two competing teams has failed to find the back of the net.
When that’s broken down to just Derby County it makes for even more interesting reading. Eight of Derby’s last 10 Championship Friday night matches have finished with at least one team recording a nil scoreline.
Therefore it looks as though goals may well be in short supply tonight. It means Coral’s Bet of the Day is Both Teams to Score – No, at 10/11.
The Rams enjoying taking on the Tigers
It has already been established that Derby have a propensity for keeping clean sheets. And that record extends when they meet with Hull City.
Three of the last four clashes between the pair have seen the victor keep a clean sheet. And it’s tonight’s hosts that boast the superior record of the two.
Derby have won three of the last four, all to nil. As a result the 11/5 on offer for the Rams to win to nil makes appeal.
Back an early goal
The Championship is fast paced at the best of times. But these two teams take it to the next level.
Four of Hull’s five league fixtures so far this season have seen a goal scored within the first 15 minutes of play. Derby aren’t far behind with three of their five games also holding that record.
The two sides like to start fast. So it makes sense to back an early goal. Coral go 9/2 that someone finds the net between 11-20 minutes.
