Hull City - Liverpool Betting Preview: In-form Reds can trouble Tigers

Brendan Rodgers' side are warm favourites to win at KC Stadium this weekend and our tipster is backing the free-scoring Reds to enjoy a comfortable victory
Liverpool were forced to settle for a point in last weekend’s Merseyside derby against Everton following a thrilling 3-3 draw at Goodison Park and Brendan Rodgers’ men will look to get back to winning ways when they take on Hull City at KC Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Reds have failed to win any of their last three Premier League matches on the road but are warm favourites here with Paddy Power offering odds of just 8/13 (1.62) for an away win this weekend.

Such a short price can be attributed to Steve Bruce’s side have won just one of their last seven matches in all competitions – a 1-0 victory over Sunderland at KC Stadium – and can be backed at a chunky 9/2 (5.50) quote with Paddy Power to shock Brendan Rodgers’ men. The draw is rated as a 3/1 (4.0) chance with the same firm.

Daniel Sturridge came off the bench to rescue a point for Liverpool at Goodison Park but Brendan Rodgers looks as though he may have to wait to restore the England striker’s prolific partnership with Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez this weekend.

Although the England international may be missing, there are still plenty of encouraging signs for the Reds.

Hull have kept just one clean sheet in their last six matches and, having slumped to a dismal 1-0 defeat against ten-man Crystal Palace last weekend, Steve Bruce’s side will surely enter the clash with the free-scoring opposition filled with trepidation.

Liverpool have managed to score at least three times in no fewer than five of their last seven matches and can be backed at a hugely tempting 11/5 (3.20) with Paddy Power to net more than two goals against the Tigers.

Brendan Rodgers’ men have scored 19 goals in their last seven games and it seems likely that they will have too much firepower for a shot-shy Hull City side that has managed just three goals in their last six Premier League encounters.

Therefore, there looks to be value in backing Liverpool (-1) at 13/8 (2.63) in Paddy Power’s handicap market this weekend and punters are encouraged to snap up that generous quote accordingly here.
