Hull City v Brighton & Hove Albion latest odds, news and free bets

Hull City sit 8th in the Championship table, although the Tigers are just nine points behind 2nd placed Southampton with two games in hand and manager Nicky Barmby will be confident that his team can challenge for automatic promotion

Victory in this match would lift the home side into the play-off places and the bookies make them strong favourites to claim three points, with odds of 17/20 (Boylesports £40 free bet) about Hull claiming their 10th win of the season at the KC Stadium.

Perhaps an FA Cup exit at the hands of Crawley Town wasn’t the end of the world considering the players should be nice and fresh for this contest, although Brighton might be feeling a little down after conceding six goals at Anfield on Sunday.

Gus Poyet’s team scored an amazing three own goals against Liverpool although their league form is actually quite strong and they have not tasted a Championship defeat in 2012, with odds of 4/1 (Bet Victor bookmaker) on offer that the visitors claim victory.

It does seem a big price when you consider there is just a point between the two teams in the table and that Hull have been beaten five times at home this term. Two of their last three games have ended in a goalless draw and No Goalscorer is a 7/1 poke (bet365 free bets).
