How To Make Money Betting On Hull City
There were many reasons for Hull’s Premier League demise, but a few stand out more than others. The Tigers conceded goals in bunches and had the league’s worst defense by a country mile. They allowed 80 goals in 38 mathes, 10 more than Swansea, the second-worst defense.
Hull had the dubious record of worst road team in the league, which was compounded by once again conceding the most goals, 45. It’s hard to overcome those type of numbers, but Hull gave it a valiant attempt. They hired Marco Silva in an attempt to extricate the club from relegation danger. And the move almost worked. Hull played inspired soccer after the manager was hired, particularly at home.
Most of Hull’s favorable home results occurred during Silva’s tenure. Overall, Hull had the 13th best home record in the top flight. If it weren’t for their dismal away form, Hull would be readying themselves for another season in the Premier League. It wasn’t meant to be, though.
Silva, after Hull was relegated, resigned as Hull’s manager. Former Russian national coach, Leonid Slutsky, has been appointed as Hull’s manager in their attempt to reclaim Premier League status. Slutsky – a very unfortunate name – has the experience and pedigree to lead Hull back to the Promise Land but will it happen immediately?
They should at least make the playoffs so making a bet on that futures proposition is a sound decision. The Championship is grueling, demanding and only the strongest and most resilient will triumph. Hull will be in the mix for promotion but may just fall one hurdle shy of reaching their ultimate goal.
