Hull City v Norwich – Steve Bruce men good value to register first win of the season

Last Sunday Hull City lost 2-0 to Chelsea. Norwich’s last match finished in a 2-2 draw with Everton. The Canaries’ goals were scored by Steven Whittaker after 51′ and Ricky van Wolfswinkel assisted by Steven Whittaker after 71′. The best odds on the game being drawn were 22/5, while the online bookies’ odds on that exact result were impressive, the best offer being 18/1.

It’s worth having a peek at the previous year’s statistics for the two teams:

Last year ended in promotion for Hull City: they finished 2nd in the Championship on 79 points. At the end of last season, their record stood at twenty-four victories, seven draws and fifteen defeats. They found the net 61 times and conceded 52 times along the way.

Norwich finished 11th with 44 points. Last season their record in the Premier League stood at ten victories, fourteen draws and as many defeats. There were 2.61 goals scored on average in each of their matches: 41 for and 58 against.

In the last three matches between these sides, the results were:
07 August 2012, Hull City-Norwich 0-0
19 March 2011, Hull City-Norwich 1-1
25 September 2010, Norwich-Hull City 0-2

Everything is wide open in Saturday’s match, both teams could achieve victory but Hull will see this match as a good opportunity to grab their first win of the season and with bet365 offering odds of 2.50 on that eventuality it may well be worth taking.
