Hull v Chelsea betting preview
Chelsea travel to face Hull on Saturday - a game televised on BTSport 1 from 12.45pm.
Jose Mourinho's side have won their last 4 games, so it's no surprise that bookies make them odds-on favourites to win at the KC Stadium. The best price available is 8/13 (William Hill), while Hull can be backed at 11/2 (Bet365) and the draw at 13/5 (Stan James).
However, Hull have a decent home record this season, with just two defeats (W5, D3), conceding just 6 goals in those 10 matches - no team has conceded fewer home goals in the Premier League this term.
Chelsea won the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge 2-0 earlier this season, but it's worth noting that the Blues haven't beaten a newly promoted team since the 2010/11 season and a bet on Hull in the 'draw no bet' market looks worthwhile at odds of 19/5 with 888sport.
Given that Chelsea have only conceded one goal in their last five games in all competitions and Hull have kept 6 clean sheets in 10 home league games, a low scoring encounter is also anticipated. You can back 'under 2.5 goals' at 4/5 with Sky Bet or Ladbrokes, but we would prefer to perm a few correct scores - a 1-0 Chelsea win can be backed at 6/1, a 1-0 home win at 16/1 and a 1-1 draw is 15/2 - all with Ladbrokes.
David Meyler has scored for Hull against both Liverpool and Manchester United at home this season and the Irish midfielder can be backed at a very tempting 12/1 with William Hill to score at any time in this game (as short as 6/1 elsewhere).
