The betting tip for Monday night comes from the Championship clash between Burnley and Hull City. We have previously profited from the strong scoring trends in Burnley home fixtures, and the noises coming from the visiting manager, mean it is worth backing a low scoring encounter again.
Match: Burnley v Hull
Betting tip: Under 2.5
Best Odds: 1.85 with Ladbrokes
Kick Off: 19:45 11/03/2013 (GMT)
Burnley score a below average number of goals, particularly at home. Twelve of their seventeen games in front of their own fans have seen two goals or fewer (70%). So the odds-on price about this game finishing Unders is not a surprise. Hull meanwhile, had a fairly solid defence, up until three games ago that is, since when they have shipped a further ten goals. Manager Steve Bruce has therefore been prompted into declaring his side will be going “back to basics” defensively, which suggests a return to the form which saw the Tigers concede fractionally over one goal a game when on the road. Ladbrokes are a shade bigger than their rivals in the unders market, and in what looks a tight game, a low scoring affair seems likely.
