Hull City participate in the Premier League, the top tier of English soccer, although they have spent the majority of their 112-year history in the lower leagues. At the end of the 2007-08 season, Hull were promoted to the top flight for the first time in the history, then went on to finish 17th before being relegated to the Championship the following season. Three seasons later, Hull was promoted to the Premier League in time for the 2013-14 season, but were relegated again two season later, before gaining promotion once again at the end of the 2015-16 campaign via the playoffs.
Hull City is owned by Assem Allam, who is also the chairman, and to say he is unliked by Hull supporters is the understatement of the century.
Allam has twice failed to have Hull City’s name changed to Hull Tigers, has implemented a membership scheme to extract more money from fans, and has failed to invest in any notable players in time for the new Premier League season.
Although nothing has become public in the British press, something is serious wrong behind the scenes at Hull City. Manager Steve Bruce resigned with only a few weeks until the new season began, and Mo Diame decided to drop down a division rather than play for Hull in the Premier League.
The lack of new talent coming into the club, and the fact, at time of writing, no permanent successor to Bruce has been named, suggests a long, difficult season for “The Tigers,” one that it will be a massive achievement to not finish bottom of the league.

How To Win Betting On Hull
With Hull being in the Championship last season, it is difficult to gauge how their form there will translate into the Premier League, but their statistics should give you some indication of what to expect.
Hull City were the second best home team in the Championship in 2015-16, losing only once with a 15-1-7 record. They had the best attack at home, the second best defense, and the KCOM Stadium was a fortress.
Away from home, they had the ninth best record with 9-10-4, the 16th best attack but fourth best defense.
In total, Hull City games produced 104 goals in 46 games, the 18th from 24 teams, with 30 of those games finishing under 2.5 goals.
Hull need to continue their good form at home, where they are unbeaten in 14 games, and lost failed to score eight games ago (they won 2-0 nine times), and improve their away record but we expect them to be even tighter away from home as they will play for a draw most games.
Long odds of +1600 are available on Hull finishing in the top 10, but they may as well be +1600000 because it will not happen. If you are to bet on Hull, invest in the -150 on them being relegated and the +225 on them being the bottom side at the end of the season.
