Friday night football focuses on the Championship this week ahead of a busy weekend of fixtures and it’s a real cracker between two teams who need the points for very different reasons.
Seventh place Sheffield United are very much in touch with the play offs while further down, Hull City are in 21st and are only just ahead of the relegation places on goal difference. It will be a fascinating 90 minutes and it’s a game that holds potential value from a betting point of view, thanks to this new customer offer from Coral.

Blades to Win
Under the terms of the deal, enhanced odds of 28/1 are on the table if Sheffield United come away with the three points and as you’d expect, it’s a figure that compares strongly with the prices in the standard betting. Sheffield are the away side and they don’t actually start as favourites with the Blades listed at best odds of 181/100 with MarathonBet for the win.
The same bookmaker has the top price on Hull City of 17/10 while the draw completes things at a best of 12/5 with Unibet.
This promo therefore represents something of a punt but it comes with a generous price boost so, if you were looking to get behind Sheffield United and are new to Coral, here’s what you would need to do in order to take advantage.
As we mentioned above, this is an exclusive deal for new Coral account holders so if you have no dealings here at present, the first step is to sign up. You can head over via the link and complete a fast and easy registration process and you will be confirmed in around two minutes or less.
When you reach the cashier’s stage, there are two important points to remember. Firstly, Coral have set a minimum deposit of £5.00 so please fund at least this amount and remember to avoid Skrill, Neteller and PaySafe as these are specifically excluded and will render the deal null and void.
Follow those very simple but important steps and you will be ready to move to the next phase – making the bet.
Staking and Getting Paid Out
With those funds likely to clear straight away, stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on Sheffield United to beat Hull City when these teams meet on Friday February 23, 2018. The game kicks off at 19:45 and is covered live by Sky Sports in the UK but whether you watch it or not, all we need is for Sheffield United to come away with the three points.
In the event of a winning bet, payment is in two steps: Initially, a return will be paid in cash based on the standard market price as quoted by Ladbrokes at the time of kick off. This will appear in your account within minutes of the final whistle while the balance, up to that 28/1 price boost, will land as free bet tokens within 24 hours.
Those tokens come with an expiry date of 4 days and, if the bet fails and Sheffield United don’t win the game, you will receive a £5.00 free bet token as a consolation with that same 4 day limit.
Sheffield United edge this on form and although they have lost three of their last six games, one of those defeats came in the FA Cup against Premier League opposition while they also went down to Championship leaders Wolves.
Hull could also claim that their form table looks much worse after a 4-0 FA Cup defeat to Chelsea but over those last six games, Sheffield United just shade it. However, as we have said, this bet is by no means a certainty but 28/1 is unlikely to be beaten and for new Coral customers it could lead to seriously boosted profits.
