The KC Stadium is the scene for tonight's Hull-a-Bull-oo

Hull FC meet the Bradford Bulls in the final Friday night live Super League game of the regular season in a game that should be a cracker.

Initially it may seem like an odd choice of match to be shown by the people at Sky Sports. Hull having nothing to play for after a pretty dire, inconsistent season and in-form Bradford will make the play-offs with a win, unless the Catalans Dragons get a point at St Helens. So that's a simple enough pick - Bradford away win - and the odds of 2/5 about them to win in 80 minutes would agree.

But it may not quite be a foregone conclusion and it will certainly be worth watching and betting In-Play on our range of markets.

Bradford are looking for the fifth Super League win in a row. That would be six wins in seven league games - considering they only managed to scrape together six victories in the previous 20 games of the season, it's a fair conclude that Steve McNamara has got his team firing on all cylinders just in time for the climax of the season.

That said, Hull are only three points behind the Bulls in the league. They may have only won three games since the start of June, against the two sides propping up the table and Harlequins who occupy the spot above them, but they will want to end the season with a decent show. Playing their last game in front of their loyal Old Faithful supporters they have to give them something to smile about before they endure their neighbours and rivals Hull KR playing a minimum of two play-off games.

Hull stalwarts Graeme Horne, Chris Thorman and Paul King will be making their final appearances for the club and players that have committed so much deserve a good send off. They are 11/8, 6/4 and 5/1 respectively to cross the whitewash on their swansong.

There will be tries aplenty tonight in Humberside/East Yorkshire (can anyone else keep up with the desultory name changed for the county?) so investment in the Anytime Try Scorer markets could prove profitable.

Bradford have scored nearly 40 points per game in their last four games and, bizarrely, conceded exactly 18 in each one. For the Bulls to register an 11-15 winning margin you can get odds of 11/2.

It could be closer than that though, with Hull FC chasing the Bulls all the way and are backable at 10/11 with a six-point headstart. Not so confident? There's 4/7 with the more "comfortable" ten-point start.
