Hull City host Manchester United on the final day of Premier League betting, in a game that has implications on both side of the table. Here's our breakdown, complete with soccer odds and picks.

<p style="text-align:center"><iframe allowfullscreen frameborder="0" height="330" src="" width="560"></iframe></p> <p><strong>Hull City Must Win</strong><br /> Hull City need a win over Manchester United if they hope to stand a chance of surviving in the Premier League for another season. As it is, they are in the relegation quagmire, behind an 8-10-19 mark and 34 points. They are two points adrift of Newcastle United (36 points) and four points behind Aston Villa in 16th place.</p> <p>To say the <a href="" target="_blank" title="Soccer Betting Odds Board">soccer odds</a> are stacked against the Tigers is an understatement. They are priced at +220 soccer odds to win outright at the expense of Manchester United. Heck, even the draw is a far flung +275 soccer pick.</p> <p>Going against the Tigers is several key facts, beginning with their poor form going into this game. They are riding a three-game losing streak, which includes defeats to Arsenal, Burnley and Tottenham all while being outscored 7-1 combined. The lone goal came against Arsenal at KC Stadium three weeks ago. Since then they have not scored once and conceded three goals.</p> <p>More importantly, Hull City have lost all seven previous encounters with Man United, a run of form that includes conceding 21 goals. That alone makes a bet on Manchester United at +125 <a href="" target="_blank" title="Premier League Live Soccer Odds Board">Premier League soccer odds</a> a tempting one.</p> <p>But if that isn't enough to sway soccer bettors, here's another nifty stat to consider: Hull City have never won a top-flight game in May, going 0-3-9 in their Premier League stints. Crikey! That's hardly encouraging, is it?</p> <p>Is Premier League survival going to be the incentive that cracks this horrendous run of form down the stretch? Against another team, maybe. Against the Red Devils, it's a long shot soccer pick.<br />  </p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Manchester United The Value Soccer Pick</strong><br /> Manchester United are fourth in the Premier League table behind a 20-9-8 mark and 69 points. They are just three points behind Arsenal in the table and a cushy seven points clear of Liverpool in fifth place. <a href="" target="_blank" title="Futures Picks for Major European Soccer Tournaments &amp; Leagues">Champions League is most surely on the horizon</a> for next season for Louis Van Gaal and his lads.</p> <p>Considering that the Red Devils have averaged three goals against Hull City in their meetings, the Over 2.5 at -125 appears to be a solid choice. In fact, that's exactly the score of their last meeting, a 3-0 win at the Old Trafford in November. You can back the same score at +2200 at Bet365.</p> <p>Man United come into this game behind a two-game undefeated streak that includes a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace and a 1-1 draw with Arsenal.  In their last five games, however, the Red Devils are just 1-1-3. Losses to <a href="" target="_blank" title="Free Soccer Odds &amp; Pick for Premier League's Highest Scoring Team">Chelsea, Everton and West Bromwich.</a><br />  </p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Soccer Betting Verdict</strong><br /> Hull City need the result more than Man United does, but it's going to be a tough ask to clinch it at the expense of Wayne Rooney and Company. Knowing that the Tigers have an abominable record in the month of May, how can one make a case for Hull City to win this game? Tempting though the soccer odds are and the notion of a heroic fight to secure Premier League survival.</p> <p>The sound option here is to back Man United to finish their season on a winning note at KC Stadium, a soccer pick that is well priced at +125 soccer odds. Given the 3-goal average that the Red Devils have enjoyed against the Tigers, we also recommend the Over 2.5 at -125 and, also, the 3-0 score at +22000, but don't go betting the farm on that last  <a href="" target="_blank" title="More Soccer Predictions &amp; Free Picks Here">soccer pick</a>.</p> <p><strong>Soccer Picks: </strong>Manchester United +125 to win and Over 2.5 at -125<br /> <strong>Bonus Soccer Pick</strong> 3-0 score at +2200 <a href=";book=in-article-bet365" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play &amp; Win at Bet365">at Bet365</a></p> <p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":299915, "sportsbooksIds":[43], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p>
