      Tip Reasoning

      Ipswich claimed their first home win of the season last weekend, but will that form continue? They meet a Sheffield United side who have Premier League ambitions, but the visitors aren’t exactly living up to them. They sit fourth in the table, but they fell off the pace of the top two after a significant defeat last time out. Can they make up for that loss with three points in this visit to Portman Road?

      Ipswich are pushing for another victory, with Paul Lambert seeing things start to turn around. However, they edged out a Wigan side who are in terrible form of late. The Tractor Boys have just two wins all season, which has left them rooted to the bottom of the Championship table. After guiding Stoke to relegation last season, will Lambert bring the same fate on Ipswich?

      The visitors are coming off a 2-1 defeat by West Brom last time out, which saw them slip down the table. They lost out to a promotion rival, which was a blow to Chris Wilder’s side. However, they still sit in the play-offs, and they have an away trip to boost their form this weekend. The Blades have enjoyed most of their trips so far this term, which has seen them priced up as favourites for Saturday’s clash.

      The away side have picked up the majority of their points on the road this season, with six victories in their 11 away trips. That’s enough to leave them third in terms of away results in the Championship, sitting narrowly behind the top two. The Blades have won back to back away matches, scoring five goals across those two wins, form they’re expected to continue here.

      The hosts have one of the worst home records in the league, while they’ve lost over half of their games so far this season. They’ve also faced six of the current top seven, losing five of those matches. Meanwhile, Sheffield United have visited the five sides directly ahead of Ipswich, picking up 13 points from a possible 15. They seem set for an away win this week, so we’re going with a win for Wilder’s men, denting what little momentum the Tractor Boys have built up. We see value in the away win here, while we’re backing a 2-0 victory for the visitors, given that 55% of matches at Portman Road this term have finished with exactly two goals scored.
