Tip Reasoning

  • Ipswich have failed to beat any current top-half League One team at home this season (P4, D3, L1).
  • Sunderland have avoided defeat in four of their last six away trips in League One.
  • Sunderland have avoided defeat in the last five head-to-head meetings (Won 4, Drawn 1).

Sunderland should leave Suffolk with at least a point

Ipswich are in desperate need of a win in the wake of their midweek FA Cup exit, but Sunderland’s improved away form can deny them that at Portman Road on Saturday.

Town’s caretaker boss John McGreal made wholesale changes at Barrow on Wednesday night and saw his team bow out of the cup to the League Two strugglers.

Ipswich may well feel that prioritising the league is the best way to approach a congested fixture list, but it’s now five games without a win for inconsistent Town.

Sunderland’s away form has been holding them back from really stamping their authority on the promotion race, but Lee Johnson’s side have avoided defeat in four of their last six road trips.

Inconsistent Town still don’t scare top teams

And when you look at the teams that Ipswich have actually beaten at home this term you instantly see that they have so far had a pretty soft schedule, facing seven teams in the bottom half.  Three draws and a loss from their games against top calibre opponents suggests the Black Cats will be too much for them to overcome.

The visitors’ record in Suffolk also stands up to scrutiny with a win last January and a draw the season before, so we are recommending a strong bet on the double chance. Ipswich have scored in all but two of their home contests while Sunderland have bagged in five of their last six away games, so a 1-1 draw is forecast in correct score betting.
