Sunderland vs Preston Predictions

Preston Draw No bet at 6/4 – ★★☆

Preston to win 1-0 at 8/1 – ★☆☆

  • Sunderland have failed to win three of their four home Championship games this season.
  • Preston have won two and drawn two of their four away league games of 2022-23.
  • North End have not conceded an away league goal as yet this term.

Lilywhites can blank anyone on the road 

Preston have a fully fit squad after the international break as they look to continue their unbeaten away league run at Sunderland on Saturday. Lilywhites boss Ryan Lowe has reported no fresh problems and will hope the break has done his forwards the power of good as they look to rediscover their shooting boots.

North End have comfortably the worst goals per shot ratio in the division at 0.02, almost six times worse than that of the Black cats, who have the third-best currently. Preston do have the best defensive record of the 24 Championship clubs and have taken eight points from a possible 12 on the road, so their odds of around 5/2 are appealing for this matchup with the division’s 18th best home side.

But, given Preston’s struggles in front of goal, a draw no bet approach to playing the visitors looks safer policy with around 6/4 available on Lowe’s low-scoring side.

Sunderland unappealing amid striker concerns 

Sunderland have failed to win three of their four home Championship games this season and the new manager bounce that may have contributed to their solitary Stadium of Light victory – a 3-0 win over Rotherham at the end of August – may now have subsided.

A 1-0 PNE win looks a good option for correct score backers, nonetheless, as Preston have already won two away games at Luton and Coventry by that score.

It’s not clear whether Sunderland head coach Tony Mowbray will have a fit striker to call upon, with Ellis Simms continuing his recovery from a foot problem and Ross Stewart out for six weeks
