Cheltenham Preview – Robins to deny Sunderland?

Cheltenham haven’t won since beating Gillingham away from home in November.

That’s a long eleven match winless streak from them (D7 L4).

Cheltenham have drawn five for their last six, however, so haven’t been a pushover.

It is a three-match sequence of draws that they have taken on home turf in league action.

Overall Cheltenham’s home form this season is W5 D6 L4.

In the match outright for Tuesday, Cheltenham are 12/5 underdogs* (odds recorded 20:02 GMT on 6th February 2022 at Bet365)

It’s not been a terrific output from them in front of goal, the Robins average of 1.1 goals per home game.

In their most recent match, they played out a 2-2 away draw at AFC Wimbledon.

That’s the only game that Cheltenham have scored more than one goal in, in their last eight (home and away).

Earlier this season Cheltenham fell to a heavy 5-0 loss against Sunderland.

They look to be in a place where they could deny the Black Cats a win this time around.

Our betting prediction:
1-1 Correct Score

Bet at Bet365

* (odds recorded 20:02 GMT on 6th February 2022 at Bet365)


Cheltenham have taken a clean sheet in just 20% of their home games this season.

Just a shade under half of them have gone above the 2.5 goal line.

But this may be a low-scoring affair as only one of Cheltenham’s last seven league fixtures have gone above 2.5 goals.

Under 2.5 goals is at a quote of 4/5* (odds recorded 20:02 GMT on 6th February 2022 at Bet365).

Cheltenham’s last four home games have gone under the goal line. So there is a trend there.


Sunderland Preview – Black Cats struggling again

Back to back losses for Sunderland has set their promotion ambitions back a little bit.

At least their chance of anatomic promotion.

They are still very much involved in the playoff picture in League One.

In their last two league games, they have been hammered 6-0 by Bolton and have lost at home to bottom side Doncaster.

So there are obviously some concerns there at the moment.

Sunderland are the 23/20 match favourites for Tuesday however* (odds recorded 20:02 GMT on 6th February 2022 at Bet365).

Their away record stands at W5 D5 L5 this season.

In that return, three of those five wins happened against the current bottom three.

So they have had their struggles in getting those away wins on the board.

As a positive though, they have gone unbeaten away from home against teams currently 14th or lower.

Tuesday’s opponents Cheltenham are 17th, so the Black Cats may be a reasonable shout to avoid defeat.

Sunderland’s massive crash at Bolton in their last away game is the only road loss that they have suffered in their last seven road games.

They have drawn four of those seven by a 1-1 scoreline.
