Oxford will swing back into action on Tuesday night looking for a lift following a defeat on the weekend.

That loss left them just clear of the relegation zone in League One by goal difference only.

So they are feeling some pressure.

Ipswich will be too having suffered three defeats in their last four as their promotion push has hit a speedbump.

Oxford Preview – Can Oxford take valuable points at home?

It has been a W2 L3 record that Oxford have taken on home soil in League One this season.

They were there on the weekend when they lost a 2-1 contest against the visiting Swindon.

That has left Oxford with back to back home defeats now.

Breaking down their away from a little further for football betting purposes, we see that they have faced five of the current top seven away from home.

Oxford’s return from that has been one point and one goal only. Each of the four losses in the sequence were by a 2-0 scoreline

Ipswich, for context, are sitting in sixth place.

Oxford are the favourites for football betting in this one at even money* (odds taken 21:22 GMT Sunday, 29th November).

Oxford have conceded at an average of 1.8 goals per home game and are yet to take a clean sheet there.

So there are clear problems there for them to work on.

Looking at things home and away combined, 7 of their 8 league defeats in this campaign have been by a two goal margin.

Our betting prediction:
Ipswich to win & BTTS
6/1

(odds taken 21:22 GMT Sunday, 29th November)

 

The last two meetings between Oxford and Ipswich at the Kassam stadium have ended in a draw.

That leaves Oxford winless in their last three on home turf against the Tractor Boys.

One notable thing we see from Oxford’s most recent efforts is that they have scored in all but one of their last five league games home and away.

So they are improving a little bit in that respect. But will it be enough to bring down Ipswich?

 

Ipswich Preview – Can the Tractor Boys secure three points?

Ipswich really started the season with a bang but they have just remained off the boil recently.

They suffered a loss at home against Chalronton the weekend, leaving them with back to back league defeats and three in their last four.

So now with their home form gone (losing their last two at Portman Road), their already poor away form comes into the spotlight more.

Ipswich have lost their last three away games leaving them with a League One record of W2 D1 L3 for the campaign.

A positive for them is in their three away games played against teams in the bottom half of the table, Ipswich have collected seven points.

So it’s been the stronger away opposition which they have struggled.

This looks like a good opportunity for them to potentially get back on track.

Ipswich are the 13/5 favourites for the match win* (odds taken 21:22 GMT Sunday, 29th November).

The two away wins that they have collected on their travels have been by a margin of at least two goals.

But they look as if they have had their confidence rocked.

Ipswich have scored two thirds of their away goals in the first half of fixtures this season, while they have conceded two thirds of their road games in the second period of games.

There has been no away clean sheet for the Tractor Boys in five games now.

The Both Teams To Score option at 4/5 does have some appeal for football betting* (odds taken 21:22 GMT Sunday, 29th November).

The Tractor Boys have been level at the break in their last two away games and is another reasonable option to consider.

 

Oxford vs Ipswich Betting Advice

We can’t get there for the home win for Oxford in this one at all.

They have dropped their last two against Crewe and Swindon who are both in the bottom half of the table.

They are just not keeping clean sheets and therefore we are going to back Ipswich to shake off their slump and get three points.

Yes, the Tractor Boys have been out of sorts a little bit, but they have handled themselves in away games against weaker opposition.

 

Key Facts – Oxford vs Ipswich Betting Tip

  • Oxford have dropped their last two league home games
  • Oxford are winless in three at home against Ipswich (D2 L1)
  • Ipswich have lost their last three away fixtures

 

So that is enough for us to get to the 13/5 outright odds on an Ipswich win* (odds taken 21:22 GMT Sunday, 29th November).

This is a good chance for them to end their losing streak out on their travels, so we are going that way for football betting.

For extended value in Ipswich to win & BTTS option is at 6/1* (odds taken 21:22 GMT Sunday, 29th November).
