This is the big game of League One on Easter Monday as second-placed Peterborough play host to third-placed Sunderland.

Peterborough have a two-point advantage over Sunderland but have played a game more.

So their automatic promotion hopes would take a massive boost if they were to collect three points from this game.

But Sunderland arrive in form and this looks like being a cracker.

Peterborough Preview – Can the Posh make it three in a row?

This is a high-pressure game for Peterborough, but they have done a tremendous job on home turf this season.

Their home record stands at W14 D2 L2.

In their last home fixture, Peterborough hammered Accrington 7-0, making it back to back home successes for them.

In the match outright for League One betting, the win for Peterborough is at 9/5* (odds recorded 023:41 GMT, April 4th 2021).

Will they be able to take these important three points?

The two home losses that they have suffered this season were against the current top-six sides (Hull and Blackpool).

But they have the goalscoring output to pose a big threat.

It has been an average of 2.4 goals per home game for Peterborough.

They have also conceded at under a goal per game at home.

The Posh may have a bit of revenge in mind as well after losing 1-0 at Sunderland earlier in this campaign.

This does have the look of being a high-scoring affair and over 2.5 goals is at 5/4* (odds recorded 023:41 GMT, April 4th 2021).

Our betting prediction:

Bet at Bet365

(odds recorded 023:41 GMT, April 4th 2021)


72% of Peterborough’s home games this season have made it over 2.5 goals. That’s despite them having taken a clean sheet in 44% of home fixtures.

Of their 14 home wins, eight of them have been by a margin of at least two goals this season.

The Posh have found the back of the net in each of their last seven home games. They have been superb in killing off games.

In the last 15 minutes of their home games this season, Peterborough have scored 12 and conceded 1.

As things stand Peterborough boast the best home record in League One (by a long way) and the best offence as well.


Sunderland Preview – Can Sunderland earn a big three points?

Sunderland will be in the driving seat for an automatic promotion spot if they get three points on Monday.

The Black Cats are in red hot form as well, having posted a W6 D1 record in their last seven league games.

In their last eleven League One fixtures, Sunderland have won all but two (D2) in a stunning run of form.

Sunderland have taken a clean sheet in five of their last seven fixtures home and away.

It is currently a three-match winning streak on the road that they are on, and they are undefeated in five road fixtures.

They have won both away games played against other top-five this season, including a recent one at Portsmouth.

In the match outright for this fixture, Sunderland are 17/10* (odds recorded 023:41 GMT, April 4th 2021).

This would be a fantastic time for them to keep this hot streak of form going.

In defence, Sunderland have conceded an average of 0.5 goals per away game, taking a clean sheet in 67% of road games.

That’s tremendous, but they are facing a free-scoring Peterborough here.

So it could be worth learning towards the Both teams To Score option at 10/11 for the fixture* (odds recorded 023:41 GMT, April 4th 2021).

These are two very good sides and there is a lot at stake on Monday in this fixture.

Of the ten away wins that Sunderland have banked in this campaign, all but two have been by a 2-goal margin.

The Black Cats have also been leading at the halftime break in half of their 18 away games.

Home and away combined, Sunderland have scored in their last 19 league fixtures, in each of their last nine on the road.

They are likely to give as good as they get on Monday.

But none of the last five meetings have produced a win for the away side on the day.


Peterborough vs Sunderland Betting Advice

Will home advantage just be enough to see the Posh to a vitally important win? This is such a tough game to call.

But we think that the scoring threat of Peterborough could take this at 9/5 in the match outright* (odds recorded 023:41 GMT, April 4th 2021).

The initiative really has to be taken by them in this fixture with so much at stake at home.


Key Facts – Peterborough vs Sunderland Betting Tip

  • Peterborough have won 14 of 18 home games this season
  • Peterborough lost 1-0 at Sunderland earlier this season
  • Sunderland are undefeated in eleven league fixtures (W9 D2)


Sunderland have really turned up the heat in the league recently and are driving towards promotion.

But this extended unbeaten streak surely has to be under threat in this fixture.

We think they make a very good fist of this but come up short.

Peterborough to win and both teams to score is our top pick at 5/1* (odds recorded 023:41 GMT, April 4th 2021)/
