Sunderland have been finding the wins hard to come by in League One recently, but they did pick one up on the weekend.

Will the Black Cats be able to build on that now as they return to the Stadium of Light on Tuesday night.

They play host to AFC Wimbledon who have just seen their form start to slide away, having lost three of their last four.

Sunderland Preview – Will Sunderland take maximum points?

Sunderland took a 4-0 away win at Lincoln on the weekend, snapping a run of five games without a victory in the league.

On home soil they have taken a W3 D2 L3 record and they have failed to win any of their last three on Wearside.

So they will be feeling that bit of pressure having lost two for their last three league home games.

Sunderland are the 8/15 odds-on favourites to come up with three points in this fixture* (odds taken 20:47 GMT Monday, 14th December).

It has been an average of a goal per game from them at the Stadium Of LIght this season.

Not the greatest, but they have been very good in defence for most of the season, which should help them through.

Only 38% of Sunderland’s home games this season have made it over 2.5 goals.

Under 2.5 goals for a football betting option on Tuesday is at 17/20* (odds taken 20:47 GMT Monday, 14th December).

The Black Cats have taken a clean sheet in a quarter of their home games for the campaign.

Our betting prediction:
Sunderland to win by a 1 goal margin

Bet at Betfair

(odds taken 20:47 GMT Monday, 14th December)


Sunderland took a 3-1 home win the last time that they hosted AFC WImbledon, which means that they have won all three previous meetings.

Just once this eason at home have Sunderland been leading at the half time break, so the HT Draw should come into play here at 13/10* (odds taken 20:47 GMT Monday, 14th December).

Sunderland have opened the scoring in 11 of their 16 league games (home and away) played this season.

They have the joint-best overall defensive record for League One at the moment, but they could really use a boost of home form to get their promotion push back in gear.


AFC Wimbledon Preview – Can Wimbledon stop their slide?

With three defeats in their last four games and a flood of goals going against them, AFC Wimbledon have hit a tough spot.

It has been back to back league defeats for them and they have conceded at a total of 9 goals in those two losses.

They have also lost their last two away games against Gillingham and Charlton, leaving them with a W3 D3 L3 road record this season.

In the match outright football betting market, the visitors are 11/2 to collect the match victory* (odds taken 20:47 GMT Monday, 14th December).

They are struggling at the back a little bit because Wimbledon have only managed the one clean sheet in their last seven league games.

That having been said they have taken a clean sheet in a third of their road games for the campaign.

Interestingly all five of the league wins that AFC Wimbledon have recorded this season have been by a one goal margin only.

If they were to spring a surprise on Tuesday and get their first ever win over Sunderland, it’s hard to imagine it would be a bigger margin than that.

AFC Wimbledon have been level at the break in five of their nine road games (W3 L1) so again we think value is in there in a HT draw as mentioned above.

Going forward AFC Wimbledon are not doing badly at the moment as they have scored in each of their last nine fixtures.

Of their 10 away goals scored for the campaign, 80% of them have come in the first half of matches.

They have produced the first goal in two thirds of their away games which is a surprisingly strong return.

Will they have enough to trouble the Black Cats?


Sunderland vs AFC Wimbledon Betting Advice

With some recent major defensive lapses by AFC Wimbledon, we have to side with the home win cropping up in this one on Tuesday night.

We think that the Sunderland 1-goal winning margin is the best option here for some extended odds at 11/4* (odds taken 20:47 GMT Monday, 14th December).

The Black Cats haven’t been that prolific this season and their opponents have been scoring frequently.


Key Facts – Sunderland vs AFC Wimbledon Betting Tip

  • Sunderland have won all three previous meetings
  • Sunderland are winless in three at home
  • AFC Wimbledon have lost three of their last four league egames


So we see the narrow win for Sunderland happening.

While they have been struggling at home, the overall slip of current form by Wimbledon is what tips it.

AFC Wimbldon have suffered back to back heavy losses and just look that little bit more fragile.

We expect a close contest but for the three points to go to the home side.
