Sunderland’s promotion push has stalled a little bit in League One as the Balck Cats have failed to win any of their last three.

They will likely fancy their chances of getting a success on the board on Tuesday night as they play host to the struggling Burton.

Burton collected three points on the weekend, but still have a way to go to claw their way out of relegation zone issues.

Sunderland Preview – Can Black Cats claim a welcome three points?

Sunderland have won only two of their last six league fixtures, leaving them with a W6 D5 L2 record for this campaign.

There has been no win in three from them and they have drawn their last two.

On the weekend they played out a 1-1 away draw at Fleetwood, which was actually a very good result against an in-form team.

In their last home game, Sunderland were toppled by Milton Keynes in a shock 1-2 result.

Going into this home game Sunderland are the 8/15 odds-on favourites for the victory* (odds taken 21:22 GMT Sunday, 29th November).

The home form of the Mackems so far has been W3 D1 L2 so they have not been as tight as they would have liked at the Stadium of Light.

But interestingly two of their three home wins have been against teams who are above them inside the top six currently.

So it feels like they have taken their eye off the ball a little bit against weaker visitors.

At home this season Sunderland have both scored 7 and conceded 7 goals with half of their fixtures going over 2.5 goals.

Our betting prediction:
Sunderland 1-goal winning margin

Bet at William Hill

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


Each of the three home wins that Sunderland have taken this term have been by a 1 goal margin.

For football betting, a Sunderland 1 goal margin is at 5/2* (odds taken 21:22 GMT Sunday, 29th November).

In their last three home games against Burton, Sunderland are D1 L2 and one of those losses was in last season’s corresponding fixture.

Overall, home and away, Sunderland have won only one of their previous five games against Burton.


Burton Preview – Can The Brewers build on their weekend success?

The Brewers snapped an 11 match winless streak of league form on the weekend.

They took a 4-2 home win over Charlton.

That leaves them with a W2 D1 L4 record this season and those are the only two wins that they have banked in League One this season.

Burton are on 10 points for the campaign, sitting third from bottom after last weekend’s round of action.

They do have the worst defensive record in the division at the moment.

They have let an average of exactly two goals per game go against them this season.

There has not been a clean sheet earned by the Brewers this term.

Three of their four road losses have been by a margin of exactly two goals.

In none of their league fixtures for this campaign has Burton been leading at the halftime break.

Of the goals that the Brewers have scored on their travels this season, five of the seven have been in the second half of matches.

Burton are the 5/1 underdogs for their trip to the Stadium Of Light on Tuesday* (odds taken 21:22 GMT Sunday, 29th November).

That’s a big underdog odds, to say the least.

Plymouth are the only side in the division who have a worse road record than that of the Brewers in this campaign.

Burton have the head to head from going against Sunderland and they badly need to extend that when they head to the north east in midweek.


Sunderland vs Burton Betting Advice

We are going to go with the Sunderland win at 8/15 because we don’t see the Brewers raising too much of an effort in this fixture.

That was a big win for them on home turf on the weekend, but this is still a difficult road game, even if Sunderland aren’t in top form.

We don’t think that Sunderland are going to run riot, however.


Key Facts – Sunderland vs Burton Betting Tip

  • Sunderland have won 1 of their previous 5 games against Burton
  • Sunderland are winless in three league games
  • Burton are winless away from home this season (D3 L4)


So a Sunderland to win by a 1 goal margin football betting options at 5/2* (odds taken 21:22 GMT Sunday, 29th November).

We have seen the Black Cats record some good home wins this season, such as their victory over Ipswich.

They should have the strength and quality on this quick turnaround to earn three points.
