This should be the highlight match of the League One action on Tuesday night. In it, sixth-placed Sunderland will be looking to close the gap on Ipswich.

The Black Cats start this home game four points behind the Tractor Boys, who are sitting in second place in the table.

This should be a fantastic duel at the Stadium Of Light where there is extra pressure on Sunderland, especially after having dropped their last home game.

Sunderland Preview – Can Sunderland make the most of home advantage?

The Black Cats took a 2-0 away win at Gillingham on the weekend as they rediscovered their winning touch.

They had taken just one point from their two games just before that. That included a 3-1 home loss against Portsmouth.

That left Sunderland on a W2 D1 L1 home record this season in League One.

It has been an average of one goal per home game by Sunderland, the same rate at which they have conceded.

Just one of the four league games this season at the Stadium Of Light have managed to above 2.5 goals.

Under 2.5 goals for this tense clash on Tuesday is at 4/5* (odds taken 04:49 GMT, Sunday, 1st November).

Surprisingly Sundelrand have already been losing at the half time break at home twice this season.

Three of the four goals that they have shipped have come in the first half of games.

Across the course of the season though (home and away) Sunderland have opened the scoring in six of their nine fixtures.

Our betting prediction:
Sunderland 1 Goal Winning Margin

(odds taken 04:49 GMT, Sunday, 1st November)


Sunderland claimed a 1-0 home win over Ipswich last season. That is three wins in their last four at the Stadium of Light against them.

In none of the last four meetings on Wearside have both teams scored in the match. So there’s another trend for League One football betting.

Both Teams Not To Score is at 19/20* (odds taken 04:49 GMT, Sunday, 1st November).

This would be a big three home points for Sunderland if they could get them in the bag. That’s not going to be that easy however.


Ipswich Preview – Can the Tractor Boys continue their great form?

It has been back to back league wins for Ipsiwch. Those were both 1-0 wins over Gillingham and then against Crewe on the weekend.

Those were home games and it means that Ipsiwch remained perfect from five games at Portman Road this eason.

However, out on the road they have taken a W2 D1 L2 record.

The two losses in that sequence have been in their last two road fixtures. They were beaten by Doncatser and Lincoln in those games.

That has hampered their away form badly and the Tractor Boys are going into this one as 3/1 underdogs* (odds taken 04:49 GMT, Sunday, 1st November).

All of the seven goals that Ipswich have conceded this season have been away from home.

They are averaging 1.6 goals per away game, conceding at an average of 1.4 per game.

But it is the telling factor of who they have lost against on the road.

The two games that Ipswich have lost on their travels were against the only two top-eight sides they have faced away from home.

Sunderland are in sixth, so that could spell a little trouble for the Tractor Boys on the road again.

Five of the seven goals that Ipswich have conceded this season away from home have gone against them in the second half of games.

There has not been a clean sheet from Ipswich in their last four games on the road.

Can they come up with a response to their slump in away form and bag a superb three points?


Sunderland vs Ipswich Betting Advice

There is not likely going to be too much between these two on the night. Especially with the matches coming thick and fast.

We think that Ipswich are just that little bit vulnerable on the road. Therefore we would lean towards the home win.

The 10/11 odds on the Sunderland win in the match outright doesn’t look bad value* (odds taken 04:49 GMT, Sunday, 1st November).


Key Facts – Sunderland vs Ipswich Betting Tip

  • Sunderland have won three of their last four home games against Ipswich
  • Sunderland traily Ipsiwch by four points in the league standings
  • Ipswich have lost their last two league away games


While we see a home win coming, we don’t expect it to be by a huge margin at all.

The Sunderland to win by a 1 goal margin option is at 11/4* (odds taken 04:49 GMT, Sunday, 1st November).

That looks to be about right for this one. It’s a big game for both of them. Sunderland more-so to try and make up ground on the top-two.
