Sunderland Preview – Black Cats back on the up

After a three-match losing streak, Sunderland have gotten their act back together it would seem.

They are W2 D2 in their last four matches and will look to build on an impressive home campaign.

The Black Cats are W7 D1 L1 at the Stadium of Light this season in league action.

On the weekend they were in action there, playing out a 1-1 draw with Oxford.

In the match outright for football betting on Tuesday night, Sunderland are 4/9 odds-on favourites* (odds recorded 16:23 GMT December 6th 2021).

It is such an impressive home record that Sunderland have, that they should take this big chance at three points.

Sunderland have averaged 1.9 goals per home game in this campaign.

They have given up an average of just 0.56 goals per game at the Stadium of Light with four clean sheets in their nine home games.

Our betting prediction:
Sunderland to win & BTTS

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 16:23 GMT December 6th 2021)


Sunderland’s only previous home game against Morecambe came in a League Cup fixture back in 2012.

The Mackems took a 2-0 win in that one over the visitors.

Sunderland have not been trailing at the half time break in any home fixture this season (W3 D6).

With that record in mind, a Draw/Sunderland HT/FT pick is an option to consider at 7/2* (odds recorded 16:23 GMT December 6th 2021).

Sunderland have been level at the break in each of their last three league games at home this season.

Only Oxford have earned more home points in League One this season than Sunderland, but they have played two home games more than the Black Cats have done.


Morecambe Preview – Tough trip for the Shrimpers

With Morecambe struggling just above the drop zone in League One this looks like a tough away day for them.

The Shrimpers have taken one win in their last nine league fixtures (D2 L6).

They are, without surprise, sizable 11/2 underdogs in the match outright for the victory on Tuesday* (odds recorded 16:23 GMT December 6th 2021).

The last victory that Morecambe recorded was away from home, a 2-1 success at Fleetwood.

Fleetwood though are one of the four teams beneath them in the table, so facing Sunderland is a different kettle of fish.

Overall this season in league action, Morecambe have taken a W2 D1 L6 record on the road.

Both wins in the sequence have happened against teams currently in the relegation zone.

Struggles rarely come without big defensive woes and the Shrimpers have had those.

Morecambe have conceded an average of 2.2 goals per away game this season.

Morecambe have failed to collect a clean sheet on their travels this season.

Home and away combined they have conceded at least one goal in each of their last nine.

But as a positive for them, Morecambe have found the back of the net in each of their last six away games.

They are facing a superb Sunderland defence in this one.

But a Sunderland to win & BTTS option may be considered at a quote of 9/4* (odds recorded 16:23 GMT December 6th 2021).

That’s because the Shrimpers have gotten on the scoresheet in both away games against other current top-seven sides this season.
