Sunderland Preview – Can Sunderland land an important three points?

Sunderland are doing all they can to work their way into the League One playoffs this season.

They are currently undefeated in eight now, winning five of those.

Sunderland’s home form is right on point with a three-match winning streak going.

For Friday’s encounter with Shrewsbury, the Black Cats are 8/11 for the win* (odds recorded 20:21 GMT on April 13th, 2022 at William Hill)

The overall home record of Sunderland this season is W14 D2 L4.

In that, they have averaged two goals per fixture.

Defensively they have shipped at an average of just 0.75 goals per game on home turf.

It’s been a clean sheet by them in 45% of their home fixtures.

So three points don’t look beyond them on Friday.

Our betting prediction:
Sunderland 1-goal winning margin

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 20:21 GMT on April 13th, 2022 at William Hill)


Seven of Sunderland’s home wins this season have been by a one-goal margin.

This is the start of a very busy weekend, so that may be considered to pop up again.

They will want to manage their energy levels, so a Sunderland to win by a 1 goal margin pick is at 5/2 for football betting* (odds recorded 20:21 GMT on April 13th, 2022 at William Hill).

Earlier this season when they went to Shrewsbury there was a 1-1 draw.

Sunderland are W3 D1 in their last four on home turf against the Shrews.

Neither of Sunderland’s two previous League One home games against Shrewsbury went above 2.5 goals.


Shrewsbury Preview – Can the Shrews stop Sunderland?

Shrewsbury are safe enough from any relegation threats that they can coast to the end of the season.

It’s been a reasonable W3 D3 L2 record by them in their last eight.

But the bulk of their form this season has been on home turf.

Shrewsbury have put only three away wins on the board across the course of the campaign.

For Friday’s match they are 4/1 underdogs* (odds recorded 20:21 GMT on April 13th, 2022 at William Hill).

Looking at the away form of Shrewsbury in League One this season, they have struggled a lot away at strong teams.

Their record on the road against teams currently in the top half of the table is W1 D2 L8.

Interestingly two of their three away wins this season have come in their last four.

Those were against Burton and then a shock big road win against third-placed Rotherham.

But that latter result has clearly been an exception to their overall road form.
