Burton Albion vs. Ipswich Town Betting Tips
Burton Albion will host Ipswich Town for their Matchday 42 clash on Friday hoping to build on their last week’s 1-1 draw against Aston Villa, and finally earn a win after two failed attempts. However, with the tough schedule behind them and the slump they’ve been in with one win in their last four outings, we don’t feel they’ll be able to outclass their rivals now but we’ll rather go for a Draw priced at 12/5 with Ladbrokes
Ipswich Town come into the match after their disappointing loss at Fulham (3-1) which was their second consecutive away loss with similar performance and a 3-1 loss at Cardiff also behind them, but this only ended their five-match unbeaten streak on the road and we now feel they’ll be able to return to it with a quality performance at Pirelli Stadium.
The Blues have netted at least a goal in every of their last seven away matches, snatching seven points in the process and holding off sides such as Preston, Aston Villa, and Brighton. Burton have proven to be a tough home side and while we don’t believe the visitors can snatch all three points, shared spoils should satisfy manager Mick McCarthy.
Brewers have been netting a lot of goals in front of the home fans as well (eight in their last five outings there), and we now fancy both sides to find the net; going for a Yes on Both teams to score which looks a very solid bet to get behind at Evens with bet365
Burton Albion vs. Ipswich Town Stats
The teams have met just once in recent history, as Ipswich expectedly secured the home points in a 2-0 home win over their rivals back in October 2016. However, we do feel Burton Albion will now have more on them at this ground as this sets to be a much narrowers contest.
We’ll thus go for a 1-1 draw here which comes at a good-looking 11/2 with BetVictor
and would be the fifth identical draw for Ipswich in their last eight away games.
