Sunderland vs Fulham: Our top betting predictions

Sunderland and Fulham are both enjoying strong seasons based on what their respective pre-season targets would have been with a cup run very much a bonus. Who will still be in the FA Cup come 10pm on Wednesday evening? Find out with our Sunderland vs Fulham match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Backing a draw

With our first prediction for this game we are backing another draw between these two meaning the action will be settled in either extra time or penalties. Both sides have, as we mentioned earlier, enjoyed good seasons but neither have recorded wins for a couple of weeks either. Sunderland have now drawn two games on the bounce whilst Fulham are winless in four with each of their last two draws as well. With wins lacking for both in recent weeks combined with Fulham's superior quality likely to be cancelled out by a hostile Stadium of Light we can see a scenario where each side cancels the other out.

A low scorer

Our next prediction for this game comes from the total goals market and we simply don't see this one being a belter hence we're backing under 2.5 goals. The last clash only saw two goals meaning that's now three of the last five head to head games that have fallen short of the 2.5 cut off. On top of that, both sides have recent form for low scoring games. Sunderland have seen each of their last three games max out at just two goals whilst Fulham have seen each of their last four matches end under the 2.5 threshold.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game and how might that impact your view of our predictions? Let's find out.

Sunderland odds: 14/5 (3.80) – 26%

Draw odds: 8/3 (3.67) – 27%

Fulham odds: 8/9 (1.89) – 53%

Fulham arrive into this game as an odds on favourite and whilst we'd probably agree that they deserve to be favourite, the odds on offer aren't something we'd see as great value. The total goals market, which we've predicted above, is another loaded with interest. Despite the stats we mentioned earlier, bookies have the over 2.5 marker down as the odds on price. It's a good opportunity to exploit some value!

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Sunderland vs Fulham

Sunderland

Tony Mowbray has got Sunderland playing really well since his appointment and they didn't look out of sorts against Fulham in the previous clash. That detail is probably a crucial indicator as to how the Black Cats will approach this game too. It will be a similar XI.

Predicted lineup – Patterson, Hume, Ballard, Batth, Alese, Neil, Michut, Clarke, Ba, Diallo, Stewart

Fulham

Fulham made hard work of the last game, however, Marco Silva will feel his side did enough to win the game and, on another day, he will believe they would have got the job done. We think he might switch things up a little from the last encounter but the XI will largely be the same.

Predicted lineup – Rodak, Tete, Diop, Adarabioyo, Kurzawa, Cairney, Reed, Willian, Pereira, Solomon, Vinicius

*Starting lineups are usually announced one hour prior to kick off.

Player to watch

Our player to watch in this game is Fulham forward Carlos Vinicius. The Brazilian, who previously spent a loan spell with Tottenham, has a really strong goalscoring record in Portugal, which, as yet, hasn't translated to English football too well. On his day though he is capable of bagging goals and he'll be a threat in this game should Fulham find a way to find him.
