Huddersfield vs Sunderland: Our top betting tips
Huddersfield's season is shaping up to be a pretty painful one as they sit second from bottom. Can they find a way to ease some of those relegation concerns here? Find out with our Huddersfield vs Sunderland match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.
Huddersfield to win
We kick off our tips for this game by backing Huddersfield to take maximum points. For starters, the Terriers have better general form than Sunderland with Huddersfield having collected seven points from the last 15 available to them as opposed to Sunderland taking just four. What is more relevant though is perhaps the respective home and away form both teams have shown. Huddersfield have won three of their last four home games whilst Sunderland have not won in four away from the Stadium of Light. Finally, it's worth noting that Huddersfield won the last head to head clash too.
Going under 2.5 goals
Our next tip from this game comes from the total goals market and, unfortunately for the neutrals, we don't see this game being a classic. Huddersfield have seen each of their last four games go under the 2.5 threshold whilst Sunderland have seen each of their last two away games end in the same manner. As for the head to head record, two of the last three meetings between these sides have gone south of the all important 2.5 cut off. With those stats and the odds on offer, we think calling this game under 2.5 goals is the best value bet.
Here are the key stats & form guide for Huddersfield vs Sunderland
Can Huddersfield push towards safety?
Sunderland have made a strong return to the Championship after several years in the third tier but, even so, they only find themselves six points above their hosts here, who are second from bottom. With that considered, the result of this game could make things feel a lot different for both sides; the question is, who will be the side feeling positive about it!?
After an impressive result last time out and two clean sheets on the bounce it is highly unlikely we see any changes to this Huddersfield lineup. Pat Jones, Jonathan Hogg and Matt Pearson are amongst several injured players ruled out.
Huddersfield Predicted lineup – Nicholls, Turton, Lees, Helik, Nakayama, Kasumu, Camara, Thomas, Rudoni, Jackson, Ward
Sunderland have more than a handful of players who will miss this game due to injury with Ross Stewart and Lynden Gooch the two most notable names. Will Ellis Simms, who got 20 minutes under his belt last time, be fit for a start? We're not quite sure.
Sunderland Predicted lineup – Patterson, Cirkin, Batth, Wright, O'Nien, Neil, Evans, Dajaku, Pritchard, Clarke, Diallo
