Preston vs Ipswich – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Both Teams to Score (3/4)

  • Both teams managed to score in six of Preston’s last nine league games at Deepdale.
  • BTTS also landed when Ipswich and Preston last met at Portman Road back in October.

Ipswich have lost some momentum in the Championship’s race for automatic promotion and the Tractor Boys should face another stiff test at Preston on Saturday. BTTS has hit the mark in six of North End’s last nine home games and in three of their last four encounters with Town. Our top Preston vs Ipswich prediction backs that trend to continue here.

Preston vs Ipswich prediction

Preston vs Ipswich Team News

Preston

Preston have little in the way of personnel issues to contend with ahead of the weekend and they should be able to name a similar XI to the one that drew 1-1 at Millwall last time out. North End sit in 12th spot, just five points behind the playoff places.

Predicted Lineup for Preston: Woodman – Storey, Lindsay, Hughes – Potts, Frokjaer-Jensen, Whiteman, Ledson, Millar – Keane, Riis
