Ipswich v Preston: betting preview with 888sport
North End are 11/4 to cap a stunning week with a third victory on the bounce when they visit Ipswich Town on Saturday.
After bagging a superb 2-0 win at QPR, PNE followed up with a comfortable cup victory at home to Oldham, and will be confident of completing the hat-trick over an Ipswich team without a win since the opening day of the season.
The last three meetings between the two at Portman Road have ended in 1-1 draws, but with North End in flying form, we like the chances of Grayson’s boys nicking this 2-1 at 13/1, while both teams to score pays a shade over Evens.
North End will have to keep an eye on opening day hat-trick hero Grant Ward, who’s 19/4 to open the scoring, but Jermaine Beckford is back among the goals and could be a very nice priced 13/2 to bag the opener.
All six goals in Town’s only win of the season so far came in the second half, so it could pay to back both teams scoring in the second 45 at 3/1, with three goals or more in the same period a 5/1 chance.
Prediction: 1-2 13/1
Bet of the day: Preston win 11/4
Outside punt: Callum Robinson to score the last goal in a PNE win 15/1
