Fulham v Sunderland Prediction & Betting Tips – 27th April 201824th April 2018 / lee
Fulham v Sunderland Championship, 27th April 7.45pm
The Cottagers will be looking to get some pressure on second-placed Cardiff with a win in this Friday night fixture. The race for automatic promotion is still open just about. Fulham will be expected to continue their hot streak against a Sunderland side who found themselves relegated last weekend after a poor home loss against Burton.
Fulham v Sunderland Betting Odds*
Fulham 2/9, Draw 5/1, Sunderland 11/1* (betting odds taken on April 24th, 2018 at 2:16 a.m.)
Fulham News and Form
The Cottagers are doing everything possible to try and wrestle second place away from Cardiff. Fulham are on a remarkable 22 match undefeated streak of form in the Championship and are unbeaten in fourteen at Craven Cottage. Their home record this season in the league stands at W12 D8 L2 and they have been so good there. They have averaged 1.7 goals per game at home and they have conceded at less than a goal per game so Fulham to win to nil at bet365 for 11/10 odds* (betting odds taken on April 24th, 2018 at 2:16 a.m.) would appear to be a pretty reasonable call. 61% of their home goals have been in the second half of matches this season and they have scored at least two goals in all but one of their last eleven home games. In the bet365 correct score market a Fulham 2-0 is at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on April 24th, 2018 at 2:16 a.m.). They have to just keep on trucking and hope.
Sunderland News and Form
Sunderland are out of hope and out of time as they will be playing in League One next season. That was confirmed with a loss at home against second-from-bottom Burton last weekend. There has been just the one win for Sunderland since the end of January in the league and it has just not been good enough. The Black Cats are W4 D9 L9 for the season away from home and they are winless in their last two on their travels. They haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last nine away games this season and their defence has been picked apart time and time again. Sunderland have conceded an average of 1.7 goals per game away from home this season, taking a clean sheet in just 14% of their road games. Both teams not to score with bet365 is at 5/6 odds* (betting odds taken on April 24th, 2018 at 2:16 a.m.) as you would imagine that Sunderland are pretty deflated and they face such a strong team in this one. Only Burton have a worse defensive record than Sunderland have managed to produce this term.
Fulham v Sunderland Head to Head
Sunderland picked up a win at the Stadium of Light earlier this season against Fulham, taking out the visitors 1-0. That leaves them actually with a positive record from the recent head to head clashes. Sunderland are W3 D1 L1 in their last five against the Cottagers. Their earlier league clash this season was their first meeting in the league since the 2013/14 Premier League.
Who will win – Fulham v Sunderland Predictions
Even though head to head form isn’t on their side the Cottagers are in fantastic form and can deliver another blow to the already deflated and defeated Black Cats. Back a home win and the Cottagers are good enough to pick up a clean sheet as well.
