Leeds come into this fixture having failed to secure any points in their midweek matched despite scoring four goals. The negative factor for Ipswich is that they have yet to lead at half time in any of their nine league games to date this season.
The positive news for readers is that online bookmakers are offering free bets to all new customers placing bets on the Npower Championship.
This should be a feisty encounter with Leeds taking on opponents with all their traditional battling qualities remaining in place, and Ipswich manager Roy Keane awaiting the arrival of the visitors!
Championship betting suggests that Ipswich are the more likely team to figure prominently later in the season and the 11/10 quote about the Tractor Boys for this game with bookies Stan James and Boylesports will be taken.
Bookmakers have priced Lloyd Sam of Leeds up at 14/1 to score the opening goal of the game and with Ipswich having struggled to find the net in the first half of their games, coupled with Sam’s ability to score at important periods of play, 14/1 with online bookies Victor Chandler and SportingBet should be accommodated, irrespective of whether Leeds go on to secure points from the game.
Only four goals have been scored in the last three renewals of this fixture, with two of those games ending in 1-1 draws.
Although Leeds have scored nearly as many goals as they have conceded, the sixteen goals they have leaked in nine league matches will give confidence to readers who have taken the 11/10 about the home team. The drought of goals in this match in recent seasons should be brought to an end.
