Ipswich Town have enjoyed a week on top of the Championship after seemingly putting last season’s problems behind them.
In the wake of their 3-0 win against Bristol City last weekend, the Tractor Boys are 14/1 to repeat that scoreline as they host Hull at Portman Road.
However, matches between these teams are normally tight so 9/4 on a draw is a decent-looking bet.
The head to head stats between the teams sees a very even match-up with Hull leading nine wins to eight, with eight draws.
Nevertheless, the more telling statistic is that it is 21 years since the Tigers last won at Portman Road.
A 1-1 draw is priced at 6-1, which means new customers using their free £25 bet for joining bwin to have a punt on this final score could win £175 if it comes in.
Despite losing England Under-21s star Connor Wickham to Sunderland in the summer, Ipswich manager Paul Jewell has made some savvy signings.
Michael Chopra has added some much-needed goal threat up front. The former Cardiff man marked his competitive debut with a brace last weekend.
However, they have a real defensive frailty, with only two league clean sheets at Portman Road in 2011.
With Ivar Ingimarsson definitely out and Damien Delaney battling for fitness, 21-year-old New Zealander Tommy Smith may again be asked to step up, but could be short of confidence after he and his back line were accused by their manager of “daft defending” as they were dumped out of the cup by lower league Northampton in midweek.
Yet a habit of scoring after the interval leads to some interesting Ipswich bets.
The Tractor Boys are 4/1 to win after a draw at half-time or 27/20 to win the second half.
Hull are looking to avoid their worst start to a season in five years. They are yet to score this campaign after shipping a late goal to Blackpool at the KC Stadium in their Championship opener and then losing to lowly Macclesfield in the Carling Cup.
However, there is plenty of roar left in a Tigers’ side still benefiting from their Premier League parachute payments.
With this in mind, they may yet salvage that 1-1 draw.
