Back the Blues to beat Brighton with Sky Bet

Ipswich have lost just four of the 20 matches at Portman Road since Mick McCarthy took over and will be confident of bouncing back from a disappointing reversal at Wigan.

7/5 for a Town win is a great price when you consider they’ve won five of their last six home games. More specifically for this game, they've scored first in six of their last seven home matches against top-half teams like Brighton. Under McCarthy, Ipswich have won 11/13 at home when opening the scoring and, over 20 games, no team has a better scored-first home record.

An alternative to the straight win is for Ipswich to lead at the break and full-time. Six of Town’s eight wins against top-half teams have been win/win and five of Brighton’s last seven away defeats have been loss/loss. Ipswich win/win can be backed at 11/4 with Sky Bet.   

Other reasons to bet:

  • Ipswich have had over 2.5 goals in their last eight home games 1/1 
  • The Tractor Boys have scored first in six of their last eight home matches against top-half teams like Brighton 10/11
  • There have been over 1.5 first-half goals in 3/4 Ipswich home games against top-half sides 2/1

Remember, if you haven’t already got a Sky Bet account, you can get a completely free £10 when you join and Ipswich will also get £10 when you make your first deposit.

As well as that, Ipswich will benefit as you bet throughout the season, so make sure you open your account via
