Punters are backing Ipswich to beat Fulham and make history this afternoon at Portman Road (3pm).

If the Blues can see off the Cottagers, it will be the first time in the club’s professional history that they will have started a league campaign with five straight wins.

And, though Fulham are actually the betting favourites for the match, just over 57% of all bets laid on the Championship tussle are on Town to win, according to Oddschecker.

Town are around 27/11 to win, while the visitors are shorter odds at around 6/5 - and 39% of bets so far have been on a Fulham win.

Punters are tipping a result one way or the other though, with just 4% of bets going on a draw, priced at 3/1.

A draw is actually the bookies’ tip, with 1-1 being the shortest odds at around 13/2.
