Punters are backing Ipswich Town to get their season back on track with a win against Leeds United at Portman Road this afternoon (3pm).
The Blues host sixth-placed Leeds looking for their first win in six games in all competitions, having been dumped out of the FA Cup at the Third Round stage yet again last weekend.
Town haven’t won a game since they saw off Reading 2-0 on December 16, and they’ve dropped to 12th in the Championship table, seven points off the play-offs.
But despite that poor run, 55% of bets laid on the match have gone on a Town win at odds of 11/5, according to Oddschecker.
A draw, at 23/10 is the next most popular bet, with 27% of the market. Just 18% of bets on the game have gone on a Leeds win, at odds of 8/5.
Leeds striker Pierre Michel-Lasogga leads the first goalscorer market at around 9/2, with Town’s Joe Garner priced at 6/1.
A 1-1 draw is the bookies’ tip at around 5/1, followed by a 1-0 win for Leeds at 13/2 and a 1-0 triumph for Town at 7/1.
