They may be 22 points ahead of Ipswich Town, but punters are backing Championship leaders Wolves to come unstuck at Portman Road this afternoon (3pm).

The runaway league leaders come to Suffolk nine points clear of second-placed Derby but in the midst of a mini-slump, having lost last weekend, 2-0 at home to Nottingham Forest, in the wake of being dumped out of the FA Cup by Swansea.

On paper, they would still be favourites to claim three points at the Blues – but, according to Oddschecker, 65% of all bets placed on the game have gone on an Ipswich win at odds of 23/5.

Some 19% of bets are on the draw at 29/10, with 16% backing Wolves at 3/4.

But, if you look at the first goalscorer market, Wolves players dominate, led by Leo Bonatini at around 4/1. Joe Garner, as usual, is the Town leader in that market, at 10/1.
