Bristol Rovers vs Sunderland Prediction
Bristol Rovers is on a 3 game losing streak, following a 3-1 loss on the road against Southend in the last match. Ben Garner will have worries about his striker’s form as the team has slotted in only 2 goals within the last five fixtures.
Sunderland is backed by their overall performances in the league and their position in the table this season.
It has to be noted that Rovers are 17 points behind the Black Cats in the standings.
The visitors have lost only one of their last five fixtures. That loss happened in an away match. However, they have lost only two of their recent 7 away fixtures.
The Black Cats will visit on the back of a 2-2 draw at home against Gillingham in their previous encounter.
In sharp contrast, the Rovers have won only one of their last five home matches in the campaign. Since they have not been strong with their home ground advantage, things will be easier for Sunderland.
To make things worse, Phil Parkinson’s boys have won all their five overall h2h meetings with the Rovers since 2000.
Without even scoring any goal in the recent three h2h clashes, the odds are stacked against the host in the clash at Bristol.
With 1.40 odds, a draw no bet over Sunderland will be the best option for the punters in the match. Having produced only 2 goals in total in the last two meetings held here, expect a low-scoring affair under 2.5 goals.
