The home side are in pretty bad shape coming into this and the bookies aren’t giving them much of a chance. Indeed, Sunderland’s odds continue to fall at the time of writing and with little league action occurring in England this weekend thanks to the international this game is seeing plenty of action from bettors.

The home side have won just one of their last five in League One, drawing one and losing three while at home, things are slightly better; they’ve won two drawn one and lost one. Sunderland are enjoying some great form, they’ve not lost any of their 11 matches in all competitions. In the league they’re unbeaten over their last nine, winning seven and keeping six clean sheets in the process. Away from the Stadium of Light, they’ve only lost one of their last 15 on the road in the league and have kept three clean sheets over their last four on their league travels.

As we can see here the home side are really struggling for goals and we can see from our Bet Dynamo Insights that there’s minus value in backing Both Teams to Score here. Can we oppose it then and either Lay BTTS, or just back BTTS: No?

Well, as we can see Bristol Rovers have failed to score in a whopping 39% of their home League One matches and have only kept a Clean Sheet in 17%. Sunderland, being one of the form teams in England at the moment, have kept an awful lot of clean sheets on the road, a whopping 65% of their matches. There’s decent value in opposing BTTS here.

We can see here that Sunderland have scored two goals or more in 65% of their away League one matches and are averaging 1.76 goals per away league matches. Bristol are conceding 1.44 goals on average per home league match and for Sunderland to score Over 1.5 goals 64.74% of the time we should expect to see odds of around 1.55 and add in the bookie’s overround and the odds should be more like 1.50. Currently, Sunderland’s odds to score Over 1.5 goals sit around 1.91. It must be noted too that the Black Cats have scored at least two goals in five out of their last six matches on the road and in seven of their last nine in League One.
