Morecambe vs Sunderland – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Morecambe have lost just one of their last eight fixtures on home turf ahead of their final day clash with Sunderland. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Morecambe Double Chance

The tension should be palpable on Saturday when Morecambe, who need a result to guarantee their survival, host a Sunderland outfit that need point to land a playoff berth on the campaign’s final day. The Shrimps have lost only once in their last eight matches at the Mazuma Stadium however, and against what will undoubtedly be a nervous Sunderland side prone to dramatic collapses, Morecambe could be worth backing in the double chance market.

Both Teams to Score

Morecambe have become a real favourite with both teams to score bettors in the second half of the League One season. Ten of The Shrimps’ last 11 fixtures at home have produced action at both ends and a similar outcome looks possible in the campaign’s climactic contest there on Saturday. BTTS has landed in four of the Black Cats’ last five tests in the third tier and punters should stick to the same market this weekend.

Cole Stockton to Score Anytime

Cole Stockton is just one goal behind current joint-top scorers Will Keane and Ross Stewart in the race to land League One’s Golden Boot this term and the Morecambe striker will be gunning for glory on Saturday. Stockton has already bagged a hugely impressive 23 goals this season and with a run of four strikes in six appearances behind him, we’re tipping the expert finisher to find the net again.

Morecambe vs Sunderland Match Preview and Team News

Morecambe

Injured defender Ryan McLaughlin is absent for Morecambe this weekend, while Kyle Letheren and Freddie Price are both rated as doubtful. The Shrimps are just two points clear of the drop zone ahead of the season’s final day and they will need to match Gillingham’s result to stay up.

Sunderland

Dennis Cirkin, Aiden McGeady and Niall Huggins are all out injured for Sunderland while Leon Dajaku and Carl Winchester face a race to be fit. The Black Cats are currently in 5th spot, though they could still drop out of the playoff positions on the final day of the campaign if results go against them.
