Shrewsbury vs Ipswich – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Ipswich have lost just one of their last seven away games in League One ahead of their trip to play Shrewsbury. Read our top three predictions for this week’s fixture below.

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

Draw no Bet: Ipswich

Ipswich’s fine 11 game unbeaten run in League One came to an end in a shock 1-0 reverse at home to Cambridge last weekend, though the Tractor Boys could bounce back at the first time of asking when they visit Shrewsbury. The Shrews have dropped points in five of their last eight assignments at Montgomery Waters Meadow and that record suggests they are worth opposing. However, Ipswich have been held to draws in three of their last four on the road, so take them in the draw no bet market for a safety net.

Under 2.5 Goals

Ipswich have been making impressive strides under Kieran McKenna, though goalscoring could never be described at their forté. With reliable goal getters few and far between the Tractor Boys’ ranks, they have instead leaned on their strong defensive foundations for success and under 2.5 goals have been scored in 13 of their last 14 league matches as a result. That pattern is unlikely to shift much this week, so expect a contest of slender margins again in Shrewsbury.

Half With Most Goals – Second

With Ipswich’s penchant for keeping things tight in the early exchanges of their fixtures well-established, supporters attending Montgomery Waters Meadow might have to wait until the second half before Saturday’s fixture sparks into life. Seven of the last ten goals scored in games involving Town were notched after the interval and we recommend backing the second half to see more action than the first for that reason.

Shrewsbury vs Ipswich Match Preview and Team News

Shrewsbury

Midfielder David Davis is listed as Shrewsbury’s only injury absentee ahead of the weekend. The Shrews’ three-game winning streak was ended by a 2-0 loss at MK Dons last time out, though Town’s recent spike in form has pushed them to within touching distance of the division’s top half.

Ipswich

George Edmundson and Kyle Edwards are sidelined for Ipswich this week, though Kieran McKenna will hope to have Kayden Jackson and Lee Evans back in his matchday squad after short layoffs for the pair. The Tractor Boys lost at home to Cambridge last time out, though they really shouldn’t have having dominated almost 70% of the ball.
