Sunderland to Win and Both Teams to Score
Sunderland are worthy favourites to win their fifth league assignment in a row at the Stadium of Light on Saturday, though Cambridge should make them work hard for their points. United toppled highflying Ipswich and league leaders Wigan in their last two away fixtures and they have enough about them to be awkward customers for the Black Cats. With that in mind, we recommend coupling a home win with both teams to score this weekend.
Over 2.5 Goals
Recent tussles at the Stadium of Light have been entertaining affairs with four of Sunderland’s last seven home games producing over 2.5 goals. Three goals rattled the net when the Black Cats last dug their claws into Cambridge back in November and with the potential for action high again, bettors are advised to consider a stake in the same totals market on Saturday.
Nathan Broadhead to Score Anytime
Nathan Broadhead managed to chip in with three goals from midfield in Sunderland’s last two home tests and the Welshman’s reliability in the final third can be taken advantage of in the anytime goalscorer markets on Saturday. The 24-year-old bagged the winner for the Black Cats when they beat Cambridge in November and he could be a key performer against the same side in Saturday’s rematch.
Sunderland vs Cambridge Match Preview and Team News
Lee Burge, Aiden McGeady and Niall Huggins are expected to be sidelined again for Sunderland this week, though Thorben Hoffman, Callum Doyle, Alex Pritchard and Leon Dajaku will all hope to be back in contention. Sunderland are unbeaten in ten League One fixtures, though they still have work to do to ensure that they finish in the playoff places.
Cambridge could be without Sam Sherring, Gregg Taylor, Kai McKenzie-Lyle and Jensen Weir for their trip to the north east on Saturday. Harrison Dunk is also a doubt, though veteran schemer Wes Hoolahan was fit enough to start in Tuesday evening’s 2-0 reverse to Charlton and the midfielder should be ready to go again this weekend.
