Our favourite betting tips for Ipswich vs Shrewsbury

Check our free top betting tips that could help you select your own Ipswich vs Shrewsbury prediction:

Ipswich to Win

Ipswich are back in contention for direct promotion after achieving 5 consecutive wins. The Tractor Boys also have never lost against Shrewsbury before (W5 D2). At the same time, The Shrews are without a win in their last 4 away outings (D2 L2) and with only 1 win in the last 3 rounds. All this makes us believe that Ipswich will continue their winning march.

Clean Sheet Ipswich

Our next Ipswich vs Shrewsbury prediction is for the hosts to keep their seventh consecutive clean sheet. With Ipswich also keeping clean sheets in 2 of the last 4 H2Hs + Shrewsbury scoring only 1 goal from open play in the last 4 rounds we really think that this betting tip is worth considering.

Chaplin to Score Anytime

Ipswich’s top scorer Chaplin (16 goals) enters the match with an impressive stat to his name. He has scored in 41% of all of Ipswich’s home matches so far. In fact, Chaplin scored 4 goals in just the last 3 home league games. This is why our final Ipswich vs Shrewsbury prediction is for Chaplin to get on the scoresheet again.

Ipswich vs Shrewsbury Lineups & News

Ipswich

Ipswich dominated on their visit to Bolton last time around and easily won 2-0. The Tractor Boys were better in every stat of this match and this was a fifth consecutive very convincing display from them. Only a win away from re-entering the top 2 so the motivation remains very high.

Midfielder Evans is out for the season. Humphreys was doing well in his absence, but he sat out the last match injured and is now questionable. If he can’t play Luongo is set to start. Not likely to make many other changes.

Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury beat strugglers Morecambe 3-1 at home last weekend to preserve their slim playoff hopes alive. This win was just second in the last 6 rounds though and the Shrews are showing signs of slowing down. Their form on the road had been an issue in particular and they are now without a win in their last 4 away matches.

Not many changes to the starting XI can be expected, although if hurt last weekend Bayliss fails to recover he will have to be replaced. Naturally, Phillips can take his spot, but Phillips himself is a doubt due to a concussion. The main striker Saydee is also questionable, while last season’s top scorer Udoh is a long-term absentee. This could see Street starting again up front despite his unconvincing form for several months now.
