Our recommended bet for Saturday’s clash at the Stadium of Light comes in the form of a draw between Sunderland and Millwall.
A £10 wager for such an outcome will secure you a return of £31 with Betway.
The Championship is set to return to screens across the globe on Saturday, December 3rd, in a lunchtime fixture at the Stadium of Light.
The matchup in question will see two sides separated by just four points, but a full nine places in the table in England’s 2nd tier, go head to head.
Hosts Sunderland, for their part, will head into proceedings with spirits high in the camp.
This comes with the Black Cats having headed into the World Cup break on the back of a solid stretch of form, featuring two wins from three.
The most recent came in the club’s last outing, when a trip to Birmingham City saw Manchester United loanee Amad Diallo prove key once more.
After Ellis Simms opened the scoring at St. Andrew’s, a moment of individual brilliance culminated in Amad’s 3rd goal in five, en route to a 2-1 triumph.
Tony Mowbray’s men, as a result, have climbed back up to 15th in the Championship table.
With only seven wins on the board from 20 attempts, though, Sunderland remain just four points clear of the bottom three.
Safe to say, then, that the Black Cats will have a third victory in four firmly on their minds when proceedings kick back into gear in Tyne and Wear this weekend.
Ready to throw a spanner in such plans, though, are a Millwall outfit who have long proven themselves a tough nut to crack.
The Lions, after a largely hit-and-miss opening to the term, have since slipped to defeat in just one of their last nine league outings.
Following a skid featuring just two points from an available nine from late October leading into early November, Gary Rowett’s men then bounced back in their final clash leading into last month’s winter break.
A tricky trip to Deepdale to face Preston North End saw the visitors rack up four goals, to return to winning ways in style.
Millwall, as a result, have positioned themselves in the thick of the promotion playoff picture, flying high in 6th, in the knowledge that another triumph on the road on Saturday would guide them clear of both Watford and Norwich City, into 4th.
We at 101 therefore view the Lions as favourites, albeit just, to bag all three points at the Stadium of Light.
Do not be at all surprised, however, if hosts Sunderland keep alive their solid pre-break form, to emerge with a share of the spoils come the full-time whistle tomorrow afternoon.
