Leagues Tipped:

Having delivered another winning selection in his featured column in midweek, SlipsTips returns with a Bet Builder for Sunderland's showdown with Oxford in English League One on Saturday.

Sunderland vs Oxford (Saturday, 15:00)

Sunderland meet Oxford in League One on Saturday with just two points separating the promotion-chasing clubs in the standings.

The Black Cats are in the midst of a three-match unbeaten run, while Karl's Robinson's guests take the trip north having avoided defeat in each of their last six league fixtures.

With both teams in good form, I'm going to steer clear of the outright betting here and instead dip into Sky Bet's corners market and take the 5/6 about each team to hit 3+ corners and each team to receive 10+ booking points.

Hosts Sunderland are averaging 5.28 flagkicks s per 90 minutes, with Lee Johnson's side hitting the 3+ line in 15 of their opening 18 League One contests of the campaign.

Oxford, on the other hand, have proven prominent in the corner rankings this term, averaging a healthy 6.50 corners per-game, a tally that increases to a lofty league-high 7.71 on their travels.

With that in mind, I'm more than happy to back the pair to hit three corners apiece here in what should be an enjoyable encounter in the North East.

To round off the Bet Builder I'm going with each side to receive 10+ booking points in what should also be a closely-fought battle between two tightly matched teams.

Sunderland are averaging 1.89 yellow cards per-game and have received at least one caution in 16 of their 18 League One outings this season, while the U's average sits at 1.39, with the Kassam club picking up a minimum of one card in each of their seven road trips to date.

Referee Jeremy Simpson is a middle of the range car issuer but it's worth noting the EFL whistler has awarded both teams a card in seven of his 12 outings this term, including three of his last four assignments.

With all things considered, coupled with the fact the aforementioned formula would have paid out in five of the pair's last six collective league games, the 5/6 (SkyBet) on each team to hit 3+ corners and each team to receive 10+ booking points makes plenty of appeal at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.

Recommended Bet

  • Each team 3+ Corners
  • Each team 10+ Booking Points
  •  5/6 (SkyBet)
