After ending last weekend with another winner in his featured column, SlipsTips returns with a Bet Builder for Ipswich's clash with Oxford in English League One on Saturday.
Ipswich vs Oxford (Saturday, 15:00)
The standout fixture from this weekend's limited set of League One matches will take place at Portman on Saturday afternoon as Ipswich entertain Oxford.
The Tractor Boys, who have triumphed in three of their last four third-tier tussles, finally appear to have got their act together, while Oxford will roll into Suffolk in the midst of a four-match winning streak.
As such, there isn't a huge amount of appeal in the 1×2 market here but backing each team to hit 3+ corners and each team to receive 10+ booking points looks like a nice alternative at 11/10 with SkyBet.
Hosts Ipswich are earning a shade under five flagkicks per 90 minutes, with Paul Cook's posse hitting the 3+ corner line in 15 of their opening 16 League One assignments of the campaign.
High-flying Oxford, on the other hand, have proven prominent in the corner rankings this term, averaging a league-high 7.07 corners per-game, a tally that increases to a lofty 8.17 on their travels.
Both clubs are renowned for their forward-thinking styles and that should lead to an entertaining encounter, so three corners apiece doesn't look like too much to ask of the pair.
With a closely-fought contest between two clubs in fine form anticipated, I'll complete the Bet Builder by backing each side to receive a minimum of 10+ booking points.
These two tightly matched teams are averaging in the region of 1.5 yellow cards per-game in League One term, not to mention referee Scott Oldham has awarded both sides at least one booking in each of his last four League One outings.
It's also worth noting that the aforementioned combination has clicked in three of the pair's last four collective League One assignments.
With all that in mind, the 11/10 (SkyBet) on each team to hit 3+ corners and each team to receive 10+ booking points makes plenty of appeal given that we have all the necessary ingredients required for a pulsating encounter at Portman Road.
- Each team 3+ Corners
- Each team 10+ Booking Points
- 11/10 (SkyBet)
