SlipsTips returns with his best Bet Builder from Wednesday's depleted EFL coupon, with Ipswich's League One match-up with Wycombe under the microscope.
Ipswich vs Wycombe (Wednesday, 19:45)
Kieran McKenna will be in the dug-out for the first time when Ipswich welcome Wycombe to Portman Road on Wednesday night.
Having failed to live up to pre-season expectations as well as finding themselves in the midst of a six-game winless streak across all competitions, the Tractor Boys recently parted company with Paul Cook.
Wycombe, by contrast, are right in the thick of a wide-open race for promotion and roll into Suffolk unbeaten in their last five tier-three tussles.
Despite, their differing fortunes in League One this season, this is a difficult match to call and it's therefore a case of rinse and repeat with my selection of each team to hit 3+ corners and each team to receive 10+ booking points at even-money (1/1) with SkyBet.
Hosts Ipswich are earning a shade under five flagkicks per 90 minutes, a tally that increases to 5.75 when McKenna's new charges are playing in front of the Portman Rod faithful.
The Chairboys, on the other hand, have proven more prominent in the corner ranking than their opponents thus far, with Gareth Ainsworth's guests averaging a healthy 5.95 per-game and hitting a minimum of three corners in all but two of their 22 league games to date.
With that in mind, coupled with the likelihood of a decent degree of goalmouth action here, three corners apiece doesn't look like too much to ask of two teams who are in desperate need of points for different reasons.
To round off the Bet Builder I'm going with each side to receive 10+ booking points in what should be a closely-fought contest under the lights.
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 Barrot – who is flashing an average of four yellows per-game in League One this season – has awarded both sides at least one booking in four of his last five outings when officiating at this level.
It's also worth noting that the aforementioned combination clicked during last month's reverse fixture and that only adds to the appeal of supporting the same even-money (SkyBet) play when the pair reconvene at Portman Road on Wednesday night.
- Each team 3+ Corners
- Each team 10+ Booking Points
- 1/1 (SkyBet)
