SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Peterborough's encounter with Ipswich in English League One on Saturday afternoon.
Peterborough United vs Ipswich Town (Saturday, 15:00)
Arguably the standout fixture from this weekend's set of English league One matches takes place at London Road on Saturday afternoon, as Peterborough United play host to Ipswich Town.
Darren Ferguson’s hosts tightened their grip on a much-sought after playoff spot with a 2-1 win at Accrington Stanley on Tuesday night, meaning they start the weekend housed in fifth-place.
As for second-placed Ipswich, they continued their march towards automatic promotion by staging a second-half comeback to earn a 2-1 victory over Port Vale in midweek.
With both teams in fine fettle, I'm going to steer clear of the outright betting here and instead dip into Sky Bet's corners market and take the even-money (1/1) on each team to hit 3+ corners and each team to receive 10+ booking points.
Peterborough have been fairly strong corner performers this season, averaging 5.49 per-game, a tally that increases to 6.48 when going about their business at their Weston Homes Stadium base.
Ipswich, on the other hand, are averaging a league-high 7.13 corners per-90 minutes in English League One this season, with the title-chasing Tractor Boys covering the 3+ corner line in 94% of their league games this season so far.
Therefore, three corners apiece doesn't look like too much to ask of two clubs right in the thick of the race for promotion, but to round off the Bet Builder, I'll go with each side to receive 10+ booking points in what should be a keenly-contested affair.
Peterborough have averaged 1.40 yellow cards per-game this season to date, while Ipswich’s figure is marginally higher at 1.64.
What's more, referee Gavin Ward is dishing out a shade over four cards per-game in the third tier this term, with the EFL whistler awarding both sides a card in seven of the last eight league games he has taken charge of.
With all that in mind, coupled with the fact that this Bet Builder would have banked in each of Ipswich's last four League One road games, siding with the same selection on Saturday stands out at evens (SkyBet).
- Each team 3+ Corners
- Each team 10+ Booking Points
