Coventry vs Sunderland: top free betting tips
Coventry City will be looking forward to resuming their winning form in the upcoming EFL Championship engagement on Saturday, 26 August. The Black Cats enter Coventry Building Society Arena after a much-awaited victory against Rotherham United in the English second division.
Match result prediction: Coventry to win
Coventry City have not found a winning run at the start of the EFL Championship, winning just one of the three matches. However, the Sky Blues have won three of their last five league outings at Coventry Building Society Arena. The Singers have also outclassed Sunderland by winning four of the last five H2Hs in front of the home crowd, ending one in a draw. On the other hand, the Black Cats lost the previous two consecutive road fixtures in EFL Championship. Hence, we set Coventry as our favourite to take the lead in this game.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Four of the previous five H2Hs of these two teams have finished with both teams on the scoring side. Coventry City have found the back of the net in each of the previous four fixtures while keeping only one clean sheet. Sunderland also notched goals with consistency in the same duration. However, the Black Cats have been unable to limit the rivals from scoring in any of those matches. Therefore, we can expect the teams to share a BTTS outcome in this encounter.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Coventry
In the only home fixture this season against Middlesbrough, Coventry City scored three goals. The Sky Blues have also rattled the net multiple times in three of the previous five fixtures at Coventry Building Society Arena. On the other hand, Sunderland has notched just one goal in three of the previous four matches. Defensively, the Black Cats have conceded two goals in two of the recent three EFL Championship games. Considering these facts, we predict a 2-1 margin for the Sky Blues before the referee blows the full-time whistle.
