Sunderland vs Preston North End: Free Betting Predictions by Football Ground Guide

England Championship predictions by Football Ground Guide are based on extensive research and analysis. We have settled on the best Sunderland vs Preston North End predictions as follows:

Sunderland to open the scoring

Sunderland is our favourite to score first in this game. They have hit the back of the net 16 times in ten games. They also have home support against Preston in this clash. The visitors have failed to score as many goals after scoring only 3 goals in 10 matches. And while Preston has leaked only 4 goals in ten games, both sides are rested after the international break, so expect a highly offensive approach from both ends.

Sunderland to win

Our second tip for Sunderland vs Preston North End is home win. Sunderland’s scoring run is their main advantage in this duel with Preston North End, not to mention massive home backing. We predict Sunderland victory.

Under 2.5 goals

Sunderland has the prerequisite conditions to win the game. However, they face a highly defensive outfit in Preston North. Despite being 15th on the Championship table, Preston has conceded the least number of goals (4). The visitors have 7 clean sheets, a defensive record we expect will contribute to a low scoreline in this game.

Sunderland vs Preston North End Fixture Preview


Sunderland’s main challenge this season has been consistency. They have failed to get back to back wins after ten games. Four wins, three wins and three losses, means the hosts have split their run into nearly same outcomes. Interestingly, only one of Sunderland’s four wins has been at home, so this clash with Preston North End is an opportunity to get a second home win this season. They only previous victory against the visitor was away from home.

Preston North End

Preston North End has had the challenge of winning matches. They have also failed to impress offensively, another shortcoming that could deny the visitors a win in this trip. While the last encounter with Sunderland was away win of 2-0 for Preston in March 2018, this duel could prove more difficult after only one victory in the last 7 games. More interesting is that Preston’s two wins so far have been on the road.
