Match analysis from Sunderland betting partner Bet Butler.

 Sunderland 2.05 | Draw 3.6 | Chelsea 4.2

Sunderland are undefeated in their five games against promoted teams in the league under Martin O’Neil, with three wins out of three at home. 

Sunderland have been playing better than recent results imply and there’s cracking value in the
Black Cats at 2.05.

All three of Sunderland’s last three home games against promoted opposition were won by two goals or more, with 2/3 clean sheets. Correct score Sunderland 3 – 0 is a tasty 23.0

Not only do Sunderland have a fine record against promoted sides under O’Neill, they have also scored first in all of those games, winning at half time and full time in four of those five games. Sunderland Half time/ Full time at 3.3 is a great way to boost the home win odds.

Sunderland’s home matches against promoted teams have tended towards goals, as have all matches when a side in the bottom six is hosting a promoted side. Over 2.5 match goals looks the value bet here at 2.1                                                             

Steven Fletcher is the most likely first scorer at 5.5 if he passes another fitness test. Connor Wickham is 7.5, Louise Saha 8.0 and Sessegnon 8.5
