Sunderland vs Leeds United (FA Cup, 04.01.2015)

Sunderland meet Leeds in their FA Cup third round match where both teams are heavily expected to score. The hosts are on the 14th place in Premier League with 20 points, while Leeds have 24 points out of the same number of matches in the Championship where they are on the 20th place, two points behind Rotherham United.

The Black Cats have only one win in 10 matches in Premier League, which is why the FA Cup is tipped to be the perfect opportunity to turn the luck around and start winning again. Lee Cattermole was confirmed to miss this match due to a groin injury, while Bridcutt was cleared to play following a concussion. Patrick van Aanholt and Reveillere are expected to return to training next week. Leeds United are unable to win against Sunderland since 2004, and even if the Black Cats are somewhat specialists in draws, the bookies still favor them to win.
Leeds United crashed last year against Rochdale, and the year before that against Manchester City, right after they eliminated Tottenham. Connor Wickham and Steven Fletcher are your main choices for the goalscorer market since both players have 2.37 odds to score anytime with Bet365. Adam Johnson and Jozy Altidore have 2.87 odds in the same market, while for Leeds Mirco Antenucci with 4.00 odds to score. Sunderland have been given 1.28 odds to qualify as opposed to Leeds’ 3.50 in the same market.

Bet365 also gave Sunderland 1.60 odds to win the match, Leeds got 6.00 and a draw has 4.20 odds. Sunderland with a -1.0 handicap has 2.00 odds, Leeds with a +1.0 has 1.85 odds and over 2.5 goals 1.85 odds. We are going to bet 7 units on Sunderland scoring in both halves with 2.37 odds from Bet365.
