League: ENGLAND: Championship – Round 4
Match: 19:45 Derby – Ipswich
Prediction: Over 1.5 Goals
Average odds: 1.36
Bookmaker: Bwin
Result: 2:0 WIN!!!


After a great start under Frank Lampard, Derby have slipped to two consecutive defeats. They host an Ipswich side which finished 15 points behind them in 2017/18, and is also still adapting to a new managerial regime under Paul Hurst, taking just two points from the first nine available in 2018/19.
In their last home game, the ‘Rams’ (DER) missed a golden opportunity to make it four straight home Championship wins (for the first time since December 2016), losing by an astounding 4-1 scoreline to Leeds.
Derby’s record against Ipswich at Pride Park suggests they will need to work hard to get back on track. Ipswich have won their last three visits here, and another will mark the first ever time the Suffolk club has won four in a row at Pride Park.
The recent head-to-head record really does favour Ipswich here. In the last seven head-to-head (H2H) encounters between the sides, the home side on the day has lost every one, firing a blank in all but one of those seven games.
Players to watch: Martyn Waghorn (DER) faces his old club after scoring 16 goals in 44 Championship appearances for Ipswich last season.
Gwion Edwards (IPS) has already been involved in creating and assisting a goal this term. The £700k man is already making a name for himself in Suffolk in his short time so far.
Stat attack: In addition to winning their last three at Pride Park, Ipswich are also unbeaten at Pride Park in ten league visits (W7, D3).
Six of Derby’s last seven home games against Ipswich have seen under 2.5 goals scored in total.
Ipswich have kept a clean sheet in five of their last seven visits here.
