Our Prediction:

Ipswich will win

MK Dons – Ipswich Match Prediction | 17-09-2019 14:45

Kieran Agard demonstrated some strong hold-up play before finding Alex Gilbey, who switched play over to Conor McGrandles. The midfielder controlled the ball on his chest but was dispossessed as he made his way deep into the penalty area. Supporters inside Stadium MK got their first glimpse of the attacking play that Tisdale will be looking to bring to the Club inside the opening five minutes.

Were therefore expecting to see a fairly comfortable 3-1 winning margin for Ipswich Town at the end of the match. Our assessment is that Ipswich Town will probably dominate possession and create several successful chances. At the same time, AFC Wimbledon may well struggle to find the back of the net although we do reckon that they could well end up being dangerous at times. Our Ipswich Town v AFC Wimbledon predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below (plus the best game odds).

Try as they did, promotion-favourites Ipswich were unable to register their second win of the season last time out, though as they found themselves a goal down late on, a share of the spoils probably wont have disappointed boss Paul Lambert too much. Wimbledon, who got their first point on Saturday, go to Portman Road in search of their first win of the campaign.

Like Saturdays hosts, Posh, whove conceded in three out of four, shipping six goals in total, havent looked great at the back, but their recent attacking efforts are positive ahead of a match against a Dons side that has given plenty away of late. Darren Fergusons men showed that theyve got what it takes to hurt teams when scoring twice against Ipswich last weekend, while they continued to look useful in the final third on Tuesday evening, as they notched twice on route to victory against Southend, creating 1.59 expected goals for in the process.

Cards & Corners

Having won each of their first two home matches, Paul Tisdales men will fancy themselves to get the better of Peterborough, who come into this game of the back of their first win of the season, on Saturday. After the heartbreak of losing late on at the weekend, MK Dons made a winning return to their own patch, as they got the better of a Lincoln side that had won three out of three.

In terms of quality, Ipswich are undoubtedly a better side than Wimbledon, while theyve also done a better job of outplaying their opponents in terms of both shots and chances created. That said, we shouldnt expect the hosts to run riot, as theyve not exactly been overly flamboyant in the final third, while Wimbledon, for all their issues, dont often receive a battering. From a betting point of view, Ipswich to Win & Under 3.5 Goals looks a solid option.

Despite outplaying Sunderland just over a week ago, Ipswich conceded, while they shipped twice against Peterborough last time out. In truth, its been a bit of a mixed start for the side that came into the campaign as title favourites; theyve certainly not been poor, but their attacking efforts have been a bit subdued, while they seem to be developing a habit of conceding goals when on top.

For bets on Ipswich 1xBet provides the best odds so far with 2.59. In the last five years there has been no encounter between the two teams. At the moment the bookmakers trend to a home win by MK Dons. A bet of 10 will result in a win of 25,70 (which equals 15,70 profit). The highest odds for a home win are at the moment offered by 1xBet with 2.57.

Bookmakers make the home side strong favourites for this and while the real table has four points between these sides, the expected goals data suggests they should be level on three points. In addition, Kwesi Appiah has two for the season and carries the main goal threat for the visitors and looks worth an anytime scorer interest. With these sides having already drawn 2-2 in the League Cup this season we think the visitors can get something from this. The draw is a real runner so back AFC Wimbledon in the draw no bet market which returns if it finishes all-square.
