Third-placed Ipswich Town will play relegation favourites Morecambe in League One this Tuesday, as the race for the bottom three heats up with four potential danger zone sides. The hosts have 14 wins from 27 games played, but their USP still remains the 49 goals they have scored alone in the time frame which makes Ipswich the second-best attack to grace the English third tier this year. Having scored almost half the number of goals that Ipswich have, Morecambe has failed to win 20 of the 25 games played in the 2022-23 season. Their main advantage in the bottom pile remains the fact that the visitors have played one game fewer than the other relegation zone teams, and even if they get a point miraculously at Portman Road on Tuesday, it could be of huge significance in this game of thin margins.

Ipswich Town vs Morecambe Betting Pick #1: BTTS

Everyone is aware how Ipswich are favourites to win this game, but there are some laurels Morecambe brings to this game alone. The away side has won their last three games played. Moreover, Ipswich have conceded against each of their last five opponents now leading to a BTTS situation in each of the last three League One outings. The last three meetings between the two sides have seen both sides score too. Priced at 2.20 odds on Tuesday, BTTS thus becomes the bets bet to go for, in this game of two halves.

Pick #2: Ipswich to win & Over 2.5 goals

We believe that even if Morecambe gets a goal back to celebrate, it will only be a consolation. The third-placed League One hosts have enough firepower and head-to-head advantage to outscore their relegation zone opponents and win this game on Tuesday. Either way, a third goal will be the minimum required for Ipswich Town to win all three points and it can thus become a great ACCA for this week's clash - Home/Over 2.5.

Ipswich Town Team News

One-time European and English champions, but currently third-tier side Ipswich Town will be playing with no injuries or suspensions ahead of this Morecambe visit. The home side signed 23-year-old striker George Hirst from Leicester City earlier this season and he becomes a natural starter for every game in League One this year. His Premier League compatriot Leif Davis, who was signed from Leeds United too this season, has found it tough to become a first-team regular as of yet, but Irish manager Kieran McKenna has praised him a number of times and looks forward to seeing him in more action.

Morecambe

Morecambe Team News

Morecambe have had a squad overhaul coming into this 2022-23 season with as much as five first team players coming in from new recruitments. Starting with goalkeeper, Connor Ripley, who was signed from Preston North-End recently and captains the side too in the absence of right-back Donald Love. Centre-back Jacob Bedeau from Burnley, defensive midfielder Jensen Weir from Brighton and another midfielder Liam Shaw from Celtic are all great reinforcements for the visiting side to survive the League One relegation race in 2023, so that the new crop could build upon success from next season on. Scottish coach Derek Adams has no injury or suspension woes ahead of this trip to Portman Road.

Players to watch: Jensen Weir (8 goals), Kieran Phillips (7 goals and 2 assists), Liam Shaw (2 goals and 2 assists)
