Fulham and Sunderland look to improve on good starts

Fulham v Sunderland
English Premier League
Sunday, 6 December 2009
Craven Cottage
Kickoff: 15:00 GMT

Although Tottenham have also thrilled goals buyers in recent weeks, the more competitive game on Sunday, and the one that will split more buyers and sellers on the spreads, is likely to be Fulham v Sunderland.

Buyers of both teams’ win index spreads previously in the season might be happily surprised at their current standings of tenth and eighth in the table, but it’s the single point that separates the clubs which will throw many of this game’s spread bettors.

Buyers of Fulham’s win index spread might be surprised that the Cottagers haven’t beaten the Black Cats in this corner of West London for nearly four years.

Sunderland’s head-to-head record of W3-D2-L1 in their last six meetings will serve sellers of Fulham’s supremacy spread better, although the same spread punters should also take into account Roy Hodgson’s far superior home record of W4-D1-L2 this season compared to Steve Bruce’s W1-D1-L5 away.

Sellers of the booking index spread will be pleased to see that last season’s two meetings produced only two bookings overall and that the Cottagers have averaged only 13pts on the index spread make-up at home this season.
