Ipswich lost their opener but given that they were at Reading, one of the teams tipped for a title tilt, Mick McCarthy’s men can be forgiven for emerging from that clash empty-handed.
Moreover, the Tractor Boys actually gave a good account of themselves at the Madejski Stadium and eventually only lost to a tremendous 25-yard strike from Danny Guthrie, so they won’t be downhearted.
Millwall’s first game saw them succumb to a late strike against promoted Yeovil so they won’t be quite as satisfied with their afternoon’s work and with that in mind, Ipswich – who could be a surprise package this term – look cracking value at 23/20 (BetVictor) to get a win on the board at the expense of the Lions at Portman Road.
Middlesbrough’s away record last season was appalling and after they opened this campaign with a defeat at home to Leicester, it’s hard not to feel their travelling woes might continue.
This weekend Tony Mowbray’s troops go to Charlton, Boylesports’ 6/5 favourites and it’s hard to see past a decent Addicks outfit.
Double on Ipswich and Charlton – 7/2 (Ladbrokes)
