Ipswich Town are increasingly looking likely for relegation and they take on the weekend, who are chasing for promotion, at the Portman Road. Derby County remain on the verge of a top six place with the team just behind Bristol City on goal difference. Meanwhile, Ipswich remains stuck at the bottom of the table as they have been for the majority of the campaign. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Ipswich lost for the fourth consecutive match day, as Norwich City were able to earn a comfortable 3-0 victory at Carrow Road. Ipswich’s only success of 2019 came against Rotherham at Portman road.
Derby County were able to manage a comfortable 2-0 win over Hull City but it was only the third victory for the team in the last six league matches.
The reverse fixture between Ipswich and Derby produced a 2-0 victory for the latter at the Pride Park Stadium while the recent meeting at Portman Road also produced a victory for the Derby – albeit with a 2-1 score. Our betting tips and predictions for this match expect a win for the visitors.

Derby are just goal difference away from sneaking into the play-off places and the club has been able to put together a decent run of form over the last few matches. Even though Frank Lampard’s men have achieved a lot of cup success this year, the team will be judged on their ability to get promoted. Ipswich have been big strugglers in the 2018-19 campaign and even the appointment of Paul Lambert has been unable to salvage anything for the campaign. It is highly unlikely that Ipswich will avoid relegation with the team nine points away from safety. Our preview would pick a win for Derby County.

Correct Score odds
Derby County have been offensively good this season and Frank Lampard has been able to get great performances from some of the unexpected names this season. Ipswich Town have the worst defensive record with 54 goals conceded this season and they are the only team to have conceded more than 50 goals so far. However, recent matches have seen an improvement in this aspect. Our correct score prediction would pick a 2-0 win for Derby.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Derby are aiming for a third consecutive win over Ipswich, whose period of dominance against Derby came during the days of Mick McCarthy. Despite home advantage, the Tractor Boys are not in a good position to score goals and the team has returned with a paltry four goals from the last six matches. Our total goals prediction would opt for under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Martin Waghorn has been in brilliant form for Derby County over the last few weeks. He has been able to get four goals in his last five appearances across all competitions – including a brace against Hull City during the weekend. Even though the forward has been a disappointment with only four goals in 21 appearances for Derby, there are signs of the striker hitting form. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Martin Waghorn.
