It's tense at the top of the Championship with Ipswich battling Leicester and Leeds for those two two golden tickets into the Premier League promised land.

And with the Foxes losing and Leeds drawing on Tuesday, the door is ajar for the Tractor Boys to climb back to the top of the table

Watford are next up - safe in mid-table with no place to go up or down really and on the back of three straight draws, although two of those being against Leeds and West Brom shows they're still not to be taken lightly.

Leg 1: Over 3.5 goals

It's 31/20 on over 3.5 goals and it's a hugely regular occurrence at Portman Road, with 14 of Ipswich's 20 home league games having three goals or more in this season.

Watford don't have anything to play for really and can cut loose if needed , while Ipswich's home games actually average 4.4 goals per game this season.

Goals have been flying in all over the place and there's no reason that can't continue.

Leg 2: Ipswich over 1.5 cards

Watford and Ipswich rank fifth and sixth in the league heading into this round of fixtures with 93 and 92 bookings respectively.

So we'll look at a couple of cards bets to go along with our goals - and over 1.5 is the number for Ipswich cards at 4/71.57.

The hosts have been shown two cards or more in 14 of 20 home matches in the Championship and with the pressure of the promotion on they'll likely exceed that here but we'll play it relatively safe.

They had four in the reverse fixture at Vicarage Road.

Leg 3: Watford over 1.5 cards

And we'll back Watford to join them, with their price for over 1.5 cards 4/111.36.

The Hornets picked up two cards against Ipswich last time out - and away from home they've had at least two cards 15 times this season.

Back over 3.5 goals & over 1.5 cards for both teams @ 11/26.50
