Southampton v Ipswich
Tuesday 19:45 (Live on Sky Sports Red Button)

In the Ukrainian Premier League yesterday, Dynamo Kiev kept their first clean sheet of the campaign - beating visiting Vorskla 2-0 to take down our BTTS bet.

We're on home turf today for the Championship game between ninth-placed Southampton and third-placed Ipswich. The Saints have conceded nine times across their last two outings and we reckon there could be more goals on the way tonight.

Friday night's 4-1 home loss to Leicester was the third time in five league games that the Saints had conceded at least four times. Home and away, they're yet to keep a clean sheet through the first six rounds of the campaign.

Three games at St Mary's so far this season have finished 4-4, 2-1 and 1-4. Ipswich look well placed to help the hosts continue that high-scoring trend.

The Tractor Boys have won 5/6 home and away to this point, despite conceding six times across the last three. At the other end, Kieran McKenna's men have hit 12 in six. With shaky defences meeting potent attacks at both ends of the pitch, we like the odds-against price on Over 3.0 Goals in the Goal Lines market.

Back Over 3.0 Goals @ 2.26/5
