Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Tuesday’s football game at Spotland Stadium pits together Rochdale and Sunderland. The Dale made a slow start to the season, but their recent displays are surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of upcoming challenges. Rochdale aim to build on back-to-back wins over Burton and Shrewsbury, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against the promotion-chasing Black Cats.
Sunderland aim to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Portsmouth in the League One derby, and even though midfielder Luke O’Nien is out of contention through suspension, bookies see the visitors as favourites to win the Spotland Stadium clash. Considering that Rochdale suit Sunderland, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Black Cats. You should bear in mind that Sunderland emerged triumphant in each of their previous four meetings with Rochdale in all competitions.
