Fulham v Sunderland Odds: Berbatov dominates the goalscorer betting markets

Sunday afternoon's live match comes from Craven Cottage as Fulham host Sunderland and there couldn't be a bigger contrast in the two sides' style and recent fortunes. Fulham have enjoyed a decent start to the Premier League season while providing goals galore but Sunderland have been virtually impotent in front of goal as they plummet towards the relegation zone.

Martin O'Neill's Sunderland side have come in for plenty of criticism after taking just nine points from their league games so far and the bookies don't fancy things will get any better this weekend as Ladbrokes price them 4/1 in the match odds. Fulham are 8/11 odds on favourites, while the draw is 5/2, as Martin Jol's men look to push on.

Fulham earned a hugely creditable 3-3 draw at Arsenal last weekend and they are now the second highest scorers in the top-flight, behind only Manchester United. Jol's side have been prolific, scoring at least two goals in each of their last three, and it could be worth a look at the 5/6 on offer for them to score over 1.5 goals in Sunday's match.

Dimitar Berbatov has been the chief threat of late, scoring five goals and setting up three in his seven league appearances, and he is 4/1 favourite to score first, as well as an 11/10 punt to score anytime. He has been an inspired signing and Ladbrokes go 7/4 for Berbatov to score in a Fulham win.

Fulham look worthy favourites at this stage as they have only lost once at home this season, to Manchester City, while they have won five and lost one of the last eight Fulham v Sunderland fixtures. Jol will have to do without the suspended Chris Baird, while Mahamadou Diarra is a doubt, but it is Martin O'Neill who has all the problems heading into the game.

Sunderland have failed to win any of their last six matches, while they are also winless in their last six away games, albeit drawing four. Scoring goals has been their biggest issue and Adam Johnson became the first Sunderland player other than Steve Fletcher to score a league goal this season as he was on target in the 2-1 defeat to Everton last weekend.

Fletcher, 7/1 to score first, remains the focal point of their attack but he and Lee Cattermole are both injury doubts for Saturday. If they are out it would be a huge blow to their already limp goalscoring threat, particularly as Sunderland have failed to score in three of their last four games. They have actually only managed to score two in their last eight in matches against Fulham and Fulham are 6/4 to keep a clean sheet this weekend.

Fulham will fancy their chances of winning the game and they are 14/1 to win 3-1 in the latest betting with Ladbrokes which could be worth a look as they look to enhance their own league position while pushing Sunderland closer to the bottom three.
