AFC Wimbledon vs Fleetwood match preview

AFC Wimbledon have drawn 3, won 1 and lost 1 of their last 5 league games and Fleetwood have won 2, lost 2 and drawn 1 of their last 5. AFC Wimbledon won the reverse fixture 1-0 and that game had 10 Fleetwood corners, 2 AFC Wimbledon corners , 2 Fleetwood yellow cards and 3 AFC Wimbledon yellows.

AFC Wimbledon have failed to score in 3 if their last 6 and Fleetwood have failed to score in their last 2 league games and 3 of their last 4. So on current form we won’t be backing goals. 

The season stats don’t point to any banker bets and Fleetwood have average 3.44 corners per game in their last 9 league games and Wimbledon average 4 corners per game in their last 12. So whilst it wouldn’t be a shock to see both teams have at least 3 corners, the stats are not strong enough for us to advise it as a good bet.

10 of the last 11 AFC Wimbledon league games have ended under 30 match booking points. Fleetwood have been more consistent and average 2.5 yellow cards per game in their last 4 league games. AFC Wimbledon opponents have only been given an average of 0.47 yellow cards per game in their last 17 league games.

There are no potential bets in this game.

Blackpool vs Gillingham match preview

Blackpool have won 3 and drawn 2 of their last 5 league games and Gillingham have also won 3 and drawn 2 of their last 5. Gillingham won the reverse fixture 2-0 with 7 Gillingham corners, 4 Blackpool corners and 3 Blackpool yellow cards. 

Blackpool have scored in 75% of their league games played this season and conceded in 47.22%. Gillingham have scored in 69.23% of theirs and conceded in 79.48%. 

Goals looks a good bet here. Gillingham have scored in all of their last 5 league games and average 2 goals per game in those 5 games. Gillingham have also scored in 15 of their last 18 league games and average 1.77 goals per game in those last 18 league games. Gillingham have conceded in 14 of their last 17 league games and they conceded an average of 1.35 goals per game in those games. Blackpool have scored in all of their last 5 league games and average 2 goals per game in those last 5 games. Blackpool have been good at the back in the second half of this season and have kept 9 clean sheets in their last 15 league games. With two sides both coring 2 goals per game in their last 5 league games, it looks highly likely both teams will score and the game will go over 2.5 goals.

Blackpool average just 2 corners per game in their last 3 league games and Gillingham have ended in exactly 3 corners in 9 of their last 15 league games. So Blackpool have been low and whilst Gillingham have been hitting 3 or more corners, they have been pretty close in allot of games. So on that form we will leave corners here.

Blackpool average just 0.85 yellow cards per game in their last 7 league games and 4 of the last 7 Blackpool league games ended with under 30 match booking points. Gillingham have been more consistent with cards lately and have been given 3 yellow cards in 3 of their last 4 league games. 5 of the last 10 Gillingham league games ended under 30 match booking points so when you add that to Blackpool’s recent form with bookings it’s not an angle we want to play here.

The possible bets in this game are

Over 1.5 goals

Both teams to score

Bristol Rovers vs Doncaster match preview

Bristol rovers have lost all of their last 5 league games and Doncaster have lost 3 and drawn 2 of their last 5. Doncaster won 4-1 when the sides met earlier this season in a game that had 7 Doncaster corners, 2 Rovers corners, 2 Doncaster yellow cards and 3 Rovers yellow cards.

We can keep this short as Bristol Rovers have been bad all season and Doncaster have massively lost their form. The recent stats give us absolutely nothing to go at so there is no recommended bet in this game.

Burton vs Swindon match preview

Burton have lost 2, drawn 2 and won 1 of their last 5 league games and Swindon have lost 3 and won 2 of their last 5. Swindon won 4-2 when the sides met earlier in the season and that game had 5 Swindon corners,6 Burton corners and 3 Swindon yellow cards. 

Burton have scored in 83.78% of their league games played this season and conceded in 78.37%. Swindon have scored in 65.78% of their league games and conceded in 89.47%. 

Swindon have scored in 8 of their last 10 league games and have conceded in 10 of their last 12. Burton have scored in 9 of their last 10 but have only conceded in 6 of their last 13, so know how to keep a clean sheet. Over 1.5 goals and both teams to score both look good bets here. 

The season stats on corners don’t give us a really strong angle to go at and Swindon have had 2 corners or less in 4 of their last 8 league games. 6 of the last 8 Swindon league games finished with 8 corners or less. Burton have been better but their corners numbers are not good enough for us to ignore Swindon current corner numbers. So we won’t be playing corners here. 

Bookings is the same as corners as Swindon have been given no cards in 4 of their last 7 league games and whilst Burton have been better, they only average 1.16 yellow cards per game in their last 6 league games. We won’t be backing cards here either.

The possible bets in this game are over 1.5 goals and both teams to score.

Hull vs Northampton match preview

Hull have won 3 and drawn 2 of their last 5 league games and Northampton have lost 2, drawn 1 and won 2 of their last 5. Hull won 2-0 when the sides met earlier this campaign and that game had 4 corners for each team and 2 yellow cards for each team. 

Northampton have failed to score in 3 of their last 5 and have also kept 3 clean sheets in their last 5 league games. Hull have conceded in 4 of their last 5 and have scored in all of their last 8 league games, scoring an average of 2 goals per game in those games. We think Hull will win this game and we believe there is a good chance they could win by a 2-0 or 3-0 score line.

Hull only average 3.42 corners per game in their last 7 league games and Northampton average just 1.50 corners per game in their last 4 league games. On current form we won’t be backing corners. 

Northampton have been given at least 1 card in 14 of their last 16 league games and they average 2.37 yellow cards per game in those last 16 games. Hull have been given at least 1 card in 5 of their last 6 league games and they average 1.66 yellow cards per game in those games. There looks to be a highlight chance that both teams pick up at least 1 card and the game will have at least 3.

The possible bets in this game are

Hull to win

Hull to win to nil

Hull to win 2-0 or 3-0

10+ booking points each team

Mk Dons vs Crewe match preview

Crewe have lost 3 and won 2 of their last 5 league games and MK Dons have won 4 and lost 1 of their last 5. 

MK Dons have scored and conceded in 78.94% of their league games this season and Crewe have scored in 72.97% of their league games and conceded in 78.37%. MK Dons have scored in all of their last 4 games and they scored an average of 2 goals per game in those last 4 games. MK Dons have also scored in 12 of their last 14 league games and they scored an average of 1.85 goals per game in those last 14 games. The Dons have also conceded in 11 of their last 13 league games and they conceded an average of 1.69 goals per game in those games. 

Crewe have scored in 20 of their last 23 league games and they scored an average of 1.39 goals per game in those games. Crewe have also conceded in 21 of their last 25 league games and they conceded an average of 1.56 goals per game in those last 25 games. 

Over 1.5 goals and both teams to score look very good bets in this game. 

Mk Dons average 6 corners per game in their last 8 league games and have taken 3 or more corners in 92.10% of their league games this season. Crewe have taken 3 or more corners in 83.78% of their league games played this season and average 6 corners per game in their last 10 league games. So it looks highly likely both teams take at least 3 corners here and it could be 4 or 5 corners each with the game going into double figures. 

Crewe have been given no cards in 3 of their last 7 league games and MK Dons only average 1.08 yellow cards per game in their last 12 league games. We won’t be playing bookings here. The potential bets in this game are

Over 1.5 goals

Oxford vs Accrington match preview

Oxford have lost 3 and won 2 of their last 5 league games and Accrington have lost 3, won 1 and drawn 1 of their last 5 league games. Oxford won 4-1 when the sides met earlier this season and that game had 6 Oxford corners, 5 Accrington corners, 3 Accrington yellow cards and 1 Accrington red card.

On current form goals and the result are far too risky to back as neither side can relied on to score, so we won’t be backing either of those markets. 

Oxford have taken 3 or more corners in 92.10% of their league games this season and Accrington have taken 3 or more in 94.59% of their league games. The recent stats on corners are promising and with 2 teams both over 90% on the season it looks a very strong bet that both teams take at least 3 corners here.

Accrington have been given at least 1 cars in 20 of their last 21 league games and they average 1.71 yellow cards per game in those games. Accrington average 2.25 yellow cards per game in their last 8 league games. Oxford have been given 8 yellow cards and 1 red card in their last 5 league games. So it looks likely that both teams pick up at least 1 card, Accrington in particular look likely to pick up more than 1 card and the game will likely have at least 3 cards.

The possible bets on this game are

3+ corners each team

10+ booking points each team

20+ Accrington booking points

30+ match booking points

Peterborough vs Sunderland match preview

Peterborough have won 3, lost 1 and drawn 1 of their last 5 league games and Sunderland have won 4 and drawn 1 of their last 5 league games. Sunderland won the first meeting earlier this season 1-0 with 8 Sunderland corners, 7 Peterborough corners and 3 Sunderland yellow cards.

Sunderland have scored in all of their last 19 league games and they average 1.84 goals per game in those last 19 league games. Peterborough have scored in 13 of their last 14 league games and they scored an average of 2.14 goals per game in those last 14 games. Both of these sides are no mugs defensively but the scoring stats are so strong that over 1.5 goals and both teams to score look good bets. 

Peterborough have taken 2 corners or less in 3 of their last 4 league games and the last 5 Peterborough league games all ended with 8 corners or less. Sunderland have been consistent all season but Peterborough’s drop in corners has come from them and in the number of corners they are giving away. It’s too early to write Peterborough of as a dodgy team to back on corners but we won’t be backing them until we see their slump end. So there is no cirner play in this game. 

Sunderland have been given 2 or more yellow cards in 5 of their last 6 league games and they average 2.3e yellow cards per game in those games. Peterborough have picked up no cards in their last 2 league games but they had picked up at least  1 card in all 5 league games before that and they average 1.28 yellow cards per game in their last 7 league games. Peterborough can’t be relied on to get a booking so we wouldn’t back a booking bet that relies on each team, but 4 of the last 7 Peterborough league games have had at least 3o match booking points and 5 of the last 6 Sunderland league games ended with 30 match booking points or more, so we feel it’s likely that this game will have at least 30 match booking points.

The potential bets on this game are

Both teams to score

Over 1.5 goals

30+ match booking points

Rochdale vs Ipswich match preview

Ipswich have won 2, lost 2 and drawn 1 of their last 5 league games and Rochdale have lost 3, won 1 and drawn 1 of their last 5 league games. Ipswich won 2-0 when the sides met earlier in the season in a game that had 7 Rochdale corners, 3 Ipswich corners, 2 Rochdale yellow cards and 1 Ipswich yellow card. 

It’s tough to say there won’t be goals buts it’s not a market we are going to be betting on. Ipswich have scored in 8 of their last 10 league games but they aren’t big scorers and only average 0.o1 goals per game in their last 12 league games. Rochdale have now scored in their last 3 but they failed to score at all in 7 league games before that so don’t look like a team to put faith in just yet. 

Rochdale have had 2 corners or less in 4 of their last 8 league games and whilst Ipswich are pretty consistent with corners, their numbers are not high enough for us to ignore Rochdale’s recent corners form. 

Ipswich have been given at least 1 card in 97.29% of their league games this season and Rochdale have been given at least 1 card in 75.67% of theirs. Rochdale have been given at least 1 card in 6 of their last 7 league games and they average 1.57 yellow cards per game in those last 7 league games. Ipswich have been given at least 1 card in all of their last 4 league games and they average 2 yellow cards per game in those last 4 games. The last 4 Ipswich league games have seen 18 yellow cards for them and their opponents. So we think its highly likely that both teams pick up at least 1 card and the game will have 30+match booking points.

The possible bets in this games are 

 10+ booking points each team and 30+match booking points

Shrewsbury vs Plymouth match preview

Plymouth have lost 2, won 2 and drawn 1 of their last 5 league games and Shrewsbury have lost 2, drawn 2 and won 1 of their last 5 league games. It ended 1-1 when the sides met earlier this season and that game had 3 Shrewsbury corners, 4 Plymouth corners and 1 Plymouth yellow card. 

Shrewsbury have scored in 11 of their last 13 league games and they average 1.30 goals per game in those last 13 games. Shrewsbury have conceded in 11 of their last 12 league games and they conceded an average of 1.25 goals per game in those last 12 games. Plymouth have scored in all of their last 4 league games and they scored an average of 1.50 goals per game in those 4 games. Plymouth have kept 2 clean sheets in their last 3 games but they have conceded in 8 of their last 10 and they conceded an average of 1.70 goals per game in those last 10 league games. 

Plymouth have scored in 74.35% of their league games this season and Shrewsbury have scored in 80.55% of their league games played. Over 1.5 goals looks a strong bet and both teams to score has a great chance looking at the season and recent stats. It would also be no surprise to see this game finish in a 1-1 draw as both sides are consistent without being prolific and may play out another 1-1 draw as they did in the reverse fixture. 

Plymouth average 3.80 corners per game in their last 10 league games and they ended with 2 corners or less in 4 of those games, Plymouth have actually taken no corners in 2 of their last 9 league games. Shrewsbury average just 2.70 corners per game in their last 10 league games so there is nothing to go at on corners. 

Shrewsbury have been given no cards in their last 2 league games and Plymouth have been given no cards in 3 of their last 7 league games. So on current form we can’t back cards with confidence.

The possible bets on this game are

Over 1.5 goals

Both teams to score

1-1 correct score

Wigan vs Portsmouth match preview

Wigan have lost 2, drawn 2 and won 1 of their last 5 league games and Portsmouth have won 3 and lost 2 of their last 5 league games. Wigan won the reverse fixture 2-1 with 8 Portsmouth corners, 1 Wigan corner and 2 Wigan yellow cards. 

Portsmouth have scored exactly 2 goals in each of their last 3 league games and have conceded in all of their last 8 league games, conceding an average of 1.62 goals per game in those last 8 games. Wigan have failed to score in their last 2 league games but scored in all of their 4 before that and still scored an average of 1.16 goals per game in those last 6 games. Wigan have conceded in 9 of their last 12 league games and they conceded an average of 1.50 goals per game in those last 12 league games. On current form goals look a good bet with over 1.5 goals looking a strong bet and both teams to score also having a good chance. 

Wigan are very inconsistent with corners, in their last 7 league games they have taken 10 corners twice, 3 corners 3 times and 2 corners once. Those spikes are heavily boosting their average so are not a team that we would trust with corners. Portsmouth have been better but they are not high enough in the stats for us to ignore Wigan numbers or confidently believe that they will take more corners than Wigan. So we won’t be backing corners. 

Wigan have been given 7 yellow cards in their last 3 league games and 4 of the last 5 Wigan league games have ended with over 30+ match booking points. Portsmouth are less consistent and the last 2 Portsmouth league games have both finished under 30 match booking points and 4 of the last 8 Portsmouth league games went under 30 match booking points. Portsmouth have also been given no yellow cards in 2 of their last 5 league games and although they were given a red card in one of those games we can’t rely on a red card to cover a bet here. It’s a tough one as we can’t say there won’t be cards but there is enough doubt for us to leave them here.

The possible bets in this game are over 1.5 goals and both teams to score.
