Leyton Orient vs Scunthorpe match preview

Both sides have lost 3, won 1 and drawn 1 of their last 5 games. The meeting earlier in the season ended 2-0 to Scunthorpe with 8 Leyton Orient corners, 3 Scunthorpe corners and 5 Leyton Orient yellow cards. The best bet in this game is Leyton Orient to have more corners. Scunthorpe average 3.7 corners a game in their last 10 game and gave away an average of 5.4 corners per game in those 10 games. Leyton Orient averaged 5.10 corners in their last 10 games and gave away an average of 4.4 corners per game. Add this to the fact that Leyton Orient won the reverse fixture when they were away 8-3 in corners and we believe with home advantage there is a good chance they will have more corners. Goals is risky as Leyton Orient average just 0.3 goals per game in their last 1o games and have failed to score in 10 of those games. Scunthorpe have failed to score in 3 of their last 5 games so all in all goals looks very risky.  Scunthorpe have been given no yellow cards in 3 of their last 4 games, and whilst Leyton Orient can usually be relied on for bookings they are not high enough in the numbers for us to ignore the fact Scunthorpe have not been getting cards in recent games. So the best bet is Leyton Orient to have the most corners.

Carlisle vs Bradford match preview

Carlisle are winless in their last 8 and have lost 6 of those 8, whilst Bradford have won 10 , drawn 4 and lost 2 of their last 16 games. When the sides met earlier in the season Carlisle won 1-0 with 6 Bradford corners, 5 Carlisle corners and 2 Carlisle yellow cards. Bradford suffered 5 defeats in a row earlier in the season and since then have gone on a 16 game run where they have only lost 2 games and won 10. Bradford have scored in 14 of those 16 games, and have scored in all of their last 10 games, plus they have conceded in 7 of their last 10 games. Carlisle have also scored in 14 of their last 16 games and have conceded 16 goals in their last 8 games. Goals looks likely in this game with over 1.5 goals looking very likely and there being a very good chance that both teams will score. Corners looks slightly risky as Bradford have had 2 corners or less in 3 of their last 7 games and whilst Carlisle are higher on the averages they seem to have peaks and valleys and are quite unpredictable in terms of the number of corners they will have. For this reason we think it’s worth leaving corners alone in this one. Carlisle average 2 yellow cards per game in their last 13 games and Carlisle opponents have had at least 1 card in all of their last 14 games. Bradford have had at least 1 card in all of their last 9 games and average 1.55 yellow cards per game in those 9 games. Bradford opponents have had at least 1 card in all of their last 11 games and average 1.54 yellow cards per game in those 11 games. So goals and bookings look the best bet with it very likely the game will see at least 2 goals and a card for each team, with both teams to score and 3 cards in the match also looking like good bets that will have more generous odds.

Crawley vs Mansfield match preview

Crawley have won 4 and lost 4 of their last 8 games and Mansfield have won 2 and lost 5 of their last 7 games. It ended 3-3 when these sides first met this season with 10 Mansfield corners, 7 Crawley corners and 2 Crawley yellow cards. Despite the goal fest when these sides last met it looks risky to back a high number of goals in this one. Mansfield have failed to score in 4 of their last 6 and Crawley only average 0.88 goals a game in their last 9 games and Crawley have kept 6 clean sheets in their last 11 games. Corners also looks risky due to the inconsistencies both teams show in their corner count. They have both hit double figures on their own at multiple times this season but both also regularly have games when they are around the 3 corners mark or below. So as corners is almost a could be anything bet in this game, so we feel it is either a bet to leave out or to keep stakes small and go for a higher amount at bigger odds. Neither side is on the high end of the booking points either so this is a game that we believe you may be best watching from the side-lines, but if you are having a bet we advise low risk and high reward bets in this one

Exeter vs Cheltenham match preview

Exeter have won 5, drawn 2 and lost 1 of their last 5 games whilst Cheltenham have won 7, lost 1 and drawn 2 of their last 10 games. Cheltenham won 5-3 when these sides met for the first time this season with 3 Cheltenham corners, 6 Exeter corners, 2 Cheltenham yellow cards and 1 Exeter yellow card. This is a game where goals are risky because whilst both teams can score for fun they are both no mugs defensively. Cheltenham have kept 6 clean sheets in their last 10 games and Exeter have kept clean sheets in all of their last 3 games. So it really depends on who gets on top as if it’s the attackers like in the first meeting between these two then we could be in for any amount of goals, but if the defences get on top then it could easily end 0-0 or be decided by a solitary goal. Corners is risky as Cheltenham have had 2 corners or less in 5 of their last 9 games and Exeter have finished with just 1 corner in 2 of their last 6 games. Exeter have finished with no cards in their last 2 games and Cheltenham have finished with no cards in 4 of their last 8 games. So the only possible betting angle for us here is goals, and again this is a game that we believe it is worth keeping your risk low and your reward high. As there is too much doubt to go all in on even 2 or 3 goals in the match, but if the attacks get on top then we could be in for another 8 goal thriller.

Forest Green vs Cheltenham match preview

Forest Green have won 6, drawn 2 and lost 2 of their last 10 games and Harrogate have won 7 and lost 3 of their last 10 games. The reverse fixture ended 1-0 to Forest Green with 8 corners for each side and just 1 yellow card for Forest Green. Forest Green have scored in 24 of their last 26 games and Harrogate have scored in 10 of their last 12 games. With both teams scoring record you would have to say it looks likely there will be a couple of goals at least and there is a good chance that both teams will score, however it is worth noting that Harrogate have kept 4 clean sheets in their last 5 games and 6 of the last 8 Harrogate games have finished 1-0 (4 wins and 2 losses by a 1-0 score line). There is no standout bet in this game with at least 1 of the teams being inconsistent on cards or corners. So for those reasons this is not a game where we would recommend a bet

Morecambe vs Newport match preview

Morecambe have won 4, lost 1 and drawn 1 of their last 6 games and Newport have won 3,lost 2 and drawn 1 of their last 5 games. When the sides met earlier this season it finished 2-1 to Newport with 5 Newport corners, 4 Morecambe corners, 2 Newport yellow cards and 1 Newport Red card. Morecambe have scored 8 goals in their last 3 games and have conceded at least 1 goal in all of their last 8 games. Both teams have scored in 8 of the last 10 Morecambe games with 7 of those 10 games seeing at least 3 goals. Newport are slightly more patchy recently on the goal front but have scored 4 goals in their last 2 games. Newport have failed to score in 4 of their last 8 games. Even with some doubts around Newport we believe the fact they’ve scored 2 goals in each of their last 2 games is strong enough when added to the Morecambe goal record for us to recommend goals in this one. It looks extremely likely the game will see at least 2 goals with both teams to score and over 2.5 goals also looking like good bets. Newport only average 3.33 corners a game in their last 6 games and Morecambe only average 4.33 corners per game in their last 12 games, which whilst its not terrible, is not a high enough event average for us to ignore the low Newport corner count in recent games, so we believe corners is a bet to avoid. Morecambe average 2 yellow cards a game in their last 23 games and have had at least 1 card in 21 of those 23 games. Newport cannot be relied on for bookings themselves as they have finished with no cards in 4 of their last 8 games. An interesting stat on cards though is that Newport opponents have been given at least 20 booking points in 19 out of their last 22 games, so it looks likely that Morecambe could end up with at least 20 booking points. So the best bets in this game are goals and Morecambe booking points.

Oldham vs Cambridge match preview

Oldham have drawn 2, lost 2 and won 1 of their last 5 games and Cambridge have won 3 and lost 3 of their last 6 games. The reverse fixture ended 2-1 to Oldham with no Cambridge corners, 7 Oldham corners , 1 Cambridge yellow card and 4 Oldham yellow cards . Goals is an angle to avoid as Cambridge have failed to score in 2 of their last 5 games and scored just 1 goal in each of the other 3 games. Cambridge have also kept 6 clean sheets in their last 11 games. Oldham last 2 games have both finished 0-0 and they have failed to score in 4 of their last 5 games. Both sides are too inconsistent with corners and cards and for that reason we believe this is a game to avoid betting on.

Port Vale vs Bolton match preview

Port Vale have lost 4 and drawn 3 of their last 7 games whilst Bolton are on a 19 game unbeaten run and have won 8 of those 10 games. When they met earlier in the season Port Vale won 6-3 with 5 corners for each team and just 1 Port Vale yellow card. Bolton have been in tremendous form lately and have scored at least 1 goal in all of their last 13 games. Port Vale have conceded in 9 of their last 11 games and have failed to score in 4 of their last 5 games. The most clear and obvious bet in this game is simply backing Bolton to win, they have their eyes set in the playoff whilst Port Vale are in a relegation scrap at the bottom of the table. The only surprising thing about us recommending this bet is the fact that you can back Bolton at odds against. If you are looking for a safer bet to be part of an acca then the odds on Bolton to score 1 goal or Bolton double chance (Bolton not to lose the game) both standout as being value and good bets to have in a multiple. With no standout bets from the corners or cards stats it seems like the bets mentioned above that are based around Bolton winning, scoring a goal or Bolton to not lose the game are the way to go

Southend vs Stevenage match preview

Southend have drawn 2 and lost 2 of their last 4 games whilst Stevenage are unbeaten in 7, drawing 4 and winning 3. The first meeting between these two this season ended 0-0 with 5 Stevenage corners, 4 Southend corners, 1 Stevenage yellow card and 2 Southend yellow cards. Stevenage have kept 5 clean sheets in a row whilst Southend have failed to score in any of their last 4 games. The clear bet that jumps out straight away is Stevenage to win and the fact you can back them at odds against is a slight surprise. For those looking for a safer bet to be a part of an acca then the standout bet is Stevenage or draw (Stevenage not to lose the game) as Southend are the lowest scorers in the league so 1 goal from Stevenage will likely be enough to make sure they don’t lose the game, plus it covers the 0-0 result as well which does look like it could happen, especially as the first meeting between these 2 finished goalless. Both teams are very up and down with corners and cards and as there is the chance that this game could turn into a boring stalemate we recommend leaving corners and cards in this game off your bet slip. So the best bets in this one will be based around Stevenage to win or the safer option which will be a good part of a multiple if Stevenage to win or draw.

Grimsby vs Colchester match preview

Colchester have lost 5 of their last 6 games and have only won 1 of their last 17 games. Grimsby have lost 11 of their last 14 games, winning 1 and drawing the other 2. The reverse fixture ended 1-1 with 3 Grimsby corners, 4 Colchester corners, 4 Grimsby yellow cards and 1 Colchester yellow card. We can get straight to the point in this game and say that this is not a game where we would recommend any type of bet. With 2 teams both struggling and in a relegation battle you couldn’t back the result or goals with any confidence from looking at the stats. The corner and card stats could be misleading for this game as well as these two sides will be used to playing on the back foot for allot of their games and are likely to have more possession and create more chances playing against each other than allot of other teams in the league. So this is a game we strongly advise avoiding.
