Portsmouth vs Ipswich match preview

Portsmouth have lost their last 4 whilst Ipswich have lost 2, won 1 and drawn 1 of their last 4. When the sides met earlier in this season it ended 2-0 to Portsmouth with 3 Ipswich corners, 7 Portsmouth corners and 3 yellow cards for each team. Ipswich have scored in 6 if their last 7 games and have conceded in 5 of their last 6. Portsmouth have conceded in all of their last 5 games and they conceded an average of 2 goals per game in those 5 games. Whilst goals would not be a surprise looking at the season stats, both sides have struggled for goals somewhat of late. Portsmouth only average 0.92 goals per game in their last 13 games and Ipswich only average 0.85 goals per game in their last 14 games. Portsmouth have had at least 3 corners in 28 of their 34 league games this season and have been given at least 1 card in 29 of those 34 games. Ipswich have had at least 3 corners in 29 of their 34 league games played this season and they were given at least 1 card in 33 of those 34 games. So the best bet here is for both teams to have at least 3 corners and see at least 1 card each.

AFC Wimbledon vs Charlton match preview

AFC Wimbledon have failed to win any of their last 6 games, drawing 4 and losing 2. Charlton are unbeaten in 5, winning 3 and drawing 2. When the sides met earlier this season Charlton won 5-2 with 3 corners for each team, 1 Charlton yellow card and 2 AFC Wimbledon yellow cards. Charlton have scored in 14 of their last 16 games and have conceded in 16 of their last 21 games, conceding an average of 1.61 goals per game in those 21 games. Goals don’t look a bad bet but AFC Wimbledon only score an average of 0.57 goals per game in their last 14 games and 6 of the last 7 AFC Wimbledon games have gone under 2.5 goals. When you look at the season stats the standout bet is both teams to have at least 3 corners and both teams to see at least 1 player booked. AFC Wimbledon have had 3 or more corners in 27 of their 34 league games played this season and have been given at least 1 card in 28 of those games. Charlton have had at least 3 corners in 30 of their 36 league games this season and have been given at least 1 card in 32 of those game. Recent form does add some doubt to that bet as AFC Wimbledon have had just 2 corners in 2 of their last 4 games and didn’t get any cards in their last game. It’s mainly the corners where AFC Wimbledon add doubt as they average 4.14 corners per game this season, so them to have 3 corners looks the risky part of that bet. Booking Points indeed look the safer bet as Charlton games all season have resulted in cards and whilst AFC Wimbledon are not high on the card averages, we believe Charlton can drag them down to their level and there is a chance that even if AFC Wimbledon get no cards, Charlton could cover the bet on their own. So the best bet looks to be the game to have at least 3 cards.

Accrington vs Wigan match preview

Accrington have lose their last 3 games and Wigan are unbeaten in their last 3 games, winning 2 and drawing 1. When the sides met earlier in the season Wigan win 4-3 with 6 Wigan corners, 10 Accrington corners and 2 Accrington Stanley yellow cards. Wigan have conceded in 16 of their last 20 games and conceded an average of 1.95 goals per game in those 20 games. Wigan have scored in 9 of their last 11 games. Accrington have conceded in all of their last 8 games and have conceded an average of 2 goals per game in those 8 games. Accrington have scored in 5 of their last 6 games. Goals look a good bet as both teams have proven they can score goals and both teams are prone to conceding goals. Whilst Accrington are one of the best teams in the league for consistency with hitting 3 or more corners and getting at least 1 player booked, the issue is Wigan are not as consistent and whilst it would be no surprise to see Wigan have 3 or more corners and get a player booked, the recent stats don’t fill you with confidence that they will. 2 of the last 4 Wigan games have finished with no cards at all and Wigan have had exactly 3 corners in all of their last 3 games, so whilst they have covered the corner line they have been barely covering it. So goals look the safest bet in this one with it highly likely both teams score and the game has at least 3 goals.

Burton vs MK Dons match preview

Burton drew last time to break a run of winning 6 in a row. MK Dons have won their last 2 games after losing 3 in a row before that  the reverse fixture ended 1-1 with 11 MK Dons corners, 6 Burton corners and 2 Burton yellow cards. MK Dons have conceded in all of their last 8 games and they conceded an average of 2.25 goals per game in those 8 games. MK Dons have scored in 10 of their last 12 games and they scored an average of 1.91 goals per game in those 12 games. Burton have scored in all of their last 7 games and scored an average of 1.71 goals per game in those 7 games. Burton have kept 4 clean sheets in their last 6 games. Even with Burton keeping clean sheets in recent games, goals look a good bet with it highly likely the game has a couple of goals at least, and both teams to score also looks a good angle. Burton only average 3.8 corners a game in their last 5 games and MK Dons have given away an average of just 2.28 corners a game in their last 7 games so it looks likely that MK Dons will have the most corners as Burton have given away an average of 6.50 corners a game in their last 4 games and MK Dons have taken an average of 5.65 corners per game in their last 6 games. Cards don’t look a bad bet and whilst it would be no surprise to see a few bookings, the stats are not strong enough for us to recommend a bet there. So goals look the standout betting angle with it also likely that MK Dons will have the most corners.

Fleetwood vs Swindon match preview

Swindon have lost their last 4 and Fleetwood are unbeaten in their last 6 games, winning 4 and drawing 2. The reverse fixture ended 1-0 to Fleetwood with 6 Fleetwood corners, 5 Swindon corners, 3 Fleetwood yellow cards and 2 Swindon cards. Fleetwood have kept 4 clean sheets in a row whilst Swindon have conceded in all of their last 9 games and 22 of their last 23. Swindon games usually result in goals this season though Fleetwood have been on the lower end of the goal averages all season. Only 1 of the last 9 Fleetwood games have gone over 2.5 goals and in their last 16 games they only score an average of 0.81 goals per game. Swindon only score an average of 0.83 goals per game in their last 12 games, so the real reason that Swindon games have seen goals is more through a poor defence rather than them scoring allot of goals. For that reason and the fact Fleetwood are on the low end of the goal averages right now we think goals in an angle to avoid. Swindon have had 2 corners or less in 4 of their last 5 games and Fleetwood only average 3.28 corner a game in their last 7 games, so corners looks am angle to avoid. Cards looks the best bet with it highly likely the game has at least 3 cards and both teams pick up a booking at least. Fleetwood have been given at least 1 card in 29 of their 36 league games and Swindon have been given at least 1 card in 31 of their 35 games played. So cards looks the best angle in this one.

Gillingham vs Doncaster match preview

Doncaster have lost 6, won 2 and drawn 2 of their last 10 games. Gillingham have won 4 and lost 1 of their last 5 games. Doncaster won 2-1 when the sides met earlier in the season with 2 Gillingham corners, 7 Doncaster corners and 1 Doncaster yellow card. Gillingham have scored 3  goals in each of their last 4 wins and have conceded at least 1 goal in 12 of their last 14 games. Gillingham have had at least 3 corners in all of their last 18 games, though they only average 4.16 corners per game in those 18 games so have been pretty close to the line at times. Gillingham have given away an average of 5 corners per game in their last 6 games. Doncaster have taken an average of 6 corners per game in their last 8 games and they have given away an average of 7.75 corners per game in those 8 games. Doncaster only average 0.60 yellow cards per game in their last 10 games and have finished with no cards in 6 of those 10 games. Doncaster have failed to have any cards in 10 of their 33 games this season and Gillingham have failed to have any cards in 10 of their 36 games, so whilst cards wouldn’t be a surprise we can’t back them with much confidence. So the best bet looks to be corners as its highly likely both teams have at least 3 corners and the game could be pushing towards double figures.

Northampton vs Crewe match preview

Northampton have lost 2, won 2 and drawn 1 of their last 5 games. Crewe have lost 2, drawn 2 and won 1 of their last 5 games. Crewe won 2-1 when they played for the first time earlier in the season with 12 Crewe and no Northampton corners, 1 yellow card for each team and 1 Northampton red card. Crewe have conceded in 6 of their last 8 games and they conceded an average of 1.62 goals per game in those 8 games. Crewe have scored in 18 of their last 21 games and average 1.42 goals per game in those 21 games. Northampton have scored in 4 of their last 5 games and average 1.60 goals per game in those 5 games. Crewe have been pretty consistent with goals but Northampton have not. Northampton have failed to score in 8 of their last 13 games and have kept a clean sheet in 7 of their last 15 games. Most bets have some doubt to them but Northampton have been given 33 yellow cards in their last 12 games (an average of 2.75 yellow cards per game). Crewe opponents have been given at least 1 card in all of the last 24 Crewe games and their opponents were given an average of 1.95 yellow cards per game in those 24 games. So the best bet here looks to be Northampton to have at least 2 cards. Crewe have been given no cards in 4 of their last 5 games so we recommend sticking to Northampton booking points or total match booking points.

Oxford vs Blackpool match preview

Oxford have drawn 3, won 2 and lost 1 of their last 6 games and Blackpool are unbeaten in their last 8 games, winning 4 and drawing 4. It ended 0-0 in the reverse fixture with 4 Blackpool corners, 3 Oxford corners and 1 Oxford yellow card. Blackpool have scored in 8 of their last 9 games and have kept 7 clean sheets in their last 11 games. The clear best bet on this game is both teams to have at least 3 corners. Both sides average over 5 corners a game this season. Oxford have had at least 3 corners in 31 of their 34 league games this season and Blackpool have had at least 3 corners in 31 if their 32 league games this season. So the best bet is both teams to have 3 corners and the stats suggest this is a game that will be pushing double figures.

Bristol Rovers have been inconsistent with goals lately as they have failed to score in 3 of their last 5 but in the other 2 games they scored 4 goals and 2 goals in each of those games. Rovers have conceded in 9 of their last 10 games and they conceded an average of 1.50 goals per game in those games. Plymouth have failed to score in 5 of their last 8 games so have not exactly been in free scoring form. Plymouth have conceded in all of their last 7 games and they conceded an average of 2.14 goals per game in those games. it’s a game where it’s hard to say there won’t be goals as both teams conceded regularly and in Plymouth case they usually concede multiple goals in a game, it’s just neither side convinces at the other end of the field so we can’t confidently back goals in this one. Bristol Rovers have had 2 corners or less in 4 of their last 9 games and Plymouth have finished with 2 corners or less in 4 of their last 7 games so corners is an angle to avoid as well. According to the season stats bookings is the best bet in this game. Plymouth have seen 25 of their 36 league games have at least 3 cards and they were given at least 1 card in 31 of those 36 games. Bristol Rovers have seen 28 of their 35 league games end with at least 3 cards and they were given at least 1 card in 27 of those 35 games. Though when we look at current form on cards we see that Bristol Rovers only average 1 yellow card a game in their last 7 games and Plymouth have been given no cards in 2 of their last 4 games and only average 1 yellow card per game in their last 13 games. So for that reason this is a game where we would not confidently tip anything.

Rochdale vs Peterborough match preview

Rochdale won last time to break a 4 game losing run. Peterborough have win 7, lost 2 and drawn 1 of their last 10 games. The reverse fixture ended 4-1 to Peterborough with 7 Peterborough corners, 3 Rochdale corners and 2 Peterborough yellow cards. Peterborough have scored in 9 of their last 10 games and they scored ab average of 1.80 goals per game in those 10 games. Before winning last time out Rochdale had gone 7 league games in a row without scoring. Rochdale have conceded at least 1 goal in 17 of their last 18 games and in those 18 games they conceded an average of 2.11 goals per game. Peterborough have scored 2 or more goals in 6 of their last 10 games and Rochdale have conceded 2 goals in 4 of their last 5 games. So their looks a good chance that Peterborough will score a couple of goals. Peterborough average 5.60 corners a game in their last 10 games though Rochdale have been inconsistent with corners lately and Rochdale have had 2 corners or less in 11 of their 35 games this season. So corners looks risky and worth avoiding. 5 of the last 9 Peterborough games have had just 2 yellow cards or less. Rochdale have had 6 of their last 11 games finish with just 2 yellow cards or less. So whilst bookings wouldn’t be a surprise we can’t recommend it with confidence. For that reason this is a game where we would not recommend a bet.

Shrewsbury vs Hull match preview

Shrewsbury have drawn 2, lost 2 and won 1 of their last 5 games whilst Hull have now won 5 in a row. Shrewsbury won 1-0 when the sides met earlier this season with 6 Hull corners, 3 Shrewsbury corners and 3 Shrewsbury yellow cards. Hull have scored 12 goals in this 5 games winning run an average if 2.40 goals per game, they have also kept 4 clean sheets in their last 5 games. Shrewsbury have scored in 8 of their last 9 games and average 1.44 goals scored in each of those 9 games. Shrewsbury have conceded in 7 of their last 8 games and they conceded an average of 1.25 goals per game in those 8 games. Goals don’t look a bad bet though Hull’s defensive record does cast some doubt on will Shrewsbury score so total match goals may be the best bet. Shrewsbury average just 2.66 corners per game in their last 6 games and Hull average just 3 corners a game in their last 4 games, so on current form we are happy to dodge corners in this game. Cards wouldn’t be a surprise but Shrewsbury have been given no cards in 2 of their last 4 games and Hull have been given no cards in 2 of their last 5 games. So much like corners on current form we are happy to leave bookings and take goals as the best angle to follow on this one.
