Ascoli lost their position in the playoffs zone and now has to bounce back and reclaim it. Fortunately, the team will face one of the weakest sides in the league and a team that has not won a match in months – Crotone.
Ascoli vs Crotone: Top Free Betting Tips
Ascoli were among the best until recently but three winless games in recent weeks put them behind eight other teams. Crotone have been among the three worst teams since the start of the season and while there are a lot of rounds left until the end of the campaign, their chances are slim.
Total Goals – Over 2.5
We have an interesting situation – both teams have had predominantly matches with less than 2.5 goals. At the same time, the head-to-head games between them in recent years have been quite impressive and goal-packed – this is one of the matchups that has had the most goals in recent seasons. For example, the previous match between them ended in a 2:2 draw and while the draw is not a certainty, we expect to see a lot of goals again.
First Team To Score – Ascoli
Ascoli have been struggling to win their matches lately but they are often the team that starts the match better and scores early. Their problems mainly come in the later stages of games. Overall, despite the results, Ascoli scored first in five out of their seven games and we think that we will see it again against Crotone. The visitors are one of the worst teams on the road and have not yet won a single game away. They often concede a lot of goals and their defense is struggling against absolutely every opponent. We aren't sure if Ascoli will win as they have been quite bad at home this season but with Crotone being extremely weak in defense, we expect the hosts to score first.
Team Corners – Ascoli Under 5.5
Ascoli have been among the better teams in the league but their corner stats have been quite disappointing when compared to most other teams in the league. Overall, the team has taken just 4.12 corners per game this season. Moreover, we mentioned that Ascoli have been among the worst home teams and their home-game corner stats are much worse – just 3.25 corners per game. So, we think that the line of under 5.5 is an absolute gift for us and well-worth a good bet.
