Burton Albion vs Shrewsbury: Top free betting tips
Will Shrewsbury’s dominance in this fixture continue? Our Burton Albion vs Shrewsbury prediction backs the visitors to record yet another win against the Brewers.
Burton ended an awful 8-game winless run (D2 L6) on Boxing Day with a narrow home victory. The Brewers changed managers recently too and they are in a rebuild mode at the minute. Shrewsbury remain only 3 points above Burton after losing 3 league games in a row. The Shrews have dominated in this fixture over the years though.
Total away goals prediction: Over 1.5 Shrewsbury goals
The Shrews are not a team that is known for scoring lots of goals. Yet they scored 2 or more goals in 4 of the last 5 H2Hs. Also, Burton’s defending had been suspect for months. The Brewers conceded at least 2 goals in 5 of the last 7 rounds. This is why our first Burton Albion vs Shrewsbury prediction is that the visitors will score more than one goal.
Correct outcome prediction: Shrewsbury to win
With our next Burton Albion vs Shrewsbury prediction we back the away side to steal all the points. Shrewsbury won 4 of the last 5 H2Hs. Also, Burton’s confidence is hardly high after they suffered 6 defeats in the last 9 rounds (W1 D2).
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Shrewsbury
Our final Burton Albion vs Shrewsbury prediction has to follow the logic from our first two free betting tips so we think the Shrews will win 2-1. This was the exact scoreline in favour of Shrewsbury in 2 of the last 3 H2Hs.
Also, Burton’s last league defeat was a 1-2 home loss vs Stevenage.
