​Cheltenham vs Shrewsbury: Top free betting tips

Our Cheltenham vs Shrewsbury prediction is for a narrow home win. Can the hosts build on their good recent form? 

Despite an uplifting away win on Saturday Cheltenham remain in last place. However, after the awful start to the season, the safety zone is near and ever since changing their manager, the Robins have been playing much better. Shrewsbury continue to blow hot and cold. They mixed 2 wins with 2 defeats in their last 4 matches. Right now the Shrews enjoy a safe mid-table position. 

​Total goal prediction: Under 2.5 goals

Our first Cheltenham vs Shrewsbury prediction is for a game with fewer than 3 total goals. In only 2 of Cheltenham’s last 6 matches, there were more than 2 goals scored. Also, all of the last 3 H2Hs stayed under 2.5 goals. 

Both teams to score prediction: No

All of the last 3 H2Hs also saw a team keeping a clean sheet. There was a clean sheet for at least one team in 8 of Shrewsbury’s last 10 away matches too. This is why our next Cheltenham vs Shrewsbury prediction is that not both teams will be able to score. 

​​Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Cheltenham

With our final Cheltenham vs Shrewsbury prediction, we back the hosts to steal a narrow 1-0 win. This was the result with which the Robins won their last home game vs Shrewsbury. Also, 2 of Cheltenham’s 4 league wins so far, including the victory on Saturday, were with this 1-0 scoreline.
