​Derby vs Cheltenham: Top free betting tips

Our Derby vs Cheltenham prediction is for a close game that in our opinion the Rams should edge. Will there be yet another clean sheet for Derby?

The Rams might have failed to win their last 2 league games but they remain right in the mix for a top 2 finish. Derby’s form had been good and they won 9 of their last 12 league games (D1 L2). Cheltenham remain in the relegation zone despite improved displays since the managerial change in November. The Robins continue to be timid on the road – W2 D2 L9. 

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals

Our first Derby vs Cheltenham prediction is for a game with fewer than 3 total goals. Only 1 of Derby’s last 4 matches went over 2.5 goals. Also, all of Cheltenham’s last 4 away games had no more than 2 total goals in them. 

​​Clean sheet prediction: Derby clean sheet

Our next Derby vs Cheltenham prediction backs the Rams to secure their twelfth league clean sheet of the season, already have 11 in 28 rounds. The Rams are now up against the weakest attack on the road in the entire division. Cheltenham have scored only 7 goals in their 13 away matches so far.

​​Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Derby

With our final Derby vs Cheltenham prediction we take into account the first two betting tips and try to give you our final score. We back Derby to win this match 1-0. 

Derby saw 5 of their last 8 wins secured by a single-goal margin, with 2 of those 5 narrow wins being 1-0 triumphs. Cheltenham lost their last 2 league games with that same 0-1 result.
