Bradford vs Colchester: Top Free Betting Tips
Bradford had a somewhat positive start to the season but their accumulation of draws in recent weeks has kept them from the top places in the league. Colchester have been having similar problems but earlier in the season, so generally, we have two equal teams.
Both Teams To Score – Yes
Colchester's attack has definitely been the main issue for their negative results this season. The team has scored just 16 goals in 18 rounds and just 6 of those came in away games like this one. Nevertheless, we should take Bradford's form into consideration as it has not been positive. Wednesday's hosts have conceded 11 goals in 9 home matches and have generally conceded at least one goal in 11 consecutive matches – that is, against good and bad teams. Colchester will get their chances but it is up to them to score – we believe that it will happen.
Match Result – Draw
Bradford have been placed as a big favorite for this game, which is unexpected given their recent performances. The teams are absolutely equal in strength and generally, Colchester have had a better run in the recent month. Knowing that Bradford are one of the teams with the highest number of draws since the start while Colchester also have had quite a few, we believe that this is the much better option and the odds are great. Bradford have had 4 draws in their last 5 league games.
Team Total Goals – Bradford Under 1.5
One more bet against the big favorites here but it is worth noting. Bradford have not scored two goals in a match in a while. The team has not been dominant in the recent games and we do not expect them to control the pace here either. Colchester are not better but they have not been conceding a lot overall this season. See, the visitors have played 8 away games in the league and they conceded more than one goal just 3 times, against some of the strongest sides that are in the promotion race. There is a good chance that we will see another 1:1 from Bradford here.
