Both Teams To Score – Yes
Bristol Rovers and Colchester have a lot of history between them although those games were more than a decade ago. Back then, these teams didn't have a lot of goals in their games but we expect to see the opposite in this match like the previous one which ended in a 1:1 draw. Bristol Rovers are one of the stronger home teams in the league, so we shouldn't expect Colchester to score a lot but we expect them to net at least one goal. Four of their last five games in the league had both teams scoring goals while six out of the last eight games had more than 2.5 goals.
Match Result – Bristol Rovers
As mentioned above, Bristol Rovers are one of the strongest home teams in the league and especially in recent months. They lost only a single game out of their last ten at home and won six. Colchester are having a good run with four matches without a defeat but three of them were at home and their only outing was against one of the weakest teams in the league. They remain a weaker team that Bristol Rovers and far from the better away teams in the league. We think that Bristol Rovers will be motivated to reach the promotion zone and will take the three points from this fixture.
Alternative Corners – Under 11
Bristol Rovers and Colchester are not among the teams that take plenty of corners in their games and this has been throughout the entire season We do not expect to see too many in this difficult match. For example, Bristol Rovers have taken an average of 4.64 corners per game this season and just 3.83 in their home games alone. On the other side, Colchester have taken about the same – 4.47 corners per game overall and 3.89 corners per game on the road. We should see about 8-9 corners in this match but not more than 10. Most of Colchester's games overall have had less than 11 corners this season.
