Northampton to Win
Northampton are up to third spot in League Two following a superb run of four straight victories and the Cobblers can maintain their streak at Bristol Rovers’ expense on Saturday. The Pirates have lost three of their last four matches at home against promotion contenders Leyton Orient, Swindon and Newport – and Northampton are in a similar class to that trio of sides. With that considered, we recommend siding with the visitors this weekend.
Both Teams to Score
While their results at the Memorial Stadium have been subpar this term, Bristol Rovers have managed to remain consistent goalscorers on their own patch. The Pirates have notched in all but one of their seven league fixtures at home since the summer and their knack for impacting the scoresheet in front of their own supporters could give bettors an opportunity to land a winner in the both teams to score market when Northampton visit.
Over 2.5 Goals
Each of Bristol Rovers last four assignments at home in League Two produced over 2.5 goals and it’s worth noting that three of the last four visitors to the Memorial Stadium (Leyton Orient, Swindon and Newport) left with 3-1 victories. Northampton have the quality to deliver a similar performance on Saturday and we recommend sticking with the over 2.5 goals market as a result.
