Colchester vs Bradford: Top Free Betting Tips

Colchester will face Bradford City in an interesting fixture from the 28th round of League Two. The hosts cannot afford to drop points after four games without a win. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

This is a curious matchup due to the unusual performances of the two teams. Colchester have been struggling home and away but their recent home performances have been the worst. They lost four of their last five games and conceded 2+ goals in 3/4 defeats. Bradford City have been quite impressive on the road this season and we think that their chances here are high. We expect goals on both ends as neither side is particularly good defensively.

Match Result Prediction: Bradford City to Win

This is a risky pick but the odds are not bad right now. Bookmakers really do not give Colchester much chance in this fixture and we can agree with that decision. Bradford City have truly been impressive on the road this season and especially since late November. They won four of their last five away games in all competitions. It is true that they mostly faced bottomside teams but Colchester are also part of this group. Bradford City are far from the playoff zone right now but they can still contest it and cannot afford to drop points against teams from the bottom.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Bradford City

We definitely expect Bradford City to win the three points here but we doubt that it will be an effordless win. Colchester are not at risk right now but a few more defeats and they may find themselves in the relegation zone. We believe that they will at least score one goal in this fixture. When we compare the Colchester vs Bradford line ups, we definitely think that the visitors have a solid advantage here, mostly because Colchester have the weakest defense in the entire league.

How Far Will Bradford City Fans Travel To Colchester?

It will be quite a difficult journey for Bradford fans due to the huge distance between the two cities. Fans will have to travel over 215 miles each way if they want to support their team.
