Colchester vs Oldham: Top Free Betting Tips
Oldham were at the bottom of the league for most of the season – it seemed like the team has no future in League Two but that has changed completely and they have been one of those at the best current form.
Both Teams To Score – Yes
Oldham are far from the best usual choice for a BTTS bet but we have a lot of history between Colchester and Oldham and most of the games between them were incredibly goal-packed. For insta,ce the last three games in this and the previous season ended in 1:2, 5:2, and 3:3 At the same time, five of the last seven head-to-head games had both teams score goals. Colchester have also been scoring a lot of goals while conceding a lot in recent weeks and had BTTS in 5/7 fixtures and over 2.5 goals in 4/5 games. We expect a strong game from Oldham and goals from them, so you can consider the over 2.5 option as well.
Double Chance – Draw or Oldham
Colchester have been placed as massive favorites to win this game and we struggle to find the logic behind these odds. Colchester have not won a match in four consecutive games while Oldham have not lost in five in a row. They also won three of those, so we can generally say that the team is in perfect shape – they had some good results against championship contenders and so on. We think that we will see a positive result for the visitors once again and while there is no guarantee about the clean win, we expect that it will be a draw or a win for Oldham. The double chance option is the perfect choice here but if you want higher odds, you can settle for the draw no bet option as well.
Alternative Corners – Under 11 Corners
Colchester and Oldham have taken a considerable number of corners but not in their most recent games. Colchester in particular, have had under 11 corners in eight out of their last nine league games. We think that we will see a low number here as well. Colchester took an average of 4.47 corners per game this season while Oldham a bit more – 4.87 corners per match. Overall, Colchester have had an average of 9.63 corners in their games, while Oldham's stats are not in out favor – 10.73 per game, mainly due to their opponents.
