Colchester vs Rochdale: Top Free Betting Tips
Colchester and Rochdale have not bee among the good teams – most of their results are either draws or losses, and now they face each other – what should we expect? Here are our tips.
Both Teams To Score – Yes
Neither side is incredible offensively and they are definitely bad on the defense as well. But, against each other, we expect to see at least one goal from each side. The previous game earlier in the season ended in a 1:1 draw and we expect a similar result here. Four out of the last five home games of Colchester ended with both teams scoring a goal and while Rochdale are far from the highest-scoring teams, they are the favorite here and we expect to see a goal from them as well.
Match Result – Draw
As mentioned already, the previous match between these teams ended in a draw. Based on their recent performances, we can hardly predict a winner here because both teams have been quite dissappointing. Yes, both teams did not lose their two most recent games but most of their games before that were losses. They are almost next to each other in the standings with nearly identical points. Moreover, both teams have had a considerable number of draws this season. Colchester had 8 overall and 4 at home while Rochdale had 11 draws overall and 5 on the road.
Team Total Goals – Rochdale Under 1.5
We expect to see at least one goal per team but not more than that. These two teams are among the lowest-scoring sides in the entire league. Rochdale have scored 30 goals in 25 games and 16 of those came in their away games. Despite their low placement and predominantly negative results, Colchester have conceded only 15 goals in 12 home games this season. Moreover, Rochdale had quite a few 0:0 results this season (5).
