Salford vs Colchester: Top Free Betting Tips
Salford will face Colchester in a curious fixture to kick off the new round in League Two. Both teams are in desperate need to win the three points. Here are our predictions.
Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes
This is one of those games that are mostly unpredictable because of the fact that we have two of the weakest teams in the league. The three points could go in either direction and both teams may come out and perform better than usual. The safest option in such cases is the BTTS market. We have two teams that are terrible defensively but score goals in the better percentage of their games. Both sides need to win or they will end up dangerously close to the relegation zone. We can expect some action on both ends.
Match Result Prediction: Salford to Win
As mentioned above, betting on a winner in such a match is a gamble and we would advise against it unless you really like the odds and Salford's chances. We believe that this is their best chance to win three points at home this season. Salford actually can score goals and their attack is not bad at all – the issue has been the defense. Fortunately, in this case, they will face the team with the worst defense in the league and this should give them extra chances. This will either be a draw or a minimal-win scenario.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Salford
While Salford have hardly ever performed well against this opponent, this is the best opportunity they will get for a win. Moreover, their beat Crawley in their most recent game and it should give them a boost ahead of this match. Both sides cannot afford to lose this game and this is why we believe in the 2-1 scoreline for either side. Our pick is Salford as they should have the home advantage. When we compare the Salford vs Colchester line ups, we hardly see a big difference between the two teams apart from the fact that the visitors have the weakest defense in the league.
