Colchester vs Crawley – Free betting tips by Football Ground Guide

We have the following as the top free and expert predictions for Colchester vs Crawley  ahead of the Saturday, 9th December 2023 meeting:

Team to score prediction – Both teams to score

The first prediction for Colchester vs Crawley backs both teams to register on the score sheet. Looking the current scoring stats, we note that both sides have done quite well in converting their chances even though the results have been disappointing.

For example, Colchester did not score in only one of their last five games in the division despite suffering three defeats in a row ahead of this meeting wit Crawley. The visitors on the other hand did not also score in only one of their last five and lost twice in that period.

We think the scoring forms will play significance more than H2H which shows that only two of the last five meetings had goal-goal results.

Match result prediction – Draw

In the second Colchester vs Crawley prediction, we expect the game to end square. The teams have been unpredictable and wins have been rare lately. So while Crawley have had more wins recently, the visitors lost all their last three games, scoring a goal on two occasions. A draw is a good pick for this meeting.

Correct score prediction – 1-1 Draw

With a draw looking good on the books in this England League Two clash, not forgetting that we have backed both teams to score on matchday, our final tip is a scoreline. We have settled on a 1-1 scoreline as the final Colchester vs Crawley prediction. Notably, this has been a difficult matchup, with 4 of the last 7 ending in draws and only two games in that period ending with more than a goal.
