Derby vs Shrewsbury: Top free betting tips
Our Derby vs Shrewsbury prediction backs the hosts to continue their strong push towards promotion. Can the Shrews find a way to cause an upset?
The Rams remain in the top 2 despite winning only 2 of their last 4 league matches (D1 L1). That said Derby failed to win any of their last 3 matches vs Shrewsbury (D2 L1). The Shrews are hanging just above the relegation zone right now but they feel serious pressure. Despite a recent change of managers, Shrewsbury lost 8 of their last 10 matches.
Goalscorer anytime prediction: James Collins to score anytime
Our first Derby vs Shrewsbury prediction backs the main striker of the Rams Collins to find the back of the net at some stage in this match. Collins is guaranteed a starting spot up front with both Waghorn and Washington out injured right now.
Collins has 13 league goals already and he scored in all of the last 3 home matches, 4 goals altogether.
Half with the most goals prediction: Second
Our next Derby vs Shrewsbury prediction is that most of the goals will be scored after the interval. The Rams have scored 62.3%, or 33 of 53, of their league goals so far after the break. Shrewsbury also tends to score most of their goals after the break – 61.9%, 13 of 21 goals.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Derby
With our final Derby vs Shrewsbury prediction we back the Rams to win this match 2-1. Derby achieved 5 of their last 6 wins by a single goal, with 2 of their last 4 home triumphs with that 2-1 scoreline.
At the same time, 6 of Shrewsbury’s last 7 losses were by a single goal and the Shrews lost 1-2 twice just in the last 3 rounds.

Shrewsbury fans hopeful for first win in this fixture
Can’t imagine many Ramsfans look for Shrewsbury Town fixtures when they drop pre-season. As a Salopian of 33 years standing it is my first port of call. 3 games played and we’ve yet to win or even put in a performance against my hometown team. Surely that changes tomorrow? #DCFC
