Scunthorpe vs Gateshead: Top Free Betting Tips
Two of the weakest teams will clash in an attempt to get away from the relegation zone. Here are our predictions.
Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes
These are two of the weakest teams in the current season and this is their perfect chance to get a better result against weak opposition. The two teams are definitely not high-scoring compared to the best in the league but they can score goals against weaker defenses. Gateshead, for example, have had both teams scoring in all five most recent games of theirs. Scunthorpe had it in 3/5 but they will be the home team here and we expect to see it again.
Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
This game could either end with 0 goals or with a huge number of goals. We prefer the second option and this is mostly due to the recent performances of Gateshead. The visitors had over 2.5 goals in four out of their last five games. On the other end, Scunthorpe had over 2.5 goals in three out of five recent games and in three of those, they scored goals too. If we see BTTS here, we would definitely see more than 1:1.
Correct Score Prediction: 2:2 Draw
As mentioned prior to this preview, we expect a huge number of draws in this upcoming mid-week round and this game could easily be one of those due to the forms of both sides. Scunthorpe and Gateshead have had mostly draws in recent weeks and the three points here are equally important for both sides. Each team will be extremely motivated to get something out of this game and while 1:1 is highly possible, we like the odds for the 2:2 draw.
Scunthorpe vs Gateshead: Form, Recent Games, and News
Who would have thought that the problems at Scunthorpe run so deep that the team would be the weakest even in the National League. There is no point in talking about the League Two campaign last season – they conceded nearly 100 goals and won 3-4 games in the entire season. But going from last in L2 to one of the last teams in the National League is a disaster and Scunthorpe need an immediate improvement.
Gateshead are another one of the new teams in the National League after winning the National League North in the previous campaign. The team won its division and also had some unbelievable stats – 99:47 in 42 games. Since the level of the National League and the lower division is not very different, they have been scoring a lot in the NN too for a new team but their defense is one of the worst, so the results have been bad overall.
