Both Teams To Score – Yes
As two of the strongest teams in the league, we expect Exeter and Northampton to score in each of their games and in most cases – it happens. It should be noted that Northampton are not among the best away teams in the league and they often lose their games but still score goals. Exeter, on the other hand, are among the best home teams but their defense has not been the best either. They have conceded at least one goal in all home games this season apart from two – so we expect Northampton to have their chances and to score at least once.
Match Result – Exeter
As mentioned above, Northampton are far from the best away team in the league but Exeter are ranked as the second-best at home right after their opponents. So, it is quite obvious that both teams have won most of their points at home. Exeter had several draws at the start of the season but their recent performances at home have been extraordinary – 5 consecutive wins. Of course, those wins were not easy – they conceded at least one goal in all 5, which supports our previous bet, but we expect them to win this once again.
Team Total Goals – Exeter Over 1.5
Once again, we return to Exeter's home performances throughout the season. It is important that they have not yet lost in League Two but the number of goals scored is even more significant – 16 goals in 9 games. We mentioned those two games that ended 0:0 early on in the season – apart from those, Exeter have scored at least two goals in all other home games in League Two. Northampton have been conceding quite a few over the past month and conceded at least 2 goals in 4/5 recent away games. Exeter will control the pace of this game and we expect them to be just as incredible as in all previous matches.
