Forest Green vs Harrogate: Top Free Betting Tips
Forest Green will face Harrogate in a clash that is a must-win for both teams for different reasons. Forest Green have to escape the relegation zone while Harrogate are just two points behind the playoff zone. Here are our predictions.
Team Total Goals Prediction: Harrogate Over 1.5 Goals
On paper, Forest Green are the weakest home side in the league. They have won only 9 points since the start in 13 fixtures and have a goal difference of 14:24. They conceded 2+ goals in the majority of their games. Harrogate, on the other hand, have had their best performances on the road this season. Only two teams have won more away games than them since the start of the campaign. Their attack is not high-scoring but we expect more from them against such a weak team like Forest Green.
Match Result Prediction: Harrogate to Win
This is a risky pick but Harrogate cannot afford to drop more points against teams from the bottom of the table. With the three points from this match and some luck, they may find themselves in 7th place in the league. The team has had problems in attack and this is a huge opportunity for them to score more goals than usual. Their defense is one of the better ones in the league and especially on the road. We believe that Forest Green may fail to score in this fixture. The odds, of course, are not in favor of the visitors, which gives us a huge opportunity to bet on high odds.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-0 to Harrogate
As mentioned above, we believe that Harrogate are good enough defensively to keep a clean sheet against a weak opponent like Forest Green. Only one team has scored fewer goals than the hosts this season. At the same time, only 6 teams have conceded less than Harrogate. When we compare the Forest Green vs Harrogate line ups, we definitely think that the visitors have the advantage here and we disagree with the assessment of the bookmakers.
