Both Teams To Score – Yes
Mansfield are the big favorite here, there is no doubt, but we expect a match with loads of goals and at least one from Colchester too. Mansfield's home games have had a bunch of goals – 44 in just 16 fixtures. The team conceded 17 in 16 games. Colchester's form had the team score in five consecutive games now, some of which were against serious opponents. We expect that Mansfield will win this game with 2:1 or 3:1 and we are certain that Colchester will find their way to the goal.
Match Result – Mansfield
Did we mention that Mansfield are the most improved team in the league? This is mainly because of their impressive performances at home – the team is the strongest host in the league with just 3 losses out of 16 games. They have not lost in 10 games and won the last 8 consecutively. Colchester might have improved but they did not play against a team like Forest Green and Mansfield, so we are not sure that they have the strength to deal with such an opponent.
Team Corners – Colchester Over 3.5
We usually do not go for the corners market for the visiting team but the line here is incredibly low and we believe that it is worth a shot. Colchester's season in corners shows us the following – 4.21 corners per match on average and 3.67 corners on average in games on the road. In the last five away games, they took an average of 3.80. You can pick the traditional corners market and go for an over 8 or over 9 total because Mansfield have also been taking a considerable number per game (5.00).
