If you check out the recent results of both sides below, you will see that both teams have been having some incredibly goal-packed games in those recent month or two. And it is logical that we go for an over 2.5 bet here, right? Yes, but Mansfield and Swindon have a really difficult rivalry and you can also see that the head-to-head games between these teams never have a lot of goals. The last 5 fixtures between them had either 1 or 0 goals. The last match between them in August also ended with a 1:0 win for Swindon. We pick the higher odds here and the bigger risk but we expect to see a serious battle between these sides and few goals, contrary to their display in recent weeks.
Double Chance – Mansfield or Draw
The outcome of this match is difficult to predict because we have two completely different teams with opposite strengths. For instance, Mansfield are one of the strongest home teams in the league. While they do not dominate in all their home matches, they have lost just 3 out of 13 games this season. On the other side, we have the second-strongest away team in the league – Swindon. Out of 11 games, they have lost just 2. It is notable that their most recent performances have been disappointing, and this is the main reason why we believe Mansfield will take something from this match. The team is among those with the best form in recent months and they should have the upper hand in this fixture.
Team Total Goals – Swindon Under 1.5
As our third prediction, we have picked Swindon to score less than two goals. The odds are quite satisfactory as Swindon are the favorite for winning this match. Yet, we expect to see few goals in this fixture and more action from the home team. We should mention that Swindon are the second-highest scoring team in away games this season while Mansfield have also conceded quite a few goals at home but as mentioned above, we are going against the expectations for this fixture.
