Morecambe vs Colchester: Top Free Betting Tips

Morecambe will face Colchester in a match that should be a real battle as both sides need the three points at all costs. Here are our predictions.

Team Total Goals Prediction: Morecambe Over 1.5

Both sides have had serious struggles in recent months and this makes this matchup much more important. Colchester are dangerously close to the relegation zone and have to win this match. At the same time, they have the weakest defense in the entire league and have conceded 55 goals in 28 fixtures, almost exactly 2 per game on average. Morecambe have not had the greatest success lately but we do believe that they will take this opportunity and score goals.

Match Result Prediction: Morecambe to Win

Morecambe finally ended their winless streak with a win over one of the main contenders this season and we expect them to be extra motivated to win this fixture too. Colchester are having their worst period since the start of the season and have a single win in the last ten fixtures. They lost seven out of ten too. Their defense is terrible and their attack often fails to even create chances, let alone score goals. This is a huge opportunity for Morecambe and the win would put them close to the playoff zone.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-0 to Morecambe

This fixture may surprise us with a higher scoreline but we do not think that the over is a safe pick. Colchester have had too many games when they failed to score and Morecambe are actually quite solid at home. Few teams have conceded fewer goals than them at home since the start of the season. When we compare the Morecambe vs Colchester line ups, we do believe that the home team has the advantage here. They are not that much stronger but their defense is definitely better.

Morecambe vs Colchester: Tickets

There is still a small number of tickets available for this match at the moment, but you have to be quick if you want to buy one. We expect numbers to drop drastically in the early hours of the day or even sell out completely.
