Newport vs Bristol Rovers: Top Free Betting Tips
Bristol Rovers are the team in the best form in the league and they turned their season around completely. Newport have been making an unwanted number of draws lately but their form is almost as good.
Total Goals – Over 2.5
We have two completely different teams in terms of performances here but generally, both teams have had a bunch of over 2.5 games this season. In each case, no team had more than Newport to date – 21 out of 34 fixtures ended with at least 3 goals and their average goals per game is 2.9. On the other side, Bristol Rovers have had an average of 2.6 goals per game this season. It is also curious that Newport have not had a clean sheet in 7 consecutive games, so there is no doubt that Bristol, in their form, will manage to score.

Match Result – Newport
It is a fact that Bristol's recent results look more impressive than Newport's but we should take a closer look at their opponents. Newport have not lost in their last four games but they had three draws. We should note, however, that those games were against Forest Green, Mansfield and Tranmere – three of the top teams in the league. Bristol Rovers, however, played their last few games against bottom-side teams like Barrow, Leyton Orient and Stevenage. So, in other words, we still think that Newport have a better chance because they have been showing impressive performances against much better teams. Moreover, Bristol's overall away performances this season have been disappointing.
Alternative Corners – Over 9
This is the perfect pick for this fixture because both sides have had an incredible run recently and their corner stats have been much better than usual. In Newport's case, the team has taken an average of 5.60 corners in their last five games. In Bristol's case, the team has taken an average of 6.20 corners over their last five games and 5.60 in the last five outings. We think that we might see an incredible total of over 11-12 even.
