Newport vs Rochdale: Top Free Betting Tips

Newport lost their chances for promotion and now have to play one last game against one of the weakest teams in the league.

Total Goals – Over 2.5

We expect to see some goals in this final round in League Two and this fixture between Newport and Rochdale is the perfect match for such a result. Neither side has anything to play for and both have been having goal-packed games lately. All three of their past head-to-head games also ended with more than 2.5 goals. Newport are one of the highest-scoring teams in the league and they will do their best one last time in front of their own crowd.

Match Result – Newport

Overall, we have two teams with terrible forms and this match could easily go in favor of either side. Nevertheless, Newport are the much better team overall and we think that they will want to win their final game at home. Rochdale are on a streak of six consecutive defeats on the road, most of which against weak teams, so Newport will be a serious challenge for them.

Alternative Corners – Over 9

Overall, neither of these teams has the most spectacular corner stats this season but we expect to see some from both in this match. Overall, Newport took an average of 4.80 corners per game in their last five games at home. On the other side, Rochdale took an average of 5.40 corners in their last five away games even though they lost all of them.

Newport vs Rochdale: Form, Recent Games, and News

Newport Preview

Newport had a bad start this season and then suddenly improved into one of the top sides in the entire league. They had an incredible streak of games without a defeat but that changed once again in the past couple of months. From the playoff zone, the team fell all the way down to the middle of the table and this is where they will end. Nevertheless, this squad has a lot of potential and should be a main contender next season.

Rochdale Preview

Rochdale have had one main problem this entire season – their huge number of draws. The team had 17 in 45 games to date and this is mainly due to their weak attack. As long as they improve this before the upcoming campaign, they could even be a promotion contender. The team has fewer defeats than half of the league but that huge accumulation of draws kept them away from the three points too many times.
