Despite their disappointing recent results, Newport remain in the promotion zone of League Two but need more points if they want to remain at this spot. Salford are located much lower in the table but their point deficit is not too big. Both sides need the win here.
Newport vs Salford: Top Free Betting Tips
Salford won surprisingly against Newport earlier in the season with 3:0. This result is unlikely to happen again as Newport have been one of the strongest teams in the league since then. This game promises to be one of the most interesting fixtures of this upcoming round.
Total Goals – Over 2.5
Newport are the team that has had the highest number of over 2.5 games since the beginning of this season. The hosts had 17 such games out of 23 played to date. Their home record also helps – 8 out of 10 games had more than 2 goals. On the other side, Salford have also had some over 2.5 games away from home but they are definitely not one of the most secure picks overall. As mentioned above, the first game between them had 3 goals but we expect an entirely different type of over 2.5 in this one with a lot more action from Newport.
Match Result – Newport
Newport are among the better teams in the league but their home record has not been perfect – the team has 5 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses at home. On the other hand, Salford are among the weakest away teams in the league with just 2 wins in 9 games. Although their most recent away games were not as bad as the earlier ones, we expect Newport to win this match, which will be their first at home for this year. The team got a disappointing 3:3 draw in the previous round and a 3:0 loss in the one before that, so they need to step up their game.
Team Total Goals – Newport Over 1.5
Newport are the second-highest scoring team in the league although they are quite far from the top at this point. They have scored 20 goals in 10 home games this season and in most of their games, they scored more than 1 goal. At least, they netter at least 2 goals in 7/10 home games. Salford had some positive away games recently but overall, they conceded at least 2 goals in 6/9 away games this season. This match should go in favor of Newport and anything else will be an absolute surprise.
