Newport vs Tranmere: Top Free Betting Tips
Newport and Tranmere have a lot of history between them and the matches have always been shockingly goalless. It seems like these two teams cannot score goals against each other. Will we see a surprising result with goals or will this be another difficult game for both teams?
Total Goals – Under 2.5
When it comes to goals, we have the team with the most games with over 2.5 goals and the team with the least. Newport had 20 out of 32 games with over 2.5 goals and have had an average of 2.9 goals in their matches. Tranmere, in turn, have had just 7 games with over 2.5 goals out of 33 and had an average of 1.7 goals in their games. No team has had this few goals this season and it is always shocking when they have an over 2.5. What's more important is that the eight last head-to-head games between these two teams ended with less than 2.5 goals. In fact, just a single game out of these eight had more than one goal.
Match Result – Draw
We think that this match will either end in a 0:0 or a 1:1 draw. We already explained that there have never been more than two goals in the games between them and it will be a surprise to see many. Tranmere have not been the best on the road and are the team with the most draws apart from Leyton Orient – they had 7 draws in 16 games. Newport also had a bunch of draws at home – 5 out of 15 games this season. These two teams have not had a draw in a while but this season, they have been almost equal in strength, so we expect to see one.
Alternative Corners – Under 11
We expect a low number of corners in this match. Neither side is among those that have taken the most corners this season – Newport took an average of 4.69 per game while Tranmere took 4.67 per game. While the previous game between them had exactly 11 corners, most of the older h2h games had less than 10. Most of Newport's recent games had less than 11 corners – 5 out of the last 7 games. There is no reason to expect a high number of corners when Tranmere play the best defense and the most passive offense in the league and the games between these two teams have never been attacking.
