​Shrewsbury vs Fleetwood: Top free betting tips

Our Shrewsbury vs Fleetwood prediction backs the hosts to secure a convincing win. Will Fleetwood’s dismal displays continue?

The Shrews ended 2023 with 4 consecutive defeats. The many injury issues combined with the season-long struggle to score goals leave Shrewsbury close to the relegation zone and under pressure. Fleetwood’s form is even worse with the Cod Army winless since early November – D2 L7. 

Total goals prediction: Odd

The Shrews saw 5 of their last 6 league matches finish with an odd amount of goals. Fleetwood too saw 4 of their last 6 games ending with an odd number of goals. Our first Shrewsbury vs Fleetwood prediction is also backed by the fact that 4 of the last 5 H2Hs produced an odd number of goals. 

Both teams to score prediction: No

Our next Shrewsbury vs Fleetwood prediction is that at least one team will keep a clean sheet. In only 1 of the last 7 H2Hs, both sides managed to score. Also, only 1 of the last 5 away games for Fleetwood had a BTTS outcome.

​​Correct score prediction: 3-0 to Shrewsbury

Our final Shrewsbury vs Fleetwood prediction is for a 3-0 home win. This was the exact scoreline with which the Shrews won their last home game vs Fleetwood. Also, 3 of Fleetwood’s last 5 away defeats were 0-3 humiliations.
