​Peterborough vs Shrewsbury: Top free betting tips

Are Posh ready to continue scoring goals with ease? Our Peterborough vs Shrewsbury prediction is that the hosts will continue to dominate in attack and find a way to win this match. 

The Posh remain firmly in the race for direct promotion after suffering a single defeat in the last 17 rounds. Shrewsbury on the other hand are back looking nervously over their shoulders as 4 defeats in the last 5 games leave close to the danger zone. 

Total home goals prediction: Over 1.5 Peterborough goals

Peterborough have been enjoying an excellent run of form mainly thanks to their impressive forward actions. The Posh scored 2 or more goals in 9 of their last 10 league games. Peterborough also scored 2 or more goals in all of the last 3 H2Hs. That’s why our first Peterborough vs Shrewsbury prediction is for at least 2 home goals. 

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Our next Peterborough vs Shrewsbury prediction is that both teams will get on the scoresheet. On all their excellent forward moves the Posh are shaky at the back and 5 of their last 6 matches had BTTS outcomes. Both teams also scored in 3 of the last 4 H2Hs. 

​​​Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Peterborough

Our final Peterborough vs Shrewsbury prediction takes into consideration the first few free betting tips we gave you. We think Peterborough could win this match 2-1. This was the exact result in favour of the Posh in 2 of the last 3 H2Hs. 

Also, 2 of Peterborough’s last 3 league wins were 2-1 triumphs. To add to that, 4 of Shrewsbury’s last 5 defeats were by single-goal margins.
