​Northampton vs Bristol Rovers: Top free betting tips

Our Northampton vs Bristol Rovers prediction is for an open game with plenty of goals. Can the Cobblers put an end to their awful recent run of form?

The teams are split by only 2 points in the current standings and both sides look to be stuck in mid-table for the rest of the season. Bristol continue to be very unpredictable, they mixed 3 wins with 3 defeats in the last 6 rounds. Northampton lost form recently (W0 D1 L3) and they keep conceding way too many goals. 

​Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 goals

Both teams struggle defensively but have decent attacking lines and that’s why our first Northampton vs Bristol Rovers prediction is for at least 3 total goals to be scored in this match. This happened in 2 of the last 3 H2Hs. Also, 8 of Bristol’s last 10 games went over 2.5 goals. 

​Total away goals prediction: Over 1.5 Bristol goals

Our second Northampton vs Bristol Rovers prediction gets even more specific regarding the Goals Market. We back the Gas to score at least 2 goals themselves. Bristol scored 2 or more in 4 of the last 6 H2Hs. Also, the Cobblers conceded 2 or more goals in 4 of their last 5 league matches. 

​​Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Bristol Rovers

With our final Northampton vs Bristol Rovers prediction we unite the first two free betting tips we gave you and pick 2-1 in favour of Bristol as our expected final score. 

Rovers secured 2-1 wins in 2 of the last 3 H2Hs. Also, 5 of Bristol’s last 7 away league triumphs were by a single-goal margin with 2 of those 5 wins 2-1 results.

With a wet and windy day forecasted for the East Midlands all Saturday, we advise the travelling fans to consider some bold fashion statements with flashy raincoats. Hey, why not even attend the game in Wellies? As Billy Connolly once sang: ‘If it wasn’t for your wellies where would you be…’
