​Northampton vs Shrewsbury: Top free betting tips

Our Northampton vs Shrewsbury prediction backs the Cobblers to find a way to win this match. Will the managerial change this week help the Shrews to improve their forward actions?

The Cobblers established in the top 10 after collecting 10 points from their last 4 league games. At home, Northampton have been solid all season (W7 D3 L4). At the same time, Shrewsbury changed managers at the start of the week after losing 6 of their last 7 matches. The returning for his second stint Paul Hurst will make his debut now. 

Goalscorer anytime prediction: Sam Hoskins to score anytime

Northampton’s star striker Sam Hoskins (14 goals in 25 league appearances) has scored in exactly 50% of his team’s home matches this season. Hoskins is red-hot right now and he has scored in 4 of Northampton’s last 5 home league games. This is why with our first Northampton vs Shrewsbury prediction we back him to find the back of the net again. 

Total goals prediction: Odd

Our second Northampton vs Shrewsbury prediction is for an odd number of total goals. There were an odd number of goals scored in 4 of the last 5 H2Hs. Also, 5 of Northampton’s last 6 matches had an odd amount of goals in them. 

​​Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Northampton

With our final Northampton vs Shrewsbury prediction we back the Cobblers to edge this match 2-1. This same scoreline has been the winning result for 3 of Northampton’s last 6 wins. 

At the same time, Shrewsbury lost 2 of their last 6 league games 1-2, including last weekend.
