Oldham vs Rochdale – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Bottom club Oldham go in search of crucial points when they host local rivals Rochdale in League Two. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.
Oldham Double Chance
Bottom club Oldham have only won four matches in League Two this term, though one of their victories was secured in the last Lancashire Debry between the Latics and Rochdale back in September (1-0). More recently, the Dale have lost three on the bounce on the road while Oldham have managed to avoid defeat in three of their last five assignments, and with home advantage key, we recommend siding with the hosts in the double chance market again.
Under 2.5 Goals
Rochdale have rattled the net one or fewer times in four of their last six away tests and their lack of bite in the final third is matched by Oldham, who have notched just once in their last four fixtures. With cutting edge lacking in both camps, we’re tipping under 2.5 goals to land for the second encounter in a row between Athletic and Rochdale.
Half Time Result: Draw
With few chances and little in the way of attacking quality expected at Boundary Park this weekend, bettors should consider backing a draw in the half time result market. Two of Oldham’s last three matches were all square at the break while the last meeting between the Latics and Rochdale last year was also deadlocked at the interval. With incident levels expected to be low again, pursuing the same market could prove a smart choice.
Oldham vs Rochdale Match Preview: Latics targeting more derby success
Oldham had secured draws in three out of four League Two tussles before they were soundly beaten 3-0 at Harrogate last time out – a result that left the Latics a huge seven points from safety. Understandably, the bookmakers have Oldham as odds on favourites to exit the Football League this term and with no sign of a new permanent manager being appointed, the picture looks bleak.
Rochdale were held to a 0-0 draw at home by a plucky Bradford outfit last weekend and Robbie Stockdale’s charges have claimed just one victory in their last nine league fixtures overall. Dale don’t look like being sucked into the relegation vortex, though their hopes of earning a top half finish in 2021/22 are diminishing by the week.
