Rochdale and Barrow will play one of their most important games this season and that is not because they will face a strong opponent but quite the opposite – because both teams are in some danger of relegation.
Rochdale vs Barrow: Top Free Betting Tips
Rochdale have not been good lately while Barrow have not won in six consecutive games. This match might turn out to be far more interesting than it appears.
Total Goals – Under 2.5
Barrow are a very interesting team. They mostly have draws and losses and they do not score goals but the important fact is that they also do not concede a lot of goals. Overall, we might not see them score but we do not expect to see a lot from Rochdale either. Six out of the last seven games of Barrow had less than 2.5 goals and quite a few of them ended in 0:0. Rochdale had some overs recently but most of their matches do not have a lot of goals and we also saw some 0:0 results from them too.
Match Result – Draw
It is difficult to expect something other than a draw from this fixture and there are good reasons why. Rochdale have been solid at home at least when it comes to not losing. The team lost only three out of 15 home games to date. However, eight of their matches ended in draws. Barrow have been struggling both home and away, so we do not expect them to win but the question is – do Rochdale have what it takes to win either. We think that this fixture is crucial for both sides and we will see them play safe, so there should be few goals, if any, and an easy draw.
Alternative Corners – Over 9
Although these two teams have been weak, in general, they take a considerable number of corners and we expect to see at least 10 in this fixture. Rochdale's stats are as follows – 5.97 corners per game throughout the season and 6.73 in home games alone. As you can see, the numbers are quite impressive. On the other side, we have Barrow with 5.38 corners per game this season and 5.13 corners in away games alone. It is true that most of Barrow's recent games did not have corners but we think that is a good chance for a high number when two similar and weak teams meet.
