Total Goals – Under 2.5
It is a fact that most games between Rochdale and Northampton had a bunch of goals in recent years – six out of the last eight games between them ended with both teams scoring goals. However, we should take a closer look at Northampton and their games overall and in recent weeks. Northampton have had the third-fewest games with over 2.5 goals this season – only 11 out of 32 games. The visitors have had 9 out of their last 10 games with less than 3 goals and they have conceded the least goals in recent months out of the entire league. There are often cases that they even don't score either.
Match Result – Draw
Northampton had a bunch of draws this season, most of which in away games. However, we should focus on Rochdale's performances – the team with the most draws since the start of the campaign. Rochdale have had 14 draws out of 30 games to date and eight of those 14 happened at home. Most of the games between these two teams over the recent years also ended in draws. We think that we will see something like this as Northampton have not been a high-scoring team at all and if Rochdale's defense is on point, we might see a 0:0 or 1:1 max.
Team Corners – Northampton Under 4.5
Northampton took a considerable number of corners on average per game this season – 4.63 – but most of those happened in home games. On the road, Northampton are the team that has taken the least corners out of the entire league and the stats are far below the stats of all other teams – only 3.50 corners per game on the road. It is true that Rochdale gave their opponents an average of 4.71 corners per game at home but we think that Northampton will have a difficult time against this opponent. The overall corners market is also a good option for the under 11 corners.
