Halifax vs Scunthorpe: Top Free Betting Tips

Both sides are out of shape and cannot afford to lose this game. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Our first Halifax vs Scunthorpe United is a low scoreline of under 2.5 goals. We do not expect to see a huge scoreline in this match mainly due to the styles of both sides. Scunthorpe's form continues to be bad and Halifax is a team that rarely concedes a lot of goals they are also not a high-scoring team either. Halifax is also one of the better home teams in the league right now and we think that they will win this game to nill.

Match Result Prediction: Halifax to Win

In our second Halifax vs Scunthorpe prediction, we are tipping Halifax to win the game.  With odds of 1.67, there is a 60% chance that the hosts will win this game. It turns out they always win 80% of their games with such odds. After the terrible season starts, Halifax turned into the old dominant side that we remember from last season. Their home performances have been exceptional. The team has seven games without a defeat at home, six of which they won comfortably. More importantly, most were also unders, so we have a good chance here.

On the flip side, with 4.50 odds, the chances of winning this game for Scunthorpe is 22%. Unfortunately, they have always had a a 5% chance of winning a match with such odds.

Correct Score Prediction: 2:0 to Halifax

Lastly, we have settled on a correct score as our third prediction for the game. Bet on Halifax to get a clean-sheet victory of 2-nil. We expect a couple of goals from the home team. Scunthorpe is the weakest club in the league right now and the team has been conceding massive numbers over the past few months. There has rarely been a case when they did not concede more than one goal in an away game.

Halifax vs Scunthorpe: Form, Recent Games, and News

Halifax Preview

How did Halifax turn from one of the best teams into one of the worst in a few months' time? Last year, they were 4th in the end and had the absolute best defence in the league. They started the season with five rounds without a win but right now, the team is one of the few in good form and has three wins in the last five games. They have improved to be one of the strongest home teams in the league now but their away performances continue to be bad and this is the reason why they are unlikely to reach the playoffs.

Scunthorpe Preview

Who would have thought that the problems at Scunthorpe run so deep that the team would be the weakest even in the National League? There is no point in talking about the League Two campaign last season – they conceded nearly 100 goals and won 3-4 games in the entire season. But going from last in L2 to one of the last teams in the National League is a disaster and Scunthorpe needs immediate improvement. The team has had a single win in the last ten games and the difference with the teams above the relegation zone continues to grow with each round.
