Scunthorpe vs Colchester: Top Free Betting Tips

Colchester show signs of improvement and this match against the bottom team is the perfect chance for them to get three more points and save themselves from relegation completely.

Total Goals – Under 2.5

This is an interesting game because most matches between Scunthorpe and Colchester end with loads of goals. At the same time, Colchester had more than 2.5 goals in 5/7 recent games. They also had both teams scoring in 5/7 recent games. Even so, Scunthorpe are the weakest team in the league and they struggle to score against any opponent. For instance, Scunthorpe scored a goal in just 4 out of their last 10 fixtures, which is the worst performance in the entire league apart from Leyton Orient's recent winless streak. We think that if we see goals, they will be on Colchester's side but we still do not expect more than two.

Draw No Bet – Colchester

The visitors should be motivated for the win here as they are coming with a three-game defeatless run. This time, they are facing the weakest team in the league and Scunthorpe have won a single game in the last few months. We do not expect anything from the hosts but we aren't too sure about the Colchester win either. For this reason only, we prefer the draw no bet option instead of the clean win for the visitors. In the case of a draw, we will get our money back and lose nothing. Colchester managed to beat Scunthorpe once already this season with 2:1 but this time, we expect either 0:1 or 0:2.

Alternative Corners – Under 10

There should be few corners in this match if we can base our bet on their stats. Both sides have taken few this season overall – Scunthorpe took 4.11 in their matches to date on average while Colchester took 4.60. At the same time, eight out of the last 10 games of Scunthorpe had less than 11 corners. On the other side, Colchester had less than 11 in 6/7 recent games. While our line is even lower – we expect a maximum of 9 – it should be an easy win given that neither side is strong in attack and corners are not a common thing.
