Scunthorpe vs Rochdale – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Rochdale have lost just one of their last five matches in League Two ahead of their tussle with bottom club Scunthorpe on Saturday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.
Both Scunthorpe and Rochdale have been really struggling for victories of late, in fact, the teams have claimed maximum points just once each in their last nine matches in League Two respectively. The Iron have been losing more often than not as they lose their grip on their place in the Football League, though Dale have developed a drawing habit and have shared the spoils in four of their last five fixtures. Both teams look too low on confidence to push for a win and we recommend backing a stalemate in the match result market with that in mind.
Under 2.5 Goals
Rochdale and Scunthorpe played out a largely uneventful 0-0 draw when they last met back in August and a similarly drab encounter could play out in Saturday’s return fixture. Under 2.5 goals has landed in seven of Scunny’s last eight home matches, while four of Dales’ last six skirmishes also produced two or fewer goals. With match-winners in short supply, expect little action against at the Sands Venue Stadium.
Both Teams to Score – No
Bettors should also consider backing both teams not to score in Scunthorpe this weekend. The Iron have failed to register in a massive 45% of their League Two fixtures in 2021/22, while Rochdale couldn’t find the net in 50% of their last six games in the division. Neither side is playing with any rhythm in the final third at present and little in the way of cutting edge is expected in North Lincolnshire.
