Stockport vs Eastleigh: Top Free Betting Tips
Stockport have been incredible in recent weeks and logically have been placed as a favorite to win this match. Eastleigh had some positive results too but there is one simple fact that should be mentioned – they are terrible visitors. Which side will prevail on Tuesday?
Total Goals – Over 2.5
We have two teams that have had averages above 2.5 goals per game for the entire season. Stockport have had an average of 3.0 goals per match while Eastleigh – 2.7, both after 21 games. Stockport have been quite impressive at home lately although the team did not perform as good in the earlier stages of the league.
Nevertheless, they scored 10 goals in their two most recent home games in the league and 22 goals in just 5 home games overall including the English Cup tournaments. They should be able to cover this line by themselves on a good day but we also expect some help from Eastleigh, at least with one goal.
Full Time Result – Stockport
When you look at the older games, Stockport are far from the best home teams in the league. But we have to remind you again that they scored 22 goals in their most recent 5 home games which is outstanding. Eastleigh are a good home team but away, they have won just 7 points in 9 games. It would be a complete surprise to see Stockport lose or even get a draw. The teams have played two games at Stockport in the past three years and the hosts won both without conceding a goal.
Team Total Goals – Stockport Over 1.5
Wouldn't it be odd to see a 1:0 win or something else in favor of Eastleigh with all the recent games that show a completely different picture? Stockport have been unbelievable at home in recent weeks and we do not see a possibility where they would score less than two or three goals. Eastleigh lost 6/9 away games this season and allowed more than two goals on four occasions. We expect that this will be the fifth.
