Sutton vs Colchester Prediction, Odds and Free Betting Tips (18/01/2022)

Sutton face Colchester in one of the rare matches in League Two where we have a clear and obvious favorite. Colchester are coming with four consecutive losses and serious issues. Sutton, on the other end, have been one of the strongest teams in recent weeks.

Sutton vs Colchester: Top Free Betting Tips

Sutton and Colchester played already in 2022 for the EFL Trophy on January 4. As expected, Sutton won this match and will be motivated to repeat that result again on Tuesday. This will be only the third-ever game between these teams and both fixtures this season were won by the hosts.

Total Goals – Over 2.5

We have two teams at completely opposite forms but we expect to see at least three goals in this fixture. It is even quite possible that Sutton themselves manage to score three for this bet. Either way, we expect Colchester to score one at least and help us win this bet. The visitors have had a terrible run and have not won a league game in 6 rounds.

Yet, in most fixtures, they did not perform badly but their defense is simply too weak. They scored against Sutton in the EFL Trophy match on January 4 and were actually the better-performing team on the pitch. They should be able to score one goal on top of the ones we expect from Sutton.

Match Result – Sutton

Sutton have been one of the strongest home teams in the league over the past two months. The team has won 8 out of its 10 recent home games and we expect to see another victory here against Colchester that are struggling for survival in the league.

As mentioned already, Sutton won the past two head-to-head games this season – once with 2:1 and once with 1:3. Colchester have not won an away game in 8 consecutive matches, so it will be a surprise to see it happen against one of the strongest teams here.

Team Total Goals – Sutton Over 1.5 Goals

Sutton have been quite impressive when it comes to scoring goals and we expect to see at least two for the third time against Colchester. Although they had quite a few games that they won with 1:0 or scored less than two, Colchester's current situation suggests that the hosts should be dominating on the pitch. The visitors conceded more than 2 goals in 6/12 away games this season and at least 2 in their four most recent outings.
