Swindon vs Exeter – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Exeter put their four-match unbeaten run on the line when they take on Swindon on Saturday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.
Exeter Double Chance
Just one place and two points separate 7th-placed Swindon from Exeter in 8th ahead of the teams’ clash on Saturday, though the host’s recent regression could open the door for the Grecians to claim a positive result. Swindon have won only two of their last ten assignments in the league and with their confidence at a low ebb, Exeter can push their unbeaten run to five games at the Robins’ expense.
Both Teams to Score
While results have been underwhelming, Swindon have managed to retain some of their goal-scoring threat, indeed, both teams have notched in 80% of the Robins’ last ten matches, despite Town securing just two victories during the same period. Exeter will expect to breach their host's porous defence, though their haul of just two clean sheets from their last eight away scuffles suggests that backing both teams to register is the way to go.
Exeter +1 goal
A bet on Swindon’s opponents in the +1 goal handicap market would have returned a winning bet in each of the Robins’ last three matches and Town haven’t been able to put in any convincing performances for a while. Exeter meanwhile, don’t tend to concede many (five goals in their last seven games) and with the advantage of a one goal head start, the Grecians can be backed with confidence.
Swindon vs Exeter Match Preview: Key playoff fixture in Wiltshire
Swindon dropped points for the third game in a row on Tuesday evening when they were held to a disappointing draw at home to Crawley, with Louis Reed’s late red card compounding the Robins’ misery. Ben Garner will be determined to resurrect a turnaround in fortunes for Town and the signing of highly-rated striker Louis Barry on loan from Aston Villa could be the spark they need.
Exeter enjoyed some time off during the week while many of their rivals were in action and the Grecians should be well-rested and full of confidence following a four-match unbeaten sequence. Matt Jay’s dry spell is still a major concern for City, though manager Matthew Taylor will hope to have loanee Offrande Zanazala – who has already got off the mark for the club – available again this weekend
