Tranmere vs Scunthorpe Prediction, Odds and Free Betting Tips (08/01/2021)

One of the best meets one of the worst in the final fixture of Saturday's League Two program. Tranmere are the team with the current-best form in the entire league and they will face Scunthorpe, who are fighting for their place in the league at the complete opposite side of the table.

Tranmere vs Scunthorpe: Top Free Betting Tips

Scunthorpe are the team that has won the least games since the start of the campaign. They only still have chances for survival due to their high number of draws – 10, which is the second-highest in League Two. Which side will grab the three points on Saturday? Despite their disappointing performances, Scunthorpe have been scoring goals in their games but in a match against Tranmere away from home, we do not expect to see much action from them.

Total Goals – Under 2.5

When it comes to this market, there is no better choice than Tranmere. Moreover, Scunthorpe have also had quite a few over 2.5 games since the start of the season but not as few as the hosts. Tranmere have seen more than three goals in just 4 out of 22 games to date. The team has the best defense in the league but they also are not particularly active in attack and do not score a lot.

Match Result – Tranmere

It is obvious which team is the favorite here and we are going for them to win. Tranmere are the tied-best home team in the league. They have won 8 out of their 11 games in front of their crowd this season and it should be mentioned that those three losses came from some of the other contenders from promotion and not teams from the bottom like Scunthorpe. We expect the hosts to win the three points without much trouble here and most likely, the visitors will not even score a goal.

Team Exact Goals – Scunthorpe 0 Goals

As mentioned in the last sentence of the previous bet, we do not expect Tranmere to concede a goal in this match. The hosts have the strongest defense in the league and have conceded just 6 goals in 11 home games. While Scunthorpe have scored an impressive number of goals away for a team at the bottom of the table, we do not see how this will happen unless it is a penalty. It is true that the visitors won by surprise in the previous head-to-head with 1:0 but if this happens again, it will be one of the biggest surprises of the season.
