Crawley Town – Cheltenham Match Prediction | 29-08-2019 10:00

In the betting, there are two angles that appeal. Crawley, who at home have offered significantly more going forward than Cheltenham on the road, have been rather cavalier in their approach this term, but they showed in the week that they can grind out a result. Firstly, Crawley to Win & Under 3.5 Goals makes plenty of appeal. Add in the fact that theyve given little away in two home games, conceding an average of 0.79 expected goals for and backing the hosts to beat a Cheltenham side that is yet to score away from home without running riot looks like a viable option.

Cheltenham have also scored plenty of goals in League Two this term. Saturdays visitors go to Broadfield Stadium having notched eight in five, scoring twice in each of their last two. From a creativity point of view, theyve not been as imposing as Crawley, as theyve created a far more modest average of 1.14 expected goals for, though they wont care too much about that, especially ahead of a match against open-looking opposition, who for all their attacking strength, have given quite a bit away this term.

In the last 6 months, the home team managed to win 6 out of 17 matches. In the current season, Crawley won 50% (1 out of 2) of the matches in their own stadium. While it was enough to draw one match, eleven one match ended without points. 1 times it was enough to score one point, while 1 times the guests took all points.
