Bristol Rovers Preview – Can the Pirates grab precious points?

Things are starting to look a little desperate for Rovers at the moment sitting in the League One relegation zone.

They have lost four of their last five and return to midweek action after back-to-back losses.

But those latest two defeats were away from home and they have at least won two of their last three on home turf.

In the match outright for League One football betting the win for Bristol Rovers is at 7/4* (odds recorded 2200 GMT, March 7th, 2021).

At the Memorial, there has been a return of W5D1 L9 for Bristol Rovers this season.

They have scored there at an average of 1.1 goals per game this season, but overall in the season, they do average under a goal per game.

It has been only the two clean sheets that Pirates have managed at home this season.

They have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last seven home fixtures in the division.

There also hasn’t been a draw in any of the last twelve home games for Bristol Rovers.

Earlier this season Bristol Rovers lost 6-1 against Accrington, so won’t be fancying facing them again.

Our betting prediction:
Accrington 1 Goal Winning Margin

Bet at Bet365

(odds recorded 2200 GMT, March 7th, 2021)


Rovers are winless in ten league fixtures against Accrington at the moment and on home soil are winless in five, losing out of those.

So things don’t really stack up here for Bristol Rovers.

Six of their nine home losses this season have happened against teams currently in the top half of the table.

In that sequence of games, Bristol Rovers failed to score in five games.

So as a football betting option the Both Teams NOT To Score option is at 11/10 to consider* (odds recorded 2200 GMT, March 7th, 2021).

It could be another tough night for Bristol Rovers.


Accrington Preview – Can Accrington earn some momentum

It has not been all plain sailing for Accrington recently either who have won two of their last eight.

They did get a win over Swindon on the weekend to give themselves a nice lift.

This does look like a good opportunity for them to add to that victory.

In the match outright the away win is at a quote of 7/5* (odds recorded 2200 GMT, March 7th, 2021).

Their recent patchy form has left Accrington one place outside of the playoff places, by two points.

But they do have games in hand over some of those above them, but they will keenly want to get the momentum going again.

They haven’t done badly on their travels, recently having suffered one loss in their last five away games (W1 D3).

In their four away games played against teams currently 19th or leave, Accrington have a W3 L1 record from that.

It’s not been fantastic away form from Accrington but they look the stronger option of the two.

They have taken a clean sheet in a third of their away games.

If Accrington land the away win, the 1 goal winning margin at 3/1 looks like a pretty viable betting option* (odds recorded 2200 GMT, March 7th, 2021).

Accrington have scored an average of 1.47 goals per away game and have conceded at an average of 1.4.

So the stats are nothing spectacular, but they have won a third of their road games to nil.

They have been winning at the halftime break in 7 of their 15 away games this season, which has been a good positive first-half return.

Accrington have opened the scoring 9 of 15 away games.

So we expect them to get on the board first and if they do, then it will probably be a long way back for Bristol Rovers.

Accrington haven’t exactly been in red-hot winning form recently, but this is a game which they should be winning.

This is a golden opportunity for them to put a big three points on the board for the play-off places.
