This is a League Two fixture for Tuesday night between Cheltenham and Grimsby.

The two have had very contrasting fortunes so far. Cheltenham are riding high with a good streak of form behind them.

Grimsby meanwhile, find themselves down in the bottom two, but having played fewer games than anyone else up to this point.

Cheltenham Preview – Can Cheltenham make it four wins in a row?

After losing their season-opener at home against Morecambe, Cheltenahm have not looked back.

They have posted three straight wins over Tranmere, Leyton Orient and Crawley without having conceded a single goal.

So they are at 4/6 in the match outright for another win on Tuesday night* (odds taken 23:23 GMT Monday, 12th October).

They were at home on the weekend, banking a 2-0 win over Crawley and they have scored at least two goals in each of their last three.

So that will lead us on to a couple of football betting options.

A third-straight Cheltenham 2-0 correct score option will return a current quote of 13/2* (odds taken 23:23 GMT Monday, 12th October).

Because they have banked three straight clean sheets, there could be value in taking the straight Cheltenham To Win To Nil option at 7/4* (odds taken 23:23 GMT Monday, 12th October).

Our betting prediction:
Cheltenham 2-0

Another factor in favour of Cheltenham is that they have won three of their last four home games against Grimsby.

Last season ended before the Robins got to host Grimsby, but they had picked up a 0-0 draw on the road against them.

The Robins were looking in very good shape for a promotion push last season, when the campaign ended.

They were in fifth place at the time and had recorded a fantastic W11 D5 L2 record at Whaddon Road.


Grimsby Preview – Mariners with some early season struggles

Grimsby have been struggling with a D1 L2 record only from their three games played.

The Mariners have yet to hit the back of the net this season, but ground out their first point of the campaign with a 0-0 at Bolton on the weekend.

In their one other away game this season, Grimsby suffered a 1-0 loss at Walsall. So the big blow out of goals again happened for them at home.

Grimsby were in 15th when last season’s League Two campaign ended.

It should be noted that their game on the weekend against Bolton was after a couple of weeks of cancelled fixtures for them because of quarantine.

So it will be interesting to see what they can do in this one having had a match under their belt on their return.

Grimsby did look in good physical shape on the weekend. They will naturally be looking to find a bit of an outlet up front however.

Grimsby are the 17/4 underdogs for this fixture after their slow start to the campaign* (odds taken 23:23 GMT Monday, 12th October).

Getting three points out of this would be a huge fillip for them.


Cheltenham vs Grimsby Betting Advice

Well it would have to be a home win that we get to support in this fixture as Cheltenham have some good momentum behind them.

The Robins have been watertight in defence as well, condeing just the one goal all season and they have some home form against the Mariners as well.

So the Cheltenahm to win to nil option at 7/4 has some excellent appeal* (odds taken 23:23 GMT Monday, 12th October).


Key Facts – Cheltenham vs Grimsby Betting Tip

  • Cheltenham have won their last three games
  • Cheltenham have won three of their last four home fixtures against the Mariners
  • Grimsby have yet to score a league goal this season


Lending further credence to that is the lack of goals output that Grimbsy have suffered in this campaign.

The other factor is the lack of playing time that Grimsby have had under their belt in the last couple of weeks as well.

For a little extended value we would entertain the Cheltenham 2-0 correct score option that we mentioned at 13/2* (odds taken 23:23 GMT Monday, 12th October).
