Grimsby Preview – Can the Mariners give themselves a boost?

Grimsby have fallen to back to back losses in league two and will kick off on Tuesday night just a couple of points above the drop zone.

So there is a bit of pressure building from a W1 L3 record in their last four games.

It has only been the one league win for them at Blundell Park this season as well in the league, that happening at the start of November over Barrow.

Barrow, for reference, are one place beneath them in the league, so Grimsby have struggled against stronger teams.

The Mariners have netted just the four goals in their five league home fixtures this season (W1 D1 L3).

On the flip side of that, they have conceded an average of 2.2 goals per home game.

For football betting on Tuesday night, Grimsby are the 10/3 underdogs for the match win* (odds taken 23:52 GMT Sunday, 6th December).

One positive for them is that they are undefeated in their last three at home against the Exiles, winning two of those.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 23:52 GMT Sunday, 6th December)


But the club is at a bit of a low at the moment. Across all competitions, the Mariners have lost five of their last six games (W1).

There are big questions mark about where the goals are coming from for them, as only two teams have scored fewer currently in league Two.

Home and away there has been no clean sheet from them in their last four.

In only three of their fourteen league games, this season have Grimsby managed to score the opening goal of a game.

They are once again going to be under some big pressure.


Newport Preview – Will the Exiles sweep the three points?

Newport are in great form at the top of the table.

They have only suffered one loss in their last eight league games and picked up a win on the weekend against Morecambe.

Out on their travels in the league, Newport are W3 D2 L2. But there is a clearer picture of their away from when you break down their opponents.

The two losses and one of the away draws that the Exiles have picked up this season were against current top-six sides.

Other than that, they have been fairly efficient on the road. So it’s no surprise to see them go into this road game as 5/6 odds-on favourites* (odds taken 23:52 GMT Sunday, 6th December).

Newport are averaging 1.57 goals per away game this season and each of their three road successes have been with a clean sheet.

There is an even bigger trend that we spot for Grimsby v Newport betting.

Eight of the ten league victories that Newport have recorded this season have been by just the one-goal margin.

A Newport to win by a 1 goal margin option is at 11/4* (odds taken 23:52 GMT Sunday, 6th December).
