West Ham v Shrewsbury Town Betting Tips: 1, 2018-01-16

FA Cup & League Cup Tips
WEST HAM v SHREWSBURY TOWN Tuesday 16th January 2018 - Kickoff: 1945hrs Football - England - FA Cup Betting Tips West Ham will be looking to take advantage at home against League One side Shrewsbury Town when the two teams face off again in this evening’s FA Cup replay, following a 0-0 draw at the New Meadow ten days ago. West Ham are really starting to click now under new manager, David Moyes, and this became very evident in their dismantling of Huddersfield Town in a 4-1 win at the John Smith’s Stadium which raised a few eyebrows, particularly in the convincing manner of the victory. The Hammers are now unbeaten in their last five matches overall in all competitions, and they’ll be keen to pit this to bed as soon as possible on Tuesday night in order to avoid any unnecessary extra time. Moyes will be keen to keep the winning feeling going here this evening I daresay. Shrewsbury Town received a dent to their confidence on the weekend when they lost 3-1 away at promotion rivals, Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park, and with the chasing pack hard on their heels in the race for an automatic promotion spot in League One, I wonder if The Shrews will be as keen as West Ham in this cup replay. League duties certainly take priority over cup runs these days, but Shrewsbury have been impressive in the FA Cup so far as they’ve disposed of National League side, Aldershot Town 5-0 in the first round, and then took care of League Two outfit, Morecambe 2-0 in the previous round. But they missed their chance of a giant-killing at home ten days ago against West Ham, and with a trip to the capital for this evening’s replay, I feel they may well have missed the boat.

Shrewsbury Town v West Ham Betting Tips: BTTS, 2018-01-07

FA Cup & League Cup Tips
SHREWSBURY TOWN v WEST HAM Sunday 7th January 2018 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - FA Cup Betting Tips The third round of the FA Cup continues on Sunday, with more Premier League teams in action against teams in the lower leagues, and my next pick is a real David versus Goliath with League One outfit, Shrewsbury Town, taking on West Ham at the new Meadow Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Shrewsbury Town have confounded all the critics so far this season as they sit in second place in the third tier, just two points behind league leaders, Wigan Athletic, and The Shrews have proved they’re not a flash in the pan as the season has just ticked past the halfway mark. The Shropshire outfit have won their last four league matches on the trot at home, and they’ve picked up clean sheets in the FA Cup first and second rounds with 5-0 and 2-0 wins over Aldershot Town and Morecambe respectively. Look out for forward trio, Whalley, Payne and Morris here. West Ham’s situation has vastly improved under new manager, David Moyes despite a slow start to his reign, as The Hammers have now lost just once in their last seven in the Premier League, which includes a 1-0 home win over Chelsea. However, concerns still remain over West Ham’s performances and results away from home where they’ve managed to pick up just one win from their last eight trips overall, and with the priority being to retain their Premier League status, I fancy Moyes to shuffle his pack for this cup tie as his side are still not out of the woods yet. The Hammers are just two points above the bottom three, and although Moyes runs the risk of a potential banana skin here, the financial rewards for staying in the top flight far outweigh any cup success. Pick: Both teams to score @ 1.90 Marathonbet

Shrewsbury Town v Blackpool Betting Tips: 1, 2017-12-16

League One/Two Tips
SHREWSBURY TOWN v BLACKPOOL Saturday 16th December 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - League One Betting Tips Shrewsbury Town will no doubt be eager to get back to winning ways on Saturday afternoon when they play host to Blackpool, following a string of disappointing results which have seen them relinquish top spot in League One. Recent defeats to Peterborough United, Bury and Bradford City have threatened to undo all The Shrews’ good work earlier in the season where they put together an excellent 15-match unbeaten run, but it should be noted that two of these three recent losses were incurred away from home. Shrewsbury still hold a very good home record of  7-1-1 14/4 with their one loss coming last time out to fourth placed Bradford City, but they have a great chance of bouncing back here, particularly with six clean sheets under their belts to date and forward Payne (7 goals) up front. Visitors, Blackpool, sit in a mid-table position having endured a frustrating campaign so far this season as they can’t seem to put any sort of run together following a promising start to the new campaign back in August. The Seasiders had earlier put together a seven-match unbeaten run in August and September but have since slumped to record just a further two wins from their subsequent 13 matches which has left them eight points adrift of the play-off pack. An away record of  2-4-4  11/13 along with just one win from their last six on their travels makes a potential play-off place now a seemingly distant dream, and they’ll need to step up against Shrewsbury today if they’re to stake a claim for a top six finish I fancy.

Rotherham United v Shrewsbury Town Betting Tips: BTTS, 2017-11-18

League One/Two Tips
ROTHERHAM UNITED v SHREWSBURY TOWN Saturday 18th November 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - League One Betting Tips One of the pick of this Saturday’s League One fixtures features a top six clash between Rotherham United and Shrewsbury Town at the New York Stadium with both teams harbouring serious promotion ambitions. Paul Warne’s Rotherham outfit rescued a point with a late, late equaliser away at Doncaster Rovers in the south Yorkshire derby last weekend, and this will give them a much needed boost when they play host to League One leaders, Shrewsbury on Saturday. Rotherham are without a win from their last four matches in League One as they’ve suffered defeats to AFC Wimbledon and Gillingham, and drawn with Oxford United and Doncaster, but The Posh are the highest goalscorers in the division, and will turn to leading scorer Moore (13 goals) as they look to return to winning ways. Visitors Shrewsbury Town now hold a slender one point cushion over second placed Wigan Athletic at the top of League One following a 1-0 defeat away at Peterborough United last time out, so The Shrews will be keen to get a result of sorts against free-scoring Rotherham here today. Defeat at Peterborough was their first loss of the new campaign for Shrewsbury who have lost just twice in their last 21 league matches, and with a reasonable looking away record of  4-3-1  10/7 behind them, they should give a good account of themselves in this important clash. Shrewsbury’s leading goalscorer is Payne (6 goals) but he’s well supported by the likes of Morris (4 goals), Rodman (3 goals) and fellow forward, John-Lewis. To sum up, I’m expecting both teams to score here with both clubs keen to enhance their promotion credentials. Pick: Both teams to score @ 1.75 Marathonbet

Shrewsbury v Fleetwood Betting Tips: 1, 2017-10-21

League One/Two Tips
SHREWSBURY TOWN v FLEETWOOD TOWN Saturday 21st October 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - League One Betting Tips Shrewsbury Town continue to go from strength to strength in League One following a 4-0 win at home over Bristol Rovers during the week, and I daresay Shrews manager, Paul Hurst, will be wanting more of the same on Saturday afternoon when they play host to Fleetwood Town. The midweek win over Bristol Rovers extended Shrewsbury’s unbeaten run in League One to an incredible 14 matches as the home side remain the only team yet to be beaten in the third tier, and they sit top of the league with a two point margin over second placed Wigan Athletic. Shrewsbury’s great start has put a useful seven point cushion between them and third placed Bradford City, and with an impressive home record of  6-1-0  13/3 under their belts to date, they look well placed for further success today. Forwards Payne (6 goals) and Morris (4 goals) are the hosts’ leading goalscorers. Fleetwood Town sit in ninth place and have enjoyed a reasonable start to their League One campaign so far as they head into this clash having suffered just one defeat from their last five matches which was a 3-1 loss at home to Charlton Athletic. Recent wins over Bradford City and Plymouth Argyle, both away from home, should give the Cod Army confidence of getting something from this fixture, as well as recent points against Rochdale and Scunthorpe United in 2-2 and 1-1 draws respectively. Fleetwood seem to have picked themselves up on their travels after losing two of their first three matches on the road, but they’ve since improved their away record to a more respectable looking  3-1-2  9/9. But Fleetwood will be facing an in-form and confident Shrews outfit, and I’ll back the hosts to continue their strong run on home turf here today. Pick: Shrewsbury Town to win @ 2.10 bet365

Shrewsbury v Southend Betting Tips: 1, 2017-09-12

League One/Two Tips
SHREWSBURY TOWN v SOUTHEND UNITED Tuesday 12th September 2017 - Kickoff: 1945hrs Football - England - League One Betting Tips Domestic football continues on Tuesday night and my next pick features surprise package, Shrewsbury Town, taking on Southend United in League One at the Meadow, with Shrewsbury looking to maintain their position at the top of the English third tier. The Shrews signalled their early intent to the rest of the division on Saturday when they secured all three points in a 1-0 home win over promotion favourites, Wigan Athletic, and they hold home advantage once more on Tuesday night when Southend United come to town. Shrewsbury have won five of their six league matches to date, and along with a 100% home record which stands at  3-0-0  5/2 which includes wins over Northampton Town, Rochdale and Wigan, the hosts look a good bet here. Incidentally, they registered a 1-0 home win over tonight’s opponents, Southend United, in their last home match of last season. Visitors Southend United find themselves in the bottom half of League One following just one league win so far in this new season, which was a surprising opening day win over Blackburn Rovers 2-1 at their Roots Hall ground. However, since then, The Shrimps have gone five league matches without a win as they’ve stumbled to draws against Plymouth Argyle, Gillingham and Rochdale, as well as suffering defeats to Rotherham United 5-0 and Saturday’s 2-1 loss away at Charlton Athletic. With just one away win from their last six on the road overall, and four defeats during this recent miserable sequence, Southend will have their work cut out to get anything out of an in-form Shrewsbury outfit here this evening. Pick: Shrewsbury Town to win @ 2.30 Betfair

Bristol Rovers v Shrewsbury Betting Tips: 1, 2017-04-01

League One/Two Tips
BRISTOL ROVERS v SHREWSBURY TOWN Saturday 1st April 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - League One Betting Tips Bristol Rovers will be looking forward to returning to their Memorial Stadium following back-to-back defeats on the road in their last two away matches at Bury and Coventry City respectively, but they can bounce back here today to revive their push for a play-off place. Rovers will play host to League One strugglers Shrewsbury Town this afternoon as The Pirates look to extend their unbeaten run to 11 matches on home turf, while their overall home record stands at an impressive  11-6-3  36/22 which includes recent back-to-back home wins over Southend United and Chesterfield. Midfielder Bodin (9 goals) and striker Harrison (7 goals) have assisted in Bristol Rovers’ successful season to date, but manager Dave Clarke will be hoping his side can take all three points here which could move them within striking distance of the play-off pack. Visitors Shrewsbury Town sit just one league position and one point above the relegation zone in League One ahead of their difficult trip to Bristol this afternoon having now gone four matches without a win in the English third tier. Draws with lowly Coventry City and Chesterfield were followed by defeats to Port Vale and Bolton Wanderers, and now The Shrews look to have a very nervous last few weeks of the season ahead of them as they try to avoid dropping into the bottom four. However, an away record of  3-6-11  19/32 certainly hasn’t done them any favours, neither have three defeats from their last four matches on the road with losses incurred at Peterborough United, MK Dons and Port Vale. I can therefore see only one winner here, and that’s Bristol Rovers. Pick: Bristol Rovers to win @ 1.80 Bet Victor

Scunthorpe v Shrewsbury Betting Tips: 1, 2017-02-11

League One/Two Tips
SCUNTHORPE UNITED v SHREWSBURY TOWN Saturday 11th February 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - League One Betting Tips Scunthorpe’s recent four-match sequence without defeat came to an end last weekend when they went down 3-1 away at Southend United, but The Iron will be looking to bounce back at Glanford Park this Saturday when they play host to League One strugglers Shrewsbury Town. Scunthorpe are one of only two teams in the English third tier to remain unbeaten at home so far this season (along with Bradford City), as this afternoon’s hosts hold a solid  9-5-0  33/12 record on home soil which includes recent wins over Millwall, Bury and Port Vale. Scunthorpe are actually unbeaten in their last 26 home matches in League One and having kept 12 clean sheets during this impressive run of form, I can’t see any reason why they can’t keep this run going today. Onto Shrewsbury Town and they currently occupy 18th place in League One following an upturn in recent form which has seen them put together a five-match unbeaten run which includes wins over Bradford City, Oldham Athletic and Bury. These three recent wins however were all gained at their Greenhous Stadium, while their resukts away from home have been less convincing; a record of  2-5-8  14/25 on their travels suggests they’ll find it tough going to keep up with Scunthorpe here, particularly as they’ve managed just two clean sheets on the road to date all season. In addition, The Shrews have conceded 2 goals or more on 9 occasions from their 15 away matches in total which could also spell trouble for them at Glanford Park. Pick: Scunthorpe United to win @ 1.67 bet365

Rochdale v Shrewsbury Betting Tips: 1, 2016-12-30

League One/Two Tips
ROCHDALE v SHREWSBURY TOWN Friday 30th December 2016 - Kickoff: 1945hrs Football - England - League One Betting Tips Rochdale secured another three points to their tally for the season on Boxing Day when they cruised to a 3-0 home win over struggling Chesterfield and they’ll no doubt be looking for more of the same on Friday night when they entertain fourth from bottom club Shrewsbury Town. The newly named Crown Oil Arena (which replaced Spotland) is the venue this evening as Rochdale go in search of posting a fourth consecutive win in League One following earlier wins over current league leaders Scunthorpe United as well as victories over Northampton Town and the aforementioned Chesterfield. Rochdale have now chalked up nine consecutive wins on home turf amidst an impressive overall record of  9-1-2  26/8 and they’ve kept a total of seven clean sheets to date too. The forward trio of Andrew, Davies and Henderson have registered a total of 17 goals between them so far this season. Visitors Shrewsbury Town have had their own problems of late as they sit fourth from bottom in League One and they head up north for Friday night’s clash with high-flying Rochdale sitting in the relegation pack. The Shrews have produced mixed displays in recent matches as they’ve recorded wins against Millwall and Bristol Rovers but have also fallen to defeats against Fleetwood Town and Bolton Wanderers, and another tough trip to Lancashire beckons on Friday night as well. Shrewsbury’s away record stands at a disappointing  2-3-7 11/21 which includes three defeats from their last four on the road with defeats at Sheffield United, Fleetwood and Bolton and they’ve kept just two clean sheets on their travels so far. Pick: Rochdale to win @ 1.67 bet365

Bolton v Shrewsbury Betting Tips: 1, 2016-12-26

Championship Tips
BOLTON WANDERERS v SHREWSBURY TOWN Monday 26th December 2016 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - League One Betting Tips Next, I take a look at the English lower leagues and in particular League One as we hit the midway stage of the domestic season in the English third tier, with my first game featuring a Bolton Wanderers side keen to make a swift return to the Championship. Bolton have made a good start to their campaign in League One following their disappointing showing in the Championship which ended in relegation last season, but with an impressive home record so far which stands at  7-3-1  17/6 which includes five wins on the trot, The Trotters look to be in the box seat here today. Recent wins gained over Oldham Athletic, Port Vale, Millwall, Coventry City and Gillingham has seen Bolton build momentum at their Macron Stadium and they’ll also be keen to bounce back from defeat last time out when they lost 1-0 away at Chesterfield. Visitors Shrewsbury Town head into this Boxing Day clash in confident mood having put together back-to-back wins against Millwall and Bristol Rovers who are both situated in and around the mid-table to bottom half of the division, but they’ll face a stern examination at Bolton this afternoon I daresay. The Shrews’ recent win at Millwall ended a dismal run of seven league matches without a win away from home in League One, and it remains to be seen whether they’ve turned a corner or if this was a rare victor on the road. Shrewsbury’s away record so far stands at a disappointing  2-3-6  10/19 with their only other success on their travels being a 3-2 win at bottom club Oldham Athletic back in September. Pick: Bolton Wanderers to win @ 1.50 bet365
