Reason For Chester VS Tranmere Betting Tips
These two sides come into this match in contrasting form. Despite winning last time out, Chester have been struggling somewhat of late and are in danger of having their season peter out after any hope of them reaching the play-offs ended with their recent winless run which saw them of six games without collecting three points.
On the other hand, Tranmere are still very much in the hunt for promotion back to the football league and come into this fixture in fine form having won each of their last three on the bounce. With this in mind, coupled with the fact that they still have plenty to play for, siding with the visitors in this fixture looks a decent move. At 6/5, backing ‘Tranmere to Win’ is the way to go here.
The season really is threatening to come to a rather lame end for Chester. They’ve got little chance of making the play-offs, but are highly unlikely to go down. You’d certainly have to question whether they’ll really be up for the fight here against a Tranmere side who’re still scrapping to go up. On top of this, the hosts have been conceding an alarming amount of goals lately (12 in their last five). Against the sizable attacking threat offered by Tranmere, the hosts could find it hard to compete.
Micky Mellon’s side have not only been winning with great regularity in recent weeks, but they’ve also been scoring plenty of goals. The visitors have now notched 15 goals in their last five fixtures – certainly not a total to be sniffed at. In addition, Melon’s men are unbeaten in seven matches, scoring 19 and conceding six in the process. Such figures bod really well against a side who’re struggling to keep goals out.
There’s no doubt that Tranmere are in a good place right now and are chasing promotion with everything they’ve got. Against a team who’ve got little to play for, even at this stage, the visitors should have enough about them to come out on top.
