Reason For Shrewsbury VS Charlton Betting Tips

Having previously struggled near the foot of the table, Shrewsbury have certainly turned a corner of late and, thanks to a string of good performances, have climbed out of the relegation zone. They may have lost narrowly last time out at MK Dons, but they remain a decent side. As for Charlton, well, their season seems to be petering out fast. The visitors are without a win in six matches and are starting to look somewhat laboured, particularly in the final third.

Against a Charlton side who’ve looked very poor of late, Shrewsbury have a decent opportunity here to regain winning ways. Considering the way these two have performed recently, it’s a real surprise that the hosts are as big as they are in the betting. At odds of 11/10, backing ‘Shrewsbury Draw No Bet’ really catches the eye here.

Home is definitely where the heart is for Shrewsbury at the moment. Paul Hurst’s men have won each of their last four on home soil, scoring six and conceded just two in the process. On top of this, the hosts have lost just one of their last ten at New Meadow – and even that was a narrow defeat against the in-form promotion chasing Fleetwood.

What’s particularly impressive is the number of clean sheets Hurst’s side have kept at home in recent weeks. In their last ten matches at New Meadow, the hosts have conceded on just three occasions, keeping seven clean sheets. Such defensive consistency is certainly something to be admired, especially considering that this side were previously struggling.

Shrewsbury’s string of strong defensive displays really doesn’t bode well for the visitors here. Charlton have been struggling to hit their stride in the final third recently and have now failed to score in three of their last five matches. They may have scored three away at Rochdale recently, but that game was a bit of an anomaly. Against a sturdy Shrewsbury back-line they could find it hard.

If the hosts can continue to defend well in front of their own fans then they appear to have a much better chance than their price suggests and it’s hard to see them coming away from this match with nothing. On this basis, backing Shrewsbury on the ‘Draw No Bet’ market is the way to go.

Head To Head

These two have only previously met on two occasions with each side winning one of those. When they met earlier in the season, it was Charlton who came out on top (3-0).
