Bristol Rovers vs Shrewsbury Prediction
Bristol Rovers was on the road in their previous encounter in the campaign. The Rovers faced Sunderland and lost with a 3-0 score on the board.
Shrewsbury, in the meantime, will be visiting after a 2-3 loss at home against Tranmere in their previous clash in the league.
It has to be noted that Bristol has a faint four-point lead over Shrewsbury in the table. Along with their home ground advantage, it will give a slight edge for the Rovers.
Having lost only four of their 16 home matches so far in the league, the Rovers will be confident about their form at home.
In sharp contrast, Shrewsbury has won only 3 of their 16 away fixtures until now. Also, they are winless in their last eight trips on the road.
Besides, the host has stayed unbeaten in their recent three h2h clashes with Shrewsbury. As such, the odds will be against the visitors in the match.
Since both teams are in a mixed form in the league lately, it will be safer to go with a double chance in the game at 1.40 odds in favor of the home team.
Another safe option for the punters will be in the goals area. Since their recent four h2h fixtures have seen both teams scoring, over 1.5 goals in full-time seems a probability in ninety minutes.
