Bristol Rovers vs Sutton – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Sutton take a run of strong form with them to Bristol to take on an inconsistent Rovers outfit in the FA Cup. Find our top three predictions for the contest below.

Sutton Double Chance

League Two outfits Bristol Rovers and Sutton have been drawn together in the second round of the FA Cup and the teams’ respective placings in the division they share could provide some indication about who might prevail on Saturday. Sutton (6th ) are a whopping ten spots ahead of the Pirates (16th) in the fourth tier and having won six of their last eight assignments on the road in all competitions, Matt Gray’s troops could be worth siding with the double chance market.

Under 2.5 Goals

While their overall results have been strong, Sutton’s recent fixtures have been low value affairs in terms of entertainment and six of their last seven matches have produced under 2.5 goals. The Amber and Chocolates have shown a robust side to their character and their excellent defending has been rewarded with plenty of clean sheets. Sutton’s defence-first focus could lead to another game decided by slender margins again on Saturday and we recommend sticking with the under 2.5 goals market with that in mind.

First Goal: Sutton

Sutton’s strong defensive platform and mean defensive record could also be taken advantage of in another niche market this weekend. Matt Gray’s charges aren’t conceding many and as a result they have been a reliable option to score first in their games. Indeed, Sutton broke the deadlock in each of their last six matches and bettors are advised to back them to repeat that trick at the Memorial Stadium.

Here are the top stats for the game along with a tool to help you pick the best odds.

Bristol Rovers vs Sutton preview: All League Two clash at the Memorial Stadium

Bristol Rovers have been underperforming in League Two this term, winning just six times in 19 fixtures in the division overall since their recent relegation. The fact then, that they have drawn opposition from the same league in the FA Cup should mean that they approach Saturday’s game against Sutton with little confidence. The Pirates have won just three times in their last 12 tussles in all competitions and little improvement is expected this week.

Sutton are enjoying their foray into league football following their summer promotion and they are targeting a lengthy cup run to complement their impressive league performances. Matt Gray’s side are in the playoff positions in League Two, holding their own against the division’s leading lights and though they have yet to face Bristol Rovers this season, Sutton will have nothing to fear from their date with the Pirates.
