Odds and Top Predictions for Crawley vs Grimsby

Crawley will be under more pressure in a match against Grimsby considering they are the ones trying to stay in League Two for next season.

Under 2.5 Goals

There are not a lot of goals being scored between these sides, and with the serious nature of the match regarding this Crawley vs Grimsby prediction, it is reasonable to assume there won't be many goals scored this time around as well. The home team had three under 2.5 goals matches from their last five, including the final three they played, and Grimsby had six straight games with fewer than three goals scored. This season Crawley had 18 ‘under' matches compared to 21 by their next opponent. However, their h2h record speaks a different story, the last four times they played against each other, the games went over the mark.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

For the final prediction in this Crawley vs Grimsby matchup, we are taking a cue from their h2h record. Four of their last five encounters had both teams scoring a goal, but their last match, or rather, the first one this season ended with a 3-0 Grimsby victory. When we look at their current league form, Crawley had two BTTS games from their last five, and Grimsby carries the same record. The average number of goals being scored during Crawley's matches stands at 2.7 while Grimsby's hold is at 2.2.
