Predictions and Top Odds for Crewe vs Bradford

This is the earlier postponed match of round 38 where promotion playoffs candidate Bradford is looking for a crucial three points to put them over the line and into the top seven of the rankings.

Bradford to Win

We are going with the team that needs the win in this Crewe vs Bradford prediction. The visiting team will be fine with a draw as well, but considering that Crewe has nothing to play for in this match, there could be some chances for Bradford to get the lead early and take the victory. There weren't any goals when these teams met for the first time earlier this season, but in the previous four matches, Bradford won three times while Crewe was a one-time winner. The dangerous aspect for Bradford is Crewe's home record which has been impressive lately. They won five out of their last six home matches while Bradford's away record is second-best in the league standing at eleven wins, six draws, and five losses.

Over 2.5 Goals

For the final prediction in this Crewe vs Bradford match, we are going with the over 2.5 goals. Their h2h record doesn't confirm the option of more than two goals because there was only one match they played against each other that went over the line. However, Bradford played four over 2.5 goals matches from their past five league encounters and for their opponent, that number is two out of five. However, three games that Crewe played finished with a 2-0 result. Looking at the season overall, Crewe has played 18 ‘over' games while Bradford had one more game of at least three goals scored in a contest.

Potential lineup: Booth, Finney, McDonald, O'Riordan, Mellor, Thomas, Finnigan, Tabiner, Long, Baker-Richardson, Agyei.

Bradford

The visiting team needs only a point to secure its place in the top seven which puts them in a position fighting for promotion. There are three teams inside these seven spots on 75 points with Bradford being one of them, but the visiting team on this day has the game in hand at Crewe that could prove to be decisive.

Potential lineup: Lewis, Halliday, Stubbs, Crhchlow-Noble, Ridehalgh, Gilliead, Smallwood, Banks, Walker, Nevers, Cook.

Player to Watch: Andy Cook

The man of the hour is Andy Cook, the star striker for Bradford who tops the league with 24 goals and six assists. Cook's ascension this season gave much relevance to Bradford's promotion playoffs credentials.
