Best Odds and Predictions for Doncaster vs Colchester

Both of these teams don't have any relevant ambitions before the season ends, their only goal is to finish the year on a positive note.

Over 2.5 Goals

When we look at the two-and-a-half goal mark for this Doncaster vs Colchester prediction, the home team looks like a logical choice. Doncaster had three out of their last four games going over the line and with the current negative trend regarding their form, it seems viable that they will be scored upon for the 12th match in a row. For Colchester, it is a bit different. They had only two games that went over the 2.5 goals limit from their last five matches and in both games, they were the ones who scored four goals in each game. When we look at these teams' h2h record, two of their games from the past five outings covered the bet, and once again, Colchester scored a couple of impressive wins.

Draw

We are going to give a benefit of the doubt toward a home team ahead of this final prediction for the Doncaster vs Colchester duel. They are winless in their past nine matches with only two draws to claim while Colchester made their living splitting games with their opponents. Interestingly, Doncaster is one of only three teams this season that had a single-digit draws number at seven which is also the lowest mark in the league. Colchester, on the other hand, played 13 draw games. Out of the last five outings between these sides, only one ended with them sharing the spoils.

Draw odds: 9/4 (3.25) – 30.8%

Colchester odds: 5/4 (2.25) – 44.4%

The Doncaster vs Colchester odds are set and in a somewhat surprising turn of events, the visiting team has been touted as the expected winner by the bookmakers. The probability of their win is just shy of 45 percent which is impressive enough considering their league position. However, the reasoning for this kind of odds surely lies in the fact that Colchester has been playing well lately, much better than their opponent on this day. For all the latest predictions, you can check our football betting tips today page, and concerning the match in question, here are some of your options: If you don't trust the bookie's perspective and choose to take Doncaster, you can make a solid wager in context of the home team's win alongside BTTS which would give you odds up to 11/2 (6.50) – 15.4%.
