Ebbsfleet vs Fleetwood: Our top betting tips
Ebbsfleet have been flying down in the National League South this season as they sit top of the table. It will take an almighty effort to overcome their League One opposition though. Do they have enough in their arsenal to do so? Find out with our Ebbsfleet vs Fleetwood match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.
Backing a draw
We kick off our tips for this game by backing Ebbsfleet to earn a replay. They've lost their last couple of games but a slightly longer term view shows them to be in a good place with those two defeats their first since April – that means they've had a 30 game unbeaten run ended! They're obviously facing a marked step up in quality when Fleetwood arrive but they've not been ripping things up; they've not won in four away games and have won just two of their last 10 games on the road. With Ebbsfleet being at home the prospect of an upset is much more likely and we can see them grabbing a draw.
Both teams will score
Our next prediction for this game sees us backing both teams to score. Ebbsfleet have seen both teams score in three of their last five games. Fleetwood meanwhile have seen each of their last four games feature goals at both ends. Given how well Ebbsfleet have been performing of late they're highly likely to have a go at Fleetwood despite their underdog status; that will further increase the likelihood of this being an open match.

Fleetwood are in a no-win situation here. If they win then it's just job done. If they lose then it's a disaster. They have a vastly more talented squad but this is a real banana skin owing to the form of their hosts; expect a strong lineup.
Fleetwood Predicted lineup – Lynch, Nsiala, Holgate, Earl, Rooney, Batty, Warrington, Andrew, Vela, Morton, Mendes Gomes
