Top Bets and Predictions for Grimsby vs Mansfield

Mansfield needs to win if they want to make their journey through League Two this season a good one.

Over 2.5 Goals

Mansfield is the second-best over 2.5 goals team this season with 21 of those games played and leading the league with 64 goals scored, so going for more than two and a half goals in this Grimsby vs Mansfield prediction is a reasonable choice. The average record of goals scored during their games is 2.8 per match which is, once again, the second-best mark in the league. Mansfield had two out of their past five matches with more than three goals scored. Grimsby had 18 ‘over' matches this term including three in a row. The last time these teams met the score was a goalless draw. Only one out of their past five encounters covered the bet in question.

Mansfield to Win

Even though it is quite a task to look at the possible outcomes for this Grimsby vs Mansfield match, it is hard to argue that all the motivation to get the win is falling on the shoulders of the visiting team. Mansfield is just outside the coveted top-seven position, and even though they had six straight matches without losing, there were only two wins earned in those games. Their last match ended without any goals, and throwing a wider net when we check their h2h record, both teams won three times in their last ten outings.
