Predictions and Top Odds for Grimsby vs Wimbledon

Wimbledon has spiraled toward the relegation zone in the last couple of months, but fortunately for the team from London, that won't be the case this time around.

Over 2.5 Goals

When a team is in bad shape as is the case with Wimbledon, there are not many positive expectations. Winning only once in their past ten matches put the team in a position to look at the sides at the bottom of the league standings. Wimbledon has played a total of 25 matches that featured more than two goals in the back of the net. We can say that is an average stat more in line to be put in the ‘under' category. However, they played four out of the past five matches with over 2.5 goals. Grimsby, on the other hand, has played five games in a row with fewer than three goals scored.

Grimsby to Win

The final match of the season for both clubs and this particular Grimsby vs Wimbledon prediction is about the home team who won their last two games in front of their fans. That is in stark contrast to Wimbledon who haven't won an away match in ten encounters in a row. When it comes to their h2h matchups, there are only three historically, and the first two were played over ten years ago with each team winning a game. The first match between them this term ended with a Wimbledon win. One goal was the difference.

Team News, Preview, and Grimsby vs Wimbledon Lineups

Grimsby

The home team hasn't had any real objective for some time, ever since they realized that the club doesn't have a chance at promotion playoffs and that it won't be relegated. That is a difficult situation to deal with when trying to motivate players, and it can be said that coach Paul Hurst has done a fine job of doing just that. Grimsby has won two out of their last four matches and will be the favorites for the final clash of the season.

Provisional lineup: Crocombe, Efete, Smith, Waterfall, Maher, Driscoll-Glennon, Holohan, Green, Clifton, Taylor, Lloyd.

Wimbledon

When you win only once in your last ten matches, the team is in trouble and that is the case with Wimbledon whose form took a nose dive for the past couple of months. They lost six times in those ten appearances and moved to the bottom four of the league table while once being placed in the upper part of the standings. The visiting players can't wait for the season to end.

Provisional lineup: Broome, Currie, Brown, Nightingale, Biler, Jaiyesimi, McAteer, Woodyard, Chislett, Davison, Al-Hamadi.

Player to Watch: Ali Al-Hamadi

There aren't many players this season that have excelled for Wimbledon, but one that is above the rest is Ali Al-Hamadi. A 21-year-old Iraqi player leads the team in scoring with ten goals while playing 18 matches.

Starting lineups

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.
