Interesting Lincoln City vs Shrewsbury Betting Tips & Odds

With two back-to-back losses, the Imps will try to get back on the horse with a much-needed win over winless Salop. The game at Sincil Bank will be action-packed so we highly advise you to get the full scoop on our Lincoln City vs Shrewsbury predictions for Sunday’s brawl. For more of our best football tips for today, you should check our designated page.

BTTS

The Lewis Montsma-shaped hole in the Imps’ backline will surely be of great help to our primary Lincoln City vs Shrewsbury prediction. We expect to see both goalkeepers fail to keep a clean sheet as this is the final match of the season for both teams. The 22 on the pitch will enjoy pressure-free 90 minutes and the two clubs will most likely want to put on a show for the fans at Sincil Bank.

Our tip isn’t backed up by the head-to-head record as only 40% of the last 10 matches between the two sides actually ended with both teams scoring but as we said, it’s the end of the season, it’s time for the clubs to take a breather.

Lincoln City to Win

First of all, our Lincoln City vs Shrewsbury prediction is based on the fact that the Imps will most likely enjoy a packed crowd at Sincil Bank. And we all know how important it is for football teams to have the support of their fans.

We surely don’t expect a glamorous Lincoln City victory as the two teams are neck and neck in League One’s ranking. There’s not much that separates these two but we’d still give the edge to coach Mark Kennedy’s side.

Lincoln City vs Shrewsbury Lineups & Team News

Lincoln City

Coach Mark Kennedy was furious last week after his boys gave Morecambe a come-from-behind 3-2 win at Globe Arena. Everything was going according to plan until the 48th minute. Lincoln City were leading 0-2, they had more possession, more shots, and better pass accuracy. However, everything went south after Cole Stockton bagged his sixth goal of the season for Morecambe in the 50th minute of the game. All the Shrimps needed was a little spark as they bagged two more for the final 3-2 score.

Predicted lineup – Rushworth (GK), Roughan, O’Connor, Poole, Erhahon, Virtue, Sorensen, Boyes, Mandroiu, Shodipo & House

Shrewsbury

Salop had a terrific start to the season. At one point, their backline was sturdier than most League One teams. However, ever since January, coach Steve Cotterill’s boys just haven’t been the same as they are dropping points left and right. We acknowledged their horrible momentum and provided you with the Lincoln City vs Shrewsbury predictions with the highest chance of success.

Predicted lineup – Marosi (GK), Flanagan, Dunkley, Moore, Bennett, Winchester, Leahy, Shipley, Phillips, Street & Saydee

Starting Lineups

Player to Watch: Ben House

Ben House has been rather quiet with his performances in the last couple of months. He had an outstanding first half of the season and that’s the thing keeping him among the starters.

With 12 goals to his name, he’s the Imps’ leading goalscorer in the English League One 2022/23 race. As such, he deserves to lead Lincoln City’s attack versus Shrewsbury as this is the last game of the season. We believe the spotlight will be all his for the taking as his lackluster performance recently isn’t suited for a player of his caliber.
