Newport to be Promoted

Morecambe missed on direct promotion by a single point and is now up against a club that is always uncomfortable to play against. In their last 10 meetings, the visitors have won 4 games, compared to just 2 triumphs for the hosts. However, Newport has won their last 3 head-to-head ties. Furthermore, the Welsh side has a better goal record in the league despite finishing with below Morecambe. A finals game can be very unpredictable, that's why we are skipping on betting on the match result, and instead prefer to pick the binary To be Promoted market.

BTTS – Yes

Both of these League Two sides get to scoring quite frequently. Morecambe has failed to score in only 2 of its last 10 matches, and Newport has failed to score in only 3 games. It gets even better when we dabble into the head-to-head statistics. Over the last 4 years, the clubs have met 10 times, and in 8 of those matches, both teams scored. Having in mind how much is at stake here; we believe that both competitors won't bend and will do what they are paid for – score goals.

Over 1.5 Goals

Not only do these teams score often, but they also score a lot of goals. The Over 1.5 Goals bet would've been successful in 80% of their last 10 head-to-head games. Going over to their individual last 10 – Morecambe has had over 1.5 goals again in 80% of their matches, and the percentage sits at 60% for Newport.

A fierce battle for promotion

Two sides which we are used to seeing get stuck at the bottom of the League Two table will be deciding which will be the third team to get promoted to League One. The match-up is as even as it can get which only adds up to the magic of English football. It's been a great journey for Newport and Michael Flynn, who nearly avoided relegation in their first season together in 2016.

The same can be said for Derek Adams. The Scottish manager took over Morecambe in 2019, and finished the campaign on the 22nd spot, narrowly keeping the club’s sport in league Two. Identically to Flynn, but only faster, Adams managed to guide his side back to the top in the following season, finishing 4th just a single point short from the top-3.
