Tranmere vs Grimsby Best Predictions with Top Odds

Two teams that have their season already decided when it comes to the ambitions they had before the football year started, are meeting to get some more perspective for the upcoming off-season period.

Draw

These are two evenly-matched teams that are divided by only a single point in League Two standings. So, for this purpose, the Tranmere vs Grimsby prediction is about the equality of points earned. Tranmere had 12 draw matches this season, one fewer than Grimsby, and they are almost even with the goal difference as well. Their h2h matchup, however, speaks a different story when it comes to drawing games, they only had one in their last ten encounters. That fact could prove decisive, but in regards to the fact that there isn't a significant result they can achieve this time around, splitting the spoils might be the most logical of solutions.

Both Teams to Score

With a similar sentiment for the second prediction in this Tranmere vs Grimsby matchup, when teams are meeting that doesn't have anything meaningful to play for, goals are usually scored on a high level. There is no pressure for these teams to get the win even though they wouldn't mind getting one. However, scoring goals is something they will be looking forward to achieving. In their last five outings when they were facing each other, three games ended with both teams getting on the scoresheet at least once. Regarding their current form, Tranmere has three out of the last five games with BTTS covered while Grimsby is even better with four of those matches from the same number of contests.

Tranmere vs Grimsby Lineups, Preview, and Team Information

Tranmere

The season for Tranmere is done when we talk about the outcome. They won't be promoted or relegated, and the whole season can be considered below average at best depending on who you ask at the club about the ambitions they had before the start of the season. Tranmere lost 17 times which is three more games than they won, so at least in that aspect, they have been disappointing.

Provisional lineup: Hewelt, Cogley, Davies, Turnbull, Bristow, Hendry, Hawkes, Turner-Cooke, Hughes, Saunders, Hemmings.

Grimsby

Similarly to their opponent this weekend, Grimsby doesn't have anything to play for before the season shuts down in a few weeks. They are just above Tranmere in the standings with only a point the difference between the two clubs whose football year is going to be over soon which means a much-needed vacation time for the players. Grimsby has won two games from their last three matches which is more than what Tranmere has done, so at least there is some sort of interesting facts about this upcoming match.

Provisional lineup: Crocombe, Driscoll-Glennon, Maher, Smith, Emmanuel, Khouri, Green, Khan, McAtee, Clifton, Lloyd.

Starting Lineups

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

Player to Watch: Josh Hawkes
