DNB – Morecambe

Historically, Morecambe has won over Tranmere only once in their 6 previous meetings, which happened earlier in the season. However, there are plenty of things that make us consider Morecambe the more favorable to win side. Their recent form is much better than their opponents', with 6 victories in their last 10, compared to only the 2 of Tranmere. Furthermore, the guests have been scoring much more goals, failing to find the net in only 2 of their recent 10 matches. To put it into perspective, the Rovers have 5 goals in their last 10, while the Shrimps have 18.


In this bet, we are backing the possibility that Tranmere won't be able to score. They've been unable to do so in 50% of their last 10 games, while Morecambe has kept a clean sheet in 4 of its last 10. Head-to-head 3 out of the 6 matches have had only one of the sides getting on the scoreboard.

Under 2.5 Goals

Both squads' games do not produce a lot of goals on the regular, with the slight exception when Morecambe gets to scoring. On certain occasions, just this club's goals can win Over 2.5 goals bet. However, this happens in league games vs weaker opponents. Statistically, 6 of Morecambe's last 10 have had under 2.5 goals, and 8 of Tranmere's last 10 have also had under 2.5 goals.

The League Two play-offs have just begun

Tranmere Rovers is no stranger to winning the League Two play-offs. The club did it in 2019 but was immediately relegated to League Two the following campaign, only to have a chance at promotion once again. The home team has spent the majority of its' recent history in League One, so returning to consistency in the third tier is the aim for the club.

Morecambe on the other hand has had a spectacular comeback. After being on the edge of relegation in 2018 and 2020, the club bounced back to fall just a single point away from instant promotion. Finishing the campaign at the 4th spot The Shrimps are looking for a historic League One promotion. The stakes are set quite high, so we can expect quite the clash.
