Coventry vs Notts County predictions and betting tips for the League Two play-off match on Saturday evening with a goals tip and match prediction included.
The second of the League Two play-offs takes place at the Ricoh with Coventry hosting Notts County. The Sky Blues only needed a point on the final day of the season and they collected it courtesy of a bore-draw with Morecambe. Mark Robin’s side have been a strange side who have the penchant to throw in the occasional stinker (see the 6-2 home defeat to Yeovil). They do have some good young players and one of League Two’s in-form strikers with Marc McNulty finding the net on a regular basis. Notts County have their eyes on a return to League One and they looked like automatic promotion candidates during the first half of the season. Ryan Yates’ departure affected them and even the majestic form of Jorge Grant has begun to dwindle. They have plenty of experience in the squad with former Premier League players Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi in the squad.

Coventry should win this game but I find them hard to trust. Notts County have the ability to keep things tight and they could come away with at least a point here. The first of our Coventry vs Notts County betting tips is Draw which is priced at 40/17 with 888Sport.
Under 2.5 Goals was always going to be a short—price here and both teams have a similar-ish style of play. Notts County will be keen to head back to Meadow Lane with a point whilst Coventry are unpredictable. Both meetings this season have ended with exactly three goals and a similar outcome is expected here. 2-3 Match Goals is priced at 10/11 with Paddy Power and is the second of our Coventry vs Notts County predictions.
It’s hard to look beyond the aforementioned Marc McNulty who has been in cracking form during the second half of the season. He has netted 26 times across all competitions this season. Marc McNulty in the anytime goalscorer market is priced at 11/10 with Betfair and is the last of our Coventry vs Notts County betting tips.
Unsurprisingly, Coventry start as favourites and can be backed at Evens for this contest. It is 40/17 to end all square and that is our preferred outright selection. It’s 11/4 for a Notts County win here.
The bookies are expecting a tight game and it is 13/19 for Under 2.5 Goals to land here. Those who fancy a high-scoring affair can get a generous looking 11/10 on Over 2.5 Goals.
Marc McNulty is the 3/1 favourite in the first goalscorer market and is followed by team-mate Jordan Ponticelli who is available at 11/2.

Jodi Jones remains on the sidelines as the talented youngster continues his recovery. Jonson Clarke-Harris is likely to settle for a place on the bench.
Notts County have no new injury concerns. Jonathon Forte will be hoping to be given the nod ahead of Shola Ameobi.
