Oldham vs Tranmere predictions and betting tips for the League Two fixture on Tuesday 2nd April. High flying Tranmere are in magnificent form and will be looking to carry that on when they make the short trip to Oldham this week.
Rovers are heading towards the play-offs and the chance of another trip to Wembley at the end of the season.
Oldham are too far adrift to get in the play-offs, but won’t be sucked into the relegation battle either.
This one could be another win for the Merseyside club.
This Tranmere winning streak won’t go on forever, but while they are playing as well as they are, it is hard to see who will beat them. This week they play Oldham Athletic, who sit down in 15th place in the League Two table, with very little left to play for.
Oldham are currently 10 points off the play-off places and they’re unlikely to make up that deficit with matches running out.
The Latics got back to winning ways at the weekend with a 2-0 win over Grimsby Town, that was their first victory in seven matches. It was also the first time in those seven games that they had scored more than one goal in a match.
Micky Melon’s Tranmere Rovers side are absolutely flying at the moment and their win against Carlisle United on Saturday took their winning streak to seven matches. They have won their last three on the road and kept clean sheets in two of those.
With James Norwood continuing to score goals, Tranmere look set for a place in the play-offs and the chance of back to back promotions after winning the National League play-off final last season. We can’t not back Tranmere given the odds of 2/1.
Oldham to win – 31/20
Draw – 13/5
Tranmere to win – 2/1
James Norwood has scored a remarkable 27 goals already this season for Tranmere Rovers. The 28 year old will be attracting clubs in League One or even the Championship and Tranmere will know they probably need to get promotion to keep hold of their star striker.
He has scored in Tranmere’s last five matches and has got nine goals in his last 10 appearances. It is really surprising to see the odds for Norwood to score anytime as big as 13/8 (bet365) in this game. Oldham’s clean sheet in their last match against Grimsby was their first in eight games and they’ll do well to stop the striker who is playing right at the top of his game at the moment.
James Norwood to score anytime is our Oldham vs Tranmere prediction this week.
The last of our midweek betting tips is going to be a correct score and we’re backing up the match result prediction by betting on Tranmere to win 2-1 in Greater Manchester.
Oldham have only won two of their last six at home and although they have lost just once, the three draws all came against teams below Tranmere in the League Two table. They also lost 2-1 to Morecambe in that run.
It is almost impossible to bet against Tranmere at the moment with the form they are in and away from home they have also been rock solid in recent weeks, conceding just once in their last four. Even though we are going for 2-1, it might be worth having a small saver on a 2-0 Tranmere victory as well. Because the odds are big, this would still ensure a nice profit.
