Morecambe vs Burton – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Morecambe could move out of the relegation zone with a victory over Burton on Saturday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Morecambe Draw no Bet

Both Morecambe and Burton were in poor overall form before the international break, though The Shrimps had at least shown some signs of life at home where the relegation candidates were beaten just twice in seven assignments. Burton meanwhile, have lost five of their last six tussles on the road and that dismal record could open the door for bettors to back Morecambe in the draw no bet market, which offers a smidgin of insurance.

Both Teams to Score

With zero shut outs secured in their last 14 League One fixtures respectively; Morecambe and Burton’s defensive records make for grim reading and neither defence should ever be expected to keep a clean sheet. With issues at the back prevalent in both camps, we recommend backing both teams to concede at the Mazuma Stadium on Saturday.

Over 2.5 Goals

Both Morecambe and Burton are more ramshackle than rock-solid in their own third and as a consequence, many of their fixtures are high-scoring affairs. That was certainly the case back in October when the teams last locked horns in a five-goal thriller that finished 3-2 in Burton’s favour. Similar levels of excitement are on the cards in Saturday’s rematch so back over 2.5 goals to hit the net again.

Morecambe vs Burton Match Preview and Team News

Morecambe

Midfielder Freddie Price could miss out again for Morecambe as he struggles to overcome his fitness issues. The Shrimps will kick off Saturday’s game third from bottom in League One, though a victory could catapult them out of the drop zone. Three of Morecambe’s last four wins in the third tier were secured on home soil.

Burton

Back-up attacker Tom Hewlett is the only confirmed absentee for Burton ahead of the weekend. A run of five defeats in seven games has pushed Albion south in the League One table, though they still have enough points in the bank to avoid being sucked into a late relegation battle.
