Morecambe Double Chance
The tension should be palpable on Saturday when Morecambe, who need a result to guarantee their survival, host a Sunderland outfit that need point to land a playoff berth on the campaign’s final day. The Shrimps have lost only once in their last eight matches at the Mazuma Stadium however, and against what will undoubtedly be a nervous Sunderland side prone to dramatic collapses, Morecambe could be worth backing in the double chance market.
Both Teams to Score
Morecambe have become a real favourite with both teams to score bettors in the second half of the League One season. Ten of The Shrimps’ last 11 fixtures at home have produced action at both ends and a similar outcome looks possible in the campaign’s climactic contest there on Saturday. BTTS has landed in four of the Black Cats’ last five tests in the third tier and punters should stick to the same market this weekend.
Cole Stockton to Score Anytime
Cole Stockton is just one goal behind current joint-top scorers Will Keane and Ross Stewart in the race to land League One’s Golden Boot this term and the Morecambe striker will be gunning for glory on Saturday. Stockton has already bagged a hugely impressive 23 goals this season and with a run of four strikes in six appearances behind him, we’re tipping the expert finisher to find the net again.
