Morton vs Stranraer Prediction, Betting Odds, and Free Tips 18/07/2023

The host team is vying for the lone spot in the next round and needs to make sure to use all points. The away team had no points last season and will be hoping to break that streak this year. To place the best bet, check out our Morton vs Stranraer prediction.

Accurate Predictions and Betting Tips for Morton vs Stranraer

Halftime Morton

The Ton’s dominance has been such that The Ton has led at halftime in six of their last eight head-to-head meetings. Stranraer were 2-0 behind after 45 minutes the day before.

The Blues have now allowed goals in four of their last five outings. My first Morton vs Stranraer prediction is that The Ton will win in the first half.

Over 2.5 Goals

In the home team’s first match, there were a total of 4 goals, while in the away team’s match, there were 6. The last time the two met, there were 3 goals in total.

Taking into account the offensive power of The Ton and the defensive fragility of The Blues, I think there will be at least 3 goals.

Both Teams to Score – No

There have been six different winners in the last six encounters between the two teams. It’s worth noting that the winner of each match preserved a clean sheet.

The away team lacked attacking ability in the last encounter, which is why they scored so few goals. This game appears to end with only one team putting the ball in the net.

The most recent Morton vs Stranraer preview:

Morton

Last season, The Ton came close to moving beyond the group stage, but a shaky start saw them finish second in their group. This year was different, as the Dougie Imrie-led club began the season with a 3-1 victory over Kelty Hearts.

Morton opened the game poorly, failing to score in the first half and conceding a goal right before halftime. The team came out in the second half with a different mindset and turned the score around with three goals scored by Steven Boyd, Robbie Crawford, and Kirk Broadfoot.

Stranraer

Last season, the Blues finished bottom of their group in the Scottish League Cup. Based on the results of the first day, it appears that their fate will be the same this year.

Stranraer was defeated 5-1 by All Country. The saddest aspect of this outcome was that it occurred at home. Craig Ross was unlucky to score an own goal in the 11th minute, giving his opponents the lead. The Blues’ only goal came from Scott Robertson.
