Oldham vs Tranmere Predictions, Game Odds and Free Tips (10/08/2021)

The 17th meeting between Oldham Athletic and Tranmere Rovers promises to be a tense fixture. These teams will lock horns in round one of the EFL Cup. Our match preview has more details.

Note: The odds for Oldham vs Tranmere are subject to change on Betfred. Please confirm with the bookmaker before placing your bet.

Few goals at full-time

Oldham vs Tranmere doesn’t look like one of those high-scoring matches you watch in EFL Cup fixtures. In previous encounters between these teams, there has never been much fanfare. Therefor, we are expecting a less exciting game on 10th August and  so, few goals at full-time is a probable outcome.

Draw at half-time

Previous encounters between Oldham Athletic and Tranmere Rovers have never been high-scoring games. In the last 16 encounters, only three had more than two goals. And given that we are predicting a less entertaining game on matchday, we don’t also expect goals at half-time.

Both teams to score: No

Only four out of 16 meetings between these teams had goals on both sides of the pitch. It has always been a one-sided scoring affair. Interestingly, in the four games that both teams scored, Tranmere was the host. Stats don’t lie and for that, we take the risk of a one-sided scoring game with a good price on Betfred.

Match Preview: Will Oldham Correct their Poor Start in the New Season?

Oldham comes to this fixture wary of a familiar opponent. Most importantly, the hosts look to get their fifth victory over Tranmere in 17 meetings. More in our game preview.

Oldham Athletic

Oldham’s inconsistencies were manifest in their pre-season games. The hosts lost their first match of the season but hope to get a better result against Tranmere on 10th August 2021. Moreover, Oldham failed to register a shot on target in their first game of the season, a failure that head coach, Keith Curle, should address heading into this game. They had six shots off target but couldn’t convert any of their four shots inside the box. Since taking over Oldham Athletic in March this year, Keith Curle has averaged 1.08 points in 13 games of 4W, 2D and 7L.

Tranmere Rovers

A good run of form in pre-season fixtures earned Tranmere a deserved victory in their first game of the season. The visitors are our favourite to win this game, albeit, it will come with a spirited fight. Moreover, Tranmere’s new head coach, Micky Mellon, hopes to get his second victory after winning the first game in charge against Walsall in League Two.
