Derby vs Cheltenham Free Betting Tips and Predictions

The postponed League One match Derby – Cheltenham sees two teams with very different ambitions facing each other. Below we have tried to give you our best free betting tips.

Derby Win & Under 4.5 Goals

Derby had been rock-solid at home for months. They are undefeated in their last 10 home league games (W7 D3). They don’t score too many goals though and 7 of their last 8 home games have gone under 4.5 total goals. Also, Cheltenham in awful away form lately – lost 5 of the last 6 away league games. Rarely get embarrassed though, only once all season Cheltenham’s away match had gone over 4.5 goals.

Taking all that into consideration our first Derby vs Cheltenham prediction is for Derby to win and the game to have less than 5 total goals.

Derby Clean Sheet

Our second Derby vs Cheltenham prediction is to see Derby record yet another home clean sheet. The Rams kept clean sheets in 6 of their last 8 home league games. They conceded just 2 goals in those 8 matches. At the same time, Cheltenham’s timid form saw them fail to score in 5 of the last 6 rounds.

Collins to Score Anytime

Our final Derby vs Cheltenham prediction is that Derby’s second-best scorer Collins will get on the scoresheet. Collins was benched in the last 2 rounds, but now the expectations are that he will start. He has scored in 2 of his last 3 starts, so his productivity when selected from the off, is pretty good.

Collins will now face a defence that conceded 4 goals in back-to-back rounds, the Robins lost their last 2 games with identical 0-4 scorelines. Also, Cheltenham haven’t been able to keep a clean sheet in any of their last 7 away games.

Derby vs Cheltenham Lineups and Other News

Derby

Derby suffered a painful away defeat against their direct rivals for promotion Barnsley on Saturday. The Rams remain in a play-off position though and at home, they had been very good for some time now.

Bird remains the only serious injury issue. Derby have good depth in midfield though and there are 3 players competing to provide cover for him. Changes to the starting 11 can be expected and the likes of Dobbins and Collins are pushing for recalls.

Cheltenham

Cheltenham were able to win just once in the last 10 rounds and they are in deep trouble as a result. The form on the road had been particularly poor as of late.

The manager is expected to make changes, especially in midfield where Cheltenham had been overrun in consecutive rounds now. He can’t do much to improve the defensive stability though with the back 4 crippled right now. Still missing 2 key defenders due to injuries – the main left-back Williams and starting centre-back Freestone.
