If you are unsure how to find the right bet for Grimsby Town vs Northampton Town, take a look at our top betting tips for this duel right here:

Northampton Town to Win

After nearly missing on promotion last season, Northampton Town are hoping to make that push in this one and they started the new season with a win to their credit. Meanwhile, Grimsby Town lost their first game and the will fight to avoid a swift return to the lower league this season.

Simply put, Northampton Town is a much better team on paper and if they want to be among the teams fighting for promotion, they have to win against teams like Grimsby. So, our prediction is for the guests to take all three points in this match.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Two of the previous four h2h meetings between Northampton Town and Grimsby Town have gone under 2.5 total goals and we expect that to be case on Saturday as well.

Furthermore, Northampton Town averaged just 2.13 goals per game in League Two last season, while Grimsby Town averaged 2.59 goals per game in National League last year, which is not an impressive average for that rank.

Both Teams to Score – No

We saw both teams scored in just one of the previous four head-to-head duels between Grimsby Town and Northampton Town, so we don’t see that happening in this game either.

In addition to this, both teams have scored in just 39% of all Northampton Town matches in League Two the previous season, while the same is true for 50% of all Grimsby Town games in the league last season.

Grimsby Town vs Northampton Town preview: An easy job for the guests?

Grimsby Town

Even though they finished the season in seventh place in National League, Grimsby Town managed to win in the grueling promotion playoffs last season and earn their spot in the higher rank, League Two. Meanwhile, the team started the new season with a loss to Leyton Orient and they are one of the main candidates for relegation.

Northampton Town

Last season Northampton Town was fourth in League Two, even though they had the same number of points and goal difference as Bristol Rovers, who were third and earned direct promotion. The reason was behind the better h2h score for the other team. So, Northampto9n will have to try again and they started the new season well, with a win over Colchester United.
