Morton vs Edinburgh Predictions by Punditfeed

There has been just one encounter between Morton and Edinburgh and it took place in July 2017. Greenock Morton won the encounter 5-0. Can they make another strong statement in this Cup fixture? Here are our top Morton vs Edinburgh predictions:

Morton to Win First Half

We are backing Morton to lead at the break in this game. They have the better form and with massive home support, this should be an easy game for Morton against a team they previously thrashed 5-0. Greenock Morton currently plays in the Scottish Championship while Edinburgh is in League One. The visitors lost the last three games, conceding at least two goals in each defeat.

Over 2.5 Goals

Another Morton vs Edinburgh prediction is a bet on the total match goals. The visitors have been terrible defensively while Morton have had a higher conversation rate of their shots on target. With a good striking force against Edinburgh which has a shattered defence, we think there will be at least 3 goals in this game. With that, bet on over 2.5 goals when these teams clash on Saturday, 29th July 2023.

Both Teams to Score

The final Morton vs Edinburgh prediction is a tip on the team likely to score in this game. Based on our analysis, we predict that goals will be scored on both ends of the pitch. We are tipping both teams to score. In as much as Morton have the advantage, the visitors scored in each of their last five games, so they are likely to find the back of the net at least once in this game.

Morton vs Edinburgh Match Preview

Championship side, Greenock Morton, are the favourites in this League Cup clash with Edinburgh. The visitors are a League One side but recent results have only gone from bad to worse for them. Notably, Edinburgh lost all their last three games, in three rounds of the League Cup. The fact that they play against a Championship side (Greenock Morton) after such a poor run of form means away victory is the least likely outcome in this game.

Morton have once defeated Edinburg back in 2017, but that was way back, so a lot must have changed on both sides. The hosts have are 2nd overall in Group D of the Scotting League Cup and won two of the last three rounds.
