Rochdale vs Bradford – Free Betting Tips, Odds & Predictions

These are our Rochdale vs Bradford predictions and tips:

Bradford to Open the Scoring

We would like to point out that Rochdale are currently last on the League Two table; although they’re just starting to find the stride, Jimmy McNulty’s men have won just eight of 41 league matches this season. Interestingly, Rochdale tend to concede first when they play; as they allowed the first goal in five of their last six matches.

On the other hand, Bradford City kept six clean sheets in their last 10 matches; they drew first blood in six of those games. Considering Bradford registered the first goal in four of the last five clashes between these sides, we are fairly confident that they’ll open the scoring today.

Both Teams to Score

Our next Rochdale vs Bradford prediction is on the BTTS market. Despite being one of the lowest-scoring sides in League Two this season, Rochdale have scored many goals in recent weeks. Jimmy McNulty’s men found the back of the net in four of their last five matches, registering 10 goals in the process. In like manner, Bradford City have scored and conceded their fair share of goals recently; with both teams getting on the scoresheet in four of their last six games. On that note, we should expect goals at both ends.

At Least 3 Goals Scored

We’ve already established that Rochdale have averaged two goals per game in their last five matches. It’s also important to note that three of those matches featured at least four goals. In like manner, Bradford registered eight goals in their last five games, and three of those went over 3.5. Taking everything into consideration, we should expect the goals to flow in this match.
