Free Betting Tips for Shrewsbury vs Peterborough

If you can’t seem to decide on a bet for Shrewsbury vs Peterborough, check our top betting predictions for this duel here:

Peterborough to Win

Our first Shrewsbury vs Peterborough prediction backs the visitors to record a win they need much more. Posh sit in the playoffs only on goal difference, while Shrewsbury play only for pride from now on. The Shrews lost 3 of their last 4 games as their motivation visibly dropped. At the same time, Posh had been near-perfect in their last 4 (W3 D1).

Penalty Awarded

Our next free betting tip is for the game to have at least one penalty awarded. There was a penalty in 5 of the last 10 H2Hs and also Shrewsbury were awarded a penalty in their last 2 home matches. In fact, the Shrews often win penalties, hence why their top scorer Leahy has scored 6 of his 8 goals from the penalty spot.

Over 2.5 Goals

Our final Shrewsbury vs Peterborough prediction is for the game to have at least 3 total goals scored. With 4 of Shrewsbury’s last 5 games going over 2.5 goals and 4 of Peterborough’s last 6 we think this is a very likely outcome.

Shrewsbury vs Peterborough Lineups and Team News

Shrewsbury

The Shrews were humiliated last weekend when losing 0-6 on their visit to Charlton. The team’s motivation was very low and they deservedly suffered this painful experience. Ever since losing any playoff hope Shrewsbury have lost desire and this explains the 3 defeats in the last 4 rounds.

Latest news

Coach Cotterill is not one to rotate much and he’s not expected to make too many changes to the lineup. Still, he is forced to replace the suspended Flanagan. Moore should simply drop back into defence in his absence. The only absentees are last year’s regulars Nurse (left-back) and Udoh (striker) + midfielder Bayliss.

Peterborough

Despite being held to a frustrating 0-0 home draw by Oxford last weekend Posh moved into the top 6 with that point on goal difference. With 10 points from their last 4 games, Peterborough are clearly on the rise and they will seek more of the same as they chase promotion.

Latest news

Posh are blessed to have clean bill of health right now so the options for rotation are endless. That said the gaffer is known to stick to his guns and it is very likely that the starting lineup will stay the same as last weekend.
