Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in 74% of Crawley’s home league contests this season.
  • Both teams have scored in 63% of Rochdale’s away league matches in 2021-22.
  • Both teams have scored in five of the six Crawley home games that have been played against the current bottom nine clubs.
  • Both teams have scored in five of the seven Rochdale away games that have been played against the current bottom nine clubs.

Crawley and Rochdale becoming strangers to clean sheets

Crawley will be looking to put together back-to-back wins for the first time since October when they entertain struggling Rochdale on Saturday. The hosts, in 13th place, brought a five game winless run to a halt with a 3-1 victory over Swindon last weekend, and will be bullish about their chances against the 19th-placed visitors.

Eight points separate Saturday’s opponents in the lower reaches of the League Two table and neither really have too much to play for. Crawley are 13 points off the playoff places and even further clear of the relegation zone while Rochdale’s only worry is that one of the bottom two can reduce the current nine-point gap they enjoy.

In that spirit, we would anticipate quite an open game with two teams going for the win from the first whistle. Crawley have the joint-most BTTS games in the division over the last six weeks and the joint-third most average goals per game. Rochdale are among League Two’s leaders with an average of 2.79 goals per away game across the season, so an overs play could work here too.

Hosts can edge a 2-1 win 

But while 58% of Dale’s away games have featured three goals or more, some 63% have seen both teams score – so that’s the betting preference for us here. BTTS has landed in 74% of Crawley’s home games, including in five of their six games against the current bottom nine at The People’s Pension Stadium.

The correct score play that suits this game best would appear to be a 2-1 Crawley win because Rochdale have only hit multiple goals in two of their last 11 aways, during which time they have shipped 20 goals at just under two per game.
