Tip Reasoning

  • Each of Swindon’s last eight league games produced over 2.5 goals.
  • A league-high 22 of Swindon’s games this season saw at least three goals (63%).
  • Oldham’s league matches this season have averaged a sizeable 2.6 total goals per-game.

A goal-fuelled affair between two desperate sides

Swindon’s push for the play-off positions has faltered across the last few rounds (W1, L2), but that has been no problem for the neutral viewer as all three of those games saw goals at both ends and at least three in total.

While they remain high in the table, Swindon’s home form leaves much to be desired. A mere 29% win-rate in home league games this season has perhaps damaged their chances of promotion, and that is one of the key reasons that the win market could be avoided at an odds-on price.

Although Oldham find themselves in the relegation places, they have played out of their skin of late with their latest defeat being the only one across the last eight rounds (W3, D4, L1). This period of games was not without it’s twists and turns though, as four of the last six saw three goals and goals at both ends.

The value could lie in the totals

Considering both the recent form of these sides and the fact that they make up two of the top-four sides for total league games with over 2.5 total goals, I feel this prediction holds more value than simply backing a home win.

As for the correct score, I am going for an entertaining 3-1 home win as Swindon seek to get back on the promotion trail.
