Betting Tip: Crawley v Yeovil

Crawley finally had something to cheer about as they took a shock win out on the road at Swindon last weekend. That was heavily against the odds considering that Swindon were flying at the top of the league. So will they be able to back that up on home soil as they play host to Yeovil? Yeovil will be a little worried as they have suffered back to back defeats out on the road, but they are still a side who have been scoring pretty well. Crawley are 6/5 at bet365 to win this one at the Broadfield Stadium, while the visiting Yeovil are 11/5.

Crawley Form

Crawley lost their first three games of the season managing just the one goal in the process. Surprisingly though they went to league leaders Swindon last weekend and rolled out a 3-0 win. No-one really saw that coming. But can they back it up on home soil where they have lost already against Port Vale and Cambridge? Jimmy Smith was the hero for them last weekend, scoring two of their three goals (which means he has scored half of their four goals this season) and he is a 10/3 option to net again in this one.

Yeovil Form

If you want entertainment this season then just go and watch the Glovers. They have won both of their home games and have lost both of their away games, but all four games involving them this season have averaged six, yes six goals per game. So far on their travels, they have lost 8-2 at Luton and 4-3 at Forest Green. So defensively they have been shocking, but they themselves have scored at least two goals in all of their games so far.

Head to Head News

These two split home wins last season in League Two and Crawley from their four previous league home games against Yeovil, Crawley are W2 L2. The overall head to head is in favour of Yeovil with a W6 L2 record. Both teams have scored in just one of their last four meetings and Yeovil have failed to score in two of their four previous games at Crawley.

Top Betting Tips

The fact that Yeovil have been scoring so well, should mean that even though defensive they are not there, what they have going forward should be enough to take down a limited Crawley side. Crawley had a huge weekend with three points at Swindon last weekend, but Yeovil may bring them back down to earth with a bump.
