Betting Tip: Stevenage v Lincoln

It has been a fantastic season from Stevenage who were tipped before the start of the season to be one of the main challengers for promotion. They have lived up to expectation with an unbeaten W3 D2 record on the board and they go into this one on a three match winning streak. Lincoln’s season, in contrast, has been pretty mediocre with just the one win, but they have only been beaten once as well. The Imps will get a tough afternoon on the road though, but they are matching up well in the outright market trading at 8/5 with Stevenage at 13/8.

Stevenage Form

Stevenage have been upping their form with a three match winning streak and their last two victories, both out on the road, and came with a clean sheet as well. So far at home, they have taken a draw with Newport and have beaten Grimsby. They have scored exactly three goals in both of their home fixtures so far this season. So they have been pretty solid all around and will be defending their unbeaten start.

Lincoln Form

The Imps have only gone W1 D3 L1 this season, their only defeat came out on the road at Exeter. So that could be telling as Exeter are the only side above Stevenage in the league standings so far. Lincoln have failed to score in two of their last three league games and therefore they may struggle against a well organised Stevenage back line. That having been said, the Imps have conceded only five goals this season, the same amount as Boro have.

Head to Head News

The two League Two games between these sides last season were the first league duels between them and Stevenage won both of those, both victories coming by a one goal margin. Their only other meeting was an FA Cup tie back in 1998 which Lincoln won on home soil. So there’s really not too much happening in the head to head.

Top Betting Tips

Stevenage to win by a one goal margin for 10/3 at bet365 looks great value. That follows the trend between these two from last season and Lincoln aren’t all that bad defensively and only narrowly lost at Exeter. It may be a test of patience for Stevenage, but they can edge it.
