Morecambe vs Swindon Town - Free Betting Tips

Morecambe
Swindon Town

Morecambe have won a single match this season and are just one point above the relegation zone. There are plenty of matches to be played, but they need to start picking up more points when they play at home — and this fixture will certainly be a target to get the ball rolling for them. Their opponents, Swindon Town, are searching for their first victory on the road this season after splitting points twice and losing the first match of the season. They are clearly on the mend, scoring a high number of goals, so we should expect another offensive display this afternoon.

Morecambe vs Swindon Town Betting Tips: Form Guide

Morecambe Struggling Defensively

Today’s hosts have scored only three goals this season, but the primary reason for their place in the table — 22nd —  is their terrible defence. They have allowed 10 goals on the road and four when playing at home, a looseness that has rendered any offensive effort virtually irrelevant. Morecambe will need to be extra careful against Swindon, as the visitors have greatly increased their goal production recently, making Swindon perfectly placed to take advantage of their Morecambe’s leaking defence. On the bright side, they don’t have any injury concerns and can rely on their best players for this important match.

Morecambe have played their last two matches on the road, both of which have ended in defeat. Opponents were able to score three times against them and most of the goals came in the second half, effectively cancelling the narrow advantage they enjoyed from earlier scoring efforts. Against Swindon, they would be wise to play defensively, but their position in the League Two tables doesn’t allow for too much caution. As a result, our Morecambe vs Swindon betting tips for today predict a bold approach that will eventually backfire and further complicate matters for the hosts.

Swindon Seeking To Turn Plentiful Goals Into Points

Early August was absolutely terrible for Swindon, who lost three consecutive games and conceded four goals in back-to-back matches. However, things took a turn for the better three weeks ago when they scored three unanswered goals against Tranmere to win at home. Interestingly, what made that performance special was the fact that fact that visitors took the lead early in the match and after 13 minutes, they were two goals ahead, leading to an easy stroll to the final whistle. Unfortunately, Swindon have yet to replicate this form; they have been unable to win any game since, though they have scored in each of the next three draws.

Manager Brown is probably disappointed that his players were unable to claim victory in any of these previous matches, but is unlikely to change much in the starting formation. We suspect this to be the case as the strategy itself has largely been correct, and Swindon have dominated all of their recent encounters, even if the result finished as a draw. What is likely to be a concern is the fact the visitors will also have to do without two players who are currently serving a one-game suspension; though with that said, savvy Morecambe vs Swindon match previews suggest that they will be able to keep the scoring streak alive and win their first match on the road.

Morecambe vs Swindon Town Preview: Recent Meetings

Morecambe are far from peak performance at present and the threat of relegation is already looming, just six rounds after the season started. The fans can’t find too many reasons for optimism if they take a glance at the head-to-head record against today’s opponents, especially given the fact that Swindon have been almost completely dominant. There have been a total of five games played between these two teams; Morecambe lost four, while salvaging a point in one game.

Surprisingly enough, the matches played at the Globe Arena didn’t bring the relief the home fans were hoping for. In fact, Swindon have been successful here, winning twice by 1-0 at the end of impressive defensive displays. Morecambe vs Swindon betting tips shouldn’t dwell too much on these matches though, because most of them were played over six years ago; the stats make for grim reading, but are unlikely to predict too much about today’s result.

Morecambe vs Swindon Town Prediction: High Scoring Match

These are two teams that are far better at playing attacking football than preventing opponents from scoring. This afternoon, we expect them to do what they do best and send an avalanche of balls towards the other goal, hoping one or more will strike hope. Keeping a clean sheet is not going to be easy for either team, and punters should consider a bet on more than 3.5 goals to be scored. The visitors are more likely to score most of these goals and our Morecambe vs Swindon prediction is that they will Swindon are likely to take the points at the end of a high-scoring encounter.

As yet, no Morecambe match has resulted in a draw, and it’s unlikely this streak will be broken against Swindow. Instead, we expect they will try to take advantage of the fact that Swindon currently have the worst defence of all the teams in the top 20. Punters have every reason to expect a high-scoring match, but it is more likely for these goals to be scored in the second half. Under these circumstances, the HT/FT X/2 bet with a draw at half-time and a victory for the visitors is definitely worth considering.
