Betting Tip: Over 2.5 Goals @ 5/6 with betvictor

Grimsby and Tranmere were the two pre-season favourites to win the league formerly known as the conference, although both sides sit outside the play-off places coming into this BT Sport-televised clash.

The Mariners had some excellent pre-season performances and results, although seven points from three matches was swiftly followed by a run of four games without a win.

It appears that Paul Hurst’s team have got back into the groove after seven from their last three and Grimsby are full of goals on home soil, having enjoyed no less than three 4-1 victories already.

Omar Bogle has adapted well to this division and could well end up top of the scoring charts, while Padraig Amond is a fine strike partner to have and the pair should make life difficult for a Tranmere side who are still finding their feet.

Rovers also had a bright start to the campaign and a 4-1 win at Gateshead was eye-catching, although the next four away matches haven’t resulted in a victory.

Gary Brabin’s team were quickly 2-0 down at Southport on Tuesday before rallying to land a draw although they will be facing better opposition this evening and a similarly slow start will spell trouble.

The Wirral side do have a decent attacking weaponry however. James Norwood has scored in each of his past two games, with Andy Mangan bringing plenty of quality to this team and Rovers have scored in each of their past five games.

Therefore, it makes sense to go with a goal-filled encounter – at least one in which three goals or more will be scored.

This has happened in four of Grimsby’s home matches and their return of fourteen goals in five matches at Blundell Park suggests they might take some stopping, with Tranmere having failed to impress on the road since that Gateshead win.

Bogle is a 9/2 chance to score first with bet365 and is on penalty duties which makes him a slightly more attractive proposition that Amond.
