Our Prediction:

Peterborough will win

Peterborough – Rochdale Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 10:00

Spotland Stadium is the clubs home ground, with the venue holding no more than 10,249 spectators. The Dale wear blue shirts with black stripes and blue shorts when playing at home, whilst gray is the dominant colour of their away kit. Bury and Oldham Athletic are considered the clubs fiercest rivals, but they have built up rivalries with the likes of Halifax Town, Burnley, Stockport County, Wigan Athletic and Accrington Stanley as well.

Darren Fergusons troops have found their best form of late and despite the fact that the visitors recorded back-to-back wins over Carlisle United and Southend United in previous two league fixtures, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. After recording three consecutive wins in the League One, Peterborough United will be aiming to climb to the play-offs berth in the League One standings when they take on Rochdale at their Weston Homes Stadium.

Theres been lots to like about the way in which Peterborough have gone about their business over the last month or so. Prior to picking up their first win of the campaign on match-day four, Posh had struggled to get going slightly, but they now seem to have got the hang of not only preventing their opponents from creating, but of offering a sizeable threat going forward.

Admittedly, in their current form, in front of their own fans, Posh deserve to be favourites, though the early market seems to have overdone it slightly. Based on what weve seen from the pair so far, this is no easy game to call, so its reasonably tough to see why the hosts are so hotly fancied in the betting.

So with home advantage and dominance in recent h2h games, I would recommend betting on Peterborough to win with 2.15 odds. The visitors are on a 3 game losing streak and they dont look like a possible challenge to a team that is way above them in the table. The hosts may be able to pick up a win at home after 4 winless matches.

The Dale have been showing signs of improvement in recent weeks, but you should bear in mind that they suffered a loss in each of their last two encounters against Peterborough United in the League One. When the two teams met at Weston Homes Stadium earlier in 2019 the Chavs recorded a 2-1 win over the Dale and the history is likely to repeat itself.

At the prices, Rochdale +0.75 Asian Handicap stands out as a bet that represents value. Moreover, they also have a reasonably poor expected goal difference of +0.13. In fact, its a good bit less. On their travels, Rochdale currently have an average expected goal difference of +0.29. Simply put, Dale, whove shipped just one goal in their last four league games, look to have a better chance of taking something from the game than the odds suggest and thus backing them to do so is worthwhile. Peterborough have impressed of late, though results have perhaps showed them to be more powerful than they are. After all, the hosts are averaging only 0.86 expected goals for at home, which is no more than the visitors on the road.

The same trend is followed by the hosts in their last 4 home matches as well. There is no doubt that we will see some goals in this game. So a bet can be placed on over 2.5 goals with 1.67 odds. The visiting team has conceded in their last 6 matches on the road. Since 5 of the last 6 away matches of the Dale ended up having more than 2.5 goals, we can expect the same to happen here.

Theyve kept a clean sheet in each of those three. Fergusons men have scored a very pleasing nine goals in their last three. Fergusons men have also done a solid job of outshooting their opponents in recent matches, as theyve registered 41 shots, 16 of which hit the target, in their last three games. Theyve conceded 27 during that time, only one of which troubled keeper Christ Pym. Posh have also bettered their opponents in terms of expected goals in three out three, creating an average of 1.34 and surrendering an average of 0.77.
