Best Tip: Both teams to score

Both Newport and Grimsby supporters may have some reason for celebration ahead as their sides go head-to-head, with our prediction of both teams to score looking a much better pick than any bet on the outright winner. The two teams have plenty in attack, as is borne out by the statistics and past head-to-head data below. Even the bookies odds are not finding anything to pick between the sides, with equal threat among their respective squads. Both teams to score is our top tip.
