Free football corner predictions and betting tips

Forest Green may not corner the market against Harry Kewell's Oldham Athletic

Oldham boss Harry Kewell
1 of 1

Best bet

Oldham +2 Asian handicap corners (3pm v Forest Green)
1pt 1.95 bet365

Forest Green might not win the corners count comprehensively in their League Two game at home to Oldham.

Back Oldham +2 Asian handicap corners at 19-20. If Forest Green win the corners count by three or more the bet will lose, if they win it by two stakes will be returned and if anything else happens the bet will win.

Forest Green have gained an increasing share of the corners in their home games in each season since they won promotion to League Two – 46 per cent three seasons ago, 54 per cent two seasons ago, 57 per cent last season and 64 per cent this season.

They have nearly always had a lot of the ball, but until quite recently that was not reflected in corners gained and lost. During their first two seasons in the EFL they gained a smaller share of the corners in their games than was usual for a team with their share of possession. Corners for and against were also out of sync with goals for and against.

This season, though, Forest Green have gained a higher share of corners in their games than is usual for a team with their share of possession or goals. And they have been doing well with both of those. They are second in the table.

Not surprisingly, the result-related markets regard Forest Green as clear favourites to win. Oldham are 14th out of 24 in the table. Result-related odds imply a 51 per cent chance of a home win, a 25 per cent chance of a draw and a 24 per cent chance of an away win. Those are probably not far wrong, if at all.

In other EFL games with similar result expectations fair decimal odds about the away team +2 Asian handicap corners would typically be around 1.725. Today they would be bigger, but perhaps not as big as 1.95. Corners stats fluctuate over time, as Forest Green’s show. Forest Green will not always perform as well in corners handicaps as they have so far this season, and there is a chance things will start to change.

Thought for the week

One of the things Sam Allardyce prizes most has not happened in any of the three games he has managed for West Bromwich. His team have not scored the first goal. No doubt it is something he and they are working to change.

Albion’s best result was a 1-1 draw at Liverpool, which came after a 3-0 loss at home to Aston Villa and before a 5-0 loss at home to Leeds. In some ways it was a strange game.

Albion set out not to concede a goal. That was understandable. In the first half their formation floated between 4-6-0, 5-5-0 and 6-4-0. But they did concede.

In the second half Albion played more adventurously. That was also understandable. Unless they scored they were certain to lose.

Even when they did not have the ball there was always one and sometimes two players in an attacking line. Allardyce had not asked for this in the first half because he knew it increased the risk of Albion conceding. But in the second half they did not concede. And they did score.

In his autobiography Allardyce said: “There are aspects I’ve always sworn by during my managerial career. Scoring the first goal is a big one. The stats say that if you strike first, then 80 per cent of the time you don’t lose.”

Allardyce has managed seven other teams in the Premier League: Bolton, Newcastle, Blackburn, West Ham, Sunderland, Crystal Palace and Everton. Between them, they scored 50 per cent of the first goals in their games and 44 per cent of all other goals.
