Newry vs Glenavon Betting Tips - BTTS
Losing 10 of their last 14 league matches, including 4 of the last 5, Newry have endured a difficult campaign with just 18 points collected from 20 games completed.
Third bottom of the Premiership, the hosts will be delighted to return to the Showgrounds having lost 8 of their last 9 away league matches. Newry failed to score in all 8 losses while leaking 22 goals. Yet despite that dire away record, Newry´s home form has been a little better, having won two of their last three on home soil.

Visiting Glenavon come into this fixture in somewhat poor form, with last weekend´s win against Portadown ending a four-match winless stretch which had seen them collect just 1 point. On their travels, Glenavon have also struggled, losing 4 of their last 5 and winning just 1 of 8 away league outings this season. However, goals have been on the agenda, with 7 of their last 8 on the road seeing BTTS. 6 Of those 7 matches also saw over 2.5 goals scored.
With Newry seeing 14 goals scored in their last 3 home matches, we expect another high-scoring affair here, with the host´s home improvements a factor against a side that so often sees both teams scoring in away matches.
As such, we´ll take a chance on the BTTS pick, with each of the last three meetings between these sides also seeing BTTS and over hai.5 goals scored, including Newry´s stunning 5:1 win against Glenavon earlier this season.
