Chester and Wrexham shared the spoils in both National League meetings last term and we reckon another draw is on the cards at Deva Stadium on Wednesday night.

The visitors are much better placed in the table this term, lying in third place, 19 spots and 14 points above their hosts.

However, the two teams are more evenly matched on form shown over the past few weeks and 2/1 for a stalemate is the first of our Chester vs Wrexham betting predictions.

A Look At Chester’s Betting Odds

Chester slipped down the table during a poor run of results which yielded six defeats and only one win from 10 fixtures.

However, the sole victory during those testing times came immediately after the arrival of former Grimsby boss Marcus Bignot as City’s new manager and the signs are that he has continued to have a positive impact.

The honeymoon period was brief, with just one point secured from the next three games, but Lucas Dawson then fired in a stunning 94th-minute winner as Chester beat Barrow 3-2.

Only a 95th-minute goal saw the Blues then go down 1-0 at fifth-placed Maidstone, before more late drama went Chester’s way as they fought back from 2-0 behind to snatch a deserved draw at Eastleigh.

With the hosts now showing far greater spirit, we like 21/4 for a 1-1 stalemate from the Chester vs Wrexham odds.

A Look At Wrexham’s Betting Odds

After starting the campaign with three defeats and a couple of wins, Wrexham put together an 11-match unbeaten run in this division, picking up maximum points from six of those fixtures.

However, a recent 2-0 defeat at Fylde left Dean Keates seething, with the manager stating: “It was by far the worst performance of the season and I can only apologise to the fans.”

The Dragons then twice surrendered the lead when drawing 2-2 at home to Leyton Orient and now go into this BT Sport-televised clash with a bit to prove.

Wrexham also travel to Chester having scored just twice in their last six league and cup fixtures on the road.

That stat makes 31/20 for 0-0 at half-time worth adding to our Chester vs Wrexham betting tips, with that being the score at the break in both meetings last season.
