Grimsby vs Walsall: Top Free Betting Tips
Grimsby will face Walsall in a massive fixture to kick off their 2024 campaign. Both sides are in good shape and our expectations are high. Here are our predictions.
Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes
We have two teams with nearly identical stats and the commonality between them is that they both have a lot of BTTS games. The more important factor are the away games of Walsall. Few teams have had more goal-packed fixtures than them on the road and their defense is one of the weakest away from home. There is no way that Grimsby will not score in this match, despite being the weaker team on paper. Walsall, in turn, have won four of their last five fixtures in the league and we expect them to come out extremely motivated.
Match Result Prediction: Draw
The fact remains that Walsall are extremely good at home but quite inconsistent on the road. They won four games in the last five rounds but all four were at home. On the road, the team struggles against literally every team and winning has been a huge challenge. Grimsby are one of the weakest teams on paper but have lost only one of their last five home matches in all competitions. Betting on a draw is a huge gamble but we do not see any other outcome for this fixture. The safest thing you can do is bet on the BTTS as nine of the last 10 home games of Grimsby had this outcome.
Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
There is a chance that this game will have far more than two goals but we also have to take note from the previous games between the two teams. Every single match between them in recent years has been extremely competitive, no matter the form of the two teams. We see BTTS in almost every fixture and the 1-1 draw has been the most common result. When we compare the Grimsby vs Walsall line ups, we think that the visitors have a minimal advantage on paper but definitely not when they are on the road.

The distance between the two cities is relatively large and away fans will have to spend a whole day traveling. The distance between the two cities is about 130 miles each way.
