Carlisle vs Hartlepool: Top Free Betting Tips
Earlier this season, Hartlepool managed to win against Carlisle for the first time since 2012. Later on, Carlisle got revenge in the EFL Trophy. Which side will prevail in the third and final fixture of this season?
Both Teams To Score – Yes
In most cases, we wouldn't bet on Hartlepool to score in an away game but this is a really old derby that always provides. These teams give their best when they face each other and we expect to see a lot of goals like in the previous two fixtures that occured earlier this season – 2:1 and 3:3. Carlisle are one of the teams that has had the fewest goals overall in games this season but this should change for this particular fixture. We expect this to be one of the most thrilling games of the entire round in the National League.
Draw No Bet – Carlisle
As mentioned above, Carlisle have always been the more dominant team in head-to-head games. Carlisle and Hartlepool have played 10 games since 2012 and Hartlepool managed to win for the first time in August last year. At the same time, the visitors are the absolute worst away team in the league. Take a note, they have won just 4 points after 12 outings – that is 1 win and 1 draw next to 10 losses. It would be an absolute surprise to see them win even a single point in this fixture and yet, we prefer to go for the safer Draw No Bet option.
Away Team Exact Goals – Hartlepool 1 Goal
We explained why we expect Hartlepool to score but now we have another alternative option at higher odds – exactly 1 goal for the visitors. As mentioned above, Carlisle are one of the best teams for ‘under' bets because they rarely have a lot of goals in their games. For instance, there have been 18 goals in 12 home games this season. We do not expect them to concede more than once – they allowed more than 1 goal in just 3 out of 12 games.
