Cheltenham Town vs Walsall: Top Free Betting Tips

In this EFL Trophy group stage Round 2 fixture, Cheltenham Town takes on the challenge of Walsall. The bookmakers are favouring the hosts but the Saddlers have the capacity to surprise the assembled crowd at Whaddon Road.

Cheltenham Town to Win

It is difficult to see Walsall getting anything out of this fixture. Not only are they on the road, but they are also playing a side one division their senior. Moreover, they are winless in their last nine competitive outings and have not won against Cheltenham Town in their last five attempts.

Over 2.5 Goals

Defensive frailties have caused Walsall's slump but Cheltenham will not take it for granted. The Robins are scoring goals for fun and have been involved in a number of high-scoring affairs. Four of their last five outings have concluded with Over 2.5 Goals and this meeting at Whaddon Road is likely to have a similar ending to it.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Wade Elliott will not be concerned by Cheltenham's attacking output. However, he will be concerned with the Robins' defensive misgivings. The hosts have conceded in each of their last five outings and will give the Saddlers an opportunity to get on the scoreboard. Six of their last eight duels have seen BTTS being realized and it will be the case again in this midweek cup fixture.

Cheltenham Town vs Walsall: Team News and Match Preview

Cheltenham Town

In League One, Cheltenham Town are rarely favourites given their low half of the points table ranking. However, they will take on the role of favourites as they take on Walsall in the EFL Trophy. Not only are they a league higher than their rivals but also have won their last five engagements against them.


Like Cheltenham, Walsall are a midtable outfit but will be concerned about their chances given the disparity of a division. They have a losing record going into this match, which makes it worse for them to get in the right mindset. Michael Flynn will want his charges to give a decent account of their abilities but has a tough task to realize given their recent misgivings.
