Colchester vs Hartlepool: Top Free Betting Tips
Colchester seemed like they had improved and they made it out of the relegation zone. However, their bad results have now begun again while Hartlepool have been at their best form since the start of the season.
Total Goals – Under 2.5
Hartlepool have had just a single over 2.5 game in months. Overall, both teams are among the sides with the least goals in the league to date. Both sides have had an average of 2.3 goals in their 31 matches. Colchester had 13/31 with over 2.5 goals while Hartlepool – 12/31. More importantly, both sides have scored very few goals compared to the better teams and we do not expect many here. Especially when it comes to Hartlepool, they have been one of the worst away teams to date and have also scored the least goals on the road – just 9 in 15 fixtures. It has become so that it is surprising to see them score on the road.
Match Result – Draw
Colchester and Hartlepool have not played a game in a long while – since 2017. Back then, Colchester were the better team on all occasions – they did not lose in six consecutive games. This season, however, they have been one of the weakest teams in the league. We expect to see a draw here because Colchester are quite bad while Hartlepool are one of the weakest away teams in the league. They managed to win their first away game in 4 months last week. However, any opponent, even Colchester, are a difficult challenge.
Team Corners – Hartlepool Under 4.5
Neither team has had a lot of corners in their recent games. In Colchester's case, there were less than 11 corners in 7/8 recent games. In Hartlepool's case, there were less than 11 corners in 6/6 recent games. Since Hartlepool are quite bad on the road, we will bet against them here – the team has taken an average of 4.26 corners this season in all games. It is true that they sometimes take a bunch in their away games but we think that this will not happen against this opponent.
