Hartlepool vs Colchester: Top Free Betting Tips
Hartlepool and Colchester do not have anything to fight for so our expectations here are for a lot of goals.
Total Goals – Over 2.5
Neither of these teams is one of those with loads of goals per game on average but since this game has absolutely no meaning, we expect open play and a lot of attacking football. In each case, both sides have been having games with goals on both ends lately. The first match between them this season ended in a 1:2 win for Hartlepool.
Match Result – Colchester
Hartlepool have been way above Colchester throughout most of the season but we think that the visitors have the better form out of these two teams and we think that they might even beat them. Hartlepool are the favorite to win this match but they failed in nine consecutive games while Colchester have been surprisingly good on the road and also did not lose in three games in a row before this one.
Alternative Corners – Over 9
When it comes to corners, Colchester are the team with the lowest averages but at the same time, they take quite a lot on the road. For example, they had 2.80 per game on average in their last five but 4.40 in their last five away games alone. On the other side, Hartlepool take an average of 5.20 corners per game. With the type of game that we expect, we think that there will be a lot of corners to accompany the 90 minutes of attacking football.
Hartlepool vs Colchester: Form, Recent Games, and News
There is a lot of potential in this squad and it is unfortunate to see them fail this much at the end of this season. They had all the necessary abilities to become a promotion contender this season and for some time, they were doing good. Now, in the final 2-3 months, they have been one of the weakest teams in the league and it is a major disappointment for them and for fans overall.
Colchester were fighting for their life throughout most of the season and only managed to save themselves from relegation a few rounds ago. The team actually got 5 wins in its last 10 rounds, which is their best performance in the entire season and put them way above the relegation zone. This is another side that has potential and we have high expectations for the upcoming campaign, as long as they improve that defensive end.
