Hartlepool vs Leyton Orient: Top Free Betting Tips
Hartlepool had a terrible game over the week for the EFL Trophy and will either be extra motivated or extra tired for this game. Leyton have been improving but their performances remain bad.
Total Goals – Over 2.5
While we definitely do not expect a 0:5 win here, we still think that there will be a lot of goals in this fixture based on the two teams in recent weeks. It is true that Leyton had predominantly games with less than 2.5 goals – actually, eight out of their last ten had less than 3. However, their two most recent matches both ended in 2:2 draws. On the other side, Hartlepool have had more than 2.5 goals in 4/5 recent games as well as both teams scoring in 5/5. They concede a lot of goals and they score a lot of goals, especially at home. They will want to take revenge for that 5:0 defeat as well as for the loss in the EFL Trophy this week.
Draw No Bet – Hartlepool
Hartlepool looked like they were about to win the match against Rotherham for the EFL Trophy but then allowed a complete turn around and lost. They should be extra motivated for a good result here as now they only have League Two left. The team remains one of the strongest hosts in the entire league and given that Leyton Orient have been the worst team in the league for a while now, we expect to see them win. Hartlepool have lost only two games at home this season out of 16, so it is quite safe to bet on them to win or at least get a draw. Leyton Orient won only one of their last 15 fixtures in League Two, so we do not expect something spectacular from them here.
Alternative Corners – Under 10
When it comes to corners, Hartlepool and Leyton Orient never take a lot. Quite literally, these are two of the teams with the lowest corner stats out of the entire league. For example, Hartlepool have taken just 4.41 corners per game this season on average while Leyton Orient – 3.88. Their most recent games have had even fewer corners, so we expect to see a low number in this match too. Most of Hartlepool's games this season have had less than 10/11 corners.
