Hartlepool vs Stevenage – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Stevenage have won just once on the road all season as they prepare to take on Hartlepool in League Two. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.
Hartlepool to Win
Despite their lowly 17th position in League Two, Hartlepool actually hold League Two’s fifth-best home record this season with seven victories from 12 matches at The Suit Direct Stadium. In contrast, Stevenage have endured a miserable time on the road this term, losing eight and winning only one of their 12 away assignments so far. With Pool so formidable in Durham, we recommend siding with the hosts against their travel-sick visitors.
Under 2.5 Goals
While we expect Hartlepool to eventually pocket maximum points this weekend, we anticipate very little in terms of goalmouth action in Durham. Each of Hartlepool’s last two home fixtures finished 0-0 while Stevenage have failed to register completely in seven of their last eight away contests in League Two. With attacking quality in short supply in both camps, back under 2.5 goals to hit the net on Saturday.
Highest Scoring Half: Second
Remarkably, 15 of the last 16 goals scored by Hartlepool were notched in the second half of the club’s games and we think Pools’ habit of springing to life after the interval will be evident again this weekend. Graeme Lee’s troops have scored just three times at home in the first period overall this term, netting a further 13 times after the break and with that record making for compelling reading, bettors should consider backing the second half to see more action than the first on Saturday.
Hartlepool vs Stevenage Match Preview: Home advantage key in Durham
Hartlepool have been the very definition of home birds this season and while Pools hold League Two’s worst away record this term, Graeme Lee’s side have enjoyed plenty of success in Durham. Bradford (1) are the only club to have lost fewer games on their own patch than Hartlepool (2) since August and The Suit Direct Stadium faithful will expect their turn to turn on the style again on Saturday.
Stevenage have boosted their survival hopes considerably thanks to a run of two wins and a draw in their last three runouts in League Two, though it’s worth noting all three fixtures were played in Hertfordshire. Away from home, the picture is much bleaker for Borough and manager Paul Tisdale and only Saturday’s host’s Hartlepool have collected fewer points on their travels in 2021/22.
