Walsall vs Exeter City – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Exeter City can climb back into League Two’s playoff positions with the right result at Walsall on Saturday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.
Exeter or Draw
Exeter’s form has been patchy of late, though the Grecians remain a tough nut to crack on the road. City have tasted defeat just three times in 12 away assignments in League Two this term and they have the tools to make life tough for their latest hosts on Saturday. Walsall have won just 33% of their home fixtures since August and that poor record means they are worth opposing in the double chance market.
Both Teams to Score
Exeter can generally be relied upon to avoid defeat on their travels, though the Grecians are also prominent performers in another market. Both teams have notched in a huge 80% of their last ten League Two away tests and action at either end is anticipated again when City take on a Walsall side that has seen goals at both ends in seven of their last nine home games.
Over 1.5 Exeter City Teams Goals
Walsall’s defending has been well below standard in recent weeks and on Saturday, Exeter could capitalise on their host’s lack performances at the back. The Saddlers have shipped at least two goals in each of their last three League Two matches, conceding eight times in total across the same trio of fixtures and Exeter can be backed with confidence in the over 1.5 team goals market when they line up against Walsall’s porous rearguard.
Walsall vs Exeter City Match Preview: Exeter aiming for the playoffs
Walsall have recorded just two wins in nine League Two fixtures since October and they are currently closer to the relegation zone to the playoff positions. Back-to-back defeats in their last two fixtures at Stevenage and Mansfield respectively triggered a drop to 15th in the table for Matthew Taylor’s side and the Saddlers have won only once in their last six attempts on home soil.
Exeter snapped a six-game winless run with a timely 2-0 triumph over Scunthorpe last time out, though star striker Matt Jay failed to get on the scoresheet again. Jay is the Grecians’ leading marksman this season with ten goals, however, he has notched just once in his last 11 appearances and coach Matt Taylor will need to get him firing again to reignite the club’s playoff hopes.
