Walsall vs Forest Green: top free betting tips

Walsall and Forest Green meet each other in their second group-stage game of the EFL Trophy at Bescot Stadium on Tuesday, 10 October. Forest entered this game after a long losing streak in League Two while the Saddlers also returned to their losing form against Sutton in the same competition.

Match result prediction: Draw

Forest Green has been quite favourable against Walsall by winning two of their last three meetings. However, they have been terrible recently with six consecutive defeats before this game. On the other hand, Forest has found only one victory in their last five fixtures while losing three of them. The Saddlers have also ended two of their previous four matches at Bescot Stadium in draws and won one of them. Therefore, we predict these teams to share the points in this game.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals

Three of the previous five H2H meetings of these teams have concluded with Under 2.5 Goals. Walsall have managed an average of scoring one goal per game in their last five games at Bescot Stadium. On the other hand, Forest Green have also just six goals in the same number of their road fixtures. Additionally, Walsall have also earned two clean sheets in their previous three home games. Therefore, we believe we to see this game featuring a total of Under 2.5 Goals.

Correct score prediction: 1-1 Draw

Forest Green have rattled the net just once in three of their previous five fixtures in League Two. Meanwhile, Walsall have also been quite identical by scoring only one goal in three of their recent four matches at Bescot Stadium. The Saddlers have also managed to score more than once in just one of their last five H2Hs with Forest. Given these statistics, we predict this game to conclude with a 1-1 draw.
