Competition: League Two
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport
In a battle between two sides who are really seeking maximum points on Wednesday evening, Walsall will host Newport from behind closed doors in midweek.
Starting with the hosts, while Walsall might still find themselves flirting with the top-12, they have continued to show a host of issues since opening the New Year. In their 28 League Two matchups so far this season, they have recorded eight wins, 13 draws and seven defeats, scoring 35 and conceding 37 in return. Managing to muster themselves a points tally of 37, the Reds open the midweek fixtures sat 14th in the standings and just a single point adrift of breaking into the top-half. However, as for their recent run of results, with a growing reputation as the fourth-tiers draw specialists, Walsall have managed to win just one of their last nine straight League Two matchups, a run that stems back to December 19th. It should also be highlighted, along with their last three home fixtures, seven of Walsall’s last eight home contests has finished with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, although Newport might still be scrapping it out in the play-off positions, they are in the midst of what has been a worrying spell. In their 28 League Two matchups so far this season, they have recorded 12 wins, eight draws and eight defeats, scoring 37 and conceding 31 in return. Managing to muster themselves a points tally of 44, the Welsh outfit open the midweek fixtures sat seventh in the table and holding just a one-point buffer from slipping out of the play-off spots. However, as for their recent run of results, with just a single point from their last three matchups, it should also be highlighted that Newport have won just one of their last 13 fixtures across all formats. With a reputation for their lively meetings on the road and each of their last six straight away fixtures finishing with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome on Wednesday evening.
