Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Exeter City and Bradford City face each other at St James Park in what is expected to be an entertaining day-one clash. Exeter were struggling in pre-season, with the team losing each of their last three warm-up games, and it is no wonder the odds for away win have been dropping. The club chiefs did well to keep hold of top scorer Matthew Jay, who is likely to pose a big threat to the opposition defenders.
The Bantams, on the other hand, aim to build on a pre-season win over Accrington Stanley. Bradford City have big ambitions for the 2021/22 League Two campaign, but given their anything but good away record in the English fourth tier, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Andy Cook, who signed a permanent deal with the club in the summer, will be the man to watch in the away team.
