Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Buoyed by a 2-0 win over Solihull Moors, Walsall will look to make a flying start to the new League Two season when they face Hartlepool on Saturday. The Saddlers finished the last campaign in 16th place, and, no doubt, they are eyeing a top-table finish this time out. Since the club chiefs have been very active in the summer transfer window, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on the home side.
The Pools, on the other hand, were having their ups and downs in pre-season, and seeing that they often struggle on the travels, we are going to put our money on the home team. You should bear in mind that the likes of Zaine Francis-Angol, Gary Liddle, Martin Smith, Josh McDonald, and Omar Bogle have left Hartlepool in the summer, to name just a few.
