Plymouth vs Walsall Predictions & Match Preview

Plymouth vs Walsall
England – League One.
Date: Tuesday, 22nd January 2019.
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Home Park (Plymouth).

The Saddlers will travel to face a struggling Plymouth side in the Round 27 game of the League One game scheduled on Tuesday.

Being in the relegation zone id never happy for any team and their fans. Derek Adams’ team is unhappy right now as they are in such a spot right now. After Rochdale, the Pilgrims are the worst defensive side conceding 50 goals until now. So they will need to be hard as a rock when they play against Walsall who has scored plenty this season.

Plymouth has found some points recently as they are on a 3 match win streak in the league. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of the last 5 matches they played across all venues. But they couldn’t keep a clean sheet in those 4 games also. After 3 matches without a win, they won 2 matches in a row at home. All 6 of their previous home games had over 2.5 goals at the full time.

Visitors are also not better in defending their own goal conceding 43 goals in their 28 matches. There is only 5 points difference between them and their opponents for Tuesday. They ended a 7 match winless run with the win over Gillingham away from home lately. In 6 matches they played in a row the score had more than 2.5 goals.

A similar poor form away from home exists apart from a win over Gillingham. Only 2 wins came in their last 10 outings in the League and Cup competitions. So the match on Tuesday will be close enough.

Plymouth vs Walsall: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Walsall has won 3 and lost 2 of the last 5 h2h matches against Plymouth across all venues.

Plymouth vs Walsall: Prediction

The away team have won only 2 of their recent 10 away matches. On the other hand, Plymouth is on a 2 match win streak at home. So we can expect the home side to be on top of their game also with a streak over these opponents at home. Thus a bet can be placed on a home win with 1.81 odds.

Both the defenses are in sixes and sevens as recent performances show. In 5 of the last 6 home matches the hosts have conceded which is not surprising. The visitors have also given away goals in 4 of their last 5 matches on the road. SO we can bet on both teams to score with 1.66 odds.
