Wycombe vs Hartlepool Prediction and Analysis

The hosts will go into the fixture off the back of a pretty rough set of games having failed to win any of their previous 5 games. The only fixture they have avoided defeat in their previous 4 is the one against this side in the original first round fixture.

They are currently 4th in League One with 31 points. They are 3 and 5 points behind Wigan and Plymouth in the first and second positions respectively.

The visitors have had a better run of games leading into Tuesday as they have avoided defeat in 3 of their last 5 games. They have punched above their weights for a club playing their first season back in the EFL. They currently occupy the 10th position in the table.

The visitors have accumulated more points over the past few weeks, but their losses have been by a huge scoreline. Despite their poor form the hosts have faced better quality teams and have been defeated just twice in the league at home.

We do not see them getting knocked out by a team who played non league football in the previous year. Hence I have backed a win for Wycombe.

With both teams’ previous 4 of 5 games seeing a minimum of 3 goals being scored, expect a scoreline of over 2.5 goals.

Wycombe vs Hartlepool Betting Tips

  • Wycombe to win @ 1.57 odds.
  • Over 2.5 goals @ 1.85 odds.
