Carlisle unlikely to continue four-game winning run at Walsall

| 19.11.2010

Walsall may have lost their last four League One games and are without star striker Darren Byfield, but recent history suggests that they should take at least a point from their home game with Carlisle.

The correct scoreline market could offer better value than simply picking the result with a steady sequence of results taking shape between the two in recent seasons.

Seven of their last eight meetings have finished either in a 2-1 home win or 1-1, which may spell bad news for Carlisle’s four-game winning run in all competitions.

Walsall are 10/1 to win the game 2-1, which means that a £10 bet on this result will mean a win of £100 plus a return of the original £10 stake.

Meanwhile, the 1-1 draw is available at 11/2.

Also interesting is that neither team have managed a clean sheet in the last 13 games between the pair, while more than three goals have only been scored twice in this time.

Although slightly risky to back Walsall to beat Carlisle at 11/5, Plymouth present a far more likely straight win opportunity.

Plymouth have won their last three games with Brentford and are 13/10 to do so again.

The pair are currently only separated by goal difference in the bottom half of the league standings and Brentford have the added negative of participating in a midweek FA Cup replay away at Aldershot, while Plymouth got some extra preparation time.

Bournemouth may be fully involved in the League One promotion picture, but a vast number of home wins from their recent games with Leyton Orient lead to the opinion that they may return home from Brisbane Road pointless.

Nine of the last 11 meetings between the pair have ended in a home win and Orient are 7/5 to beat Bournemouth.

Bournemouth have also won just one of their seven away games this season, which does not inspire confidence in them landing the spoils at 9/5. See the complete League One football betting odds market.
