Walsall arrive in poor form

After suffering relegation from League One last season, it’s fair to say Walsall haven’t adapted to life in the fourth tier very well. They came into the season hoping to make an immediate return but have struggled to find any sort of consistency, heading into this weekend in 14th place, having collected just 36 points from 30 games.

11 points short of the play-offs has it looking unlikely that Walsall will launch a late assault on the top 7 and in their current form, it’s more sliding down the table they have to be worried about. Indeed, confidence is very low in home ranks coming into this fixture, given the side have now lost 4 of their last 5 games, whilst conceding an average of 2 goals a game. 

Crewe looking to continue promotion push

Meanwhile, Crewe have been one of the surprise packages in this League Two season thus far. Indeed, the side didn’t come into the campaign as anything near promotion favourites but have performed very well; currently stationed in the automatic promotion spots with an impressive 52 points from 29 matches.

Unbeaten in 4 matches, Crewe are running along nicely at the moment and go into every game with confidence. The Alex are a potent outfit that has the ability to trouble anyone and having notched at least once in 13 straight games, they’ll have faith in their ability to open up a struggling opponent this weekend.

Crewe have to be fancied

Ultimately, Crewe look by far the most likely winners of Saturday’s clash and you have to fancy them to pick up all 3 points. There’s a reason why 16 points separate the two in the standings and the visitors are the only outfit with any kind of momentum behind themselves.

All things considered, we see good value in backing a Crewe win and feel it provides best value as far as the betting is concerned. Crewe have already got the better of Walsall once this campaign and we think they’ll be able to do so again, with a 2-1 margin of away victory on the cards.
