Walsall vs Carlisle Predictions, Odds, and Betting Suggestions

Monday’s clash between Walsall and Carlisle isn’t going to be your run-of-the-mill English Football League Two showdown. You’ll read more about it in the odds section of our Walsall vs Carlisle betting tips but the two teams have identical odds and we expect a tight clash at Bescot Stadium.

Isaac Hutchinson to Score Anytime

At the start of the season, no expert predicted Isaac Hutchinson will be so far up the goalscorers’ ladder. However, Hutchinson, 22, proved everyone wrong to score six and provide teammates with six cut-throat passes resulting in goals.

Coach Michael Flynn has brought out the best in Isaac Hutchinson and with the 22-year-old currently performing at his peak best, we’re more than convinced in our Walsall vs Carlisle prediction.

Especially, when you realize how well Walsall have been attacking recently. Coach Michael Flynn’s boys scored in four of the last five league games and it’s mainly due to Isaac Hutchinson’s tremendous vision.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our second Walsall vs Carlisle prediction favors a rather quiet game at Bescot Stadium on Monday. With Carlisle conceding barely two goals in their last four English Football League Two matches, Monday’s clash is destined to be a lackluster event.

Furthermore, a staggering 70% of the last 10 matches between the two clubs ended with under 2.5 goals. The only three games that didn’t end with two or fewer goals resulted in a 2-1 win for either Walsall or Carlisle.

Carlisle have the 5th best defensive line in the league with only 37 goals conceded in 38 matches. The only League Two clubs to perform at a higher level at the back are Leyton Orient, Northampton, Stevenage, Stockport, and Bradford City.

Walsall odds: 43/25 (2.72) – 35.0%

Draw odds: 2/1 (3.00) – 30.0%

Carlisle odds: 43/25 (2.72) – 35.0%

The Walsall vs Carlisle showdown on the 10th of April has no expected winners, according to Ladbrokes. Both Walsall and Carlisle have the same exact odds – 43/25 (2.72) and that means the victory could go either way as both sides have a 35.0% win probability. A draw at 2/1 (3.00) is as close as it can possibly get so we might very possibly see Michael Flynn and Paul Simpson share the spoils on Monday.

Walsall vs Carlisle Lineups & Team News

Walsall

Isaac Hutchinson was a savior for coach Michael Flynn in Walsall’s last home game. A 95th-minute stunner by Hutchinson proved decisive as Walsall managed to poach a point away from Sutton United who previously got ahead in the game via a well-placed Alistair Smith shot in the 31st minute.

Predicted lineup – Evans (GK), McEntee, Daniels, Low, Monthe, Kinsella, Riley, Hutchinson, Knowles, Wilkinson & Stevens

Carlisle

Coach Paul Simpson is an old fox. He knew perfectly well what he was getting himself into on the 1st of April when his boys faced the frontrunner for the League Two title at Brisbane Road. Lined up ultra-defensively in a 5-3-2 formation, Carlisle were out to secure a clean sheet, and up until the 73rd minute of the game, it worked. Unfortunately, faith had something else stored for Carlisle as Jon Mellish scored an unfortunate own goal.

Predicted lineup – Holy (GK), Armer, Mellish, Feeney, Huntington, Back, McCalmont, Guy, Moxon, Patrick & Dennis

Starting Lineups

Player to Watch: Kristian Dennis

There’s one man whom we fear might put a dent in our Walsall vs Carlisle predictions. And it’s Carlisle’s Kristian Dennis. Despite his age, the 33-year-old striker has been ever-present for his club and manager, and as a result, he bagged 17 goals. He’s still in the run for the top scorer award but to catch up to the rest, he’ll have to outdo himself on Monday and score a bunch more against Walsall’s watertight defense.
