Crewe vs Walsall Top Predictions and Best Odds

Two teams that are out of danger when it comes to the relegation battle, but are aiming for some improvement in form for the last stretch of the season.

Both Teams to Score

For this Crewe vs Walsall prediction, we are going with both teams scoring a goal which is something that has been a struggle for either team. Crewe only had one game from their past five when both teams have put the ball in the back of the net, and in the last two games alone their goal difference is disappointing 0-7. Walsall has been only slightly better, but at least they had three BTTS matches from the past five encounters. The first match of the season between these teams ended with a goalless draw, but looking back at their last five outings, three of them ended with both teams scoring.

Draw

Wins are hard to come by for teams in this Crewe vs Walsall duel. Crewe has done better, however winning twice in their last five matches, but when we go a bit further with their stats, during the last ten league games, they have earned only three wins. Walsall has won just once in the same number of matches. The positive stat for this pick alone is the fact that these sides have played three draws in the last five times they met each other. For the season, Crewe played 15 games when the teams split the points, and when it comes to Walsall, no team had more draws, they are at 18.

Team News, Preview, and Crewe vs Walsall Lineups

Crewe

The most important thing for Crewe is that they are going to play in League Two next season. They didn't have a great year, and the losses were piling up, but the team managed to hold on and avoid a significant drop in form which would take them into insecurity when it comes to their league standings. The squad led by coach Lee Bell is in good spirits ahead of the final stretch of games before the season shuts down.

Provisional lineup: Beadle, Robertson, O'Riordan, Offord, Adebisi, Brook, Tabiner, Thomas, Agyei, Ainley, Baker-Richardson.

Walsall

The visiting team has been slightly better than their opponent at this point in the season, at least when it comes to the points they earned. Their form, however, is not positive as the team only has one win in their past ten matches. The good thing is that they are safe from relegation, even though the fans won't be happy with the way the team is playing right now. Hayden White is suspended for the upcoming match.

Provisional lineup: Evans, Monthe, Low, McEntee, Gordon, Comley, Kinsella, Knowles, Hutchinson, Wilkinson, Matt.

Starting Lineups

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Danny Johnson

Danny Johnson's impressive season for Walsall saw him score 13 league goals in 30 appearances while adding a couple of assists to his tally. But, that wasn't all he did this season. Crewe played in EFL Trophy, EFL Cup, and the FA Cup with Johnson scoring a goal in each competition.
