Best Tip: Both teams to score

Studying the KickOff match predictions, bookmakers' odds and relevant statistics, there's one market which catches the eye for this tie: both teams to score. In Tranmere and Walsall we have two sides going head-to-head that regularly score, but equally have trouble shutting the opposition out, and we expect them to maintain that reputation on Saturday afternoon. BTTS – yes best odds: 1.67.
