League One betting, Hartlepool - Exeter

Pools have four draws of opening five matches (and one win), but they played against sides like MK Dons, Hudders, Sheff Utd (Carling), Stevenage away. Before losing at Scunny (Cup), they had won at Rochdale (3-1). Some important players are returning to the squad, key defender Sam Collins and good-old Solano are fit, as well as forward Sam Collins and midfielder Antony Sweeney. Only doubt is striker James Poole. They have signed former Coventry City defender Stephen Wright on a short-term deal.

After three defeats in a row, Exeter defeated Chesterfield at home 3-1. During the midweek, they eliminated Plymouth after penalties. And while it’s certainly a moral boost, 120 minutes of play also should have an impact on team’s fatigue. Striker, Guillem Bauzà, after got injured last weekend will be probably out for few weeks.

Despite so many draws, Hartlepool look fine, they have some players back to the team and it’s the time for the first home win. Situation about Poole forces me to take another -0.25 and some covering of a draw. Still fine with the odds.

Bet: Hartlepool -0.25
Odd: 2.00 (188bet)
Stake: 7/10
