Wrexham vs Walsall – Preview, Tips and Odds
Wrexham and Walsall will face each other in a League Two clash on Tuesday, August 15, at the SToK Cae Ras stadium. Both teams are looking for their first win of the season, after drawing one and losing one of their opening two games. Here is a preview, some tips, and some odds for this match.


Wrexham are back in the English Football League after 14 years of absence, thanks to their promotion from the National League last season. The Welsh club, which is co-owned by Hollywood actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, have high hopes of making an impact in League Two, but have had a difficult start so far.

Wrexham drew 2-2 with Stockport in their first game, after conceding a late equalizer. They then lost 4-2 to Notts County, after being reduced to 10 men in the first half. Wrexham have shown some attacking flair and resilience, but have also been vulnerable defensively and indisciplined.

Wrexham's manager Phil Parkinson will hope to get his first win as the boss of the club, and will rely on his experienced players such as captain Shaun Pearson, midfielder Luke Young, and striker Paul Mullin. Mullin was the top scorer in League Two last season with 32 goals for Cambridge United, and has already scored three goals for Wrexham this season.

Walsall are also aiming to bounce back from a disappointing campaign last season, when they finished 19th in League Two and narrowly avoided relegation. The Saddlers have appointed Matthew Taylor as their new manager, who is making his debut in senior management after working as an assistant coach at Tottenham Hotspur.

Walsall started their season with a 2-1 win over Tranmere, thanks to a brace from striker Rory Holden. However, they then suffered a 2-0 defeat to Forest Green, after conceding two goals in the first 15 minutes. Walsall have shown some defensive solidity and organization, but have also struggled to create chances and score goals.

Taylor will hope to get his second win as the manager of Walsall, and will count on his new signings such as goalkeeper Carl Rushworth, defender Ash Taylor, and midfielder Joss Labadie. Labadie was the captain of Newport County last season, and led them to the League Two play-off final, where they lost to Morecambe on penalties.

Tips and Odds

This match is expected to be a close and competitive one, as both teams are desperate for points and confidence. The bookmakers are slightly favoring Wrexham to win, with odds of 2.10, compared to 3.40 for Walsall and 3.30 for a draw.

However, based on the recent form and performance of both teams, a draw seems to be a more likely outcome. Both teams have scored and conceded four goals in their two games so far, and have shown some strengths and weaknesses in different areas. A draw would also suit both managers, who would not want to lose their third game of the season.

Therefore, a good tip for this match is to bet on a draw with both teams to score (BTTS), which has odds of 4.00. Another good tip is to bet on Paul Mullin to score anytime for Wrexham, which has odds of 2.20. Mullin has been in excellent form for Wrexham, scoring three goals in two games, and has also scored against Walsall before when he played for Cambridge United.
