Leyton Orient vs Wrexham predictions and betting tips for this Saturday’s National League clash on March 9th with an anytime goalscorer tip and goals prediction included.
Its 1st vs 2nd in the National League on Saturday lunchtime as Wrexham make the long journey to East London to face Leyton Orient. The hosts have won two on the bounce, but they haven’t looked convincing in either. They have been pretty exceptional at home with ten wins from 17 outings here, and they won’t make this easy for their Welsh visitors. Wrexham are in flying form at the moment, and will be looking to continue their upward momentum here. See our Leyton Orient vs Wrexham predictions below.
Although the National League title cannot be won on Saturday lunchtime, one of these two sides will take a huge step towards League Two football in front of the BT Sport cameras. Leyton Orient were victorious in midweek, but made hard work of it at Barrow, and it’s a quick turnaround for Justin Edinburgh’s side. Wrexham weren’t in action, and they’ve had plenty of time to prepare for this crucial tie. They beat in-form Chesterfield at the Racecourse Ground seven days ago, and they will be full of confidence ahead of this clash. Wrexham’s away form had been a concern earlier in the campaign, with the Dragons winning just twice on the road between the end of August and the start of January. However, they are now unbeaten in three on the road, and they are looking well-organised at the back. Leyton Orient have already beaten them twice this season, and their ebullient and enthusiastic celebration did not go unnoticed. It could help fuel the fire, and give Wrexham the motivation they require. The O’s have won just one of their last three home games, and they are conceding too many goals at the moment to be backed. Wrexham or Draw (Double Chance) is the first of our National League betting tips for Saturday lunchtime.
Wrexham have been defensively sound all season, whilst Leyton Orient have only conceded eleven home goals throughout the entire campaign. The last two matches between this pair have ended with one or two goals, and another close contest is expected. Five of Leyton Orient’s last seven games have finished with 2-3 goals, and that could be the best way to approach this one. Although the defences have been excellent this season, neither team has been exemplary at the back in recent weeks, and there is plenty at stake here. With plenty of firepower on the pitch, and the Under 2.5 Goals so short in the betting, 2-3 Goals looks the better option. It is the second of our Leyton Orient vs Wrexham predictions for Saturday.
Wrexham are sharing the goals around at the moment, with a number of players making contributions in recent weeks. The majority of the leaders in the anytime goalscorer betting market play their football in E10, and it’s Jordan Maguire Drew who is the fancy. The former Wrexham loanee claimed a goal and an assist in midweek, and seems to be finding form for the Os. Three of his six goals have come in the last four National League games, and he could come back to haunt his former (temporary) employers. He is the third of our Leyton Orient vs Wrexham betting tips for this televised tie.
Leyton Orient are understandably chalked up as the favourites, and can be backed at 21/20 to pick up a hugely important three points. Wrexham have been in decent form, and can be backed at 5/2, whilst its the same price for the game to end all-square.
BT Sport viewers will be hoping for an entertaining fixture, and it’s 19/20 for the Both Teams to Score? Yes in this one. It’s 23/20 for Over 2.5 Goals, which would only have landed in one of their last three meetings.
Macauley Bonne has been prolific this campaign, but he’s now goalless in four. However, he did claim an assist in mideek, and he is the favourite in the first goalscorer market at 7/2. He is followed by Josh Koroma, who is 6/1. Jay Simpson is back amongst the goals since returning to the club and he can be backed at 7/1.
