Bradford to win

Meanwhile, Hartlepool have the potential to threaten from setpieces, but they may not harm Bradford more than just getting a goal or two.

Andy Cook to score anytime

Andy Cook’s sensational form continues with the striker scoring in the draw with Newport. It has taken his league tally for the campaign to 20 goals with a whopping 11 of them helping open the scoring.

Both teams to score – yes

Hartlepool provided plenty of nervous moments for Northampton from setpiece situations and they have the potential to repeat the same away from home. Bradford have been pretty good defensively but they have not been 100% solid, as proved by Newport snatching a point in the latest match. The Bradford vs Hartlepool odds find a lot of value in opting for both teams to score.
