    Wouldn't or Would?

    Hi everyone,

    I read this and now I'm a bit confused.

    "Close the hatch behind us and be ready to open that hatch at a moment’s notice if we come running.”
    “You think there may be some surprises left for us?”
    I wouldn’t doubt it, but you never know. I’m probably just being overly cautious."
    Considering that he adds "but you never know" to his answer.
    Shouldn't the answer have been: “I would doubt it, but you never know. I’m probably just being overly cautious."?

    Can someone help me out here please?
