Reason For Cambridge Utd VS Exeter Betting Tips

Cambridge United’s promotion credentials were cast into doubt on Friday as they lost 2-1 at Grimsby Town, and whilst they are still very much in the running, this will have been a bitter blow to them. They are currently 11th in the table, but there are just three points separating them and the last of the playoff spots.

Their overall form has been patchy but respectable, with them winning six, drawing three, and losing four of their last 13 League Two matches, although in this period they haven’t managed to win more than two games in a row at all.

Exeter City are in a much more favourable position, although it is by no means an untouchable one. Their 2-1 win over Barnet on Friday saw them bounce back from their weekend defeat at home to Newport and leaves them 5th in the table.

Portsmouth, who occupy the last of the automatic promotion positions, are looking unreachable ten points above them, but below them are a host of teams just waiting for one of the playoff occupants to slip up.

Exeter City have just a four point cushion before dropping out of the top seven, and there is only six points between them and 13th placed Wycombe Wanderers, so we should be in for a thrilling climax to the League Two season.

The visitors have only lost one of their last six games in the league, and their away form is more than respectable. They have won five, drawn two, and lost two of their last nine away days and are facing a Cambridge United side who have won two, drawn three, and lost five of their last ten at home.

The hosts have scored in 11 of their last 15 home games though, keeping just five clean sheets in the process and facing the prospect of going head to head with an Exeter City side who have scored in 13 of their last 15 away days. The visitors haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last six away games though, so odds of 8/11 for Both Teams to Score look good value, along with a 2-1 win for Exeter City at 9/1.

Head To Head

Exeter City have won five, drawn one, and lost one of their last seven meetings with Cambridge United.

Cambridge Utd VS Exeter Stats
