Reason For Carlisle VS Stevenage Betting Tips

Carlisle United have looked good value for a bump up to League One for the majority of the season, but the wheels have come off over the last month or two. Their draw at Hartlepool United on Friday continues their run of poor form and leaves them just inside the playoff zone but with just a two point cushion on Blackpool below them.

Considering there are as many as seven teams below them all in with a genuine shot of the playoffs, many of whom are in much better form than Carlisle, things aren’t looking overly bright for the hosts.

That draw on Good Friday makes it one win, two draws, and seven defeats in their last ten outings in League Two, with them failing to score in a huge seven of those games and only keeping two clean sheets.

Stevenage are one of the teams above Carlisle, but there is just a two point gap between the two sides and they have hit a bump in the road in the last week or so. They lost 1-0 at home to Morecambe on Friday to follow on from a 4-0 thrashing away to Colchester last weekend, but their overall form in the last few months has been exceptional.

They have won ten, drawn two, and lost three of their last 15 games, and whilst automatic promotion does look beyond them, if they can keep the performance level this high they should be well on track to secure a playoff position.

Away from home they have only won three of their last ten league matches, but they’re facing a Carlisle side who have won just two of their last 13 at home in all competitions and who have lost four of their last five. The hosts have scored just one goal in their last five games, so Stevenage will feel rightly confident about their chances.

Just one of Carlisle’s last five home games have seen both teams get on the scoresheet, whilst Stevenage haven’t seen both teams find the net in any of their last four on the road. This makes odds of 11/10 for Both Teams Not to Score look good value, and I’m going for that alongside a 1-0 win for the visitors at 8/1.

Head To Head

Carlisle have won five, drawn one, and lost one of their last seven meetings with Stevenage.
