Reason For Exeter VS Carlisle Betting Tips

There’s been fireworks on each of the three occasions these sides have met this season and with such a prize on offer we are expecting more of the same when they collide on Thursday. We think combining an Exeter win with both teams to score represents some excellent value at 13/4 with bet365. For our correct score tip we are going with another thriller and are backing the Grecians to record a 3-2 victory at 22/1 with the same site, to book their spot in the final.

The head to head record makes for some interesting reading when researching this match as it’s been goals a plenty in recent meetings. Nine of the previous 12 meetings between the sides have finished with both teams managing to find the back of the net and that includes each of the previous four. Those same four matches have averaged a massive five goals per game so backing over 2.5 goals also looks a good bet at 13/20, if you want to play it a bit more conservative.

Exeter finished the League Two season as one of the division’s top scorers with 75 goals from their 46 games. They then added another three goals when they made the long trip to Carlisle in the first leg on Sunday so will be well fancied to do the business in front of goal once more. The Grecians finished the season in fairly average form and will feel they will have a point to prove, after throwing away a goal lead when the sides met earlier this week.

Under Keith Curle, this season Carlisle have been a side which has lived and died by the sword.  Following the sale of prolific striker Charlie Wyke to Bradford at the end of the January transfer window, they recovered well and recent form has seen them return to their old ways once more. They have 13 goals from their previous six outings and with both teams scoring in over 70% of their matches this season it looks set to be another cracker.

Head To Head

Exeter have the edge in the head to head between these two sides with a record of 21 wins, 17 draws and 19 defeats. Carlisle won both the meetings in the regular season with identical 3-2 victories and a thrilling first leg on Sunday saw the sides locked together in a 3-3 draw.
