Tip Reasoning

Relegation favourites Leyton Orient haven’t had much go their way this season and we think that there will be another nail in their coffin when they travel to Cambridge this weekend. With odds as short as 4/9 for a home win we have to try and get our value elsewhere and we think the best value is backing Cambridge to score in both halves, which is available at 5/4 with bet365. For our correct score tip we see it being a pretty comfortable afternoon for the hosts and we are backing them to win 3-0, which is priced at 17/2 with the same site.

Cambridge boss Shaun Derry will feel a little frustrated with how things have gone recently for Cambridge as the side have not put back to back wins together since the end of February. The U’s still have plenty to play for though and they are just five points outside the play-off places with six games remaining.

Leyton Orient’s time in the Football League looks to be coming to a painful end as they sit nine points from safety and they could be as little as two games away from having their fate confirmed. Orient have lost their last five matches and they have only avoided defeat in three of their matches in 2017. The club is in turmoil off the pitch too and still have severe money worries to stave off if they are to remain in business. They are also a mess in defence and the divisions worst defence has conceded 72 goals in their 40 games. With almost two goals conceded per game it is perhaps not surprising that almost a third of the teams that they have played have scored in both halves against them.
