Tip Reasoning

  • Oxford have won five of their last six matches in League One.
  • All five of those victories saw over 3.5 goals scored.
  • Burton have scored in seven of their last eight league fixtures.
  • Four of the last five meetings between these two sides have seen over 3.5 goals scored.

U’s looking to secure playoff berth

The race for the final playoff position in League One is set to go down to the wire, with seventh-place Oxford sitting a point behind Portsmouth, while Charlton are only below the U’s on goal difference.

A late upturn in form has moved Oxford into playoff contention, with Karl Robinson’s side having won five of their last six matches.

There have been plenty of goals on offer during that impressive run, with over 3.5 having been scored in all five of Oxford’s most recent victories.

That sequence includes a 6-0 hammering of Crewe and a 4-1 triumph over Shrewsbury – emphatic wins that could prove pivotal if the final playoff place is decided on goal difference.

Burton have also been in good form of late, as the Brewers have lost just three of their last 18 league games, a run that ended any concerns of relegation a long time ago.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has also seen his side score in seven of their previous eight matches, while Burton have only failed to net in one away match since November.

Four of the last five meetings between Oxford and Burton have also yielded over 3.5 goals and we are predicting more of the same on Sunday.

Given Oxford’s greater need for the points, our overall score prediction is for a 3-1 victory for the U’s, which may prove enough to sneak them into the playoffs.
