Cambridge vs Morecambe – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Morecambe have lost six of their last seven games on the road ahead of their latest away fixture at Cambridge in League One. Read our top three predictions for this week’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Cambridge to Win

Cambridge were toppled by Wycombe in midweek, though the U’s had put back-to-back victories together before that and they can return to winning ways against notoriously poor travellers, Morecambe, on Saturday. Only Crewe have collected fewer points on the road this term than the Shrimps and having lost six of their last seven away assignments, Derek Adams’ side are worth opposing this weekend.

Under 2.5 Goals

Shot-shy Cambridge have notched just six times in their last six home games, so a deluge of goals from Mark Bonner’s side shouldn’t be expected against Morecambe on Saturday. The Shrimps meanwhile, have bagged just three goals in their last seven league fixtures combined, so bettors should consider a stake on under 2.5 goals when these toothless outfits clash at Abbey Stadium.

Clean Sheet: Cambridge

Cambridge have shown that they can produce robust defensive performances at home this term, as evidenced by their return of four clean sheets from their last six fixtures at Abbey Stadium. Another shutout could be in the offering on Saturday when a Morecambe team that failed to score in four of their last six skirmishes on the road arrive in Cambridgeshire. With that considered, we recommend backing the hosts to claim another clean sheet.

Cambridge vs Morecambe Match Preview and Team News


Greg Taylor, Kai McKenzie-Lyle and Jensen Weir are all sidelined for Cambridge at present, while Liam O’Neil and Shilow Tracey – who missed Tuesday’s defeat at home to Wycombe – are still rated as doubtful. The U’s are hovering in mid-table limbo ahead of the campaign’s climax, though they are likelier to finish in the bottom half.


Alfie McCalmont and Greg Leigh missed Tuesday’s surprise win over Oxford for Morecambe, though both players should be back in contention to feature on Saturday. Keeper Kyle Letheren remains a doubt, however, while Freddie Price is a confirmed absentee from midfield. The Shrimps’ shock win against Oxford was their second victory on the bounce at home, though Morecambe are a far weaker prospect on the road.
