Free Betting Tips for Cambridge vs Charlton

If you can’t seem to decide on a bet for Cambridge vs Charlton, check our top betting predictions for this duel here:

Cambridge or Draw

Our first Cambridge vs Charlton prediction is that the hosts, who are desperate for points in search of survival, will avoid losing this game. Charlton enter this match on the back of only 1 win in their last 6 league outings (D2 L3). The Addicks are very low on motivation right now as they are stuck in mid-table for the rest of the season. At the same time, Cambridge desperately need points and they will give it their all in every remaining home match.

BTTS – No

With both sides struggling to score goals it is no surprise that our next Cambridge vs Charlton prediction is that not both teams will score. Only 1 of Cambridge’s last 6 league matches saw both sides scoring. It’s a very similar story for Charlton with just 2 of their last 7 league games producing BTTS finishes. Also, in 4 of Charlton’s last 5 away games not both sides scored.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our final Cambridge vs Charlton prediction follows from the previous one. We don’t think there will be more than 2 total goals scored in this match. All of Cambridge’s last 6 matches had 2 goals or less in them. Also, all of the only 3 previous H2H clashes were low-scoring affairs and ended under 2.5 goals. Charlton themselves rarely get involved in thrillers and 4 of their most recent 5 games had fewer than 3 goals.

Cambridge vs Charlton Lineups and Team News

Cambridge

Cambridge are under great pressure after being able to win just once in the last 14 rounds. The U’s continue to find it very difficult to create scoring chances and this is the main reason why they struggle so much. Despite all the bad results coach Bonner has been patient and he actually used the same starting XI in 6 of the last 7 rounds.

Latest news

Striker Ironside was dropped to the bench in the last game, this is the first time in 7 rounds the gaffer opted to change his lineup. He’s likely to start again now though as his replacement Tracey has been disappointing. There is hope for better forward returns as Knibbs is fit-again too, he made his comeback as a sub last weekend.

There are plenty of injury concerns. Main playmaker May and January signing Thomas are both out for the season, which restricts seriously the options in midfield. Have 4 other long-term absentees. Also, the starting left-back Dunk is doubtful.

Charlton

Charlton stopped their 5-game winless run with a 4-1 midweek success against another struggling side Morecambe. For the first time in months, the Addicks looked like a threat in this match and they scored 4 goals to prove it. Still, Charlton can’t move much in the standings from now on and they are stuck in mid-table for the rest of the season.

Latest news

The gaffer could be tempted to keep the lineup unchanged after the very strong performance in the last game. Still, if the doubtful regulars Sessegnon and Kilkenny are passed fit on time they might be considered. Will remain without the important centre-back Ness (knee) and 2 other long-term absentees.
