Free Betting Tips for Cambridge vs Forest Green

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

Cambridge to Win

Our first Cambridge vs Forest Green prediction backs the hosts to record this much-needed win. Cambridge remain in the relegation zone, but a win now could still save them if results elsewhere go their way too. Cambridge are certainly fighting for their survival and they won 2 of their last 3 home games. Forest Green were relegated a long time ago. They come into this match with just 1 win in the last 24 rounds and only 1 win on the road (D7 L10).

Smith to Score Anytime

If Cambridge are to get something from this match they most likely will have to score. That’s why our next Cambridge vs Forest Green prediction backs Cambridge’s most likely goalscorer Smith (12 goals) to find the back of the net. Smith comes into the match full of confidence after scoring in 6 of the last 8 rounds. Also, he scored in all of the last 3 home games and now is up against a Forest Green team that haven’t kept an away clean sheet all season.

Clean Sheet Cambridge

Our final free betting tip is for Cambridge to keep a clean sheet. Forest Green are very low on motivation and morale and they scored just 1 goal in their last 4 matches combined. Also, Cambridge kept 6 of their 8 clean sheets so far at home.

Cambridge vs Forest Green Lineups and Team News

Cambridge

Cambridge missed a golden opportunity to gain control of their own destiny. An away win vs Burton on Tuesday was elevating the U’s out of the relegation zone. Instead, they lost 0-1 and now need a win + 2 other teams to drop points if they are to stand a chance of survival.

Latest news

Some changes to the lineup are possible with the quick turnaround so late in the season seriously testing the fitness of everyone. Among the injured players is the important playmaker May. Also, centre-backs Rossi and Taylor have been missed bitterly at times.

Forest Green

Forest Green failed to even give their fans something to cheer in their last home game of the season when they lost 0-3 vs Oxford. Once again, the defending was dreadful and the motivation was simply non-existent. The Green Devils can’t wait for this torture to be over as they are dead last and with a single win in 24.

Latest news

The gaffer could trust some fringe players in this last round as he starts building a squad for the lower division. The options will be limited anyway with 7 players set to miss due to injuries. Among the injured players are star midfielders Stevenson and McAllister.
