Cambridge vs Curzon Ashton: Our top betting tips

Curzon Ashton aren't having the best of seasons down in the National League North but progress into the FA Cup second round would change how their season to date is viewed.

Cambridge to win with room to spare

Backing Cambridge to win this game is the obvious bet, however, the odds are far from appealing. To crank things up we're betting on them to win with a -1 handicap applied. Now, their form hasn't been great but it's important to remember that there is a big difference between playing in League One and playing at step six – the National League North – which is where Curzon Ashton are. Curzon Ashton are struggling in that league too. With Cambridge at home they should be finding a way through and, once that Curzon resolve is broken, we'd expect superior quality and fitness to shine through with the U's likely to add an extra goal or two before the 90 minutes is up.

Both teams will not score

After the last game between these two ended 0-0 it's perhaps not a surprise that we're backing at least one of them to blank here as well. Form wise, just one of Cambridge's last five games have seen both teams score whilst Curzon Ashton have seen four of their last five games feature a ‘nil' in the final scoreline. On top of that, any chance of a Curzon Ashton win is going to be built on a strong rearguard, which means a BTTS – No bet just gives you that extra bit of security in case a shock is on the cards!

Will superior quality shine through in replay?

When these two met a couple of weeks ago Curzon Ashston did a fantastic job to take the tie to a replay but this time round it's widely expected that the league club – Cambridge – come out on top. The U's aren't exactly flying in League One but they're a few points clear of the relegation zone and therefore this game won't be seen as a distraction for them. Curzon Ashton find themselves in a similar position to Cambridge but down in the National League North. This replay is far from a distraction for them and they'll be buzzing ahead of a trip to a league ground. Whether that buzz will be enough to get them the result though remains to be seen.

Cambridge should have enough about them to win this game even if they do make a couple of changes to their lineup. With Joe Ironside and Jack Lankester in attacking positions, they should be able to breakdown a stubborn Curzon Ashton.

Cambridge Predicted lineup – Mannion, Williams, Okedina, Jones, Dunk, Simper, Digby, Knibbs, Lankester, Brophy, Ironside

Curzon Ashton will unquestionably be naming their strongest possible lineup in this match as they look to make it into the second round of the FA Cup. If they're to achieve that then the display of Tom Peers will be crucial; he's their biggest goal threat.

Curzon Ashton Predicted lineup – Renshaw, Mahon, Poscha, Matthews, Hampson, Hall, Barton, Walker, Hayhurst, Peers, Hancock
