Cambridge vs Grimsby: Our top betting tips

Cambridge are struggling in League One right now as they hover just outside of the bottom four. Will they have enough about them to see off lower league Grimsby? Find out with our Cambridge vs Grimsby match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Cambridge to win

We begin our predictions for this match by backing Cambridge to win. They U's have been in poor form of late with no win in their last five matches and just two victories across their previous 10 games. With that duly noted, it's also worth pointing out that they've only lost one of their past four games. Grimsby meanwhile are winless in their last four games and they've lost two of their last three. On top of that, Grimsby have a rather shoddy record against their hosts. Cambridge have won four of the last five head to head matches and haven't lost to Grimsby since 2017; that was eight meetings ago. With all of that considered, a home win feels like the wisest bet here – especially when you consider the odds on offer.

Going under 2.5 goals

Our next tip for this game sees us backing the match to go south of the 2.5 goal mark. Cambridge's last five games have all gone under that 2.5 cut off with a grand total of just two goals seen across that period. Grimsby have seen each of their last two games fall south of the 2.5 threshold too. When you look at their away form specifically, it is three of their last five that have gone under 2.5. Three of the last five head to head matches between the two sides have gone under 2.5 goals as well.

A good opportunity for Cambridge to grab a long overdue win

It is undeniable that neither of these sides are going to go deep into the FA Cup. Both, however, could really do with chalking up a victory after reasonably long periods without a win. For Cambridge, it's arguably even more important. They're at home, low on confidence and really need to inject some positive vibes into their season.

Mark Bonner has been lauded for the job he has done at Cambridge but things are getting tough for the U's right now. Their form is really poor and goals, in particular, have been a big problem for them. Will Joe Ironside deliver the goods for them in this game?

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

Grimsby are the epitome of inconsistent this season. Their league form reads as six wins, six draws and six defeats from the 18 games they've played this season and, coming into the game, they've not won since the first round. They impressed hugely in that game taking Plymouth apart but that could be their downfall here as it will mean their hosts don't take them for granted.

Grimsby Predicted lineup – Crocombe, Waterfall, Maher, Smith, Efete, Clifton, Morris, Green, Amos, McAtee, Khan
