Our favourite betting picks and predictions for Cambridge vs Southampton

If you are not sure what is the best bet for Cambridge vs Southampton, check our top betting tips for this duel right here:

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Despite low expectations, Southampton didn't have such a bad start in Premier League since they have four points from the first three games. Meanwhile, Cambridge has seven points from the first five rounds in the new League One season.

Clearly, the guests are the favourites, but we would avoid betting on the winner here and focus on goals since we expect to see at least three goals in this game. After all, Southampton averaged 4.00 goals per game so far in Premier League, while Cambridge averaged 2.40 goals per game in League One this season.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Since we can see three or more goals being scored in this match, we can also see both teams scoring. Southampton's defense is pretty vulnerable and with them likely making many changes to the starting lineup, we don't see why the home team can't score here.

After all, both teams scored in all games that Southampton played in Premier League so far, while the same thing happened in three of the five League One games played by Cambridge until now.

Cambridge vs Southampton preview: Latest news, form, and probable lineups

Before these two teams meet on Tuesday, let's take a better look at them and their recent form, news, and other important things:

Cambridge

With two wins, one draw, and two losses in the first five games of the new season, Cambridge is currently in the tenth place in League One standings with seven points. That is a solid start for the team, whose ambitions are pretty much ending the season in the middle of the table in the third rank of English football.

Meanwhile, the team will be without Fejiri Ohenabirhie through injury, but the rest of the squad is ready to go.

Cambridge predicted lineup:

Mitov – Haunstrup, Okedina, Jones, Williams – Digby, O'Neil – Brophy, Knibbs, Smith – Ironside

Southampton

After another quiet transfer window, the expectations are pretty low for Southampton in Premier League and many see them fighting for survival. However, the team had a solid start of the new season with one win, one draw, and one loss in the first three rounds, including the exciting turnaround against Leicester over the weekend.

In addition to likely changes to the starting lineup to give some rest to the key players, Southampton will also miss injured Tino Livramento and Romain Perraud.

Southampton predicted lineup:

McCarthy – Djenepo, Bednarek, Lyanco, Valery – Lavia, Diallo – S. Armstrong, Elyounoussi, Walcott – Mara
