Carlisle vs Northampton Top Predictions and Best Odds

One of the biggest games of the season is upon us in round 42 of League Two when Carlisle meets Northampton.

Draw

Looking for a clear winner in this Carlisle vs Northampton prediction might be a tall order considering that these teams are pretty evenly matched aiming to produce positive displays in the crucial stage of the season. Both of these teams have played 13 draw matches this season, but curiously their only meeting ended with a 2-1 win for Northampton. Carlisle has played a couple of draws in their last five outings while Northampton had only one. A stat that goes in the other direction considering this pick is the fact that out of the last ten matches between these teams, only one had ended without a winner.

Under 2.5 Goals

Defending will be the key for both of these teams in the final stage of the season, especially as we are drawing near to the Carlisle vs Northampton match. Both teams have the same number of under 2.5 goals matches at 24, but even more important is that the home team has played the last six matches with fewer than three goals scored which is quite a transformation considering that Carlisle has the third-best attack in League Two. Northampton has played two out of the last five games with fewer than three goals in the back of the net. It is certainly of interest to check how Carlisle stands when facing teams at home, they had four straight matches with the limit at two goals. Northampton had four of the last five away games that didn't produce a goalscoring show.
