Carlisle vs Salford Top Predictions and Best Odds

Both teams won their matches last weekend to put them in a position with the continued challenge of promotion.

Both Teams to Score

We are going with somewhat of a contrast in the first Carlisle vs Salford prediction. It's quite remarkable that Carlisle didn't have a single BTTS match in their last nine outings while Salford's record during the same stretch of games is in the opposite column, with seven matches when both teams got on the scoresheet. The main reason for this pick, however, is their h2h record. The last six times these teams met, either one scored at least a goal including the first time they met this season when Carlisle won 4-1. The hosts have been able to keep their opponents at bay while playing in front of their fans, not minding playing a dull goalless draw in the process if they get them at least a point.

Draw

Strangely, Salford lost three games from the last ten they played, and two of those games were played in their home stadium. Salford has won more games as an away team than when playing in front of their fans. For Carlisle it's a bit different, they enjoy going against their rivals with the support of their fans which is shown in their streak of the last six undefeated games when playing on their home turf. Historically, there were six Carlisle vs Salford meetings, and all the matches were played in the last four years. There were only two draws with Carlisle winning three times and Salford grabbing a single victory. Carlisle is only a point away from the top three spots while Salford has the same number of points as Bradford and Mansfield which means that one of those teams will fail in their effort to earn a playoff promotion spot.
