Oxford United odds: 4/5 (1.80) – 55.0%

Draw odds: 13/5 (3.60) – 26.0%

Carlisle odds: 33/10 (4.30) – 19.0%

With a measly 19.0% likelihood of scooping the three points at Kassam Stadium on Saturday, how can one possibly favor the visitors? We believe that Oxford United are the expected winners at 4/5 (1.80) and that the 55.0% win probability should be enough for the home team to get a much-needed win. If you are looking for an even safer betting alternative, we’d like to suggest Under 2.5 Goals at 13/20 (1.65)60.61% likelihood.

Oxford United vs Carlisle Lineups & Team News

Oxford United

The U’s began their 2023/24 League One campaign with an unexplainable 2-0 loss against Cambridge United. The game at Abbet Stadium was completely dominated by Oxford, who had a whopping 70.0% possession, but in the end, it amounted to nothing as coach Manning’s boys went home emptyhanded.

Predicted lineup – Beadle (GK), Brown, Thorniley, Moore, Long, McEachran, Brannagan, Browne, Rodrigues, Goordham & Harris

Carlisle

Away from Brunton Park, the Blues aren’t as convincing as the fans would like them to be. Two games on the spin away from home ended with draws. Surely, our Oxford United vs Carlisle predictions have a chance of success if coach Paul Simpson’s boys continue with their lackluster display.

Predicted lineup – Holy (GK), Lavelle, Huntington, Mellish, Back, McCalmont, Guy, Moxon, Armer, Plange & Gibson

Player to Watch: Owen Moxon

Unlike his rival Liam Manning, coach Paul Simpson doesn’t have any injury issues at the center of the park to deal with. The U’s will be deprived of Alex Gorrin’s services, as his knee injury still haunts him.

We have Owen Moxon as the player to watch in our Oxford United vs Carlisle prediction, as the visitors’ box-to-box midfielder was the hero for coach Simpson last week. Owen scored a vital 36th-minute goal to give Carlisle a much-needed point.
