It is League One football betting action coming up on Tuesday night as Cambridge kick-off as favourites at home.

The U’s are playing host to the current bottom side in the table, Doncaster in this one.

But the head to head makes for some interesting reading as Doncaster have had their fair share of success away at this opponent.

Cambridge Preview – Can the U’s bank the points?

Cambridge are not running in red hot form at the moment in League One, but are favourites for this game.

It has been a pretty poor W3 D6 L4 home record this season for them.

Cambridge have failed to win any of their last four at home, taking two points in that sequence.

Will they have enough to knock over Doncaster?

Two of the four defeats that they have suffered at home this season have come against top-three sides.

In the match outright for Tuesday’s League One betting, Cambridge are the 8/11 odds-on favourites* (odds recorded 20:19 GMT on January 17th, 2022 at Bet365).

The U’s have had their struggles in front of goal recently.

In their last four matches, home and away combined, they have scored just once.

That came on the weekend in a 1-0 away win at Lincoln.

Cambridge have scored an average of 1.1 goals per home game during this League One campaign.

They’ve banked a clean sheet in a third of home fixtures.

Our betting prediction:
Cambridge to win to nil

Bet at Bet365

* (odds recorded 20:19 GMT on January 17th, 2022 at Bet365)


Earlier this season Cambridge earned a point in a 1-1 draw away at Doncaster.

But they have lost three of their last four on home turf against this opponent which makes for very interesting reading.

There is a likelihood that this will be a low-scoring affair again.

Each of Cambridge’s last four league games have ended under the 2.5 goal line.

The under 2.5 goals option is at 10/11 and well worth a look we feel in this one* (odds recorded 20:19 GMT on January 17th, 2022 at Bet365).

While the visiting Doncaster have a poor defensive record, Cambridge aren’t posing a great threat in front of the goal.


Doncaster Preview – Donny’s woes to continue?

Doncaster have slipped to a four-match losing streak in the division.

On the weekend they went down 2-1 at home against Wigan.

It has been seven losses for Doncaster in their last eight league games now.

They shipped at least two goals in all but one of those seven losses as well.

Doncaster’s away record for this league campaign is woeful at D1 L11 from twelve played.

In their dozen road games, Doncaster have produced just six goals in total.

Three of those six goals came in a 4-3 loss at Morecambe in their last away match.

In defence they have conceded at an average of 2.5 goals per away game.

They step into midweek action looking to snap a three-match losing streak of road form.

Doncaster have failed to score in 67% of their away games in the division this season.

So it’s pretty hard to come up with a reason to back them.

They are a quote of 4/1 in the match outright* (odds recorded 20:19 GMT on January 17th, 2022 at Bet365)

The recent record away at Cambridge just isn’t enough at the moment.

Once again they may struggle to produce much of an impact in front of the goal.

Doncaster have lost two-thirds of their away matches in League One this season to nil, which piques interest for football betting.


Cambridge vs Doncaster Betting Advice

Cambridge are not even in great form but they look the obvious pick for this clash on Tuesday night.

There is the straight 8/11 odds-on quote for Cambridge in the match outright* (odds recorded 20:19 GMT on January 17th, 2022 at Bet365).

That’s reasonable enough given the poor form of the visiting Doncaster.


Key Facts – Cambridge vs Doncaster Betting Tip

  • Doncaster’s away record this season is D1 L11
