Football – England – League Two Betting Tips

League Two leaders, Lincoln City, take on Cambridge United as the betting tips continue in Saturday afternoon’s action at Sincil Bank.

It’s been an impressive start to their new fourth tier campaign after the disappointment of losing in the play-off semi-finals to Exeter City at the end of last season, but it seems The Imps are intent on securing automatic promotion this time around as they sit top of League Two with a four point lead over Exeter City and Newport County.

Lincoln have recently posted back-to-back wins against Crewe Alexandra and Port Vale – the latter result being a 6-2 thrashing of Vale at Vale Park last weekend, and I daresay Lincoln will be keen to rack up a third win on the trot on Saturday.

The Imps possess a good home record which stands at  5-0-1 12/5 while overall, the hosts have won 10 of their 13 league matches to date – and are second only to Colchester United in terms of total goals scored. Forwards Akinde (4 goals) and McCartan (3 goals) look the most likely for the hosts.

Cambridge United are currently wallowing in the bottom two of the fourth tier after having lost their last four league matches on the trot with defeats to Newport County, Forest Green Rovers, Crawley Town and MK Dons.

In actual fact, it’s now seven matches without a win for The U’s which includes six defeats, and the visitors will be desperate to lift themselves out of this poor spiralling form before the rot well and truly sets in.

An away record of  1-1-4  5/14 which includes losing their last three on the trot away from home does little to convince me that they’ll be able to stop Lincoln here today, and my betting tips agree.
