​Cambridge vs Leyton Orient: Top free betting tips

Can the U’s start 2024 with a win? Our Cambridge vs Leyton Orient prediction backs the hosts to grab the win. 

The teams enter 2024 sitting in the bottom half of the table and split by just 2 points. Cambridge had a solid December – W3 D1 L1. Also, the U’s rested more with their Friday night game postponed. Leyton kept back-to-back clean sheets to end 2023 but the O’s remain passive on the road.

Total goals prediction: Odd

In 5 of Leyton’s last 6 matches, there were an odd number of total goals scored. This was also the case in 4 of the last 6 H2Hs. That’s why our first Cambridge vs Leyton Orient prediction is for an odd amount of total goals. 

Half with the most goals prediction: Second

Our next Cambridge vs Leyton Orient prediction is that the majority of the goals will be scored after the break. Both teams tend to score their league goals mainly in the second half. Cambridge scored 66.7%, or 14 of 21, of their goals so far after the interval. The O’s also scored 14 of 23 goals, or 60.9%, of their goals in the second half. 

​​​Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Cambridge

Our final Cambridge vs Leyton Orient prediction as is traditional looks at the correct score. We back the U’s to win this match 1-0. Cambridge needed just one goal to claim 2 of their last 4 home wins. Also, 3 of Leyton’s last 5 away defeats were with that 0-1 scoreline.

How far will Leyton’s fans travel to Cambridge?

The driving distance between London’s suburbs Leyton and Cambridge is only 65 miles (105km) and normally it would take around 1 hour and 40 minutes to cover it. 

We advise all away supporters to give themselves at least an extra hour for this trip though as with storm Hank promising to batter Britain over the weekend some road disruptions are possible. 

​Cambridge vs Leyton Orient: Tickets

The price of the tickets for the home fans varies between £19.00 and £25.00 for adults. Leyton Orient supporters have to pay £25.00 for a ticket for this game. Of course, the customary concessions for seniors and youngsters are in place. 

There will be no sale of tickets for away fans on the day of the game. Those supporters of the O’s that have bought tickets online and haven’t collected them can still do so on matchday though. All uncollected tickets will be sent to Cambridge’s Box Office for collection.
