​​Charlton vs Cambridge United: Top free betting tips

Can the U’s bulk a trend and improve their away form? Our Charlton vs Cambridge United prediction is for a decisive home win. 

The Addick now moved up to 10th in the standings after going unbeaten in the last 4 rounds (W2 D2). At home, Charlton won 5 of their last 7 league games (D1 L1). Cambridge sit 18th and only just above the relegation zone. The U’s earned just 2 points from their last 8 away league games and they struggle when on the road. 

​​Half with most goals prediction: Second

Our first Charlton vs Cambridge United prediction is that the majority of the goals will be scored in the second half of the match. Both teams tend to score mainly after the interval.

Charlton have scored 73.3%, or 22 out of 30, of their league goals in the second half. Cambridge also scored most of their goals after the break – 68.6% or 11 out of 14 league goals.

​​Goalscorer anytime prediction : Alfie May

Charlton’s main striker Alfie May has scored 14 league goals in just 17 appearances so far. May scored in 6 of the last 7 home matches too. He has now scored in 60% of all home games this season. This is why with our second Charlton vs Cambridge United prediction we back him to find the back of the net again now. 

​​Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Charlton

The final Charlton vs Cambridge United prediction backs the hosts to win 2-0. Charlton won 2 of the only 4 previous H2Hs with that scoreline. The Addicks also scored exactly 2 goals in 3 of those 4 H2Hs. Cambridge are very poor travellers, they failed to win any of their last 8 away league games (D2 L6).

We strongly recommend to the away supporters to consider the very convenient train journeys available. With over 100 trains connecting Cambridge and London this is likely to prove the safest and fastest way to travel.
