Colchester vs Leyton Orient – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Leyton Orient have won just one away game in League Two this term ahead of their trip to play Colchester. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Colchester Double Chance

Leyton Orient are determined to launch a playoff push this season, though their form on the road is threatening to scupper their campaign. The O’s have won just once away from home in League Two this term and on Boxing Day they travel to take on a stubborn Colchester outfit that has already avoided defeat in six of their ten home tests since the summer, despite their relegation contender tag. The hosts are available at a great price in the double chance market this week and with Orient’s travel sickness a factor, we’re advising bettors to consider that option.

Both Teams to Score

100% of Colchester’s last six games at the JobServe Community Stadium have produced goals at both ends and the same market could be worth pursuing on Sunday. Leyton Orient have notched in all but two of their last eight assignments while the U’s have failed to score just twice in their last ten attempts on home soil. Expect drama in both boxes again in Essex this weekend.

Over 2.5 Goals

Punters on the hunt for games with high goalscoring potential could also find joy in Essex on Sunday. Five of Colchester’s last six tussles at home produced over 2.5 goals, while five of Orients’ last eight League Two fixtures also saw three or more goals scored. Boxing Day skirmishes are usually exciting affairs, so stick to the over 2.5 totals line here.

Colchester vs Leyton Orient: Match Preview

Colchester Team News

Colchester’s meeting with Hartlepool was postponed at the weekend due to a Covid outbreak in the Pools squad. Miles Welch-Hayes, Gene Kennedy, Frank Nouble and Ryan Clampin were all rated as doubtful for that game, though the U’s will hope to have all four players back in contention on Sunday. Hayden Mullins’ charges are just one poor result from being sucked into the division’s bottom three.

Leyton Orient Team News

Thomas James and Hector Kyprianou are both doubtful again for Orient, while Callum Reilly is a confirmed absentee. Darren Pratley should be available again following suspension. Leyton Orient also had Covid issues to contend with in their 1-0 defeat at Tranmere at the weekend, where they could only name four players on the bench. The picture is still unclear at the club ahead of this weekend's fixture and a postponement is still a possibility..
