League Two's Colchester meets one of the better Youth Teams in the EFL Trophy – West Ham U21. The hosts will look for the three points as a loss on Tuesday would put them out of the tournament. West Ham, on the other hand, needs the three points to guarantee a spot in the next round of the EFL Trophy.

Draw No Bet – West Ham U21
West Ham's youth formations are among the better in England and produce many talents. Although the U21 team does not compete in any regular leagues (like the U23 team for example) they have the tendency to play strong in the EFL Trophy each year. Last year, for instance, they won all three matches in the group stage, including against Colchester. This season, they won their first match against Ipswich, a team from League One. Colchester, as a team, is not in great form at the moment and West Ham U21 has every chance to grab the three points once again. In case of a Draw, our bets will be void.
Correct Score Group Betting – West Ham U21 to win 1-0, 2-0, or 2-1
A tip for anyone looking for high odds, we expect that if West Ham wins, there will not be more than three goals in the match. The team won by 0:1 in last season's edition of this match and Colchester is practically the same team which played 12 months ago. They still have problems in scoring goals and most of their matches end with under 2.5 goals. Although the bookies expect a high-scoring game, we do not see more than 2 goals from West Ham or more than 1 from Colchester.
Last Team to Score – West Ham U21
Last but not least, we expect West Ham to be the last team to score in the match. Since we already expressed our worries that Colchester may not even score on Tuesday and the high chance that West Ham could take the three points, this is another alternative if you prefer lower odds.
