Leyton Orient vs Colchester – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Leyton Orient have lost just three of their 13 home matches this season ahead of their meeting with Colchester. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.
Leyton Orient to Win
Leyton Orient have been a tough nut to crack at The Breyer Group Stadium where they have tasted defeat just three times in 13 league fixtures this term and we’re tipping the O’s to make home advantage count again on Saturday. Their opponents, Colchester, have been toppled in seven of their last nine matches on the road and with travel sickness proving hard to shark, we recommend opposing the U’s in the battle of the vowels.
Over 2.5 Goals
Colchester’s away games have been action-packed over the past couple of months, albeit for the wrong reasons as far as they are concerned. Four of Colchester’s last five fixtures on the road have produced over 2.5 goals and the U’s shipped 11 times during the same run of games. Their defensive deficiencies could lead to another incident-packed contest in London on Saturday, so stick to the over 2.5 line.
Both Teams to Score
While our second prediction tips Leyton Orient to enjoy success in the final third against Colchester this weekend, a clean sheet for the hosts seems unlikely. Orient have shut out their visitors to The Breyer Group Stadium just once in their last five attempts and they can never be relied upon to protect keeper Lawrence Vigouroux for 90 minutes. With that considered, we recommend backing both teams to register in the capital this weekend.
Leyton Orient vs Colchester Match Preview: Both teams searching for consistency
Leyton Orient picked up a useful point at Bradford on Tuesday evening (1-1) bringing a close to a taxing run of fixtures that included successive tests against Tranmere, Port Vale, Newport and Mansfield. O’s boss Kenny Jackett will be keen to gather more points from here on in with a more favourable run of games approaching, however, and with new faces to bed in following a busy January, the picture should start to improve soon.
Colchester pushed their unbeaten run to three games in midweek when they drew 1-1 at home to Rochdale, though United are still one of the league’s worst performers on the road. Colchester have lost seven of their last nine matches on the road, though improvement should be expected following a strong showing in the transfer window that included the captures of John Akinde from Gillingham, Myles Kenlock from Ipswich and ex-Tractor Boy Emyr Huws.
