Leyton Orient vs Northampton: Top free betting tips

Leyton Orient are set to face Northampton in League One on Tuesday night with both teams languishing in midtable with just three months of the season to go. A late run to the playoffs would need to start now which makes this a fascinating fixture to look forward to. Our Leyton Orient vs Northampton prediction is for an attacking and entertaining match with the home side coming out on top.

Match result prediction: Leyton Orient to win 

Out of the two teams involved, Leyton Orient are the most likely to make a late push for the League One playoffs. They are four points ahead of Northampton and seven points adrift of the final playoff place in the division. Prior to their loss to Barnsley at the weekend, the O's had enjoyed an impressive eight-match unbeaten run and while Northampton are currently in the midst of a three-match winless run. The momentum is with Leyton Orient and at home, that could be the decisive factor.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals

Neither of these two sides are known for being involved in high-scoring matches with both managers preferring their respective teams to have more control. As a result, this one could turn into a cat-and-mouse type match where both teams are waiting for the other to go for it before releasing their own shackles. Four out of Northampton's last six matches have covered this market while the same can be said for six of Leyton Orient's last nine.

​​​​Correct score prediction: Leyton Orient 2-0 Northampton

Five matches ago, Northampton were looking like a team that could push for the playoff this season but after enjoying just one win in their last five fixtures, those hopes are all but gone. The opposite can be said for Leyton Orient and momentum at this time of the season is everything.
