​Cheltenham vs Carlisle: Top free betting tips

Which of these struggling teams will boost their survival chances? Our Cheltenham vs Carlisle prediction is for a cagey match with few scoring chances. 

This is a clash between two teams next to each other in the standings right at the bottom of the table. Both Cheltenham and Carlisle are inside the relegation zone right now but the hosts are in a much better mood as their recent form has been better (W3 D1 L2). At the same time, the Cumbrians are the worst away team in the league (W1 D3 L10). 

Total goals prediction: Odd

In 4 of Cheltenham’s last 6 matches, there were an odd number of total goals scored. Carlisle also saw 3 of their last 4 games produce an odd amount of goals. This is why our first Cheltenham vs Carlisle prediction is for an odd number of goals to be scored again. 

​​​Correct outcome prediction: Cheltenham to win

Our next Cheltenham vs Carlisle prediction backs the Robins to claim the win in this massive 6-pointer. Cheltenham come into this match in solid recent home form (W3 D1 L1). Also, the Robins are near-perfect in the last 5 H2Hs – W4 D1. 

Carlisle are notoriously poor on the road this season. The Cumbrians have earned a single point from their last 9 away matches (D1 L8). 

​​​Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Cheltenham

Our final Cheltenham vs Carlisle prediction is as expected our attempt to pick the correct score. We back Cheltenham to win this match 1-0. This was the exact scoreline in 2 of Cheltenham’s last 5 home wins. 

Also, Cheltenham secured 1-0 wins in 2 of their last 3 matches vs Carlisle. This included their 1-0 win vs the Cumbrians in the reversed fixture less than a month ago. 

​​How far will Carlisle’s fans travel to Cheltenham?

The driving distance between Carlisle and Cheltenham is 237 miles (381km). To add to that getting in and out of the Lake District is a notoriously slow process Carlisle’s fans should be prepared to travel for at least 4 hours and 30 minutes.

Considering the challenging weather forecast this could become an epic trip and we advise all visiting supporters to take plenty of snacks with them in cars and coaches. 

​Cheltenham vs Carlisle: Tickets

The price of the tickets varies between £23.00 and £26.00 for seated tickets for adults. The cheapest tickets are for the terraces, those are standing tickets and they are all priced at £18.00 each both for home and away fans. 

Important note is that Cheltenham offer a ‘kids-for-a-quid’ entry for this match. This is for all kids under the age of 14, who will have to be accompanied by an adult though. The promotion is valid for Carlisle’s fans too.
