​Carlisle vs Oxford: Top free betting tips

Our Carlisle vs Oxford prediction is for another very tight game in Cumbria with not many goals scored. Will the U’s find a way to steal 3 points?

The Cumbrians remain in the relegation zone and are in desperate need of points. Oxford on the other hand are still in the top 6 despite a series of defeats in the last 5 weeks. The U’s lost 3 of their last 4 away matches but they have gotten the better of Carlisle in their recent meetings. 

Total goals prediction: Odd

All of Oxford’s last 5 league games had an odd number of total goals in them. There were also an odd amount of goals in 5 of the last 7 H2Hs, including the first league meeting between the teams this season. This is why our first Carlisle vs Oxford prediction is for an odd number of total goals. 

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals

Our next Carlisle vs Oxford prediction stays in the Goals Market. We don’t think there will be more than 2 total goals scored in this match. Only 3 of Carlisle’s last 17 home games went over 2.5 goals. Also, none of the last 3 H2Hs had more than 2 goals in them.

​​Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Oxford

With our final Carlisle vs Oxford prediction, we once again guess the correct score. We think Oxford have a good chance of edging this match 1-0. This was the exact scoreline in 2 of Oxford’s last 4 wins vs Carlisle, including back in August. 

Also, all of Carlisle’s last 3 home league defeats had been with that same 0-1 scoreline.
