Oxford Utd vs Burton Albion: Top free betting tips

Which of these teams in poor form will prevail? Our Oxford Utd vs Burton Albion prediction is for a home win.  

The Brewers dropped dangerously close to the relegation zone after an awful 6-game winless run in the league (D1 L5). The main issues for Burton right now are in attack with the Brewers scoring a single goal in their last 5 league outings. Oxford remain in the top 6 but they also lost their ways recently. The U’s failed to win any of their last 4 league matches (D2 L2). 

Correct outcome prediction: Oxford to win

The U’s had been dominating this fixture for several years now. They won 5 of their last 6 league games vs Burton. The Brewers can hardly feel confident right now as they lost 4 consecutive league matches. This is why our first Oxford Utd vs Burton Albion prediction is for a home win. 

​​​Clean sheet prediction: Oxford clean sheet

With our second Oxford Utd vs Burton Albion prediction we continue to back the U’s. We think Oxford will keep their fifth consecutive clean sheet at home. This prediction is also backed by the fact that Burton failed to score in 4 of their last 5 league games.

​​​Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Oxford

Combining our first two betting tips we give you our final Oxford Utd vs Burton Albion prediction. We think the U’s win win 2-0. This was the result in 2 of Oxford’s last 4 home matches. Also, 2 of Burton’s 4 defeats in the last 4 rounds were with 0-2 scorelines.
