We are reaching the business end of proceedings in the EFL Trophy and have now reached the quarter final stage. For clubs in Leagues 1 and 2 this is a huge opportunity to make history and provide a wonderful Wembley day out for their fans. An all League 1 clash awaits us as Rotherham host Cambridge United in one of the four quarterfinal ties.
Nine places and seventeen points separate these sides with Rotherham sitting pretty in third place in the League 1 table, with Cambridge sitting in mid-table down in 12th. When it comes to league form both sides have been in good recent form with Cambridge having taken ten points from the last fifteen available with Rotherham taking nine within the same time period. League form goes out the window for cup games and despite Rotherham being heavily favoured in the betting, Cambridge who have performed cup heroics of their own this season will certainly have no fear when it comes to this match and odds of a draw/Cambridge win at 9/5 seems like great value in a cup game that could go either way.
Over 2.5 goals
When it comes to betting the over or under 2.5 goal market, the smart play looks to be on backing the under. Cup games like this between two evenly matched teams can often be cagey affairs and we think this could fit the bill. Cambridge have only seen 2.5 goals exceeded in two of their last five, whilst Rotherham have seen the feat achieved in just two of theirs. When these sides meet the over has happened in three of the last five so there is every chance that this game could go be a nervy or open game. We will go for the former and hope it’s a low scoring affair.
Half time result
In hoping for a low scoring game a good bet to follow this one in, could be for the game to be a draw at halftime. Odds of 7/5 seem reasonable. The last time these two teams met, it was Rotherham who run out as 1-0 winners with the game being 0-0 at half time. We will be hoping for a similar half time scoreline here.
