​Shrewsbury vs Cambridge: Top free betting tips

Our Shrewsbury vs Cambridge prediction is for a match dominated by the defensive lines. Can the Shrews build on their away win from last weekend? 

A single point splits the two teams in the standings. Both sides struggle to score goals this season but they defend well at times and this is why they both remain out of trouble. Shrewsbury have a new manager who is about to make his home debut in charge in this match.  

Correct outcome prediction: Draw

Our first Shrewsbury vs Cambridge prediction is that the spoils will be shared in this clash between two pretty evenly matched sides. Historically draws have dominated this fixture. There were 9 draws in the last 19 H2Hs and 5 in the last 9 duels hosted by the Shrews. Also, 2 of Cambridge’s last 3 away matches ended in draws. 

Clean sheet prediction: Cambridge clean sheet

We back the U’s to achieve a shutdown in this match. Cambridge have been defending well lately and they kept clean sheets in 3 of their last 6 league matches. Now they are up against a Shrewsbury team that failed to score in 5 of their last 8 games. This is why our second Shrewsbury vs Cambridge prediction is for an away clean sheet. 

​​Correct score prediction: 0-0 draw

If we believe the game will end in a draw and that the U’s will be able to keep a clean sheet then there is only one way for our final Shrewsbury vs Cambridge prediction to go. We think this match will finish without any goals being scored. 

The U’s saw 3 of their last 4 away draws being 0-0 results. Also, 2 of Shrewsbury’s last 3 draws were 0-0 outcomes, as was 1 of the last 2 H2Hs.
