SKY BET: Weekend betting preview

24 October 2014

Sky Bet preview ahead of the visit of Oxford United

Our official betting partner, Sky Bet, have sent us their betting preview ahead of the visit of Stevenage on Saturday.

Oxford look to build on back-to-back wins when they travel to Carlisle on Saturday. 

The U’s are 13/8 with Sky Bet to claim victory in Cumbria, with the hosts quoted at the same price to notch three points. 

The draw can be backed at 23/10. Oxford’s star striker Danny Hylton struck twice in the 3-1 win at Northampton in midweek and he’s the 5/1 favourite to score first in this match. 

Carlisle trio Steven Rigg, Derek Asamoah and Kyle Dempsey are all priced up at 6/1 to open the scoring. 

The Cumbrians lost 4-3 at home to Burton on Tuesday night and there have been plenty of goals at Brunton Park this season. 

A 4-4 draw against AFC Wimbledon is also remembered from earlier in the campaign so 14/1 on six or more goals to be scored might just be interesting.

Top tip: Six or more goals to be scored at 14/1.
