Cambridge booked their place in the FA Cup fourth round with a big shock victory away to Newcastle thanks to a Joe Ironside goal. The club have been FA Cup quarter-finalists on two occasions but not since the 1990-91 season. United have lost just one of their last four home matches in this competition.
In the league, the U’s sit 13th place in League One and are winless in their last two and won just three of their last eight. Each of their last three and seven of their last eight have gone under 2.5 goals. At home, they are unbeaten in their last four winning three of these games.
Luton booked their place in this round with a comfortable 4-0 defeat of League Two side Harrogate. The club are former finalists in this competition although this was way back in 1959. The Befordshire outfit have struggled in recent years to progress past the opening rounds.
In the league, Town are in good form with 17 points taken from the last 24 on offer which is just one defeat in eight. They sit ninth in the table and will believe that they can make the end of season play-offs. Their success is built on a strong defence keeping clean sheets in three of their last five.
Cambridge vs Luton: Match Stats
Under 2.5 goals looks the best bet here as this happened in each of the last four and nine of the last 11 for Cambridge. It has also occured in four of the last five for Luton and six of seven when just looking at away games. It is a surprise to see the price as it is so take advantage of it.
Luton to keep a clean sheet is also a bet that looks interesting given they have done this in each of their last two league games. Their opponents meanwhile have netted just three times in their last four. This could be a tight low-scoring encounter so take the visitors to come out with a clean sheet.
