All the odds as Hatters visit Cambridge

An excellent weekend saw Luton Town collect four points inside four days with a 1-0 defeat of Cheltenham Town followed by an share of the spoils away at York.

he Minstermen have lost just one game all season, 2-0 to top of the table Burton, and have been beaten just once in their last 25 games at home in League Two; so taking a point away from Bootham Crescent was no mean feat.

Luton are now just three points off a play-off spot and John Still’s men cut to 11/2 from 6/1 to complete back-to-back promotions and 25/1 (from 33s) for the title.

The league remains as competitive, and as wide open, as ever however with Bury, Shrewsbury and Portsmouth all winning midweek whilst top of the table Burton were eased to 9/2 (from 3/1) to finish top of the table after a 3-0 defeat away at AFC Wimbledon.

In a division where defences usually crumble, Hatters’ boss John Still can take great solace in his side have kept consecutive clean sheets for the first time this season.

That staunch rearguard can propel Town to victory when travelling to Cambridge at the weekend, renewing last year’s rivalry from the Conference Premier.

The Abbey Stadium proved something of a fortress in the first half of last season and with home advantage BetVictor make The U’s 6/4 favourites, Luton 15/8 and the draw 12/5.

It appears a fortress no more however, with Cambridge losing two of their last three on home soil and unable to keep a clean sheet since the opening day of the season, Luton are taken to just edge it.

The Hatters are 23/10 to keep a third straight clean sheet and 4/1 with BetVictor to win to nil.

Luton edged out Cheltenham by the solitary goal last weekend and are 17/2 to win by the 1-0 correct score once more and 40/1 to do so with Mark Cullen netting the winner.
