Lincoln City - Oxford United predictions and free betting tips [31/10/2023]
On 31 October in League 1, the third-tier division of England, Oxford United will clash with Lincoln at the LNER stadium. Let's review the teams' current form and attempt to make a decision that could lead to a boost in our bankroll.
The 'Imps' are steadily sailing between divisions. Last year, the lads displayed average results ending at the 11th spot. However, they've been known for their knack to end matches in draws as 20 out of 46 matches resulted in a stalemate.
In the 9th round they were defeated by Peterborough (0:2). After that, they lost with a minimal score to Burton. In their next match, they managed to bag 3 points, beating Fleetwood in an away game (1:0). They then won against Charlton (3:1). And in the last round, the team drew with Exeter City (1:1).
In the old days, the team was pretty decent, but then faced a decline and only in the early 21st century did they return to League 2. After 8 seasons they were promoted and are now having yet another season in League 1. In reality, their performances in the third division are quite good. Almost every year, Oxford finishes in the middle of the table or above, even landing the 3rd spot. Last season, they managed to avoid relegation finishing at 19th.
Now the team is at the 2nd place in the league table. In the 9th round, they secured a victory against Shrewsbury (3:0). In the following game, they managed to beat Bristol Rovers (2:1). Then the squad had a tie with Blackpool (1:1). After that, they were defeated by Wigan (0:2). And in the last round, they drew with Wycombe (2:2).
The last face-off between Lincoln and Oxford was on 4 March 2023. That encounter ended with Lincoln's victory, scoring 1:0.
Lincoln suffered a loss only once in 6 home games this season. Therefore, in my opinion, in the upcoming match they will be able to resist Oxford, who is second in the standings. I believe the winner will likely not be decided, therefore, the suggested bet is on the outcome of a draw.
