Alessandra 9/1 For First Goal At Cambridge

14 March 2017

We review the best of the odds ahead of the first day at Cheltenham and Pools' trip to Cambridge United.

.Sky BetThe bookies have installed Cambridge United as big 4/6 favourites for the three points on Tuesday night, with Pools out at a massive 4/1 and the draw priced at 14/5 with our friends at

Of course, Dave Jones’ men have to end their away day hoodoo at some stage – and if you fancy that could be tonight then why not try and sting the bookies at the same time?

Pools picked up a point at The Abbey Stadium last season but were unlucky not to get all three as the hosts equalised late on – if you want to back a 1-0 win it’s up for grabs at 12/1, while a 1-1 draw is good value at 11/2.

With Sky Bet not fancying Pools’ chances, it could be worth having a look at the odds on other winning scores – 2-1 is out at 14/1, while you can get a mighty 28/1 on a 2-0 triumph.

Padraig Amond is rated 6/1 for the evening’s first goal, Nathan Thomas looks tempting at 17/2 to notch first and in-form Lewis Alessandra is one to watch at odds of 9/1 to open the scoring.

Meanwhile, the Cheltenham Festival is ready to go and we’ve picked out a few Pools-style tips for you to get your teeth in to…

Magnay Cartor (150/1 in the 1.30pm)
Ok, it’s not quite Magnay – but it’s close enough. And the odds are pretty eye-catching!

Forest Bihan (20/1 in the 2.10)
Ok, it’s not quite Behan – but, well, you know the rest!

Rons Dream (50/1 in the 4.10)
A touch of Ronnie Moore magic could help us claim a reward from the 4.10.
