Bookies make Carlisle United odds-on favourites to get a victory in the bag against struggling Scunthorpe.

The Blues are unbeaten at home so far in 2021/22 with Scunny yet to win away.

And bookmakers* are confident that form will continue on both counts - with a win for Chris Beech's Cumbrians against Neil Cox's Iron.

All bookies have United odds-on for three points, with the Cumbrians 3/4 with Bet365 and BetVictor to prevail, and 4/5 with William Hill and Sky Bet.

Scunthorpe are as long as 19/5 with Unibet to end a run without an away win that goes back to March.

They are also 7/2 with Sky Bet and 888 Sport, and 15/4 with Bet 365.

Three of the clubs' last four Brunton Park meetings have ended in a draw - and you can get odds of 5/2 with BetFred and William Hill and 12/5 with Paddy Power for the scores to be level today.

Zach Clough and Lewis Alessandra are 9/2 favourites to get the game's first goal, with Tristan Abrahams 5/1 to open the scoring and Jordan Gibson 11/2 to grab his first Blues goal.

Jake Scrimshaw is the shortest-odds Scunthorpe man to net first at 6/1, while longer shots for the opener include Kelvin Mellor at 30/1 and Rod McDonald at 50/1.

Jon Mellish, meanwhile, is 7/2 to score at any stage in the game and make it three goals in consecutive outings.

A 1-0 Carlisle win is rated the likeliest scoreline by bookies at 5/1, closely followed by a 1-1 draw at 11/2.
