Carlisle United are firm outsiders with the bookies* to end Exeter City's formidable unbeaten run this afternoon.

The Blues' hosts have not lost in 19 games in all competitions.

And Matt Taylor's Grecians, yet to lose at home in 2021/22, are odds-on to chalk up their latest victory.

They are priced at a miserly 3/4 to beat United with Bet 365, 888Sport and Betfred.

By contrast, Keith Millen's Cumbrians - who are winless in 10 games in the league - are as long as 7/2 to prevail at St James' Park this afternoon.

Those odds are offered by Bet365, Betfair and Unibet, while a Blues win is 17/5 with William Hill and 100/30 with Sky Bet.

The draw is 5/2 with Paddy Power and 13/5 with Bet Victor.

Carlisle are bidding to get back on the goal trail having scored in just one of their last eight league games.

Another Blues blank is 6/4, while a one-goal United return in Devon is similarly priced. A two-goal haul is 4/1 and a three-goal Blues blitz 14/1.

Sam Nombe and Matt Jay are both 4/1 to get the first goal for Exeter today. Jay already has 13 to his name this season.

Zach Clough is the shortest-priced first scorer in the United camp at 15/2, with Brad Young 8/1. Tristan Abrahams is also 8/1 to find the net first against his former club.

Other first goal odds include Sam Fishburn at 11/1, another ex-Grecian in Brennan Dickenson at 12/1, Jon Mellish at 12/1 and Rod McDonald - who was millimetres away from the winner against Barrow last weekend - a more distant 50/1.
