The visit of Leyton Orient is a great opportunity to dent the visitor's 100% record and cut into their lead at the top of the table.

With his second goal of the season, Freddie Sears, earned a point against Carlisle last Friday to maintain Colchester’s unbeaten League record.

So far, all four Colchester games have had less than three match goals and on six of the last eight occasions that the U's hosted a top-six team like Leyton Orient, there were less than three goals with three of the matches having just a solitary strike.

Seven of the U's last 10 home games have seen under 2.5 goals and it's the same for Leyton Orient in six of their last 10 on the road.

With both teams having had strong defensive records this season, under 2.5 goals in this game therefore appeals and is currently priced at 8/11.

Other Reasons To Bet:-

• Colchester have been winning at half-time in the last four matches against Leyton Orient
• There have been fewer than three goals in Colchester's last four home matches 
• The U's have won their last three games against Leyton Orient
