Despite having two points snatched before our eyes at the Globe Arena on Good Friday, the Iron are 8/11 for the three points- a win which would seal promotion, providing Fleetwood and Burton dropped points.

Russ Wilcox’s men have drawn six of the last ten matches-points gained over our rivals, rather than dropped- and a draw with the U’s is 12/5.

The visitors visit Glanford Park having won two of their last ten fixtures and Oxford are 7/2 to leave Lincolnshire with the all three points.

A half-time draw and full-time home win is 7/2 and the Iron to be leading at half-time and drawing at the full-time whistle is 18/1.

A 3-1 scoreline may tempt you at 16/1, 2-1 is 15/2 and we are 6/1 to win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2 and the game is 11/10 to have a goal tally totalling more than 2.5.

You can bet on the Iron to win in both halves at 7/2 and for them to score in both halves at 21/10 and a clean sheet for Sam Slocombe and his team-mates is 11/10.

Sam Winnall is the front-runner to score first, at 3/1, 8/11 anytime and 7/2 for a brace and Paddy Madden and Deon Burton are 11/8 anytime and Paul Hayes is 6/1 to score last.

Our goal scoring midfielder Dave Syers is 11/4 anytime and our four goal defender, Niall Canavan, who scored against Northampton last month, is 20/1 to score last and 6/1 anytime.

James Constable is the U’s leading goal scorer with 11 goals and he is second favourite for the visitors’ scoring bets, at 5/2 anytime. David Connolly is 13/2 favourite to score first and Dave Kitson is 11/4 to bag anytime.

Dean Smalley has nine goals and Fulham loanee Ryan Williams has six goals and they are 8/1 and 16/1 to score first and 11/4 and 11/2 anytime respectively.

In terms of outright betting, we are still the most fancied to go up as champions, at ½, with Chesterfield now second favourites at 7/2 and Rochdale 9/2. 

We are 1/100 for promotion and form-side York are 5/1 to win the play-offs. Fleetwood and Burton are hot on the heels of the top three and they are 5/2 and 11/4 respectively to go up via the play-offs.

Survival for Torquay is now a tough ask, with them eight points adrift at the foot of the table with nine points to play for. They are a massive 1/500 for relegation from the Football League and the next three teams at the bottom of the table are Northampton, Bristol Rovers and Wycombe and they are 15/8, 9/4 and 15/8 respectively to be the other side to drop to the conference.

The race for the league’s golden boot is a three-horse race, with the Iron’s leading scorer, Sam Winnall, favourite for the accolade. Winnall scored his 23rd league goal of the season at Morecambe on Good Friday and he is 1/66 to finish with the highest tally, a massive change from the 80/1 odds he was given at the start of the season.

Scott Hogan is the second-favourite, he has 19 goals in the league with Rochdale this year, at 25/1 and Reuben Reid is Plymouth’s forward on-loan from Yeovil Town with 20 league goals and he is 40/1.

Elsewhere, Chesterfield will travel to Dagenham at evens for the win, Rochdale face an away trip to Bristol Rovers, fancied at 5/4.

Fleetwood host Wycombe as 8/11 favourites and Burton will travel to Wales to face Newport at 5/4.
The play-off section’s form team York City will host Bury, who have faint hopes of a place in the top six, and Plymouth will host Wimbledon.

At the bottom of the table, Torquay will travel to nearby Exeter, Northampton and Hartlepool will welcome Portsmouth and Morecambe respectively.
