United are 6/4 to defeat fellow promoted side Fleetwood Town on Tuesday night at Glanford Park.Sky Bet, the sponsors of the Football League, have the draw at 23/10 and a Fleetwood win at 7/4.
Fleetwood have made a flying start to the season with two successive victories, a 2-1 win at home to Crewe on the opening weekend and a 1-0 away win at Notts County on Saturday.
Paddy Madden is the favourite with the bookmaker to be the first goalscorer for the Iron. Madden to repeat his performance against Swindon and be the first Scunthorpe United player to find the net is 5/2, however he is 5-1 to be the first goalscorer in the match.
The other Iron player to score this season was Neal Bishop, in the 1-0 Capital One Cup win against Blackburn Rovers, and he is 11-1 to be the first Scunthorpe United goalscorer and 20/1 to be the first goalscorer in the match.
Both of Scunthorpe’s opening two League fixtures have seen four goals in the match. Sky Bet are offering odds of evens for there to be three or more goals and for there to be exactly four goals in the match, as there were in the games against Preston and Swindon, the odds are 4/1.
With neither side recording a draw so far this campaign, Sky Bet have made the draw with both teams to score a very generous 3-1.
When these two sides went head to head in League Two last season, Scunthorpe United came out on top winning the away match at Highbury Stadium 1-0 and drawing 0-0 at Glanford Park. A repeat result of the match at Glanford Park is priced at 9/1 whilst a replica score line of the match played in October last year (a 1-0 Scunthorpe win) is priced at 7/1.
After the signings of Billy Kee (from Burton Albion) and Luke O’Neill (on loan from Burnley), Scunthorpe United look a good price at 6/4 to end Fleetwood’s 100% record this season and earn their first points in this League One Campaign.
