IRON 3/4 FAVOURITES TO PROGRESS

17 December 2014

United are 3/4 favourites to make it through to the Third Round of the FA Cup, when they face Worcester City in a replay on Wednesday night.

Supporters can bet now by visiting skybet.com/scunthorpe.

The televised cup match comes as a result of the 1-1 draw between the sides at Glanford Park, and the non-league side are 7/2 to cause an upset.

Sky Bet, the sponsors of the Football League, have priced a draw at 11/4 for the game at Aggborough.

A safer market is for either side to qualify, which means your bet will still be active if the game ends in a draw after 90 minutes. They have Scunthorpe at 4/11 and Worcester at 2/1, which compensates for the possibility of extra time and penalties, hence the reduced odds.

Both sides go into the game in good form, with the Iron on a six match unbeaten run and the home side on a 14 match unbeaten run.

A repeat score of the first fixture between the two is priced at 11/2, whilst a Scunthorpe 2-1 win is 7/1.

Paddy Madden enters the fixture in a good vain of goalscoring form, with four goals in his last four games. He opened the scoring in the last fixture and is 4/1 to do the same this time around. He is also EVENS to find the net anytime and 25/1 to net a hat trick.

Miguel Llera’s free kick created Madden’s goal in the tie at Glanford Park and the central defender scored in this weekend’s 2-1 over Crewe Alexandra. Llera is 12/1 to score first and 9/2 to score at any time during the 90 minutes.

The popular Both Teams To Score market sees this fixture at 8/11 for both sides to find the back of the net, whilst it is EVENS for a side to keep a clean sheet.

If you feel that one side may keep a clean sheet the Win To Nil market sees much better value and sees the away side priced at 21/10 whilst Worcester are 15/2 to win the game whilst keeping a clean sheet.

Sky Bet are offering a match special on the game, with which team will kick off. They have Worcester at 4/5 and the Iron at EVENS to get the match underway. 

With two in form sides going head to head this Wednesday night, live on BT Sport, a competitive game should be in store with a 3rd round place against either Chesterfield or MK Dons the prize for the winner.
