IRON EVENS TO BEAT PIRATES

25 February 2014

United will enter Tuesday evening’s League Two clash at home to Bristol Rovers as 1/1 to take all three points.

After the 5-1 thrashing of Portsmouth at Glanford Park on Saturday, the league’s official betting partner, SkyBet, are rating Russ Wilcox’s side as evens to emerge victorious.

John Ward’s men are 13/5 for the win and 5/2 to leave Lincolnshire with a draw.

The visitors make the 204-mile trip on the back of a 2-0 win over Burton Albion on Friday night-a result that helped the Iron as Albion would have been level on points with the Claret and Blue before kick-off against Pompey had they left the Memorial Ground with a win.

There are 53 different betting options available on www.SkyBet.com/Scunthorpe, including 80/1 for a 5-1 repeat of Saturday’s scoreline.

If you register from the link above, the Iron profit from it- for every sign-up, the club gets £10 from SkyBet.

United to be in the lead at half-time and to win at full-time is just 2/1 and if you think Rovers will be leading at the break and we will be winners come full-time, you can get odds of 28/1.

We are 6/1 to win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2 and 5/1 to win by a two-goal margin.

Scunthorpe to win and the match to have over 2.5 goals is 9/4 and Sam Slocombe to get a clean sheet along with an Iron win is 9/4.

The club’s, and league’s, top-scorer, Sam Winnall, who has 17 goals in League Two this season, is favourite to score first at just 7/2. Paul Hayes is 9/2 and Paddy Madden, who scored his first Iron goal on Saturday, is 5/1.

Gary McSheffrey is 20/1 to score within the first ten minutes of the game. Meanwhile, the first Iron goalscorer against Pompey was Dave Syers, who was also our hat-trick hero, and he is 8/1 to score first again and 100/1 to repeat Saturday’s three-goal tally.

John-Joe O'Toole, who scored against Burton for Rovers and has 12 in the league this term, is their favourite to score first at just 7/1, with David Clarkson 15/2.

In outright betting, the Iron are now joint-favourites to win the league, tied at 7/4 with Chesterfield.

Our Tuesday opponents, meanwhile, are 66/1 for promotion.

Winnall is also 1/1 evens to finish as the league’s top scorer. Quite incredible, considering at the start of the season, he was 80/1. Pirates’ midfielder O’Toole is 33/1 for the accolade.

Next up for the Iron is an away trip to Newport County on Saturday, and Justin Edinburgh’s men will host AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday evening. County are favourites to win the tie at 19/20, with the Dons, who Michael Collins is with on-loan, are 14/5. A draw is 5/2.
