IRON FAVOURITES AT NEWPORT

28 February 2014

The Iron will travel to South Wales as favourites on Saturday, according to the league’s official sponsor, SkyBet.

Despite conceding late against Bristol Rovers on Tuesday evening, Russ Wilcox remains unbeaten as Scunthorpe United boss and his side are 13/10 to snatch another three points.

A draw can get you odds of 11/5 and County, who play at Rodney Parade, are fancied at 9/5, following a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday.

There are 53 different betting options available on www.SkyBet.com/Scunthorpe, including the Iron to win with both teams to score at 7/2 or 10/1 for a 2-0 away victory.

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

United are 3/1 to win with a clean sheet and 8/1 to win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2. Both teams to score in both halves is tempting at 18/1 whilst the Iron to score in the opening ten minutes of the fixture is 13/2.

The club’s, and league’s, top-scorer, Sam Winnall, who has 18 goals in League Two this season, is favourite to score first at just 4/1, closely followed by Paddy Madden at 5/1.

Our hat-trick hero against Portsmouth, Dave Syers, is 3/1 to score anytime and David Mirfin, who scored a late winner at Accrington on Valentine’s evening, is 7/1 to bag anytime in 90 minutes.

The Exiles’ leading league scorer, Chris Zebroski, who has seven goals this season, is 7/1 to score first and you can get a double with Zebroski and Winnall to score anytime at 13/2.

In outright betting, the Iron are now back to second favourites to win the league, following Tuesday’s draw. Chesterfield are 5/4 favourites, with the Claret and Blue 2/1.

Our Saturday opponents, meanwhile, are 9/1 for promotion.

Winnall is also top of the odds to finish as the league’s top scorer, now 10/11. That’s a big difference from the start of the season, when he was 80/1. County’s Zebroski is currently 100/1.

Next up for the Iron after the long trip to Wales is another home fixture. Northampton Town are the visitors and they face Bristol Rovers at Sixfields Stadium. They edge betting odds, at 7/5 for a home win and 9/5 for the Pirates to claim a victory. A draw can be had at 2/1.
