IRON 6/4 AT CHELTENHAM

25 March 2014

The Iron will travel to the Abbey Business Stadium as favourites on Tuesday evening, as we play play-off chasing Cheltenham Town.

Russ Wilcox’s men will be looking to add to Saturday’s 1-0 win over Burton with a similar result against the Robins, extending the unbeaten run which currently stands at a staggering 22 matches.

The record-breaking run and a promotion-chasing campaign sees us valued at 6/4 for three points.

The Iron have drawn six of the last ten fixtures and the league’s official betting partner, SkyBet, puts another draw at odds of 9/4

Cheltenham, meanwhile, have won one in their last five and after going 4-3 down at AFC Wimbledon on Saturday, they are valued at 9/5 for a win which would see them four points off a play-off place, if results went their way. 

There are different betting options available on www.SkyBet.com/Scunthorpe, including the Iron to repeat the return fixture’s result, 2-0 in October, at 10/1 . The win put the Iron into the top seven with thanks to goals from Etienne Esajas and Sam Winnall.

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

Both teams to score and an Iron win is 4/1 and the Iron to win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2 is valued at 9/1.

Winnall is the favourite to open the scoring on Tuesday at 4/1, evens to score anytime and 25/1 for a hat-trick.

Paddy Madden fired a stunning strike to give us the win at Burton on Saturday and he is 11/2 to score first, 6/4 anytime and 9/1 for a brace.

Paul Hayes is 7/4 anytime and ten-goal midfield man Dave Syers is 3/1 to bag anytime and 100/1 to repeat his treble against Portsmouth.

Cheltenham were nervously looking at relegation last time around, but they are now more confidently looking up, rather than down.

Byron Harrison is their leading goalscorer this season with 13 and he is second favourite to score first for Cheltenham at 11/2 and 9/1 to score a brace at the Abbey Business Stadium.

Veteran Jamie Cureton has eight goals this term and he is Cheltenham’s favourite, with odds of 11/8 to score anytime and 5/1 to score the game’s last goal.

In terms of outright betting, we have a new favourite to win the League Two title.

Rochdale have shifted Chesterfield from the league’s summit and they are now 5/4 to win the league outright with the Iron second-favourite at 6/4 and Paul Cook’s Spireites, who drew with local rivals Mansfield, 3/1.

Cheltenham can be bet on for promotion at 50/1.

19-goal Winnall is still the league’s leading scorer and he is still the favourite for the golden boot. Whilst he missed out on the division’s Player of the Year award at the Football League awards, he is still the 1/7 favourite and Reuben Reid is 15/2, Scott Hogan 9/1 and Rhys Murphy 20/1.

Our Saturday opponents, Wycombe Wanderers, travel to Burton on Tuesday evening and they are 3/1 for a win, with Burton favourites at 10/11. A draw is 5/2.
