IRON EDGE SHRIMPERS IN BETTING

11 March 2014

Scunthorpe United will go into Tuesday evening’s League Two fixture as favourites, according to the league’s official betting partner, SkyBet.

Russ Wilcox’s men are 11/10 to win the Glanford Park clash. After eight draws in the last ten fixtures, SkyBet have priced a draw at 11/5.

The Shrimpers, who have former-Hull City manager Phil Brown in-charge, are seventh-placed in the league and 13/5 to leave Lincolnshire with three points. It would make them just the third team to leave Scunthorpe with a win this season.

There are 53 different betting options available on www.SkyBet.com/Scunthorpe, including 16/1 for a 3-1 scoreline and 15/8 for 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1. A Scunthorpe victory with a cleansheet for Sam Slocombe, is 5/2.

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

The Iron have scored and conceded in their last six games, the last we didn’t was the 0-0 draw at Hartlepool at the beginning of February and betting for both teams to score is ⅚.
Scunthorpe to win and both teams to score is 7/2 and Southend to win with both teams scoring is 6/1.

A draw with under 2.5 goals is valued at 5/2 and the Iron to be losing at half-time and to win at full-time is 28/1.

Betting on a double chance Scunthorpe win or draw will provide you with odds of ¼.

Our top scorer Sam Winnall is the favourite to score first at 7/2, 9/2 for a brace and 25/1 for his first Scunthorpe hat-trick. If you think he may score anytime in 90 minutes, he is valued at 10/11.

Paul Hayes is the next most-fancied to open the scoring, valued at 9/2, January signing Paddy Madden is 5/1.

Niall Canavan, who scored his fourth goal of the campaign against Northampton on Saturday, is 20/1 to score first and 6/1 any time. Dave Syers, who has enjoyed a rich vein of form lately, with four goals in his last four appearances, is 12/5 to score anytime.

The Shrimpers’ top scorer, Kevan Hurst, who has 11 goals this season, is 9/1 to score first and 3/1 to score anytime. The favourite visiting player, however, is Lee Barnard. The Southampton loanee is yet to score this season in seven appearances and he has a history of finding the net with previous clubs, so Russ Wilcox’s men will know of his capabilities. He is 15/2 to score first or last and 5/2 anytime. Freddy Eastwood is 11/4 for a goal anytime in 90 minutes.

Meanwhile, in outright betting, Chesterfield are still the front-runners for the title at 13/8. They dropped points at Accrington on Saturday and the Iron could have gone top with a win against Northampton. Rochdale are now level on points with the Claret and Blue and both are valued at 9/4 for the SkyBet League Two title. The Shrimpers are just 7/1 for promotion.

Winnall is 5/2 to win the league’s golden boot top scoring award with Scott Hogan of Rochdale 9/4 and Dagenham’s Rhys Murphy is 16/1.

Had you been lucky enough to bet on Winnall at the start of the campaign, you would have got 80/1 odds for him to finish with the division’s highest tally. He is currently on 18, one in front of Hogan.

Next up for the Iron, after Southend, is a long journey south to Home Park, Plymouth. They travel to Wycombe on Tuesday as underdogs at 19/10 for a win. Wycombe are 6/4 to beat John Sheridan’s side and a draw is 21/10.
