IRON FAVOURITES THIS WEEKEND

6 March 2014

United will go into the Sky Bet League Two clash against Northampton as overwhelming favourites on Saturday, according to the league’s official betting partner.

Russ Wilcox’s men will be looking to get back to winning ways, after two consecutive draws, and his claret and blue side are fancied at 3/4.

Last season’s League Two play-off finalists Northampton are second-bottom of the league, but they come to Glanford Park in good form, on the back of one draw and two wins in their last three games. They are outside favourites at 18/5 to leave Lincolnshire with the win.

Both sides will be desperate to get the full, all-important three points and to escape another draw and the odds of the game finishing level is 5/2.

There are 53 different betting options available on www.SkyBet.com/Scunthorpe, including 14/1 for a 3-1 home win and 11/10 for the fixture to have over 2.5 goals.

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

An Iron win with both teams to score is 3/1 and a treble chance of us to win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2 is 11/2. A 1-1, 2-2 or 3-3 draw is 7/2.

If you think the match may be a 4+ goal thriller, meaning both teams scoring in each half, you can have a bet with odds of 25/1 and the Iron are 11/1 to score four or more goals.

Iron top scorer Sam Winnall, who featured on Monday night’s BBC Late Kick-Off, is favourite to open the scoring at 100/30 and ⅘ to score anytime in 90 minutes. Paul Hayes, who featured with Winnall on the programme’s quiz feature, is 4/1 to score first and evens to score any time in 90 mins.

Paddy Madden will be looking to make it three goals in his last four Iron games and SkyBet rate him with the same odds as Hayes, with them both 25/1 to bag a hat-trick and just 5/1 for a brace.

Alan Connell is joint-favourite to score for the Cobblers, at 7/1 to score first, and their top league scorer, John Marquis also joint-favourite and 12/5 to score any time. A double for Marquis and Winnall to score can be had at 7/1.

In terms of outright betting, Winnall remains the standout favourite to win the league’s top scoring accolade at ⅚. Scott Hogan scored a hat-trick last time out for Rochdale at Oxford on Saturday and he is now 6/5, second favourite.

Chesterfield remain favourites for the title at 11/10 with the Iron now 11/4. Our opponents are 6/5 for relegation out of the Football League.

After Northampton’s visit, Southend will be next up for the Iron. The Shrimpers face a long journey on Tuesday evening to Glanford Park, but they face an away trip to Morecambe first, this Saturday. They will be favourites in Lancashire, at 7/5, with Morecambe 15/8 and a draw 23/10.
