The league’s official betting sponsor SkyBet are backing the Iron to beat York City at Glanford Park on Saturday.

The win could well see Russ Wilcox’s side lift the League Two title-winning trophy and it would mean Wilcox would have lost just 1 of his 30 games as manager.

SkyBet are backing the Claret and Blue at 17/20, with a draw 9/4.

York will travel to North Lincolnshire in good form under Nigel Worthington, who steered them from relegation last year before setting them on an incredible run in the second half of this campaign to see them storm into a place in the play-offs, which is now secured.

They are 16/5 to spoil our promotion party with a victory and it would be their fourth win on the bounce.

A 3-1 scoreline is 16/1, with a 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2 Iron win 6/1 and a 1-1, 2-2 or 3-3 draw 7/2.

A double chance Scunthorpe or draw bet is ⅕ and both teams to score is valued at 10/11.

A half-time home lead and full-time draw is 18/1 and a home clean sheet for Sam Slocombe and his defence is 5/4 and if you think the game will be a six-goal thriller or more, you can have odds of 16/1 with SkyBet.

Goalscorer betting has Sam Winnall as the Iron’s favourite, at 7/2 to score first, 10/11 anytime and 9/2 for a brace. Deon Burton and Paddy Madden are third and second favourites respectively at 6/4 and 11/8 anytime, with Paul Hayes 6/1 to score last.

Dave Syers has scored ten times for us this season and he is 7/2 to score anytime, with David Mirfin and Niall Canavan both 6/1 to score at any point throughout the 90 minutes.

Wes Fletcher is the Minstermen’s top scorer with 13 goals despite being out since 22 March with a season-ending injury and Ryan Jarvis has the second-highest tally for the club, with nine goals.

Jarvis is the visitors’ joint-favourite to score at Glanford Park, tied at 11/4 with Ryan Bowman and Michael Coulson is the next most likely for the Minstermen, with odds of 8/1 to bag first and 3/1 anytime.

Elsewhere in outright betting, Chesterfield are the favourites for the title at 4/7 with the Iron at a tempting 4/1 to be lifting the prestigious League Two winner’s trophy, with Keith Hill’s Dale 3/1.

Russ Wilcox’s men are one point behind the top two and Rochdale will visit Newport this weekend, whilst the Spireites host Fleetwood.

With the play-off contenders confirmed, the title and relegation is all that is yet to be sealed.

With Torquay already relegated to the Conference Premier, there is one space left to join them and the three teams battling to avoid the drop are Bristol Rovers, Northampton and Wycombe.

Wycombe are currently in the final relegation spot and they are ⅙ to go down on Saturday, when they visit already-relegated Torquay. Their rivals Northampton will host Oxford and Bristol Rovers have a home clash with Mansfield.

Sam Winnall is six goals clear at the top of the goalscoring charts, with Scott Hogan second with 17 goals. SkyBet have stopped taking bets with just one game remaining.

Considering Winnall was 80/1 to finish with the league’s highest tally at the start of the season, Iron fans and anyone else who may have backed him will be in for a good payout.
