Our opening selection for this weekend’s BTTS and win tip features Scunthorpe’s home tie against Bury. Scunny have fallen into a little bit of a slump of late and now find themselves in third place after leading League One for several weeks before. Nevertheless, this run has featured games against many of their rivals at the top of the table and they still boast the most lethal attack in League One and sit in the top five teams in the division for their home record as well. Opponents, Bury got a brief mention in last weekend’s article as I alluded to their awful form which has seen them take two points from their last 15 league games. Although they performed admirably in their 1-3 defeat to Sheffield United, that result went exactly as I expected it and I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a similar outcome this time around against Scunthorpe. Therefore, stick this one down as the first on the coupon.
The second choice for the football tip features two of the most in-form sides in the league as Southend host Sheffield United. After a poor start to the season, I really expected Southend to be in and around the relegation places at present, but Phil Brown’s side have now gone 13 straight games without defeat from mid-October and this has propelled them to just outside the playoff places. However, they face a Sheffield United side that has recently taken their place at the top of the table after a stunning run of form that has seen The Blades win their last five matches on the bounce and only lose once in their last 21 games as well. Although this fixture may well be a lot closer than the league table suggests, the visitors’ away record has been terrific this season and they have yet to taste defeat in their last ten matches on the road. In addition to this, though, Sheffield United also command the highest strike-rate for BTTS results away from home in the whole of League One at 83%, so with this in mind, back them to win this with both teams finding the net.
The anchor leg or our tipsters’ score and win bet on Saturday features another strong side at the top of League One as Bradford take on Chesterfield at Valley Parade. City have lost the least amount games (3) compared any other team in the division this season, the flip side to this is they have also drawn more (12) than anyone else as well. Normally I wouldn’t normally consider a side that is generally so unreliable to land the three points, but they do head into the clash unbeaten at home this campaign and face a Chesterfield side with the third leakiest defence and worst away record in the division. Although the visitors have improved marginally of late, their away form still remains poor and The Spireits have lost their last three matches on the bounce away from home. It’s certainly the riskiest of the three on paper, but Bradford have a habit of conceding sloppy goals this year and they should have more than enough to see off Chesterfield nevertheless.
