Bradford to Win

Bradford’s key advantage in this match will be their solid defense at home. When playing at Valley Parade, the hosts concede very few goals – 19, compared to the 32 they’ve allowed when on the road. This, paired with Scunthorpe’s weak form away from home, should be enough to get Bradford the 3 points.


Only 36% of Scunthorpe’s matches have resulted in a both teams scoring scenario, which is enough to put us off this bet and go the other way. The visitors have managed 19 goals in 22 games away from home, which averages 0.83 goals per game. However, as we previously mentioned Bradford’s defense at home has proven rather solid.

Over 2.5 Goals

Historically this match-up tends to produce quite a few goals. The last 10 meetings between the squads have resulted in 26 goals scored, with only a single game finishing without a goal. What also leads us in the direction of this bet is the fact that Scunthorpe is having a bad stroke and has recorded 5 consecutive losses, conceding 2 or more goals regularly.

Playing out the rest of the season

The hosts are a mid-table side that is out of the battle for the promotion play-off spots. It's safe to say that with just two games remaining, Bradford has nothing to play for. On the other hand, Scunthorpe may face a ridiculous scenario in which they get relegated instead of Southend.

In order to secure its League Two spot, The Iron needs to acquire just a single point more. Bradford will be a tough opponent, but Scunthorpe shouldn’t be too alarmed as Southend’s chance of taking their place requires an incredible amount of miracles to happen. We’ve covered that in one of our other League Two betting articles, which you can find here.
