Match Betting – Draw

It is very hard to have teams motivated for their last game when nothing is at stake. Both Scunthorpe and Stevenage are coming off disappointing campaigns and we can’t see them playing hard in this one. Scunthorpe hasn’t won a game in ages (9 straight without a victory) and Stevenage has just 1 win over their last 6 competitive matches.

Over/Under Total Goals – Under 2.5

We are playing the odds here. The value that we get isn’t enormous, but it is decent enough for such a game. Our prediction for the outcome is a draw that we think would be either 0-0 or 1-1. Stevenage has only 5 goals in their last 5 games and with Scunthorpe, it’s even worse – 2 goals in 5 matches.

Result After 30 mins – Draw

Low odds here but a very likely outcome. The game starts at 15:00 with heavy rain in the forecast. Add the increased humidity to this and we predict some very slow first 30 minutes of the match.

Scunthorpe vs Stevenage betting Preview

If we look at the form of the teams, we see nothing good. They are ranked 21st (Stevenage) and dead last – 24th (Scunthorpe) in form. Between the two clubs, there is only one victory in the last 5 games. That’s 9 matches without a win combined.

The only bright spot for Scunthorpe is Abobaker Eisa who has 9 goals for the season accounting for nearly 25% of all goals for his club. Stevenage isn’t doing much better either as their top scorer is actually a midfielder – List Elliott with 7. Add the bad weather to all this and we expect a low-scoring game.
