Scunthorpe News and Form

The Iron have a good W4 D5 L3 record posted up on the board League One so far which leaves them in mid-table. They have put together a good undefeated streak of four matches at Glanford Park, having lost just one league game there this season (W2 D3 L1). They have recorded back to back wins there against Shrewsbury and Charlton ahead of this one, so that’s a huge positive. The Iron have scored at least two goals in three of their last four on home soil as well.

Over 2.5 goals at 4/7 odds* (betting odds taken on October 10th, 2018 at 2:23 pm) makes a lot of sense for the game, especially with the visiting Posh scoring so well this season. There have been plenty of goals flying around at Glanford Park this season, matches there averaging 4.3 goals per game. It’s no great surprise then that the Iron have just one home clean sheet in the division so far, conceding fourteen goals in six home games, which isn’t great at all. They have only been trailing once at halftime at home this season.

Peterborough News and Form

Peterborough were the early form team in League One this season, smashing and storming their way to a tremendous W6 D1 record in their first seven games. They haven’t been quite as hot as that recently as they have taken just the one win in their last five games (D2 L2) so this could be a good time for Scunthorpe to be hosting them. Last weekend the Posh were smashed 4-0 at home against Barnsley and they have looked more and more defensively fragile.

The Posh have a great W5 D1 record away from home this season, but still, we see value in backing the home side. Peterborough have conceded at least two goals in each for their last six league outings now. What they do have going for them is that they are the division’s top scorers with 28 goals in 12 games played but they have conceded more goals than anyone else in the top eleven currently. Both teams to score is an obvious option at 1/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 10th, 2018 at 2:23 pm). Peterborough have averaged of three goals per game out on their travels and 63% of their road goals have been after the halftime break.

Scunthorpe v Peterborough Predictions

Scunthorpe to win: There is a decent chance of an upset happening in this one as Scunthorpe have carried strong home form recently and have been scoring freely. Peterborough have been great but were taken down a peg last weekend. Home win.
