Betting Preview: Southend United vs. Burton Albion

19 December 2014

The betting odds ahead of the Blues vs. the Brewers at Roots Hall tonight.

Southend are without the suspended Jerome Binnom-Williams but Adam Thompson returns from a ban and is a 12/1 chance to mark his return by scoring at any time in this Friday evening match. 

Their top scorer this season Jack Payne is a 6/1 chance to net the first goal of the game. 

The Blues, 11/10 favourites to win here with League sponsors Sky Bet, won both encounters against Burton last season by a 1-0 scoreline and it’s an 11/2 chance for that to be the final score again. 

Burton bashed Hartlepool by a confidence-boosting 4-0 last weekend and that win can only have done good, but Southend were in good form until going down at Wycombe and remain a tough side to get on top of at home.

Top tip: Both teams to score at 5/6.
