A betting preview ahead of the Sky Bet League Two match at Roots Hall
Southend are flying at the moment, on a 10-match unbeaten run and with four wins in their last five lifting them to fourth in the table and right into the automatic promotion picture – it’s now odds-on at 4/5 with the sponsors that they go up to Sky Bet League 1 at the end of this season.
The Blues are 4/7 to pick up another three points at Roots Hall against Accrington Stanley (5/1) with the draw priced at 11/4.
Accrington snapped a five-match losing streak with Tuesday night’s 1-0 victory over Oxford but face another tough test here.
Three of Stanley’s last four matches have ended 1-0 while, under 2.5 goals would’ve collected in each of Southend’s last three.
That looks worth a bet here, while supporters of the home side might consider taking the 2/1 that they win but that under 2.5 goals are scored.
Top tip: Under 2.5 goals at 4/6.
