The betting ahead of the big game at Roots Hall on Thursday evening

Southend are 1/2 favourites to progress to the Sky Bet League 2 play-off final after earning a 1-1 draw in the first leg at Stevenage. 

The Blues are even-money to win inside 90 minutes at Roots Hall while a draw, which would mean extra-time is needed to separate the sides, can be backed at 12/5. 

The visitors will be disappointed not to be taking an advantage into the second leg having taken the lead through Dean Parrett but those who fancy them to book their place at Wembley can get 8/5 about them qualifying and 11/4 for a victory in normal time. 

Southend fans will more confident after their team finished the campaign 12 points clear of their opponents and also won the home fixture 2-0 back in August. 

A repeat scoreline in 90 minutes is 8/1. The hosts are 17/2 to win in extra-time and 11/1 on penalties while Stevenage are 14/1 and 11/1 in the respective markets. Barry Corr, who netted the equaliser in the first leg, is 5/1 to score first and evens to net anytime. 

Stevenage pair Charlie Lee and Chris Beardsley are both 8/1 and 11/4 in the respective markets.
