Betting Preview: Stevenage vs. Southend United

7 May 2015

The odds ahead of the clash at Stevenage in the Sky Bet League Two play-offs.

Stevenage and Southend both had their chances to gain automatic promotion from Sky Bet League 2 and both let their opportunity slip. 

United are likely to be the most frustrated of the pair as ensuring a top-three place was in their own hands going into the final weekend before they were beaten 3-1 by Morecambe. 

They are 22/1 to make amends in a ‘play-off winners treble’ along with Norwich and Preston. Phil Brown’s men will dust themselves down and they’re 4/7 to better last year’s effort and make it through the play-off semis and reach Wembley. 

A United victory on Sunday evening can be backed at 9/5, with Stevenage 6/4 to claim a first-leg advantage having ended the season proper with a limp 2-0 loss at Luton. 

Graham Westley’s Borough recorded a 4-2 success over Southend at Broadway Hall at the end of February and those fancying a repeat scoreline will be rewarded at 80/1. 

The correct score market is topped by 1-1 at 9/2, while any score draw is chalked up at 100/30.
Top tip: Both teams to score in this match at 10/11.
