Betting With Blues: Southend vs Barnsley

1 December 2018

Blues are back at Roots Hall today, for the second time this week, but this time they take on Barnsley in the Second Round of the Emirates FA Cup...

Chris Powell's side will be looking to progress through to the Third Round of the competition with a win today and you can back Blues to win the match at odds of 12/5.

The Tykes, who were knocked out of the competition at the first attempt last year by Millwall are rated at 11/10 odds and are favourites for the clash.

The last time Barnsley visited Roots Hall was back in the 2015/16 season which saw Southend run out 2-1 winner thanks to goals from Anthony Wordsworth and Luke Prosser and you can back the same result at 11/1.

Five Blues players were on target in the previous FA Cup game and you can back them to score at any time with the following odds:

Simon Cox - 7/4

Harry Bunn - 9/4

John White - 18/1

Sam Mantom - 5/1

Stephen McLaughlin - 9/2

Simon Cox scored a brace against Crawley and if you think the striker will do the same again you can back him at odds of 15/2.

If you fancy Southend getting a repeat of their last FA Cup game which saw them win 6-2 you can back that result at 250/1.

Four out of the last five games Blues have played have ended with over 2.5 goals and if you think today will be another one of those results you can odds of 1/1.

Southend United Football Club would like to remind supporters to please gamble responsibly and remember that all odds are subject to change. When the fun stops, STOP.
