League Two play off final preview

Expect the scoring powers of Southend and Wycombe to be on full show at Wembley

Fourth plays fifth. 84 points plays 84 points. Things could not be any tighter in this year’s League Two Playoff Final, and the betting odds echo this. Southend are priced at 8/5 whilst Wycombe start as the smallest of underdogs at 17/10. With so little to choose between the teams the 11/5 priced draw looks the best option, but those still unsure can bet on their being plenty of goals, as these attacking forces clash in the showcase League Two match of the season.

  1. With both teams tied on 84 points just six league goals have separated them over 46 games this season. In head-to-head matches the pair have drawn two of their last three meetings, including a 2-2 stalemate just a couple of months ago. Another draw can be backed at 11/5.
  2. Wycombe are the joint second top goalscorers in League Two this season, whilst Southend’s tally of 54 goals is also impressive. Both teams have scored in the last five meetings between the sides and on the big Wembley pitch a repeat of the trend looks almost a certainty. Back it at 4/5.
  3. Barry Corr is the sixth highest goalscorer in league two this season with 15 strikes. At 11/10 he is good value to get on the score sheet in this fixture.
  4. Just over 30% of Wycombe games this season have averaged over 3.5 goals. Odds of 13/5 on their being over 3.5 goals in this fixture looks a massive price.
  5. Southend have drawn two of their games by a 2-2 scoreline this season, whilst just over 10% of Wycombe’s fixtures have finished by this same result. When the two teams last clashed the game finished 2-2 and a repeat score can be backed at 14/1.
  6. Southend are notoriously quick starters, scoring the first goal in 65.2% of their fixtures. Back them to be leading at half-time at 21/10.
  7. With 15 goals this season, Paul Hayes has almost double the amount of any other player at Wycombe. He looks by far the most likely to open the scoring for his team. Back him to find the net at 6/4.
