Mansfield to Win
Mansfield are riding a powerful wave of momentum thanks to a run of four straight victories in league and cup, and the in-form Stags are fancied to beat Scunthorpe this weekend. The Iron are propping up the rest in League Two and they have yet to record a single win on the road this term. With the hosts in excellent shape, we recommend siding with them in the match result markets.
Over 1.5 Mansfield Team Goals
Only Stevenage have conceded more away goals than Scunthorpe so far this season and the Iron have shipped at least two efforts in five of their last six League Two tests on the road. Mansfield meanwhile, rattled the net eight times across their last two fixtures at the One Call Stadium and they can put their sharp cutting edge to good use again against Scunthorpe. With that in mind, backing them in the over 1.5 team goals market could prove a smart approach.
Both Teams to Score
Scunthorpe have collected just two points from their last five away fixtures, though the Iron did manage to get on the scoresheet in all but one of the same matches despite their string of disappointing results. Their knack for notching could allow them to net a consolation again on Saturday and when you consider that BTTS landed in three of Mansfield’s last four league skirmishes, the same market suddenly stands out at a price worth backing again.
