Peterborough will win

Southend – Peterborough Match Prediction | 20-08-2019

Southend however are struggling towards the foot of the table at the moment, sitting in 20th place at the moment just one place clear of the relegation zone on goal difference alone. This fixture could have huge ramifications at both ends of the table. Towards the top, Peterborough remain in the hunt for a play-off position, sitting just two places and two points behind an out-of-sorts Doncaster Rovers outfit that currently occupy sixth place in the table.

They may not be in the best form at the moment but Posh will surely consider this home fixture against an out-of-sorts relegation candidate as a huge opportunity to return to winning ways and get that promotion push back on track. For all of their struggles this season, the Shrimpers do carry a goal threat through the likes of Tom Hopper and Simon Cox so we can see value in backing the home win and both teams to score selection at odds of21/10 withWilliam Hill.

Peterborough Stats

The visitors managed to hold Ipswich Town to a draw on home soil at the weekend, but given their shaky defence, we are tempted to put our money on the Seasiders this time out. The fact that Southend United outplayed Stevenage in their League Cup opener is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of the Posh.

We have seen both sides scoring and conceding goals on the regular, coming into the match on the back of some high-scoring clashes lately, and we should now be in for another thriller! We do feel were in for a great challenge but we do see goals this time around, as we also go for Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.70.

The former Stevenage forward has struck up a healthy partnership with former Newcastle United youngster Ivan Toney, which each of them scoring 12 league goals so far. Matt Godden has been a thorn in the side of League One defences this season. Godden is the man in better form at the moment, so were backing him for another in this game at odds of6/4 withBet365.

Reason For Southend vs Peterborough Betting Tips

The Shrimpers would always be concerned by being just one place clear of the relegation zone but even more so when you consider than just 10 points separate the whole bottom half of the table, leaving every team in danger of being relegated from 12th down. Southend find themselves in the midst of a fascinating relegation battle in the bottom half of the table. Can they earn a vital away victory here at odds of 16/5 withPaddyPower?

This makes these odds for Over 2.5 Goals look attractive, so were backing that along with a repeat of Peterboroughs 2-2 draw at the weekend. For this reason, were expecting a fairly high scoring game. Both sides have seen 2 of their 3 League One games end with at least 3 goals being scored, and looking back into last season both have also seen 7 of their last 12 respective home and away games end with 3 or more goals.

Peterborough sit at the top of the table after six games played, bagging 16 points and only seeing their five-game winning streak ended with a 1-1 draw against Doncaster Rovers. However, theyve struggled to bounce back and now have a thriller EFL Trophy loss to MK Dons behind them as well, which does give out a feeling theres work to do in the dressing room.
