Peterborough 2/1 to beat Southend in Saturdays League One matchup
Competition: League One
Market: Peterborough win
Odds: 2/1 @ Bet 365
Looking to continue their stay at the top of the League One table, Peterborough will travel to Roots Hall on Saturday to face a Southend side who have struggled at home of late.
Starting with the hosts, although they flirted with the playoffs last season, Southend have struggled to find a rhythm this year. In their six opening games in League One, Southend have now won two, drawn one and lost three, scoring 7 and conceding eight in return. As for their recent form, Southend have now lost two of their last three league outings and also haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last three appearances. It will also be their record at Roots Hall that will be a concern for The Shrimpers, they have now managed to win just two of their last eight home matches in all competitions.
As for the visitors, tipped by many as the pre-season title contenders, Peterborough have enjoyed a stellar start to the new campaign. In their opening six League One matches, they are yet to be beaten having won five and drawn one, scoring 16 and conceding five in return, they now hold the best-attacking stats in the division. Along with winning their last League One away match 5-1 at Plymouth, Peterborough have won all three of their matches on the road so far this season. Given Southend’s struggles at home, we’re backing Peterborough to carry on their unbeaten run on Saturday.
