Reason For Burton Albion vs Southend United Betting Tips

  • Both of these sides are in need of a victory after mixed returns this season.
  • Southend boss Sol Campbell has lost every league game in charge.
  • Southend have lost 83% of their league games this term.
  • Under 2.5 goals has landed in 100% of Burton’s home games.

Both Sides Need a Result

Tuesday’s action from League One sees two sides who could do with a result go head to head. The visitors are on course for League Two on current form, while Burton are pushing to turn around some dodgy form at their own ground. However, they are hoping that Southend’s dismal record on their travels will lead to a much-needed victory for the home side.

Burton come into this game in midtable in League One, with their home record in need of some work. However, the home side are coming off a solid run of form, with back to back victories to their name. They’ve won three of their last four matches heading into this encounter, which has left the hosts as the odds-on favourites for this midweek clash.

Southend’s Struggles

Southend are second bottom, with the worst points return in the division. They’re being propped up by Bolton’s troubles, but the visitors are still heading towards relegation. The away side have fallen 11 points shy of safety even in a season which sees only three sides facing the drop from League One. Can they turn around their campaign in this trip?

Overall this season, the Shrimpers have lost 15 times in 18 matches. That’s awful return, which comes despite their change of manager to bring in Sol Campbell. The former Arsenal defender has lost all five league clashes in League One so far, while the odds suggest that they’re on for another defeat in this one after losing seven of nine trips.

Another Quiet Night for the Brewers

Burton are favourites to shade this one, with some odd home form behind them. They are unbeaten in four home games in League One, which came after two losses to two of the current top four. In that four-game run, the hosts haven’t conceded a goal. If they can keep that up against a Southend side who have conceded a goal in 94% of their matches, we see a Burton win.

However, the hosts aren’t likely to thump four or five goals here. They’ve scored just 20 times in 18 matches this season. That’s led to some low scoring home games, with 100% of their matches here finishing with fewer than three goals scored. Only 17% have seen more than one goal scored, so we expect a low scoring clash here. Given that form, a win for the heavy favourites with under 2.5 goals scored seems like great value.

We’re also going for a 1-0 victory for Burton in this clash, with the hosts hoping to build on that strong defensive record at home. The Brewers have already seen plenty of low scoring home games, with 50% of the games here finishing with exactly one goal scored. The visitors have already lost by a single goal in half their away defeats so far, so we are backing a 1-0 Burton win in our correct score tip.
