Bradford City-Burton Albion Betting Preview: Bantams to come out on top in low scoring game

Tonight sees the start of the playoffs in League Two, with the Brewers heading to Yorkshire. Our tipster is backing few goals and has a 11/5 value bet
After 46 league games, Bradford City host Burton Albion in the first leg of their League Two play-off match. The two sides met less than three weeks ago at the Coral Windows Stadium, with the host coming out on top in a tight 1-0 victory.

Bradford are aiming to reach Wembley for the second time this season after a fantastic run in the Capital One Cup, eventually losing to Swansea City in the final.

Phil Parkinson’s men have only been beaten once in nine matches, and are certainly confident of getting the job done in Yorkshire again. William Hill price them as favourites for this clash at 19/20 (1.95).

Burton have been a revelation this season in the league, just missing out on an automatic promotion spot by two points.

However, Gary Rowett’s men have only won one of their last six away matches, with their home form the main factor for them finishing in fourth position this season.

The Brewers are outsides for this first leg at 11/4 (3.75) with William Hill to come away with the win. The same firm offers the draw at 5/2 (3.50).

With Bradford maybe a tad short, it’s worth looking at the goal market for a fantastic price. When the two sides met last month, goals were hard to come by and the price of 10/11 (1.91) with William Hill that there are under 2.5 goals seems like a steal.

The last three matches would have paid out in this bet for Bradford, as well as three out of the last four for Burton. With a tight fixture expected for the first leg of the play-offs, expect this to come in easily.

For those looking at more value, Bradford to win to nil at 11/5 (3.20) is certainly worth investing in. From the Bantams last four wins at home, three would have paid out on this bet. Add into fact that in Burton’s last six away losses, they have only found the net on one occasion.
