Bradford City v Fleetwood Town Betting: Take a chance on goals at Valley Parade

Sheffield United v Bradford City 1
The League One play-offs get underway on Thursday and our tipster believes goals are overpriced, having an 8/1 (9.0) correct score selection in mind

The regular Football League season is drawing to a close but for clubs in England's third tier, the play-offs are getting underway earlier than usual.

Due to a scheduling clash with the FA Cup final, Braford City will host Fleetwood Town on Thursday night as the two clubs look to establish a first leg lead in their quest for glory at Wembley and a place in a Championship.

The home side are 19/20 (1.95) at dabblebet to seize the initiative with a victory. Having lost out to eventual winners Millwall last season, Stuart McCall took over from Phil Parkinson, who has since led Bolton to automatic promotion.

The Bantams are extremely tough to beat at Valley Parade; in fact, they're one of only two clubs in the top four tiers, along with Tottenham, not to taste defeat on home soil this season.

Fleetwood may have finished one place and three points better off than their hosts, but the Cod Army are priced at 16/5 (4.20) to establish a first leg lead on the road while the draw is 12/5 (3.40) with dabblebet.

Despite each side boasting an impressive defensive record this term, both teams to score could be a solid bet at 11/10 (2.10) in this game. Bradford leaked just 17 goals at home during the season but eight of those (47%) came in matches with their fellow top seven finishers, with both teams on the scoresheet in five of their six encounters.

Uwe Rosler's visitors were on target in 21 of their 23 away games this campaign too, including wins at eventual League One champions Sheffield United and third placed Scunthorpe, so they know how to make their mark at the most testing venues. At 11/10 (2.10), goals at both ends looks overpriced.

Those seeking a bigger pay-out should consider Bradford to win 2-1 on the correct score market. Both regular season clashes finished 2-1 to the respective home side and this bet landed on six occasions in Fleetwood's away days overall, that's 26.1% of all their League One trips this term.

At 8/1 (9.0) not only does it promise plentiful returns, but if successful, dabblebet's updated "Both Teams to Score, You Win More" promotion will boost any winnings by a massive 25%, paid in cash.

This offer runs on all First/Last Goalscorer and correct score wagers in England and Scotland's top four divisions, plus the Champions League and Europa League too. Full terms and conditions here.
