Huddersfield vs Peterborough Playoff betting
League 2 play off final betting preview
Lee Clark’s Huddersfield have gone 27 games without being beaten, they managed to scrape through the play-offs after an exciting 2 legs against Bournemouth which had to be settled from the penalty spot. The Terriers missed out on automatic promotion by 5 points but go into the final as the team to beat, they play physical football and will be looking to take the game to Posh over the 90 minutes. Top scorer Jordan Rhodes has scored 22 times in all competitions and is a certain starter alongside Arsenal loanee Benik Afobe, the pair have been on deadly form all season but it has been Afobe who has scored 4 in his last 4 games and is a good bet to score at any time in the final at Old Trafford at odds of 3.0 on Coral.
Huddersfield’s defence though is leaky and have conceded 12 in their past 6 games overall, so while they may be undefeated they are not infallible and one thing that you can count on against Peterborough United is goals so why not have a bet on both teams scoring at odds of 1.62 on SkyBet.
Peterborough’s season is really a tale of two halves, one half under Gary Johnson where the side only kept 2 clean sheets and the latter under Darren Ferguson who returned for his second spell at the club. His return has brought a renewed sense of happiness to the club and has led them to 9 clean sheets and a total of 106 goals over the course of the season, a truly staggering figure. They have been helped to this by League 1’s Player of the Year Craig Mackail-Smith who has netted a fantastic 34 times this season and only needs 2 more goals to reach a century of goals for the Posh, the odds of him scoring a brace are 10.0 on SkyBet so if you fancy the blonde haired workhorse to be the hero at Old Trafford why not have a punt.
The truly marvellous thing about the Posh though are that the goals can come from anywahere, midfielder George Boyd who has had a supposedly ‘quiet’ season has scored an astonishing 17 times this season, while Lee Tomlin made the step up from conference football with ease and has scored 11 times this season, captain Grant McCann showed his quality in the 2nd leg at London Road against MK Dons with a great free kick and a display of dominance at the centre of midfield. All of these men would be fantastic bets to score at any time but why not go for the underdog, the dark horse, the guaranteed starter who has already scored 4 this season from centre back, Ryan Bennet. Bennet is tipped at 34.0 on SkyBet to score the final goal in the tie, with Grant McCann providing the ammunition surely that’s worth a punt?
