6 September 2013

With only one home side winning last week we are set for another action packed weekend of surprises in Sky Bet League One. Read on for Sky Bet’s take on Stevenage's chances this weekend.
Stevenage picked up another valuable point last weekend with a home draw against Bradford and now the Blues will be looking for back-to-back away wins. It's a feat they've managed on 6/16 occasions since their promotion in 2011.

The Blues trips to bottom-six teams like Tranmere tend to be low scoring. Very low scoring in fact, with 7/10 since the start of last season being under 1.5 goals and 9/10 having fewer than three goals.  A low scoring game is supported by Tranmere's record when hosting bottom-half sides, as 7/11 games have had fewer than three goals. Under 1.5 goals is 9/4 with the sponsors.

A feature of low scoring games tends to be that one of the teams fails to score. In only three of Tranmere's 12 home games against bottom-half sides have both teams scored and its also been the case in only one of The Blues last 10 visits to bottom-six teams like Tranmere. Both teams not to score is currently 10/11 with Sky Bet.

Other reasons to bet:

• Stevenage have been level at the break in their last four trips to bottom-six sides
• Tranmere have conceded first in their last four when hosting bottom-half teams
• Six of The Blues last seven games against bottom-six sides have had more goals in the second half
