Reason For Peterborough vs Accrington Stanley Betting Tips

Peterborough play host to Accrington on Wednesday night, as they look to win for the third game in a row, as well as go five league games unbeaten. The visitors, who're likely to be high on confidence after their victory over the league leaders, will be looking to secure back-to-back wins for the first time this term.

Posh continued to establish themselves as a serious top-six team at the weekend, as they went away to Gillingham and returned with all three points. Since losing their first two games of the season, which is forgivable, Darren Ferguson's men, who only narrowly missed out on the play-offs last term, have made positive strides, winning seven out of 11, only one of which they've lost.

Wednesday's hosts have been particularly useful on their own patch, where they've won four, drawn one and lost one, scoring a pleasing 17 goals and conceded seven in the process. Only one team in League 1 has scored more home goals than Peterborough, who with top scorers Mohamed Eisa and Ivan Toney in their forward line, look very dangerous going forward.

While Peterborough have thrived at home, Accrington have been somewhat weak on their travels. Wednesday's visitors have avoided defeat in four out of seven, which isn't bad, but they've won just one of those four.

The main issue for Stanley on the road is that more often than not, their attacking efforts haven't matched those of their opponents. By averaging 1.35 expected goals for, Coleman's men haven't been awful in terms of creativity, but an average of 1.45 against shows that they've not been able to better their opponents often enough, which is ultimately why they've conceded more than they've scored away from home. In contrast, at home, Peterborough have a pleasing average expected goal difference of +0.92.

In all honesty, the hosts are hard to oppose. Stanley do come into this match off the back of a pleasing win last time out, which should allow them to feel confident. However, their away-day efforts don't exactly point towards them toppling one of the best home teams in the division.

The bet that catches the eye is 'Peterborough to Win & Over 2.5 Goals'. Posh, who have both of League 1's top scorers in their ranks, have been outstanding going forward at home, so much so that they look a good bet to win in high-scoring fashion against an Accrington side that has struggled to keep teams at bay on the road. The visitors may make their presence felt going forward, as some teams have done against Peterborough, but they simply lack the creativity and the firepower to come out on top.
