Southend United Betting Tips

Southend United may have lingered in League One and Two for most of their history, but a meteoric rise from League Two in 2004 all the way to the Championship in 2006 made the punters sit up and take notice. 

They may not have been able to replicate that success in recent years, but you can still find profitable SUFC bets if you know where to look. This page will give you everything you need to spot those good value Southend United wagers.

If you’re looking for predictions on the main match outcomes, you’ll find plenty of Southend United betting tips online. Make sure to check the source’s betting history before you trust their selections.

The main match outcomes are never the best value for money, so if you want to turn more of a profit you’re better looking in the deeper markets. You’ll need to be aware of the wagers that are available, and you may need to increase your knowledge of the Shrimpers, but that will help you spot the extra value bets.

Southend United Betting Odds

A good way to get better value for money is to shop around for the best price on your wager. The odds can change rapidly and this can be time-consuming, but there are online comparison sites which will show you the odds for your wager across multiple sportsbooks

One of the main disadvantages of the price comparison sites is that they only display the main markets (1x2, handicaps, etc). If your wager is among the deeper markets you’ll have to search for the best price the old-fashioned way.

Southend United Bonus Bets

SUFC have a few fierce local rivals, and if any of those teams are playing the Shrimpers you’ll often see Southend United bonus bets being advertised. These are often used by bookmakers to lure in new customers, but savvy punters can take advantage of them too. 

Be sure to read the small print before you claim any bonus, but keep an eye out for money-back promos, enhanced accumulators and odds boosts, as these can all help to increase your bankroll. 

Southend United Fixtures

Matches can be postponed for many reasons, and although it’s never a welcome situation, it does happen occasionally. It can cause a domino effect for a number of teams, which can lead to a pile-up of games over a short period of time.

When that happens you will often see a change in the betting odds, which is why you need to be aware of what’s happening with the SUFC fixtures. We advise getting your intel from the most trustworthy source: the Southend United website.

Southend United Results

If Southend are on a run of form you can often find more good value bets. They won eight consecutive games in 2005 and kept eight consecutive clean sheets in 2015; that kind of run would have made some serious cash for the punters who backed them.

You can find all of SUFC’s previous results for this season (and previous seasons) in the results section of the official website, under the ‘matches’ tab. If you want a more in-depth analysis, check out an online statistics website where you can assess individual player and team metrics.
