Sheffield Wednesday’s last four games have produced a total of 15 goals, an average of nearly four per game, so it’s not unreasonable to assume that the Owls trip to Leyton Orient will see the scorers troubled on at least three occasions, an outcome Partybets price at 17/20.
The midweek game against Walsall produced four goals and a repeat of that tally can be backed at 9/4 with Betfred while Stan James offer 4/6 for both teams to score at Brisbane Road, where Dave Jones’ side are Ladbrokes’ 5/2 favourites to break the deadlock.
The scorer of the Owls’ last-gasp leveller on Tuesday, Gary Madine, heads the first scorer betting at 11/2 with William Hill and Ryan Lowe is slightly bigger at 6/1 courtesy of BetVictor. The pair can also be backed at 6/4 (Skybet) and 2/1 (Coral) respectively to find the net at any stage.
In the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final tomorrow at Wembley, a tight affair could be on the cards and Blue Square offer 8/11 for Chesterfield and Swindon to produce fewer than three goals between them across the 90 minutes.
