Portsmouth have kept five consecutive clean sheets and so goal-shy Sheffield United, who have found the net just five times in nine games, will have their work cut out breaching their opponents mean defence.
The Blades are 8/15 at Partybets to get on the scoresheet but their lack of cutting edge has prompted to Coral to price them at a chunky 3/1 to bag at least two goals at Fratton Park in a clash that will be well backed at 1.75 (3/4) with Betdaq to produce fewer than three goals in total.
Barnsley’s Danny Haynes is a 7/1 shot at Ladbrokes to give the Reds a 1-0 lead at Derby and priced identically, this time by Stan James, is Billy Sharp to open the scoring for Doncaster at Leeds.
At Hillsborough, Sheffield Wednesday’s Tommy Miller is 12/1 with Betfred to again bag the first goal as the Owls face struggling Plymouth and William Hill rate Miller at 4/1 to find the net at any time. Gary Madine is considered a more likely first goal scorer by Paddy Power at 6/1.
