Four of the last five derby showdowns played at Bramall Lane have produced at least three goals and tomorrow’s clash is 1.9 (9/10) courtesy of Betdaq to follow suit.
Partybets post 7/10 against both United and Wednesday supporters having a goal to celebrate but it’s the Blades that are expected to break the deadlock, Stan James rating Danny Wilson’s men at 4/5 to strike first.
That opener is 6/1 via Skybet to be struck by Ched Evans, who is 13/8 via Boylesports to get on the scoresheet at any stage and also a 6/1 shot in the first scorer betting, this time with Ladbrokes, is Evans’ likely strike partner Chris Porter. Betfred meanwhile, make the former Motherwell marksman 7/4 to add to his tally at any time.
At the other end, Owls fans will like the look of Victor Chandler’s 6/1 chalked against a Gary Madine opener, especially as the Wednesday man has bagged 10 goals in his last nine league matches. David McGoldrick is a 9/1 shot in bet365’s first scorer market and the pair are 2/1 (Boylesports) and 11/4 (bet365) respectively to find the net.
In the Championship, Barnsley’s clash with Portsmouth looks set to be a low-scoring encounter and Sportingbet mark 4/6 against the two sides generating fewer than three goals between them.
Striker Andy Gray is well backed at 15/2 (Totesport) to open the scoring at Fratton Park, where he is 13/5 with Paddy Power to score at any point.
Finally, at the B2net Stadium, Leon Clarke is 11/2 (Skybet) to put Chesterfield 1-0 up against Notts County.
