Oldham’s four away matches in League One have yielded only six goals and they have the joint best defensive record on the road, where they have conceded on just three occasions.
Some punters might therefore expect a low-scoring affair as they visit Bramall Lane, where Stan James offer odds of 10/11 about United and their opponents sharing fewer than three goals.
As the visitors do not score too many, a Blades clean sheet at 11/8 (Paddy Power) is not out of the question. while Skybet rate Danny Wilson’s side at 7/4 to prevail ‘to nil’ and Stan James chalk 20/21 against only one team netting.
Nick Blackman was United’s match winner last weekend at Leyton Orient and the striker is a 5/1 shot at BetVictor to break the deadlock again today. Alternatively, bet365 price the 22-year-old at 11/8 to notch at any stage, Ladbrokes make Dave Kitson 9/2 to open the scoring and William Hill quote Paul Gallagher at 7/1 in the same market.
