Sheffield United shipped four goals in their disappointing League One opener at Gillingham and bet365 quote 25/1 for the Blades to concede at least as many as they welcome Chesterfield to Bramall Lane.

The same firm make United 12/1 to strike four or more times at the other end and it’s 11/4 (BetVictor) for the match as a whole to generate over three goals.

Stan James quote of 4/5 about both teams contributing to that tally, post 8/11 against Nigel Adkins’s men notching first and it’s 6/4 (bet365) for the Spireites to break the deadlock.

BetVictor chalk United front man Billy Sharp up as the 5/1 favourite to open the scoring, Blades attacker Jose Baxter is a 7/1 shot via William Hill in the same market and where Dean Saunders’ charges are concerned, the first goal is 15/2 (BetVictor) to come from Sylvan Ebanks-Blake.

Sheffield Wednesday combined victory with a clean sheet as they got their Championship campaign under way against Bristol City but at odds of 5/1 (Paddy Power) aren’t expected to again triumph ‘to nil’ as they travel to Ipswich. William Hill offer even money for both sides to strike at Portman Road, where Stan James rate Licas Joao at 8/1 to put Wednesday 1-0 in front.
