Statistic lovers will find it hard to make a judgement on the potential for goals as Sheffield Wednesday entertain Middlesbrough.
The Owls’ last couple for example, have thrown up a whopping nine, which not only lends appeal to a match tally of three or more goals at 5/4 with Stan James, it also points to the clash producing at least four (10/3, Winner.com).
However, Boro’s last three outings have generated only four goals and Stuart Gray’s men possess by far the least prolific home attack in the Championship so a case can be made for a low-scoring affair featuring fewer than three goals at 8/13 via Skybet. Bookies feel successful strikes will be at a premium at Hillsborough, where Stan James mark an odds-on 8/11 against the ‘no’ option in the ‘Both Teams to Score’ market and from a Wednesday perspective, bet365 chalk them up at 6/4 to break the deadlock.
It’s 15/2 at BetVictor for Stevie May to open the scoring; William Hill rate Will Keane at 7/1.
Sheffield United have netted 13 times in five games and bet365 rate the Blades at 4/5 to add another couple of goals to their tally as they go to Crawley. They are 8/15 (Ladbrokes) to grab the opening goal in a fixture that’s 10/11 (Stan James) to produce a minimum of three and BetVictor go 11/2 about Mark McNulty putting United 1-0 in front.
Betway go 21/20 about Rotherham and Millwall conjuring up over 2.5 goals at the New York Stadium, the Millers are 5/6 (Paddy Power) to fire first and BetVictor quote a Conor Sammon opener 6/1.
Elsewhere, bet365 quote Armand Gnanduillet to notch first for Chesterfield at home to Fleetwood, Barnsley’s George Waring is 15/2 via BetVictor to do likewise as the Tykes head to Gillingham and the first goal in Doncaster’s clash with Colchester is 9/2 at William Hill to come from Curtis Main.
