Despite enjoying home advantage, Sheffield Wednesday have drifted to 13/5 at William Hill to secure a maximum haul on Saturday as they welcome Championship title favourites Middlesbrough to Hillsborough.
The visitors will kick-off as Ladbrokes’s 5/4 favourites to emerge triumphant while there will inevitably be money at 5/2 (bet365) for Carlos Carvalhal’s troops to record a third league stalemate on the spin and another 1-1 scoreline is also set to be popular at 6/1 with BetVictor.
Bet365 price any score draw at 4/1 and in Winner.com’s handicaps Wednesday receive a goal start at 7/10 but for supporters feeling a touch more optimistic a more eye-catching proposition will be Paddy Power’s 4/1 about a home win by a one-goal margin. More precisely, BetVictor mark 17/2 against Carvalhal’s team grabbing the only goal.
Saturday’s defeat at QPR means Rotherham are rock bottom in the Championship but the consensus amongst bookmakers seems to be that the Millers have a great chance to grab their first win of the season at the fifth attempt this weekend as they entertain Fulham.
Stan James mark 7/5 against Steve Evans’s charges sending the Cottagers home empty-handed, another defeat for the Millers is 21/10 at bet365 and BetVictor price a stalemate at 5/2.
After a heavy defeat in their League One opener, Sheffield United have racked up three straight wins and they’re 6/4 with Skybet to make it four in a row at Swindon (2/1, bet365).
A close encounter looks likely at the County Ground, where the Blades are a generous 3/1 courtesy of Stan James to sneak it by one, BetVictor go 17/2 about Nigel Adkins’s team registering a 2-1 victory and they’re 5/1 (Winner.com) to secure the points after an even first 45 minutes.
Both Rochdale and Barnsley are locked on seven points after four matches as they prepare to face-off at Spotland on Saturday and as a result there are likely to be plenty of backers for bet365’s 5/2 about it finishing all square. Nevertheless, Lee Johnson’s men head across the Pennines as slight outsiders at 5/2 via Stan James with the hosts commanding 21/20 favouritism at bet365
Doncaster remain winless in League One this term but bookies are already reporting money for Rovers to pick up their first maximum haul as they host Fleetwood. BetVictor have trimmed the odds for Paul Dickov’s men to 11/10 while the visitors are a 13/5 chance at Stan James and it’s also 13/5, this time courtesy of bet365, for the two teams to be inseparable.
Finally, Chesterfield head to the New Den as Ladbrokes’s 2/1 outsiders and hosts Millwall are 31/20 (BetVictor) to send the Spireites home empty handed.
