Betting: The weekend odds on our sides hitting the goal trail

Have your say

Sheffield United had scored in 16 consecutive matches until they drew a blank against Yeovil in midweek but they’re expected to get back amongst the goals this weekend as they tackle a Bradford side that shipped six against Bristol City on Tuesday.

Stan James rate the Blades at 5/6 to find the net at least twice against the Bantams, a three-goal haul for United is 53/20 at and Ladbrokes quote 10/11 about both teams getting on the scoresheet.

It’s 8/15 (Stan James) for Nigel Clough’s charges to notch first and Matt Done is 19/4 with BetVictor to grab that opener. Alternatively, bet365 mark 11/2 against Sheffield United front man Steve Davies putting his side 1-0 up and Jose Baxter is a slightly chunkier 6/1 (BetVictor) in the same market.

Chesterfield racked up six goals against Colchester last time out but they’re as high as 13/5 courtesy of betway just to strike three times at Oldham. Stan James price the Boundary Park contest at 4/5 to yield three goals in total while Paddy Power go 5/6 for the Spireites to fire the first and it’s 15/2 (bet365) for Gary Roberts to follow his midweek brace with the opener in this one.

At the Keepmoat Stadium, William Hill quote Curtis Main at 6/1 to break the deadlock for Doncaster as they entertain Fleetwood and it’s a slightly bigger 13/2 via BetVictor for Barnsley front man Sam Winnall to open the scoring in his side’s home clash with Peterborough.

In the Championship, Sheffield Wednesday are evens (Skybet) just to net once at promotion-chasing Bournemouth and it’s a chunky 13/10 courtesy of BetVictor for both teams to strike. As underdogs in the match odds, the Owls are 15/4 at bet365 to take a 1-0 lead and Paddy Power offer a massive 14/1 about Caolan Lavery grabbing the first goal on the south coast.
