Bookies make Blades good bet to prolong agony

Have your say

Depending on what happens at the Keepmoat Stadium today, defeat for Sheffield United against Bristol City tomorrow could see the Blades relegated.

Victor Chandler make United favourites at 7/5 while Betdaq post 3.0 (2/1) against an away win. Betfred offer 12/5 for a draw at Bramall Lane, and Stan James price a goalless encounter at 10/1.

bet365 offer a United triumph by a one-goal margin at 3/1. Coral make Mickey Adams’ charges 17/2 to finish 2-1 winners and with a nervy start a distinct possibility for the Blades, a home win following on from an even first period, is 9/2 with Totesport.

Elsewhere, Sportingbet’s 7/10, marked against a United success in the online bookie’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market. Paddy Power offer 6/1 for them to be awarded a penalty and then convert it.

Sheffield Wednesday have just league position to play for as they face relegation threatened Walsall. The Owls are also outsiders, at 11/5 (William Hill) to overcome the Saddlers, Totesport’s 11/8 favourites.

Ladbrokes rate a draw at 12/5 at the Banks’s Stadium, where Gary Megson’s side are 8/15 with Partybets to avoid defeat. For confident Wednesday fans, Betfred’s 10/1 for a 2-1 win, could be eye catching.

Doncaster’s poor run of form has dragged them into a relegation scrap in the Championship. Defeat against fellow strugglers Crystal Palace in today’s six-pointer would make it a nervy end to the season. Sean O’Driscoll’s men are favourites at 13/10 with Stan James to get a win that would almost guarantee their safety. Given the Eagles’ dismal away record, it’s hard not to fancy Doncaster, who are 3/1 (bet365) to sneak it by one.

Barnsley are quoted by bet365 at 10/3 to emerge triumphant at Vicarage Road and 11/4 with William Hill to secure a share of the spoils against Watford and finally, in League Two, Chesterfield need to avoid defeat (1/2, Partybets) at Oxford to confirm promotion and they’re 12/5 (Betfred) to earn a point at the Kassam Stadium while Betdaq offer 1.75 (7/4) for the Spireites to do it in style with a victory. Sportingbet price Rotherham at 9/5 to see off Northampton.
