Betting: Blackman looks the best bet

Have your say

Sheffield United conceded a goal right at the death last week, Oldham Athletic levelling at Bramall Lane deep into injury-time and punters can bet on another late goal today as the Blades head to Preston, Paddy Power offering 10/11 for the final strike of the contest to arrive after the 73-minute mark.

It’s 4/5 with Stan James for both teams to get on the scoresheet while a match tally of three or more goals is available via bet365 at even money and for those recalling last season’s 4-2 triumph for United in the corresponding fixture, William Hill mark 14/1 against this one producing at least six goals. BetVictor rate Nick Blackman at 11/2 to bag the first and the Blades front man is 6/4 courtesy of Skybet to find the net for the third league match in a row. Alternatively, John Cofie is a 7/1 chance at Ladbrokes to break the deadlock and BetVictor price Dave Kitson at 13/2.

At the Valley, Stan James quote Charlton and Barnsley at 9/10 to share three or more goals between them and bet365 offer odds of 7/5 about the Tykes being the first team to get on the scoresheet.

Elsewhere, a David Cotterill opener for Doncaster at home to Brentford is on offer via BetVictor at a generous 12/1 and Daniel Nardiello is 11/2 (bet365) to fire the first as the Millers head to Aldershot.

At St James Park meanwhile, Paddy Power post 13/2 against Jack Lester scoring for Chesterfield with the opening goal at Exeter.
