Bookies bet on Blades double

Have your say

Sheffield United’s opponents, Bury, have conceded twice in each of their last four matches and that pattern is odds on to be extended by the Blades, who are 8/13 courtesy of Ladbrokes to notch at least twice against the Shakers at Bramall Lane.

Stan James offer 8/11 for the match to produce a minimum of three goals and, as clean sheets have proven hard to come by for Danny Wilson’s men this term, some punters might fancy Skybet’s 5/6 for both teams to find the net.

Bet365 price United at 5/1 to strike four times as they did in the corresponding fixture last season and the first goal is also 5/1, this time via BetVictor, to be bagged by John Cofie, who is 11/8 (Paddy Power) to get on the scoresheet at any time.

Alternatively, BetVictor chalk 5/1 against a Nick Blackman opener and Dave Kitson, who is likely to appear in Wilson’s squad for the first time is a 5/1 shot at William Hill to break the deadlock.

Staying in League One, Doncaster’s Billy Paynter opened his account for the club in his side’s last match a fortnight ago and the Rovers front man is 13/2 with bet365 to double his tally by putting his team 1-0 up as they visit Colchester. A Paynter goal at any point meanwhile, is on offer via Skybet at 7/4.

In the Championship, Craig Davies is a 7/1 chance at Stan James to grab his third of the campaign but opening the scoring for Barnsley as they entertain league leaders Blackpool and bet365 post 2/1 against the Tykes attacker making the net bulge at any stage in a contest Stan James rate at 4/5 to generate three or more goals.

Finally, in League Two, BetVictor make a Craig Westcarr opener 11/2 as Chesterfield entertain Wycombe and scorer of a consolation penalty in last week’s 6-2 mauling at Port Vale.

Rotherham’s Daniel Nardiello is 5/1 (Skybet) to notch first as the Millers tackle Torquay.
