Bookies favour ‘goal Madine’ to strike first in derby showdown

Have your say

Sheffield Wednesday have kept back-to-back clean sheets and Victor Chandler rate the Owls at 11/8 to extend that sequence by restricting Chesterfield. Skybet chalk 2/1 against a Wednesday victory ‘to nil’.

But the Spireites are 9/20 via Sportingbet to scupper that wager by getting on the scoresheet at Hillsborough, where Stan James post 7/10 against both teams finding the net.

Betdaq offer odds of 1.7 (7/10) for the contest to produce three or more goals and Gary Madine, who has struck in his last four home matches for Gary Megson’s men, is 4/1 (Ladbrokes) to grab the first of those.

The Owls marksman is 11/10 with Boylesports to notch at any time and Paddy Power price Madine at 5/1 to grab a brace at least while David McGoldrick is 6/1 via bet365 to put Wednesday 1-0 up.

Spireites supporters can back Leon Clarke at 8/1 (Paddy Power) to open the scoring and bet365 quote the loan striker at 11/5 to add to his five goals for the club at any point.

At Don Valley Stadium, Rotherham are 4/5 (Partybets) to score at least twice against Burton Albion in a match that is 8/13 to generate a minimum of three goals and Skybet rate Alex Revell at 5/1 to be the man to fire the first.
