Betting: High-scoring Blades 250-1 for repeat result

Have your say

Sheffield United’s eventful 5-3 victory over Bournemouth sees them fifth and unbeaten in League One but they have drawn both away matches and BetVictor make them 13/5 to pick up a third away stalemate as they head to Scunthorpe.

The Iron are 3/1, courtesy of bet365, to inflict a first defeat on Danny Wilson’s men but the hosts currently prop up the table, having failed to pick up a single point and they come into this clash on the back of six consecutive defeats in all competitions.

The Blades should have the upper hand then and for the ambitious, Paddy Power price another 5-3 triumph for United at a whopping 250/1.

More realistic is victory by a one-goal margin (3/1, Ladbrokes) and with that in mind, punters might like the look of BetVictor’s 7/1 for Wilson’s charges to win by a solitary goal. Alternatively, it’s 15/2 via bet365 for a 2-1.

Buoyed by their emphatic 4-0 victory over Bradford City last Saturday, Rotherham United will be optimistic about picking up a positive result at Port Vale but are slight outsiders at Stan James, who chalk them up at 13/8.

The draw is 13/5 with bet365 and William Hills go 6/1 against a 1-1 scoreline. Skybet go 17/2 for Steve Evans’ team to win 2-1.

Chesterfield, with three draws from four matches and still awaiting their first win, are 13/5 with Bet 365 for another draw at York. They are 21/10 at BetVictor to come away with that first win.
