What odds for goal-shy Sheffield Wednesday and Rotherham United to score?

Sheffield Wednesday fans aren’t exactly getting value for money where goals are concerned.

The Owls have struck just three times in their nine home fixtures so far and Ladbrokes chalk them up at 2/1 to draw another blank as they welcome Wigan to Hillsborough.

Winner.com quote an understandably slender 4/7 about the contest generating under 2.5 goals but despite their scoring struggles, Wednesday are bet365’s 10/11 favourites to bag the game’s first.

William Hill chalk Stevie May up at 11/2 to fire that opener.

Goal-shy Rotherham are expected to get on the scoresheet at home to Blackpool and indeed it’s odds-on at 10/11 (Stan James) for both teams to do so at the New York Stadium. Skybet rate the Millers at 4/7 to do so before the visiting Seasiders and Paddy Power offer 5/1 about Alex Revell putting United 1-0 up.

Elsewhere, bet365 mark 9/2 against a Devante Cole opener as Barnsley host Scunthorpe,

the same firm price rampant Eoin Doyle to continue in his rich vein of form by striking first for Chesterfield at Crawley and it’s 19/4 (BetVictor) for Curtis Main to break the deadlock as Doncaster go to Crewe.
