Bookies bet against repeat of Owls goal spree

Have your say

Sheffield Wednesday smashed four past Huddersfield last weekend but they aren’t expected to repeat the feat at Walsall today, where bet365 price them at 9/1 to net more than three goals.

The match as a whole is 2.0 (even s) via Betdaq to produce at least three successful strikes and the first of those is 5/1 (Ladbrokes) to be scored by Chris O’Grady who helped himself to the Owls’ fourth last weekend.

Sheffield United have kept four consecutive clean sheets in League One and they’re 6/4 with Paddy Power to extend that sequence to five in front of the television cameras as they host Notts County tomorrow. Skybet quote the Blades at 21/10 to combine that shutout with a victory at Bramall Lane, where sceptics can back the match at 3/4 via Partybets to see both teams find the net.

Given their recent defensive performances, it’s fair to assume that Danny Wilson’s men will break the deadlock, an outcome Sportingbet offer at 1/2 and Ched Evans is the man considered most likely to grab that opening goal, Betfred pricing him at 4/1. Richard Cresswell is a 5/1 shot at Totesport to notch first while Boylesports price the pair at 11/10 and 13/8 respectively, to get on the scoresheet at any time.

In the Championship today, Victor Chandler quote Craig Davies at 5/1 to put Barnsley 1-0 in front as they welcome Blackpool to Oakwell and following his brace against Leicester, Billy Sharp will be well backed at 7/1 with Stan James to open the scoring for Doncaster at Turf Moor, where Rovers tackle Burnley.

Chesterfield’s Jack Lester is 9/1 via Paddy Power to fire the opener as the Spireites visit Huddersfield and Boylesports quote Lewis Grabban at 5/1 to strike first as Rotherham play Macclesfield.
