SHEFFIELD Wednesday no longer have a 100 percent home record but they are still yet to lose at Hillsborough this season and on that basis, Stan James have installed the Owls as 4/6 favourites to secure maximum points against Leyton Orient.
However, the O’s, 9/2 outsiders at Paddy Power, have only lost twice on the road, drawing half of their away matches and after Gary Megson’s men failed to break down Brentford in their last fixture at home, sceptics might lean towards another stalemate, at 14/5 via Victor Chandler. Sportingbet suggest 14/1 to also finish goalless.
Bet365 post 11/4 against triumph by a solitary goal and it’s 7/1 courtesy of Totesport for the Owls to finish on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline for the third week in a row. Leyton Orient can nevertheless make life difficult for Wednesday, who are 7/2 with Ladbrokes to clinch victory following a level first half while supporters that expect a relatively comfortable afternoon, can head to the handicaps, where the Owls kick-off a goal behind at odds of 13/8 (Skybet).
Sheffield United’s derby clash at Chesterfield is priced at 3.6 (13/5) by Betdaq to finish all square but as the Spireites just can’t stop conceding goals, bookies are confident the Blades will win at the B2net Stadium, where Danny Wilson’s men are Boylesports’ even money favourites and Partybets mark 11/4 against a home win.
Paddy Power offer odds of 12/5 for United to take control fairly early in proceedings and subsequently possess a lead at the end of each half and Betfred chalk a 3-1 triumph for Wilson’s promotion-chasers up at 14/1. For home fans meanwhile, Boylesports assist Chesterfield with a two-goal start at 3/10 and Ladbrokes quote odds of 5/6 for John Sheridan’s side to either win or draw.
In the Championship, Barnsley go to Leeds and they’re 9/2 (Paddy Power) to make the return journey three points better off.
