Bookies tipping goals at home of scoring

Have your say

Sheffield Wednesday’s last four home games in the Championship and cup have produced a massive 21 goals and so it is fair to say that a total of more than 2.5, at 1.66 (4/6) with Betdaq, is on the cards as the Owls host Hereford in the FA Cup fourth round.

The Bulls have sold star striker Mathieu Manset to Reading but still pose a significant goal threat and it’s a clash in which both teams should find the net, an outcome Partybets price at 7/10.

Stan James make Alan Irvine’s men 4/11 to be the first team to get on the scoresheet and as Gary Madine is cup-tied, Neil Mellor and Clinton Morrison jostle for favouritism in the first scorer betting at 9/2 apiece with Coral and Paddy Power respectively.

Mellor is even money at bet365 to notch at any point, Betfred make Morrison 11/10 to do likewise but punters seeking slightly longer odds might instead fancy backing them at 5/1 and 6/1 courtesy of Totesport to grab a brace.

A small flutter on Gary Teale to give Wednesday a 1-0 lead meanwhile, will potentially return at 16/1 (888Sport) and the Owls winger is 11/2 with William Hill just to score.

With four in his last five, including a double at Gillingham in midweek, Deane Smalley is decent value at 8/1 with Victor Chandler, to open the scoring as Chesterfield host Bradford, although it’s Ladbrokes’ 4/1 shot Craig Davies that is considered the main first goal danger at the b2net Stadium.

Rotherham United’s Adam Le Fondre hasn’t struck the net in his last six matches, a lengthy, barren spell by his usual high standards but the Millers marksman is well fancied at 3/1 (888Sport) to put his side 1-0 up against former club, Stockport County.
