SHEFFIELD Wednesday’s last five home matches have all produced at least three goals and the Owls’ clash with Colchester is expected to follow suit, Betdaq offering 1.67 (4/6) for the two sides to find the net on three or more occasions between them.
Partybets chalk 3/4 against both teams finding the net at Hillsborough, where Gary Megson’s men are 11/5 (Sportingbet) to get on the scoresheet a minimum of three times themselves for the fifth home game in succession.
Scorer of Wednesday’s leveller at Bramall Lane last Sunday, in-form Gary Madine has to have a chance of contributing to the tally given that he has struck 11 times in 10 league games and he’s just 4/1 at Paddy Power to break the deadlock.
Boylesports rate the Owls attacker at 11/10 to notch at any stage and punters looking for heftier odds can back Ben Marshall at 10/1 with Ladbrokes to score first.
Matt Phillips meanwhile, bagged a brace for Sheffield United at Preston in midweek and Skybet quote the on-loan midfielder at 14/1 to put the Blades 1-0 up at Leyton Orient, where Ched Evans is 6/1 with bet365 for the opening goal.
In the Championship, Jacob Butterfield has been in decent scoring form for Barnsley and he’s a 10/1 shot via Stan James to net first as the Tykes visit Cardiff.
Alex Revell is 6/1 (Skybet) to put Rotherham 1-0 in front at home to Shrewsbury.
