Betting: Goals more likely at Blades than Owls

Sheffield Wednesday clash with Derby tomorrow and the Rams defence has been a tough nut to crack this season.

We’re anticipating a low-scoring encounter and under 2.5 goals looks like the shout at 4/6 (bet365), while it might even be worth considering the under 1.5 goals quote of 2/1 (Ladbrokes).

On a similar note, the Owls are 9/2 (Paddy Power) to claim a victory to nil, and they might have to grind out a result against a visiting side that have conceded just five goals in nine away encounters. No goalscorer could be worth covering at odds of 7/1 (BetVictor).

Sheffield United’s home matches have been goal-filled affairs all season, with 38 scored in ten League One games.

Therefore, if you think the Blades will win today’s FA Cup clash against Oldham, it could pay to back them and both teams to score at 5/2 (William Hill).

Billy Sharp has failed to score in the past seven matches, although the forward is 4/1 (Stan James) to break the deadlock in this game, while Chris Basham is 25/1 (Winner) after finding the net at Oakwell last weekend.

Rotherham United are searching for a third win on the bounce and you can get 5/1 (Sky Bet) that the Millers win and both they and Wolves score this weekend.

There have been some crazy scorelines at the AESSEAL New York Stadium this season and the 10/11 (Paddy Power) offer on over 2.5 goals looks fairly easy to back, even if the Millers have kept consecutive clean sheets.

Barnsley sit bottom of the league but they’re unlikely to compromise their attacking instincts at the DW Stadium today. The Tykes have little to lose from sitting back and you can get 7/1 (bet365) that Lee Johnson’s team and both sides score in this match.

Conor Hourihane has scored in his past three matches and BetVictor offer 10/1 that he breaks the deadlock in this one.

Doncaster Rovers have the third round of the FA Cup in their sights tomorrow, with the match at the Abbey Stadium likely to involve plenty of goals. Both teams to score looks pretty likely at 4/6 (Ladbrokes), while it could be worth backing over 2.5 goals at 10/11 (bet365) seeing as Cambridge have been pretty goal-filled since Shaun Derry recently became manager.
