iBet: Sheffield Wednesday v Leeds looks to have goals in it

The Championship

Sheffield Wednesday v Leeds, kick off 7.45pm, Sky Sports 1

Lay under 1.5 goals at 3.8 to one with Betfair
Lay Barnet at 2.4 to one

Tonight’s televised game is one that looks on paper to have goals in it. Sheffield Wednesday are struggling – which is a surprise to many – and their problems are at the back. Only Burnley have conceded more than the 21 goals Dave Jones’ men have shipped in their ten games. But they have scored 14 times themselves. Sheffield’s five home games have averaged 3.6 goals and so have Leeds’ five away fixtures. The result is a hard one to call. Sheffield have only won two games, but they have both been at home and the bookies make them marginal favourites, with Coral offering the best price about a home win at 7/5. The draw is 5/2 and an away win 2/1. There should be a great atmosphere and there is always the chance it could boil over in what’s classed as a derby game between teams from South and West Yorkshire. If you think there will be a red card, you can get 5/2 with BetVictor.

Advices

Barnet have yet to win a League Two game in 12 attempts – indeed they have lost nine of them, shipped 26 and only scored eight. They look lay material at 2.4 to one in tonight’s 8pm kick off against a Northampton team that’s won its last two games.
