Saturday is FA Cup 2nd Round day and you can get 5/4 () on the two Sheffield teams winning in 90 minutes.
Sheffield Wednesday are expected to progress to the third round oft he FA Cup as they welcome Aldershot Town as 1/2 favourites.
Owls fans will be reassured by an unbeaten home record in this campaign and their team should be looking to win by at least two goals, chalked up at 5/4 with Skybet, while the optimistic might fancy a bit of a drubbing and back Wednesday to win by three or more (3/1, Sportingbet). Paddy Power pay 11/10 for Wednesday to have the lead at half-time and hold it until full-time.
Across the city at Bramall Lane, Sheffield United also have League Two opposition in the form of Torquay United and Betdaq rate the Sheffield side as 1.53 (8/15) favourites.
Torquay, 6/1 with Totesport, will represent a trickier package than Aldershot but nonetheless, The Blades should have too much and will ideally avoid a draw (3/1, Ladbrokes) and thus an energy sapping replay on the South coast.
It may take a while for the breakthrough so backing a deadlock at the break could be wise, available at 6/4 with Betfred, while more exact punters might like the idea of 13/5 on a 0-0 half-time score. Betdaq offer a very backable 4.5 (7/2) on Sheffield United going onto win from a drawn first period.
Wrexham prepared ideally for this weekend’s FA Cup clash with Brentford by bouncing back to the top of the Blue Square Premier midweek and fans can be bullish about their chances, despite being 11/2 outsiders with .
Brentford, of League One, are short match favourites (8/15 with bet365) and are expected to progress with ease, Skybet notching up 11/8 for the Bees to win by two goals or more, but a rather underwhelming win against Basingstoke in the previous round does not reinforce that opinion.
Instead, Andy Morrell can have real belief that his team can take the game back to the Racecourse with a draw, 14/5 with Boylesports, while Stan James quote 12/1 for a third goalless affair in four away trips and it’s 3.5 (5/2) at Betdaq for Wrexham to qualify from the tie in any fashion.
