Back Rovers With Sky Bet

27 September 2013

Sponsored by

Rovers scored twice against a strong Nottingham Forest XI last weekend but had to settle for a share of the points. Next up we face local rivals Sheffield Wednesday.

It’s the perfect time to face the struggling Owls, who haven’t kept a clean sheet all season and are still looking for their first victory. With no wins in seven in the league Wednesday haven’t shown us anything to suggest they should be 11/10 favourites for this clash so the 8/11 available with Sky Bet on Rovers or Draw in the Double Chance market looks a steal.

The signing of Federico Macheda on-loan from Manchester United is looking like a masterstroke from Paul Dickov. The Italian has netted twice in two appearances and will relish lining up against Wednesday’s leaky back-line. At 12/5 to score at any time during the 90 minutes he looks a great option to net his third goal in blue and white.

Other reasons to bet:

Rovers have drawn two of their last three away matches 23/10 

Sheffield Wednesday have conceded first in six of their last nine home matches 11/8

Both teams have scored in 7/7 Sheffield Wednesday games this season 4/5
