Yeovil v Sheff Utd: Narrow Glovers win to ensure extra-time
Yeovil will welcome Sheffield United to Huish Park on the wrong end of a 1-0 aggregate scoreline, as 7/5 chances to ensure the pair trade 90-minute play-off victories over each other.
And backing this outcome would appear the likeliest way to turn a profit in match betting markets, even if the 15/8 Blades succeeded on this ground during the regular League One season.
But with away goals irrelevant in this tie, betting on extra-time to ensue may be a fruitful method for punters to follow, and 10/3 is the price that Yeovil prevail by a single goal in normal time.
Such a bet would have brought rewards in 12 of the Glovers’ 19 regular-season triumphs this term, with a majority seven of those occasions coming on their own turf.
Meanwhile, as 100 per cent of those 12 one-goal victories came via a 1-0 or 2-1 scoreline, there looks to be scope to coupled correct score betting in this match.
Gary Johnson’s men are 19/5 to succeed by either of the aforementioned scorelines, whilst those results in favour of the hosts can be backed singularly at 13/2 and 8/1 respectively.
Those who wish to utilise Ladbrokes’ unique total result markets though, would be advised to invest in a low-scoring home success.
Three of the host’s past five triumphs have involved three goals or less, and with two of those coming at Huish Park, a Yeovil win involving less than 2.5 strikes looks the call against a side that has notched only once in their last four outings.
And that statistic could feasibly tempt some punters to indulge in goal markets also, with Johnson’s charges possibly overpriced at 2/1 to keep a clean sheet.
Those who like those odds though, should love the heftier 33/10 that the Glovers prevail without conceding, as they have done on 12 seasonal occasions in the league.
