Sheffield United v Bristol City Betting Tips
This is big Championship action on Friday night as this is a top four clash. Sheffield United have failed to win any of their last three league games now, slipping to a D1 L2 record. They have conceded nine goals in their last three games as well.They are without a clean sheet in any of their last eight league games and both teams to score at Betfair in this one has to be a good option at a price of 8/13. The Blades have posted a very strong gW7 D1 L2 record at Bramall Lane this season and after putting together a four match winning streak where they have taken only the one point from their last two. They are scoring well still though and are averaging 1.9 goals per game on home soil this term. So over 2.5 goals for the match up has to be worth considering because this should be a really exciting match up between the two of these. The Blades have been winning at half time in five of their ten home games this season.
Top scorer for them this season is Leon Clarke who is the 6/5 anytime goalscorer favourite at Betfair with teammate Billy Sharp at 6/4. They do arguably have the better attack of the two sides, but they are facing a Robins side who are confident and playing some bold stuff at the moment. Running in the correct score market a Sheffield United 2-1 is in at a price of 15/2 with only the 1-1 draw trading at shorter odds of 11/2. The Blades have scored first in seven of their ten home games this season and are a force to be reckoned with still, but can they hold out defensively? The Robins have been producing so very well and the west country outfit did land a win on their last trip to Bramall Lane which was back in the 2014/15 League One season. They did lose back on home soil against them. The last time these two were together in the Championship was in the 2010/11 season and they traded home wins.
Bristol City are one of the surprise packages this season in the Championship and they just keep rolling on. They have produced a fine W10 D7 L3 record all season and they have won five of their last seven league games (D1 L1), scoring at least two goals in each of those victories. Three of their last four league wins have been by a 2-1 scoreline which may be worth considering in the Betfair correct score market. Bristol City have struck at least two goals in six of their ten away games this season and will stand toe to toe with the Blades. Defensively they haven’t been bad either with just 11 away goals conceded and they are currently a massive 10 points better off than they were at this stage last season. Bobby Reid is their top scorer this season and he is 11/5 anytime goalscorer option for the game. Overall Bristol City are W5 D4 L1 on the road this season and they can land a big statement by winning this.
Who will win – Sheffield United v Bristol City Predictions
Bristol City may be a bit of value to go and raid Bramall Lane in this one. The defence of the Blades has fallen apart a little bit and things just aren’t going their way at the moment and the Robins, who are in wonderfully confident form at the moment, can sneak a win in a game which ends up over 2.5 goals.
