Sheffield United v Leeds Prediction & Betting Tips – 10th February 20187th February 2018 / lee
Sheffield United v Leeds Championship, 10th February 12.15pm
This should be a great battle in this Yorkshire derby. Sheffield United have been of the boil again with back to back league defeats having been suffered. They are looking less and less likely to make a play off run at the moment. Leeds are pretty much in the same boat, drifting away from the top six and with wins hard to come by.
Sheffield United v Leeds Betting Odds*
Sheffield United 4/5, Draw 5/2, Leeds 7/2* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 3:30 a.m.)
Sheffield United v Leeds Betting Tips
The Blades have lost back to back games in the league against Wolves and Aston Villa, not easy games for them and it shows that they have really lost the quality to get themselves into the automatic promotion race again. They have fallen badly out of that and have a lot of work to do just to get to the play offs. They go into the weekend five points away from the top six. The Blades have taken only the one win in their last six league games now, which was out at Norwich in mid-January. Their last home win was a 3-0 victory over Sunderland on Boxing Day and that leaves them winless in three league games at Bramall Lane and with just a poor W1 D2 L4 in their last seven there. Each of Sheffield United’s last three home games have produced less than three goals in them so under 2.5 goals at Bet365 is at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 6th, 2018 at 00:11 a.m.) is worth a look.
The Blades did earn a 2-1 success out at Elland Road when these two met towards the end of October and that is back to back wins that they have taken over Leeds now. The Blades have actually lost just one of their last ten matches against Leeds in all competitions on, winning six of the games in that sequence. The Blades are unbeaten in their last seven home games against Leeds. Only one of the last five meetings between Leeds and Sheffield United have made it over 2.5 goals.
Just like Sheffield United, Leeds are looking less and less likely to get into the play offs. They are now on a six-match winless streak of form in the Championship, collecting just the two points in that sequence through 0-0 draws against Nottingham Forest and Hull. The problem for Leeds has been scoring goals as they have failed to score in four of their last six played, which may lend value to a Sheffield United to win to nil wager at Bet365 for 15/8 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 6th, 2018 at 00:11 a.m.). Leeds are winless in three road games now without a goal on the board in any of them and it really has all fallen apart for them. Again just a hint at a low scoring game, each of Leeds’ last three away games have gone under 2.5 goals. Over a third of the goals that they have conceded this season have come in the final fifteen minutes of matches.
Who will win – Sheffield United v Leeds Predictions
The draw should have the most appeal for this Yorkshire showdown. Neither are carrying the kind of form that they were showing earlier in the season and they are both just grinding things out rather than looking any particular threat. Draw.
