Stadium: Bramall Lane

Sheffield United and Aston Villa have both been in fine form since the turn of the year and a close encounter is on the cards when they meet in the Championship at Bramall Lane.
It was 2-2 when these teams clashed in the midlands just before Christmas and we reckon it is hard to split them again here.
A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds
Sheffield United’s promotion prospects took a hit during December but they have rallied with a decent run of results in recent weeks.
In the league, the Blades drew with second-placed Derby and local rivals Sheffield Wednesday before securing a 2-1 success at Norwich.
United are now just one spot below the play-off places and have reached the fifth round of the FA Cup by beating Ipswich and Preston.
Chris Wilder’s side have averaged a goal per game over the five fixtures mentioned and we like 21/4 for a 1-1 stalemate here for our Sheff Utd vs Aston Villa betting tips.
A Look At Aston Villa’s Betting Odds
Aston Villa are fifth in the Championship, four points above the Blades, and eyeing a push for automatic promotion following four straight league wins.
After beating Middlesbrough, Bristol City and Nottingham Forest without conceding a single goal, Steve Bruce’s side eased past Barnsley with a 3-1 triumph last time out.
“We’re in with a shout and there’s a bit of confidence and belief coming,” commented Bruce that day. “We looked a very decent team at times.”
Villa confirmed their ambition with the capture of Manchester United’s England Under-21 defender Axel Tuanzebe on loan until the end of the season.
The visitors will be tough to beat and 18/5 for the scores to be level at half-time and full-time stands out from the Sheff Utd vs Aston Villa odds.
