What Trueform says for Derby vs Sheff Utd

Sheffield United are flying high at the top of the Championship table after four straight wins and are fancied to extend that sequence at Derby.

The Rams are capable of competing with any team in this division on their day, but have not shown the same consistency as the Blades.

Punters can get 33/20 for an away victory at Pride Park and that is our opening Derby vs Sheff Utd prediction.

A Look At Derby County’s Betting Odds

Derby looked to be going places last month when following up a 3-1 league win over Brentford by knocking Manchester United out of the EFL Cup.

However, the Rams then slipped to a disappointing 1-0 defeat at Bolton, before drawing 1-1 with Norwich and QPR.

Frank Lampard insisted a poor refereeing decision cost County victory at Loftus Road after leading through Jack Marriott’s 24th-minute goal.

Lampard was critical of a free-kick given in the build-up to Rangers’ equaliser and blasted: “We deserved to win the game and we didn’t.

“My players were very good, they gave absolutely everything and we lost points because of one decision.”

To be fair, though, the Rams did go ahead against the run of play and we did not see too much to fear from that display.

Looking at the Derby vs Sheff Utd odds, we’re happy to go with 4/1 for an away win and both teams to score.

A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds

Sheffield United needed David McGoldrick’s second-half penalty to see off basement dwellers Hull at Bramall Lane in what was not one of their better performances.

However, Chris Wilder felt there were excuses for a below-par effort at the end of a week which saw the Blades previously win at Millwall and Blackburn.

He said: “I thought after quite a bit of travelling for two away games that it may be a struggle for us. It was, but even so I think it was the right result.”

A fortnight off should have allowed United to recharge their batteries before going in search of a fifth road win of the campaign.

The Blades are well equipped to hit opponents on the break, with Billy Sharp bagging eight goals this term and strike partner McGoldrick on five.

Let’s finish off our Derby vs Sheff Utd betting tips by taking 19/2 for the visitors to prevail 2-1.
