What Trueform says for Leeds vs Sheff Utd
Leeds can take a huge step towards securing automatic promotion to the Premier League by beating Sheffield United at Elland Road on Saturday.
These fierce Yorkshire rivals appear to be battling it out with Norwich for the top two places in the Championship table this season.
The Whites have already prevailed at Bramall Lane back in December and 11/10 for them to do the double over the Blades is our first Leeds vs Sheff Utd prediction.
A Look At Leeds United’s Betting Odds
Leeds looked to be faltering around the turn of the year but now seem right back on track following three straight wins this month.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side beat play-off hopefuls West Brom and Bristol City, before cruising to a comfortable 3-0 victory at Reading, keeping a trio of clean sheets in the process.
Now they have the chance to make a real statement of intent and Bielsa is relishing that opportunity.
“It is always special to play against an opponent that is near the top of the table and close to your rank,” he enthused.
The former Argentina and Chile head coach was honest enough to admit that Reading also had chances, though.
He added: “It was a fair result and we could have scored more goals, but we could also have conceded a goal.
“I don’t think that it was an easy game. Even if we dominated the game, Reading had chances to score, too.”
Looking at the Leeds vs Sheff Utd odds, we fancy 333/100 for a home win and both teams to hit the back of the net this time.
A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds
Sheffield United will certainly be no pushover, with Tuesday’s fine 2-0 triumph over Brentford taking their unbeaten run to nine matches.
Ollie Norwood scored a first-half penalty shortly before the Blades had Gary Madine sent off, but they stood firm and substitute David McGoldrick added a second late on.
Chris Wilder commented: “They gave everything and from a character point of view and the art of defending, that was right up there.
“We’ve got players who are disciplined and organised and want to keep the ball out of the back of the net.”
However, Wilder’s side had to put an awful lot of effort into that contest and the head coach admitted it was a relief to come through such a test.
He added: “We rode our luck a couple of times and the keeper’s made some wonderful saves when he’s needed to.”
That was an eighth straight home win, but the Blades have looked a touch more vulnerable on the road, only picking up maximum points in one of their last five away fixtures.
There have been some excellent draws during that period, but we still believe 33/4 for a 2-1 win to the Whites is the way to go here to finish off our Leeds vs Sheff Utd betting tips.
