Saturday’s Yorkshire derby between Sheffield United and Leeds looks set to be a feisty affair and that could play into the hands of the hosts at Bramall Lane.
The Blades have done well in such battles this season, securing four wins and a draw from five Championship matches against other teams from the white rose county.
A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds
Sheffield United go into this game on the back of two straight defeats, but they were against automatic promotion favourites Wolves and Aston Villa.
The Blades had previously claimed a fine 2-1 league win at Norwich and are still going strong in the FA Cup after seeing off Ipswich and Preston via 1-0 victories.
In fact, 11 of their 17 wins in all competitions this season have been by a one-goal margin, highlighting how Chris Wilder’s side are adept at coming out on top in tight tussles.
Looking at the Sheff Utd vs Leeds odds, 5/2 for the hosts to oblige in such fashion again is fair value.
A Look At Leeds United’s Betting Odds
Paul Heckingbottom will be in charge of Leeds for the first time here after Thomas Christiansen was sacked on Sunday following a 4-1 home defeat by Cardiff, which made it seven matches without a win.
The hope is that Yorkshire-born Heckingbottom will bring passion to the club and he declared: “I can’t wait to get started.
“It’s a big opportunity at a big football club and it’s something that you work hard for.”
Two players were sent off when Heckingbottom took former club Barnsley to Bramall Lane back in August, so Leeds are expected to show more fight than they have at times under Christiansen of late.
However, we still believe the Blades are in better shape right now and are adding 29/4 for a 2-1 home win to our Sheff Utd vs Leeds betting tips.
