Sheffield United blotted their copybook when beaten 5-4 by Fulham at Bramall Lane on Tuesday but are worth sticking with to see off Birmingham judged on their overall home form this season.
The Blades had won seven of their previous eight Championship fixtures at this venue and only Wolves have scored more times on their own turf out of the leading promotion contenders.
With Blues struggling on the road, we like 31/20 for the hosts to lead at half-time and full-time in our Sheff Utd vs Birmingham betting predictions.
A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds
Sheffield United had scored seven goals in back-to-back wins over Hull and Burton heading into their midweek clash with the Cottagers and again impressed going forward.
Striker Leon Clarke had netted five of those strikes and took his tally for the campaign to 12 with a midweek hat-trick, only for Fulham to edge out the Blades in a nine-goal thriller.
“I was proud of the players for the way we went for it,” declared United manager Chris Wilder. “I don’t want my team to go out the back door.”
Wilder doesn’t look ready to tone down his attacking tactics just yet, so 31/20 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game stands out from the Sheff Utd vs Birmingham odds.
A Look At Birmingham City’s Betting Odds
Birmingham suffered a fourth straight away defeat when beaten 2-0 at Middlesbrough on Wednesday, with Britt Assombalonga bagging a first-half double.
City have suffered from travel sickness all season, with their record now standing at eight losses and a draw from nine road trips, with 19 goals conceded.
“Goals are what we need to add to our game,” admitted Blues boss Steve Cotterill. “Maybe a bit of confidence and belief too, but goals are the main thing.”
The visitors should at least find the Blades more open at the back than Boro, so this is a chance for Cotterill to convince his players to be braver going forward.
