What Trueform says for Sheff Utd vs Sheff Wed
Sheffield United have been in fine form on home turf in the Championship and are worthy favourites for derby delight when hosting Sheffield Wednesday.
The Owls must travel across the Steel City to Bramall Lane on the back of a run of four straight defeats, having conceded 12 times in those fixtures.
We’re snapping up 13/10 for the Blades to prevail and over 2.5 goals in the game as our top Sheff Utd vs Sheff Wed prediction.
A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds
United surrendered top spot in the table when below par in a 1-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest last weekend.
“This was one of those games where we haven’t come away with anything from a tight game,” said Chris Wilder.
“Our keeper hasn’t had much to do, but neither has their keeper. It was a low-quality game when you look at the good players who were on show.”
However, the Blades had previously impressed when beating Wigan 4-2 at this venue, with Billy Sharp bagging a hat-trick to reach double figures for the season in league matches.
That made it five wins and two draws from the last six Championship home fixtures, although only one of those triumphs featured a clean sheet for Dean Henderson.
A Look At Sheffield Wednesday’s Betting Odds
Wednesday are 10 points and 14 places below their neighbours in 17th after being hammered 4-0 by Norwich at Hillsborough.
The scores were level at the break but Teemu Pukki’s 51st-minute opener sparked a flurry of three goals in 12 minutes and Dennis Srbeny completed the second-half rout late on.
“Everyone can see we are not consistent enough in our defending work,” moaned manager Jos Luhukay.
“It was too easy, how we gave the goals away. You cannot win games when you give goals so easily away.
“We do not have the stability that we need. It was a very, very disappointing game for us.”
The Owls are usually better going forward, though, and have hit the target in six of eight away games this term.
They are fancied to grab a consolation goal again here and 333/100 for the Blades to win 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 from the multiple correct score market is added to our Sheff Utd vs Sheff Wed betting tips.
