Sheffield United have slipped down from top spot in the Championship to seventh place over the past couple of months, but that will be forgotten if they can do the double over Sheffield Wednesday.

The Blades secured a thrilling 4-2 success at Hillsborough back in September and have the high-tempo gameplan to come out on top again at Bramall Lane.

A great atmosphere is assured at the Steel City derby and we’re on the home fans to leave happy at 4/5 in our Sheff Utd vs Sheff Wed betting predictions.

A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds

United have only won one of their last nine league games but will take plenty of heart out of a 1-0 FA Cup triumph at Ipswich on Saturday, even if both teams made changes.

“The consistency of the attitude by my team pleased me immensely and I really enjoyed it,” beamed Chris Wilder.

“It wasn’t a free-flowing performance but it just shows what our players are all about; that they pull a shirt on and they want to win.”

Although in freefall in terms of their league position, the Blades have only had one poor result in four games in this division, when upset by Bolton at this venue.

Other than that, United have beaten Sunderland 3-0 here and claimed score draws at Aston Villa and Derby.

That form is strong enough to see off the struggling Owls and we like 39/20 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game for our Sheff Utd vs Sheff Wed betting tips.

A Look At Sheffield Wednesday’s Betting Odds

After making the play-offs for the past two seasons, Wednesday are down in 16th this term, nine places and 12 points adrift of their local rivals.

The Owls parted company with manager Carlos Carvalhal on Christmas Eve following a run of three straight defeats and seven games without a win.

Caretaker boss Lee Bullen started out with a 3-0 triumph at Nottingham Forest, but a 2-0 loss at Brentford and 3-0 defeat against Bolton soon brought Wednesday back down to earth.

Former Hertha Berlin, Stuttgart and Borussia Monchengladbach boss Jos Luhukay now takes charge following a goalless draw at Carlisle in the FA Cup.

The Dutchman has a good record of getting teams promoted in Germany but may take time to learn about the English game.

His arrival should inspire a more upbeat display from the Owls, but we still like 3/1 for a home win and both teams to score from the Sheff Utd vs Sheff Wed odds.
