Leicester have a number of injuries to contend with ahead of their EFL Cup second-round tie and Sheffield United look good value to take advantage.
Centre-backs Wes Morgan and Robert Huth have been ruled out while a number of other players, including Danny Drinkwater and Kelechi Iheanacho, are also absent.
The Foxes will have one eye on Saturday’s Premier League clash with Manchester United so odds of 3/1 for a home win look too good to turn down in our Sheffield United vs Leicester betting predictions.
A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds
The Blades have had a mixed start to the season, winning all three home games but failing to pick up a point or score a goal in two tough away matches at Middlesbrough and Cardiff.
They are now unbeaten at Bramall Lane in 11 games and regardless of what team Chris Wilder puts out, they will fancy their chances on home soil.
Wilder said: “We come in as underdogs but there’s been plenty of occasions in the past where we’ve come in as underdogs and turned that situation around.”
United are also expected to make several changes, with Ched Evans set to start up front, and that could mean a high-scoring game after beating Walsall 3-2 in the previous round.
For bigger odds, go for a United win and at least three goals in the game at 5/1.
A Look At Leicester’s Betting Odds
The Premier League will undoubtedly be Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare’s main focus this season and he could be forgiven for focusing on the weekend meeting with Jose Mourinho’s men.
It seems unlikely that many of his key players will be risked but Leicester should have the strength in depth up front to cause United’s defence problems.
The last of our Sheffield United vs Leicester betting tips is both teams to score at 7/10.
