Blackpool vs Sheffield Utd: Top Free Betting Tips

Sheffield United cannot afford to drop points from the bottom of the Championship table. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

It is true that Sheffield's most recent games were goal-packed but right now, we expect quite the opposite from the match against Blackpool. They are one of the weakest teams in the league and completely out of shape right now. Almost all of Sheffield's away games this season ended with less than 2.5 goals – nine out of 12 at least. At the same time, four out of the last five games between these two teams ended with less than 2.5 goals.

Match Result Prediction: Sheffield United to Win

Sheffield United are one of the two top teams in the league this season and cannot afford to drop points if they want this direct promotion. Right now, they are in a series of four consecutive wins in the league while the opponents are struggling and have no wins in seven consecutive games in the Championship. Sheffield should be able to handle them with ease.

Correct Score Prediction: 0:1 to Sheffield

Sheffield should beat Blackpool without conceding a goal even though they did allow a couple in the last two games. On the road, Sheffield have had the best defense in the entire league and have conceded just 9 goals in 12 games. The majority of the away games ended with goals only from them.

Blackpool vs Sheffield Utd: Form, Recent Games, and News

Blackpool Preview

Blackpool only got back to the Championship a season ago and while they last the previous one, this one will be a serious difficulty. The team has been one of the weakest in the league this campaign and unless they improve immediately, there is a huge risk of getting relegated again. Their attack is not that bad but their defense is the 2nd worst in the entire league.

Sheffield United Preview

Sheffield United are trying to get to the Premier League desperately and their season to date has been almost perfect. The team has the 2nd best attack in the league with 41 goals in 24 games and the absolute best defense with only 21 conceded in the same number of games. There is already a huge difference between them, Burnley and all other teams, so as long as Sheffield continue to predominantly win games, they will get promoted directly.
