Sheffield Utd vs Preston: Top Free Betting Tips

Sheffield United takes on Preston North End in this highly anticipated Championship clash. Both teams have different agendas in this meeting, Sheffield looking to finish on a high while Preston remains in search of the elusive playoff slots.

Match Result Prediction: Sheffield Utd to Win

The Blades routed Preston in the reverse fixture, earning a 2-0 victory at Deepdale. They would be looking to complete the double to finish the season with the highest points tally for a runner-up. They have won their last three Championship fixtures with ease and should get a victory over the Lillywhites who are winless in the same period.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Three of the last five meetings between these sides have seen Over 2.5 Goals during the 90 minutes of action. Preston shared the spoils on two occasions and came up short in one of these instances. In their last five outings, they have scored 7 goals and will look to force the issue in search of a win. Sheffield has their own firepower to respond with and has scored eight goals in the same period. With both sides showcasing their scoring ability in recent outings and H2H duels, we are backing an Over 2.5 Goals conclusion to this Round 45 meeting.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Sheffield Utd

Despite differing results, both sides have scored freely in their recent outings. We should see goals at both ends of the pitch, more on the side of Preston given their comparatively poor defensive showings. The Lilywhites have conceded 8 goals in their last five outings while the Blades have shipped in three in the same period. Taking their goal-scoring and conceding form into context, we anticipate a 2-1 win for Sheffield United.

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

Sheffield United Preview

Sheffield United secured their return to the Premier League with a 2-0 win over West Brom. They have accomplished their goal of promotion, which took them 12 years each time in the past. Their next aim will be to break the Championship record points tally for a runner-up by winning their remaining games. Their recent victories have been impressive, with clean sheets and multiple goals scored against the Baggies and Bristol City.

Preston North End Preview

Preston will face Sheffield United, hoping to take advantage of any celebration fatigue. A win would keep their playoff hopes alive, but they are currently on a three-match winless streak and have suffered three multi-goal margin defeats in their last four away games. In all three of those losses, they conceded early and were trailing at halftime. Moreover, they have not won against the Blades in their last five attempts, losing on three occasions while sharing points in two 2-2 stalemates.
