Sheffield United vs Reading: Top Free Betting Tips

A second-half strike from Oliver McBurnie allowed Sheffield United to take a point from their trip to Kenilworth Road. The Blades will have to perform better at Bramall Lane as an in-form Reading visits them.

Sheffield United to Win

Reading has registered three wins in succession to take pole position in the Championship. They have a tough task on their hands against Sheffield United, who welcome them at home on a four-match unbeaten streak. Three of the last four duels have finished in favour of the Blades and we expect them to make their home advantage count to further improve this statistic.

Over 2.5 Goals

Three of the last four duels have finished with Over 2.5 Goals and we anticipate a similar outcome from this meeting. Both sides will be eager to impose themselves in their bid for pole position, adding fuel to fire. It is Reading who will complicate matters given their slightly worse scoring efficiency but in the Blades, we have a side averaging around two goals per match in the 2022/23 campaign.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

The last four competitive engagements of Reading saw just one side hit the back of the net, the Royals keeping three clean sheets in the process. Sheffield has only kept one clean sheet in this period but has enough firepower to give Reading a horror time. With both sides scoring 17 goals between them, we expect fans at both ends of the pitch to have an exhilarating time.

Sheffield United vs Reading: Team News and Match Preview

Sheffield United

A strong start to the season has allowed Sheffield United to dream again. The Blades lost out on promotion during the playoffs last time and will surely look to be masters of their own destiny this time around. Paul Heckingbottom will be pleased with their standing but concerned with the increasing number of players under the medics' care.

Reading

Paul Ince was supposed to have the toughest task in the Championship. He has made little work of it as the early relegation candidates are leading the points table. The Royals have registered three successive victories, keeping a clean sheet at each time of asking.
