Sunderland vs Sheffield Utd: Top Free Betting Tips

With the confidence of victory against Norwich, Sunderland hosts the next game of the EFL Championship against Sheffield United on Wednesday, 14 March. The Blades are preparing for this game after losing three points at home against Luton Town.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Sheffield United have been getting through a winless pattern in the away league outings and collected a total of only four goals in the last five attempts. On the other hand, Sunderland has also rattled the net only six times in the previous five games at home. In the H2Hs of these teams, three of the recent five meetings at the home of the Blades have ended with fewer than 2.5 goals. Given the current situation, we predict the same trend to be continued in this game. 

Both Teams to Score Prediction: No

The Blades have failed to hit the target in two of the last three league outings while they remained unable to rattle the net in four of the last five visiting H2Hs against Sunderland. The Black Cats have also managed to keep the clean sheet in two of the last four home outings. Additionally, Sunderland has secured an impressive scoring string by hitting the target in all of the outings this calendar year. So we expect only the hosts to be able to get on the scoreboard in this game. 

Correct Score Prediction: 1-0 to Sunderland

Regardless of a brilliant scoring string, the Black Cats have hit the target once per game in the last five outings. On the contrary, Sheffield United have faced three defeats in the previous five attempts but they have not conceded more than one goal in any of them. Moreover, Sunderland has scored only one goal in three of the recent four meetings with the Blades. Therefore, we predict only a 1-0 lead for Sunderland in this game.
