Sheffield United vs Tottenham Betting Tips
Sheffield United face off with Tottenham Hotspur at Bramall Lane on Sunday. The Blades are coming off of their first victory of the season as they defeated Newcastle United 1-0 thanks to a Billy Sharp penalty. Chris Wilder’s team are now nine points from safety and go up against a sputtering Tottenham Hotspur.
Jose Mourinho’s team drew 1-1 against Fulham in midweek. After originally being set to play Aston Villa, Tottenham Hotspur’s fixture was changed due to the outbreak of COVID-19 at Villa Park. After going ahead through Harry Kane, Spurs failed to crack on and allowed an Ivan Cavaliero goal. The draw left Mourinho fuming especially after claiming Scott Parker should have played a “weakened side”.
Now, Mourinho needs a response from his team. Tottenham Hotspur are sixth in the league going into matchday 18 and two points off of the Champions League qualification places. Just six points separate Spurs from the top of the table. They could pull closer this weekend with a win and Manchester United dropping points away to Liverpool.
Despite drawing in midweek, Spurs are unbeaten in three straight games taking five points from nine on offer. Sheffield United have taken just five points all season. It is too early to say Wilder’s team have had a revival. They did claim an FA Cup third round win versus Bristol Rovers last weekend and confidence could be growing at Bramall Lane.
Sheffield United vs Tottenham Hotspur Betting Odds
Tottenham Hotspur were shocked 3-1 at Bramall Lane last season. With Sheffield United improving suddenly with wins in all competitions and Spurs sputtering, could we see another upset when these teams meet? Mourinho’s team are favourite to win at full-time when the clubs play. Tottenham Hotspur are at odds of 6/10 to claim a win at full-time versus Sheffield United.
In spite of being favourite, Tottenham Hotspur have not won any of their last four road games in the Premier League. They took three points from their last four road matches as three of those games ended in draws. Overall, Spurs have taken 15 points from a possible 24 on offer. They have outscored opponents 16-7 on their travels.
Sheffield United have the league’s worst home points total. However, four of their five points this season have come at Bramall Lane. They have scored a paltry five goals while allowing 12 to opponents. Sheffield United are at odds of 21/4 to win at full-time when they play Spurs on Sunday.
The Blades took four points from six overall last season versus Tottenham Hotspur. They outscored the Londoners 4-2 over the course of 180 minutes of football. The clubs are at odds of 3/1 to finish in a draw.
Sheffield United vs Tottenham Hotspur Team News
Wilder will be without the services of defensive midfielder Sander Berge. The former Genk man is suffering from a knock. Jack O’Connell remains sidelined as well with a knock of his own. He is due back at the end of the month. Joining the duo on the sidelines is Jack Robinson. He has an issue that has not been disclosed going into the weekend. Oliver McBurnie’s participation will be decided on closer to match time.
The Sheffield United boss will get Enda Stevens and George Baldock back from their injury issues. Both players have returned to training and should have a place in the team.
Mourinho has two players on his injury list ahead of the clash at Bramall Lane. Giovani Lo Celso is still out of action with thigh strain. Steven Bergwijn is likely to remain sidelined after sustaining a knock. He could still make it back in time, but as it stands, is a doubt.
News out of north London today surrounds Dele Alli, who was left on the bench for the entire match versus Fulham. The midfielder later took to social media to “complain” about not getting on the pitch. Alli has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain this month but looked to be back in Mourinho’s plans after last weekend’s FA Cup third round win.
Sheffield United vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction
Both teams to score: NO @ 20/23 - BET NOW
Although Sheffield United have won back-to-back matches in all competitions, their streak could come to an end this weekend at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur. Tottenham Hotspur’s defence has been good at times this term conceding just nine goals to opponents away from home. Sheffield United have tallied a mere five goals at home. Spurs should keep the Blades at bay.
Harry Kane to score anytime @ 10/11 - BET NOW
Harry Kane scored his 11th goal of the season in midweek versus Fulham. He now has 11 goals and 11 assists in 17 matches in the Premier League. Kane has now scored a goal in each of his last two matches in the Premier League. The striker is staying fit this season – so far – and could have one of his best seasons in front of goal. He is also creating goals – mostly for Son Heung-min -- and could rival Kevin De Bruyne as the best creative player in 2020-21.
Tottenham Hotspur to win both halves @ 10/3 - BET NOW
Forget Tottenham Hotspur dropping points last season against Sheffield United in both games last season – and their loss at Bramall Lane. Spurs should be far better this weekend against Sheffield United than they were last term. Sheffield United are coming off of a 1-0 win versus a 10-man Newcastle United. So, let’s pump the breaks on the Blades grabbing another victory.
Tottenham Hotspur have won both halves in three of their last four matches in all competitions. They have the attacking talent to overcome Sheffield United away and end their two-match unbeaten run versus the Blades.
Mourinho should get a response from his team this weekend. Sheffield United’s last two wins came against a lower league side and a 10-man team. Their luck should run out this weekend as Spurs claim a victory away from home.
