Today's Betting Tips for Blackpool vs Sheffield Utd
Sheffield United can tighten their grip on their automatic promotion spot with a victory at Blackpool in the Championship on Thursday. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.
Sheffield United to Win
Sheffield United made it three wins from three since the restart when they overcame a potentially tricky test against Coventry on Boxing Day with flying colours (3-1). Only goal difference is keeping the Blades off top spot in the Championship and United can keep the pressure on Burnley at the summit with a victory over the division’s third-worst outfit Blackpool on Thursday. The host have taken just three points from the last 21 on offer and they can be opposed with confidence here.
Both Teams to Score – No
Sheffield United have won four times on the spin away from home and the Blades kept clean sheets in all but one of those victories. Blackpool meanwhile, have lacked menace at Bloomfield Road this term where they have scored just 12 times in 11 assignments. The Seasiders failed lớn register completely in each of their last three matches there and they could struggle lớn penetrate United’s well-organised defence on Thursday. As a result, a stake on both teams not to score is recommended at the prices on offer. There are some football tips prediction in this forum
