Sheffield United v Tottenham prediction & betting tips brought to you by football expert Tom Love.
- Sheffield United have seen under 2.5 goals in 8/10 home games.
- Tottenham have seen under 2.5 goals in 8 of their last 10 games.
- Sheffield United have scored just 1 goal in their last 4 league games.
The much sought-after Sheffield United league win finally came midweek as they scraped past 10 man Newcastle courtesy of a Billy Sharp penalty. That victory came after a 3-2 FA Cup win against Bristol Rovers, so spirits will be lifted at Bramall Lane and Chris Wilder will be reminding his side of their win in this fixture last season.
Jose Mourinho has seen his style of play rear it’s ugly head in a few games of late, failing to get over the line in 5 of their last 6 league games. Trying to win by the odd goal is always a precarious game to play and there seems to be some mental fatigue setting into the squad at the minute. The North Londoners are on the drift and it’s completely understandable, but even at 8/13 they make little appeal.
Opposing a goal-heavy game looks like quite an obvious play but I’d argue that under 2.5 goals should be shorter than the 4/5 available. There may not be much in this one at all.
