Sheffield United vs Leeds Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

It's an all-Yorkshire affair on Saturday as the Blades look to leapfrog Marcelo Bielsa's men and into the automatic promotion spots at Bramall Lane

Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds United face one of their toughest challenges so far this season with a trip to Bramall Lane.

The Whites currently sit second in the Championship after their 1-0 win against Reading on Tuesday night, with Stuart Dallas scoring his first goal of the season.

Sheffield United quickly recovered from their disappointing 2-2 draw against Rotherham with victory against Brentford midweek, meaning they are now just three places and two points below Leeds in the table.

Team news

Leeds have a handful of players missing for this game with Gaetano Berardi, Patrick Bamford and Luke Ayling all missing out. Izzy Brown may make his first appearance since his ACL injury in January.

On the other hand, Sheffield United have a full squad available.


Leeds can count themselves lucky to come away with three points against Reading after a late Bailey Peacock-Farrell penalty save secured victory at Elland Road.

This game should be an entertaining one to say the least, with two of the most expansive and entertaining managers in the Championship facing off for the first time.

Chris Wilder has worked wonders with Sheffield United with his attacking style during his tenure, seeing the Blades score 32 goals this season.

Their tally of 32 is matched by Leeds, making them the joint-second highest scoring teams in the league. Both sides have their eyes on promotion and by full-time on Saturday one of these teams will be in the top two.


With two teams who excel going forward whilst faltering at the back facing off, both teams to score at 4/6 (1.67) with bet365 looks like it could be a banker. 

Following that trend, over 2.5 goals at 10/11 (1.91) appears to have the best value in this game.

Games Leeds have been involved in this season have seen this land 52.5 per cent of the time whereas Sheffield United have had over 2.5 goals 57.8% of the time - including in both of their last two.

With fatigue setting in after tough midweek games as well as both having a chance to finish the day in the automatic promotion spots, goals should flow in this match.

Odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
