Tight At The Top
The Championship’s top four is tightly congested and a win for either side could have damaging consequences in the automatic promotion race for the other.
However, both sides arrive in decent nick and this should be no cagey affair with the divisions’ top scorers at home with Dwight Gayle back from suspension, while it’s not as if their visitors haven’t been amongst the goals either.
Defensive Frailties On The Road
The Blades have scored two per game across their last eight on the road, though they haven’t been able to replicate the defensive solidarity on display in home fixtures as their only clean sheets came at bottom-six stragglers Reading and Wigan.
In fact, they shipped two or more in half of these outings and also drew half of them too – with each stalemate seeing both teams find the net – including their last two road trips coming at top-half sides Villa (3-3) and Norwich (2-2).
West Brom v Sheffield United Betting Tips
Across all competitions, West Brom arrive with a W5-D4-L1 record from their past 10 matches over 90 minutes, as the stalemates came against better teams – leaders Norwich and eighth-placed Nottingham Forest, and twice against Brighton in the FA Cup.
However, aside from a pair of wins over bottom-six outfit Wigan, they’ve had seven stalemates in their last nine at the Hawthorns with all of them score draws.
The Baggies may have won three of four unbeaten matches with the trio above them in the table this season, but the most recent saw them draw with the Canaries, and their lack of victories against quality opposition on home turf recently leaves us unconvinced they’ll take maximum points.
