Sheffield United - Burnley betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 16:00 on 23/05/2021 played @ Bramall Lane refereed by Kevin Friend

With a difficult matchup ahead of them, Sheffield United will need to focus if they want to bring in another 3 points. They are not overwhelmingly outmatched by any means, but they are generally seen as the underdogs compared to Burnley.

The visitors are not walking into an easy match by any means, but they should be able to come out on top. Winning this match will be a welcome boost to their rankings, though such an outcome is priced at 2.50.

While The Blades’s previous loss will hurt their Premier League standings, it shouldn’t have affected their confidence too much. After all, they were fighting against overwhelming odds as visitors, so the narrow 1:0 loss against Newcastle United isn’t exactly devastating.

Burnley’s latest Premier League performance against Liverpool ended in a harsh 0:3 defeat, though that’s not saying a lot about their current form. They never had much of a shot despite the home-field advantage, and their opponents dictated the pace of the whole game.

The Sheffield United side have been rather passive lately, with two unexciting matches with less than 2 total goals behind them.

It’s easy to spot a certain trend when looking over Burnley’s recent history – and not in a good way. Their latest appearances were marked by a high concession rate. For example, their previous 3 matches featured more than 5 conceded goals.

The match these two teams played earlier in the season ended in a draw. Overall, The Blades have a lot more reason to feel happy about that, being the underdogs in the matchup.

Both teams’ respective rosters have been heavily affected by a string of injuries. We won’t be seeing Jack O'Connell, Jack Robinson, Sander Berge, Oliver McBurnie, Billy Sharp, Jack Rodwell, Ethan Ampadu, Oliver Burke on the home side and Phil Bardsley, Kevin Long, Robbie Brady, Ashley Barnes, Dale Stephens on the visitors’. All said and done, though, the latter are still favourites.

The best thing to do in this game is to put down a Home Win or Draw Double Chance bet and feel fairly confident about it. All signs point to one of these two outcomes being the final result, and the 1.65 odds at Betsson offer decent value.

Betting tip (stake: 8/10): Home or Draw 1.65 at Betsson
