Sheffield United - Liverpool betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 20:15 on 28/02/2021 played @ Bramall Lane

There is a big reason why Sheffield United are given 8.00 to win this game. They stand little to no chance emerging victorious against Liverpool and anything but their defeat would be considered a miracle.

It’s hard to see this match going any other way than an away win. Priced at 1.42 with most bookies, this match is a fairly one-sided affair, and Sheffield United will need to give quite the performance if they want to get any points out of it.

The previous round brought a narrow defeat for The Blades. Betting predictions foresaw an uphill battle considering the home-field disadvantage and incredibly difficult matchup against Fulham . The first half went as well as can be expected, but Fulham pulled ahead as the game progressed and registed a narrow 1:0 victory.

In the previous round of Premier League, Liverpool welcomed Everton at their home stadium – and it didn’t end well for them. They were behind at half-time, and things only got worse from there, resulting in a 0:2 home loss.

A high concessions rate is not a good look to have, and The Blades have been on a downward spiral when it comes to their defensive performance. With 5 goals conceded over their past 3 games, there’s definite room for improvement.

A quick look at the visiting team’s recent history tells us a lot about their weaknesses. Specifically, we’re talking about the fact that they’ve allowed more than 5 goals over their 3 most recent Premier League outings.

The Blades are in an unenviable position going into round 26. They’re on their way to relegation and the time to move up is rapidly running out. Considering the odds online bookmakers are giving them for a win, though, they have a lot of reason to worry.

Liverpool are relatively close to the middle of the Premier League table, which is far from ideal They have a shot at reaching the Europa League thanks to the favourable matchup in this away game, but the qualification spot is still 3 points away.

The two squads already met this season in the Premier League. As expected, The Reds took the win, though the match was a bit close. Either way, The Blades have no history of beating the odds in this particular matchup.

Liverpool’s position as favourites is hard to question, but their roster has been battered by a string of injuries. They’ll have to make do without Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joël Matip, James Milner, Jordan Henderson, which will make things considerably more difficult than they would have been otherwise.

An Over 2.5 Goals is a great bet if you like staying on the safe side. The betting value for this market is strong compared even to the 1.67, which makes this an easy betting prediction to make.
