Betting Tips for the game
Even a late fightback from Brentford was not sufficient to help Thomas Frank’s men get anything out of the match against Middlesbrough, who won 2-1. Frank has now been able to get success in just one game since becoming the Brentford manager.
Sheffield United failed to hold onto a lead twice against Rotherham United at the New York Stadium, as they were involved in a 2-2 draw. The Blades have registered a solitary win in the last five games.
The previous meeting between Brentford and Sheffield United produced a 1-1 draw at Griffin Park. Both teams had a man sent off in this fixture back in March 2018. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Draw at 3.40[/bet_tip_now]
Sheffield United are at 3.00 while Brentford are at a price of 2.50. Both teams have been struggling to replicate the form that they enjoyed a few weeks ago. The Blades are quite nervous about dropping out of the play-offs owing to a run of just one win in six. Brentford have not taken well to the managerial change with Thomas Frank able to get just one victory since replacing Dean Smith. Brentford’s best results have come at home but Frank may be quite pleased with a point from this match. Frank was quite complimentary about Middlesbrough in the recent match and Brentford may start the game with too much respect for the opposition. Our preview would back a draw.

Brentford win odds: 2.50
Sheffield United win odds: 3.00
Correct Score odds
Sheffield United may have a lot of the ball, but they may not be able to come up with enough correct decisions in the final third of the pitch to use that possession. Brentford have also been quite poor going forward and did not create any opportunity in the first half against Middlesbrough. Our correct score prediction expects a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The Blades and Brentford have been able to score less than 1.5 goals on average in the last six matches. Even though their defences have conceded more goals, the low confidence levels experienced by both teams coming into the game can be a damper. Our total goals prediction would pick under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Even though both teams have two players who have managed a combined 22 league goals this season, it is difficult to pick a forward who will find the back of the net since Billy Sharp and Neal Maupay have been struggling for great form. Yet, it is the latter who may have the edge. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Neal Maupay.
