Sheffield United have been on a spectacular unbeaten streak with nine games without a loss – their best run of this campaign. However, extending this run could be little difficult considering that the team may be worn out by the exertions in the midweek win over Brentford. United had to play with 10 men for most of the match and they were chasing the ball for a majority of the game. Meanwhile, Leeds United were able to enjoy a comfortable midweek outing and they have also been quite good at home with four wins in five. Our preview would go with a win for Leeds.

Correct Score odds
Sheffield United may have enjoyed a majority of the recent successes in the games against Leeds United, but the midweek exertions against Brentford is likely to render them helpless going forward. Leeds United have kept three consecutive clean sheets but it may be difficult for Marcelo Bielsa’s men to extend this sequence. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Leeds United.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Even though the reverse fixture produced a game with less than 1.5 goals, Leeds United and Sheffield United have been some of the best attacking teams in the division so far this season. Both teams have scored 63 goals with only Norwich and West Brom managing more goals. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Kemar Roofe may be the top scorer at Leeds United with 14 goals, but Pablo Hernandez has been in good form of late. He managed a brace against Reading to take his tally to 3 goals in as many games in March. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Pablo Hernandez.
