Betting Tips for the game
Sheffield secured their third straight league victory last weekend as they beat Bolton Wanderers by a convincing 3-0 scoreline. Mark Duffy, Kieron Freeman, and John Fleck were the goalscorers at the Macron Stadium.
Villa continued their unbeaten league run after they settled for a third successive draw. Ahmed Elmohamady appeared to have won the game versus Reading but they were pegged back by an injury-time equaliser from Sam Baldock. They have since suffered disappointment in the League Cup where Burton Albion beat them 1-0 in midweek.
Sheffield’s last meeting against Villa was at Bramall Lane in January where they suffered a 1-0 defeat. Back then, Robert Snodgrass netted a dramatic winner in the 90th minute of the clash. Our betting tips and predictions fancy Villa to return to winning ways.

Sheffield are given odds of 2.40 for a home win but we are not predicting this result. Sheffield have enjoyed a good run of form with three straight victories but their league record against Villa has not been great. Since 1992, they have faced Villa on ten occasions but out of those, they have managed to pick up just three points in the form of draws. Based on this, we are anticipating the Villains to edge the encounter as they possess the better strikeforce. Our preview expects a Villa win.

Sheffield United win odds: 2.40
Sheffield United and Aston Villa draw odds: 3.25
Correct Score odds
Sheffield have started the season on a positive note and they have netted at least two goals in three of their five matches. Villa have gone through a similar pattern and this should lean towards a high-scoring encounter. The hosts have not kept a clean sheet against Villa since an old Division One game in 1991. Our correct score prediction would back a Villa win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Despite looking a force upfront, Sheffield have generally conceded goals and have not keep a clean sheet at home in six matches. This season, they have been two league matches at Bramall Lane where 2-1 has been the common scoreline. Our total goals prediction is to go for over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Jonathan Kodija has been leading the scoring charts for Villa this term with three goals across all competitions. The Ivorian has managed over 60% of his attempts on target during this period whilst scoring the first goal on one occasion against Ipswich Town. The striker would be facing Sheffield for the very first time. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Kodija.
