Sheffield United hope to achieve promotion back to the Premier League after more than a decade when they take on Ipswich Town at Bramall Lane this weekend. Sheffield United will be able to effectively seal the second spot with a victory, as the team has a three-point advantage over Leeds United with a vastly superior goal difference. Ipswich Town, meanwhile, are preparing for life in the League One after relegation for the first time in 17 years. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Sheffield United were able to destroy Hull City’s impressive home record with a 3-0 victory on Monday night. This was the second successive victory for the Blades and it has put them on the verge of promotion.
Ipswich Town were unable to offer any joy to supporters in the penultimate Championship game at Portman Road for a while, as the team lost 1-0 to Swansea on Monday night. This was the third defeat in four games for Ipswich.
The previous game between the two teams ended up as a 1-1 stalemate. Sheffield United’s last home game against Ipswich was a narrow 1-0 victory with Chris Basham scoring the only goal. Our betting tips and predictions would opt for a home win.

Chris Wilder has done a brilliant job in order to ensure that Sheffield United capitalise on the inconsistencies suffered by Leeds United. The Blades have made it to the top two at just the right stage and at least matching the results of Leeds United will ensure Sheffield United’s return to the Premier League after more than a decade. Ipswich are unlikely to offer any resistance to Sheffield United’s promotion, but a victory should keep the Blades in contention for the top spot. Our preview would go with a victory for Sheffield United.

Correct Score odds
Sheffield United have been able to get five goals in the last two matches as the team has capitalised on poor defensive mistakes by the opposition. The Blades have come up with more than two goals per game on an average in the last six home matches while Ipswich’s defence has been left exposed in away games. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 3-0 home win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
It is incredible that the last high-scoring game between Ipswich and Sheffield United was back in 2011. However, this trend could be broken by this game, as Ipswich have been quite poor on numerous fronts. Sheffield United have players like David McGoldrick on song and they may be difficult to stop in the final home game of the season. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
David McGoldrick continued his recent form by grabbing a brace against Hull City during the weekend. These were the opening goals for the Blades, who also happened to get a goal out of the 31-year-old in the recent away game against Preston. McGoldrick’s only goal against Ipswich was in the 2010-11 campaign when he was playing for Nottingham Forest. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick David McGoldrick.
