Sheffield picked up their first win after four matches after they secured a 3-2 win over Brentford on the road. Leon Clarke made the most-defining impact after grabbing the match-winner in the 72nd minute of the game.
Meanwhile, Leeds secured a second league triumph on the bounce after they picked up a 1-0 result against Reading in their home turf. Stuart Dallas netted the only goal of the game right at the hour mark.
The previous meeting between the sides was at Bramall Lane in February where Sheffield bagged a 2-1 win. Billy Sharp starred for the hosts with a goal in either half. Our betting tips and predictions fancy a Sheffield win.

Leeds are priced at 3.10 for a third-straight league win but we are not expecting this outcome owing to their mixed run of form on their travels. Leeds have not quite exhibited the dominance when it comes to the away games this campaign and this should offer Sheffield with an advantage given that they are unbeaten in their home patch since the season opener. The hosts also possess a dominant head-to-head record against Leeds and are undefeated at Bramall Lane since 1992. Our preview is to go for a Sheffield win.

Correct Score odds
Sheffield have been consistently on the scoresheet and they have netted in four of their previous five games at their stadium, keeping two clean sheets. Leeds have impressed on the road with at least one goal in each of their away matches but of late, they have been vulnerable at the back, having conceded seven times from just three games. We are anticipating both teams to find the net but the hosts may edge the encounter amid Leeds’ recent defensive woes on the road. Our correct score prediction would back a Sheffield 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
In the 2017-18 season, the encounters between the sides were high-scoring with both matches witnessing more than two goals. More of the same can be predicted this weekend with both teams possessing players, who can genuinely find the net, while Leeds’ backline has struggled to hold up in recent away matches. Our total goals prediction is to go for more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Sheffield’s leading scorer Billy Sharp has gone without scoring for four league matches but we are still predicting him to open the scoring this weekend. The 32-year-old has already netted 10 goals in 17 appearances this campaign and he should fancy ending the recent goal drought after scoring three times against Leeds last season. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Sharp.
