Sheffield United take on Millwall at the Bramall Lane looking to regain the second spot from Leeds United. The Blades lost a crucial advantage and slipped back into the third place after a disappointing result in the midweek action. United’s hopes of qualifying for the Premier League automatically now rest in the hands of Leeds. Meanwhile, Millwall remain with the fear of relegation as the team happen to possess only a two-point advantage over Rotherham in the 22nd spot. Four teams are fighting to avoid the final relegation spot. Follow all our predictions, free bets, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Sheffield United were held to a 1-1 draw by an impressive Birmingham City team at the St Andrew’s Stadium. The Blades have now managed just one win in the last three matches.
Millwall were held to a goalless draw by QPR at the Den. This was a very physical encounter that finished with QPR having the most shots at goal whereas Millwall had most of the ball.
The recent encounter between Sheffield United and Millwall took place at the Den with the Blades getting a 3-2 win. The last meeting between the two teams at Bramall Lane took place on April 14 with the two teams playing out a 1-1 draw. Our betting tips and predictions would go with a win for Sheffield United.

Sheffield United know that the possibility of finishing in the top two is now out of their hands. The Blades are one point behind Leeds United going into the final five matches of the regular season. The Blades have been unable to hold on to the second spot in the same manner as Leeds, but the midweek result will give extra motivation for Chris Wilder’s men to go for a victory. Millwall are a team with 13 losses in 20 away games this season and it would be unfair to expect a positive result. Our preview would pick a home win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The head-to-head games between these two clubs since Millwall returned to the Championship have largely – two in three – featured high-scoring games. Millwall were quite poor going forward in the recent game against QPR, but they are still capable of coming up with the odd goal. The Blades are expected to be hungry for goals and our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Billy Sharp is way out in front as the top scorer at Sheffield United with 23 goals, but his recent form has been mediocre with just one goal in his last eight games. David McGoldrick has experienced a better sequence of form with the midfielder churning out back-to-back impressive performances for the team. McGoldrick came up with a brace in the reverse fixture and our first goalscorer prediction would back David McGoldrick.
