Sheffield United v Man City, Betting Preview & Prediction

SHEFFIELD UNITED v MANCHESTER CITY – Click here to bet

Sheffield United are second from bottom on the table with just 1 point from their opening 6 matches.  They competed well against Liverpool away last time out, losing 2-1 and both teams have found the net in Sheffield United’s previous 3 matches.

Manchester City still have a game in hand, but they are currently 13th on the table, 5 points behind leaders Everton.  They drew 1-1 away at West Ham last time out and their previous away game was also a 1-1 draw at Leeds.  Both teams have found the net in 4 out of the 5 Manchester City fixtures this season.

City won this fixture 1-0 last season.

BETTING

Sheffield United 31/4

Draw 19/4

Manchester City 7/20

Suggested Bet:  Both teams to score, YES, at 8/10

City’s season has been characterised by defence that is letting more goals in than previously and although I see them winning this game I think Sheffield United can get on the score sheet.

Aston Villa v Leeds, Betting Preview & Prediction

Aston Villa put their 100% record on the line when they take on Leeds in Friday night English Premier League action.  We take a look at the game from a betting angle.

Villa narrowly avoided relegation last season, but they have been on fire since the new season kicked off, winning all 4 games.  Last time out they beat fellow high-flyers, Leicester 1-0 away and their two home games have been a 7-2 win over Liverpool and a 1-0 win over Sheffield United.

Leeds have made a promising if unspectacular start and sit 10th on the table, 8 positions behind Aston Villa and having played a game more.  They have won 2, lost 2 and drawn 1 of their 5 matches and last time out lost 1-0 at home to Wolves, but prior to that they drew 1-1 with City on the road.  They played in some high scoring fixtures early on with 7 goals in each of their first 2 matches, but since then the next 3 games have all delivered for under 2.5 goal backers. 

While Leeds are newcomers to the EPL it wasn’t that long ago that these teams met in the Championship back in 2018/2019 and this fixture was won 3-2 by Leeds with the reverse fixture drawn 1-1.

Aston Villa 13/10

Draw 26/10

Leeds 21/10

Suggested Bet:  Aston Villa win at 13/10

When a team like Aston Villa performs above expectations punters tend to expect them to come down to earth, but at 13/10 I think they represent a decent bet against a Leeds side that has performed well, but not to the level that Aston Villa has.  Villa’s 7-2 home win over Liverpool may have been something of a freak result, but any team that can beat Liverpool by 5 goals deserves to be backed at anything above even money in this fixture. 

I have a feeling that there could be goals in the game and I see Over 2.5 goals priced at 7/10, I am going to leave this alone, but if I was venturing into the goals markets I would be going Over 3.5 goals at 33/20.

Tottenham v Newcastle, Betting Preview & Prediction

TOTTENHAM v NEWCASTLE – Click here to bet

Tottenham bounced back from their home defeat to Everton to beat Southampton 5-2 away last weekend.  They face a Newcastle side that opened with a 2-0 away win over West ham, but went down 3-0 at home last week to Brighton.

Last season it was the away team that won on each occasion when the sides met.

BETTING

Tottenham 5/10

Draw 71/20

Newcastle 23/4

Suggested Bet:  Under 2.5 goals at 21/20

This fixture has been low scoring in recent years with only 1 goal scored in the last 3 matches Tottenham have hosted.

Sheffield United v Leeds, Betting Preview & Prediction

SHEFFIELD UNITED v LEEDS– Click here to bet

Sheffield United have battled at the start of the season and have lost both games, away at Aston Villa and at home to Wolves, they have yet to score a goal.

Leeds were very impressive in losing their first match back in the EPL 4-3 to Liverpool and they then came out and beat Fulham at home by the same margin.

BETTING

Sheffield United 7/4

Draw 47/20

Leeds 33/20

Suggested Bet:  Leeds win at 33/20

Leeds have impressed so far, but these are the sort of games they will need to win if they want to ensure that their first season back is not a battle for survival.  They have impressed so far and I think they can beat goal shy Sheffield United.
