3 It's a long shot, but…

Our correct score prediction for this game is Sheffield United to win 3-2, which you can find at a huge 25/1 with bet365. Whilst it a big price, this could be worth some money. Stoke have scored at least two goals in three of their last five away games and Sheffield have scored at least three goals in two of their last four home games.

One to Watch: David McGoldrick

The 30-year old Irishman started the season slowly with only one goal in his opening eight matches but now has four goals in his last four games and has helped to push United up to second in the Championship.

United host Stoke this weekend, who have struggled to keep the goals out and you would think McGoldrick will be his fancying his chances of adding to his tally.

Sheffield United vs Stoke Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Sheffield United host Stoke at Bramall Lane on Wednesday night in the Sky Bet Championship

In this Championship betting preview, we will be looking ahead to the game between second-placed Sheffield United and a struggling Stoke City. We will be searching through the markets to find some free football betting tips for you to use in this one.

Sheffield United’s impressive form towards the end of September and start of October had seen them win four games in a row and had managed to push themselves to the top of the league. The weekend’s defeat to Derby, however, has dropped them down to second place, but they face a Stoke side who cannot seem to put a consistent run of games together as of yet.

The away side looked to have got to grips with the league after two wins in a row, before going down 1-0 at home to Birmingham City, leaving them down in 17th. They have won just one of their seven away games this season and, in general, are finding it difficult to keep clean sheets. They have conceded 19 goals and scored just 17, showing how they are struggling on both fronts.  

Looking at some football predictions for this game, it is hard to back Stoke given their terrible away form and the fact that they simply cannot put a consistent run of wins together at the moment. Therefore, the even money on offer for Sheffield United to win this game is hard to ignore, especially on the basis that they have won four of their last five home games.

Another of our Championship predictions in this game is for both teams to score at 14/19. Stoke have scored in every game so far this season and have notched at least two goals in three of their last six away trips this season, showing they are capable of scoring goals despite not winning games. Sheffield have also seen both teams score in four of their six home games so far this season, and given United have the likes of Billy Sharp and David McGoldrick amongst their ranks, you would think goals will be the order of the day here.

Our final football prediction here is for BTTS and over 2.5 goals at 5/4. Both these sides have the ability to score goals, whilst neither keep many clean sheets. Stoke have seen this bet land in five of their six Championship away games so far this season, whilst United have seen the same bet win in four of their six games at Bramall Lane in the league so far this campaign.

Predicted Score: Sheffield United 2 - 1 Stoke
