Sheffield United 10/11 to beat Brighton in Saturday’s Premier League matchup

Competition: Premier League

Market: Sheffield United win

Odds: 10/11 @ Bet 365

Knowing that three points this weekend could see them skyrocket into the top-four, Sheffield United will welcome Brighton to Bramall Lane on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, battling from behind to snatch a dramatic 2-1 win over Bournemouth at Bramall Lane last time out, Sheffield United have firmly cemented their spot as the Premier League’s surprise package. Winning their last three matchups on the bounce and with an FA Cup showdown on the horizon, Chris Wilder’s side currently find themselves sat just two points adrift of breaking into the Champions League spots. With the mood in their camp at a continued high and losing just a single top-flight matchup over the past seven weeks, there is no doubt that fans around Sheffield will be boosted by their most recent meeting against Saturday’s guests. When the two sides faced off at the Amex earlier in the season, the Blades picked up a 1-0 win on the South Coast.

As for the visitors, while Brighton may have managed to come from behind to snatch points off of fellow strugglers West Ham and Watford since opening February, Graham Potter’s men still sit at the heart of a relegation battle. Failing to record a single victory since opening the New Year, there is no doubt that the one-time Swansea boss will be most concerned by his side’s continued issues away from the Amex. Including shipping a trio of strikes in back-to-back matchups against the Hammers and Bournemouth, Brighton have remarkably landed just a sole Premier League win away from the South Coast in their last 13 attempts, a run that stems back to the opening weekend. With the mood in both camps at a polar opposite, we’re backing another home victory this weekend.
