Competition: Premier League
Market: Sheffield United win
Odds: 4/6 @ Bet 365
Now dreaming of securing what would be a famous European finish this season, a high-flying Sheffield United will welcome Bournemouth to Bramall Lane on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, recording another clean sheet and picking up a 1-0 win away at Crystal Palace last weekend, Sheffield United have cemented their spot in the Premier League surprise package this season. Opening the weekend in sixth and still just five points adrift of the Champions League spots, the Blades’ 1-0 defeat against Man City is their sole defeat since the 2nd of January. With the mood around Bramall Lane at a continued high Chris Wilder’s men also have a growing reputation for their rugged displays on home soil. Already taking points off of Manchester United and Arsenal in front of their own supporters, there is no doubt that Sunday’s hosts should be confident of extending that tally this weekend.
As for the visitors, picking up what could be a crucial 2-1 win over fellow scrappers Aston Villa last weekend and now landing back-to-back victories, Bournemouth are simply desperate to find a route away from the drop zone. However, while Eddie Howe’s side might be finding some much-needed stability at the Vitality, Sunday’s guests have a growing reputation for their struggles away from the South Coast. Still holding just a two-point buffer over the drop zone, Bournemouth have lost their last three matchups on the road, including a humiliating 4-0 hammering away at leading relegation contenders West Ham on New Year’s Day. Also winning just one of their last nine matchups on the road across all formats, Sunday could prove to be another tricky test for the Cherries.
