Live on Skysports 1: Tue 14.15: make Sheffield United 4/5 favourites ahead of their League One clash against Notts County.
A decent recent run has pushed Sheffield United into the automatic promotion reckoning and the Blades look set to start the crucial festive period with a home victory over Notts County.
Admittedly, the Magpies, Betfred’s 4/1 outsiders, are enjoying a solid season and are currently in the top ten but a dip in form has seen them win just one of their last eight so 4/5 chances, United should have the edge. Nevertheless, County are no pushovers and on that basis Skybet’s 11/4 for Danny Wilson’s men to nick it by one isn’t without appeal.
Ladbrokes chalk Wilson’s charges up at 7/1 to bag the only goal, a bet made more attractive by United’s recent defensive strength and the hosts’ recent spate of clean sheets also lends appeal to Blue Square’s 5/2 for the Blades to prevail ‘to nil’.
