Today's Predictions for Huddersfield vs Sheffield Utd

Huddersfield have lost only one of their last eight league assignments ahead of their meeting with Sheffield United on Thursday. Read our top Huddersfield vs Sheffield Utd predictions for this week’s fixture.

Huddersfield Double Chance

Huddersfield are just one step away from safety following a fine run of just two defeats in ten Championship fixtures, and a victory for The Terriers on Thursday evening against Sheffield United would put them six points clear of the drop zone with just one game left to contest. With their Premier League promotion already in the bag, the Blades could have one eye on their summer holidays already, and as the less motivated team, their underbelly could be softer than usual. Town will be waiting to pounce and the first of our football betting tips this week siding with them in the double chance market.

Both Teams to Score

Neil Warnock’s decision to take the shackles off his Huddersfield team has reaped dividends in the campaign’s late exchanges and entertainment levels in the Terriers’ fixtures have also risen as a by-product of their manager’s switch up in styles. Indeed, both teams have scored in six of Town’s last eight Championship matches and we’re tipping the hosts to fight fire with fire again when they host the Blades. With that in mind, bettors are advised to consider a stake on BTTS again for the second of today’s Huddersfield vs Sheffield Utd predictions.

Let's take a closer look at the latest markets, Huddersfield – Sheffield Utd odds and probability figures ahead of Thursday’s contest below.

Huddersfield odds: 21/10 (3.10) – 32.3%

Draw odds: 37/20 (2.85) – 35.10%

Sheffield Utd odds: 34/25 (2.36) – 42.4%

The probability of a Huddersfield win this week has been set at just 32.3% by the market makers while a stake on over 2.5 goals on Thursday would net you a winner at 11/10 (2.10 – 47.6%). With Sheffield United listed as the expected winners, backing the Blades to score the first goal at 19/20 (1.95) might appeal to some bettors. That outcome has an implied probability of 51.3%.

Huddersfield vs Sheffield Utd Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Huddersfield vs Sheffield Utd lineups and team news for Thursday’s Championship tussle below.

Huddersfield

Huddersfield will be without the services of Anthony Knockaert, Duan Holmes, Oliver Turton, Kieran Phillips, Faustino Anjorin and Yuta Nakayama this week. Town earned a crucial 2-1 win at Cardiff City on Sunday to strengthen their bid for survival.

Predicted Lineup for Huddersfield: Nicholls – Pearson, Lees, Helik, Ruffels – Hogg, Rudoni – Koroma, Diarra, Headley, Ward

Sheffield Utd

Ben Osborn, Enda Stevens, Rhian Brewster, Rhys Norrington-Davies and Jack O'Connell are all out injured for Huddersfield United at present. The Blades thumped Preston 4-1 in their last outing, though three of their goals were dispatched inside the last 18 minutes of the contest.

Predicted Lineup for Sheffield Utd: Foderingham – Basham, Ahmedhodžić, Robinson – Bogle, McAtee, Norwood, Doyle, Lowe – Jebbison, Nidaye

Player to Watch – Jack Rudoni

Jack Rudoni has been an influential figure for Huddersfield in recent weeks, belying his age to run the show in midfield with the authority of a battle-hardened veteran. The 21-year-old was excellent again against Cardiff on Sunday and Rudoni’s impact could be critical again for Town on Thursday.

Official lineups are usually released approximately one hour before kick-off.
