Backing a draw
If you support Sheffield United or Barnsley then you won't be happy with this prediction because a draw is no good to either. Sheffield United have only managed one win in their last five whilst drawing two and losing two. Barnsley's form isn't drastically different either. The Tykes have won two, drawn two and lost one of their past five matches. The last five competitive meetings between the two sides are fairly balanced as well with both teams winning games and with two ending all square.
Both teams will score
Our final prediction for this match is that both teams will score goals. Sheffield United have seen three of their last five games end with both teams on the scoresheet. Barnsley can say the same with both teams bagging goals in 60% of their last five games. The head to head record on this market is strong too; each of the last three clashes between Sheffield United and Barnsley have seen goals for both teams. With both teams scrapping for points, it's highly plausible they'll both be amongst the goals here.
