Today's Betting Tips for QPR vs Sheffield Utd

Sheffield United have a 100% record since the campaign’s resumption. Can the Blades maintain their scintillating run when they visit QPR on Monday? Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Sheffield United to Win

Sheffield United carved out their fourth win in a row since the Championship’s season kicked back into gear when they edged out Blackpool (2-1) last week and the in-form Blades look well-placed to keep the good results coming when they visit QPR on Monday. The Hoops were soundly beaten 3-0 in their last home assignment by Luton and a superior Sheffield United outfit should have enough class to leave Rangers disappointed on home soil again.

Both Teams to Score

Sheffield United have been stringing plenty of good results together to aid their pursuit of automatic promotion, though the Blades have had to work hard for points of late and both teams rattled the net in each of their last three Championship fixtures. United aren’t quite as water-tight at the back as they’d like to be and that makes another stake on BTTS an appealing choice at the prices on offer. Both teams registered when Sheff Utd last visited Loftus Road in April and the same outcome could be worth backing here.

QPR vs Sheffield Utd Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Monday’s Championship encounter between QPR and Sheffield Utd below.

QPR

Defender Leon Balogun is rated as a slight doubt for QPR with a slight ailment, while midfielder Stefan Johansen is also considered touch-and-go for Monday. Rangers dropped all the way down to 13th place following their disastrous 3-0 defeat at home to Luton in their last assignment.

Predicted Lineup for QPR: Dieng – Laird, Dickie, Dunne, Paal – Dozzell, Field, Ireogbunam – Adomah, Willock, Dykes

Sheffield Utd

Experienced defender John Egan is free to feature again for the Blades following a one-game ban. Rhys Norringhton-Davies and Jack O'Connell are out at the back, however. John Fleck is a big miss in midfield, while Rhian Brewster and Daniel Jebbison are out of contention in forward areas.

Predicted Lineup for Sheffield Utd: Foderingham – Ahmedhodzic, Egan, Clark – Baldock, Berge, Norwood, Lowe – McAtee, Ndiaye, Sharp

Player to Watch – John Egan

Club stalwart John Egan will be back in the matchday squad for Sheffield United on Monday and the Republic of Ireland international should bring extra stability to the Blades’ backline. As the club captain, Egan is a hugely influential figure at Bramall Lane and his Premier League experience is invaluable for United.
