Even stevens

These sides might be sat towards different ends of the Championship table but we see Stoke getting a point here as we make the prediction of a draw. On pure form, Sheffield Utd are unbeaten in eight games winning seven and drawing one whilst Stoke have won just two of their last five. When you look at the Potters away form though you might understand why we think they can take a point; they've lost only two of their last 10 away games.

Going over 2.5 goals

Our second prediction for this game sees us backing over 2.5 total goals. Sheffield United have seen three of their last five home games go over the 2.5 mark with a total of 17 goals seen; that's an average of 3.4 per match. Stoke meanwhile have gone over the 2.5 mark in each  of their last three away games producing a total of 10 goals. On top of that, these two have produced at least three goals in four of their last five head to head meetings at Bramall Lane.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game and how might that impact your view of our predictions? Let's find out.

Sheffield Utd odds: 3/4 (1.75) – 57%

Draw odds: 8/3 (3.67) – 27%

Stoke odds: 15/4 (4.75) – 21%

Sheffield United arrive into this game as odds on favourites and, based on the odds, the idea of a Stoke win isn't something the bookies see happening with a home/draw double chance bet priced up at a lowly 1/5 (1.20). If the bookies are sure of that, they're less convinced about what will happen in respect of total goals. Both the under and over 2.5 odds are odds on.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Sheffield Utd vs Stoke

Sheffield Utd

Sheffield United have a few players sidelined with injuries right now, most notably Rhian Brewster and Rhys Norrington-Davies. Despite that, they're flying high and in good form and will be able to name a very strong XI for this game. Amongst those to return after last weekend's cup rest will be Billy Sharp and Anel Ahmedhodzic.

Predicted lineup – Foderingham (GK), Clark, Egan, Ahmedhodzic, Baldock, Stevens, Doyle, Norwood, Berge, Sharp, Nidiaye

Stoke

It will be interesting to see how Stoke approach this game. They fielded a side littered with changes last week in the FA Cup but impressed as they eased past Hartlepool. Obviously, they play at a much lower level but any of those fringe players have earned a league start? One or two could keep their place.

Predicted lineup – Bonham (GK), Wilmot, Souttar, Fox, Clarke, Thompson, Baker, Tymon, Powell, Delap, Campbell

Player to watch

We've made the prediction that Sheffield United draw this game but a player such as Iliman Ndiaye could prove a difference maker hence he's our player to watch. The 22-year-old has been in sensational form for the Blades this season scoring nine goals but, actually, it's his assists that are most eyecatching. He ‘only' has seven for the season but six of them have come in his last six appearances. He was also at the World Cup with Senegal where he provided an assist against Qatar and played 45 minutes versus England.
