Sheffield Utd vs Swansea: Our top betting predictions

Sheffield United left it late in midweek against Wrexham in the FA Cup but, ultimately, they got the job done and find themselves in the next round. Will that game prove to have been a distraction as they host Swansea? Find out with our Sheffield Utd vs Swansea match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Sheffield United to win

This game wasn't an easy one to predict from a match result perspective because Swansea, whilst they're not in the best form, don't lose too many games. In their last 10 away games they have only fallen to two defeats but, notably, they don't win loads either with just two wins across that 10 away day displays; that means they draw a lot of games. Sheffield United are a similar beast that don't lose very often; their last loss came back in November. We have, however, decided to hop off the fence and back the Blades to win. Since that November defeat they've only failed to win three games, which is a notably difference from Swansea. They've won the last couple of head to head meetings too.

Both sides will bag

Our next prediction for this game comes from the both teams to score market and we are betting on the yes outcome. Sheffield United have seen three of their last five games end with goals at both ends whilst Swansea haven't seen a ‘nil' in one of their scorelines this year – that means each of their last six games have featured goals at both ends.

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: 12/13 (1.92) – 52%

Draw odds: 5/2 (3.50) – 29%

Swansea odds: 3/1 (4.00) – 25%

Sheffield United come here as odds on favourites with a 52% probability of winning the game. Despite being much more fancied than their visitors we could see a few nibbles on the draw prediction given how few games Swansea lose. One area where the bookmakers are less confident in what will happen is the total goals market. Both over 2.5 goals and under 2.5 goals are offered at prices softer than  evens (2.00)

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Sheffield Utd vs Swansea

Sheffield Utd

Despite only facing non-league opposition in the week Sheffield United were made to work every second of the game and that will force a fair few changes from that lineup. Expect to see something much more closely aligned with recent league games albeit someone like veteran Billy Sharp has done themselves no harm!

Predicted lineup – Foderingham, Egan, Robinson, Ahmedhodzic, Norwood, Berge, Osborn, Lowe, Bogle, Sharpe, Ndiaye

Swansea

Swansea last game was a belter for neutral fans but re-watching it would have been a painful old experience with plenty of lessons to learn. With that said, we're not sure mass changes to the XI will be the answer for this game. We might see one change to the back four though with experienced Kyle Naughton getting a rare start.

Predicted lineup – Fisher, Naughton, Cabango, Wood, Manning, Grimes, Fulton, Cooper, Ntcham, Cullen, Piroe

Player to watch

Where key players are XI need it is really hard to look beyond Swansea's centre forward Joel Piroe. We've backed Sheffield United to win this game but keeping Piroe quiet will have to form a big part of their game plan because he is that good. He has five goal contributions across his past five games and, notably, three of them came last time out.
