Backing the Blades to win an end-to-end clash

You'll find very few football fans who disagree that Sheffield United are favourites to win this game. The trouble is, the odds on them to do so are pretty dull at less than 1/2 (1.50). In order to still back the Blades to progress, we wanted to turn they screw on the odds a little further so have paired a Sheffield United win with a both teams to score prediction. Why? Well, the first element is simple. It is very likely that Sheffield United will be a Premier League team next season. Wrexham meanwhile are a National League team. The quality between their squads is undeniable. As for both teams scoring, Wrexham have netted in each of their last 14 games including bagging three in the first clash.

Wrexham to score

We might not foresee Wrexham having the Hollywood ending to their FA Cup script but a good blockbuster always has twists and turns. We think this game will mirror that with the underdogs finding the net with an over 0.5 goals haul. They are, as we've touched on, are on a good scoring run and they're bagging goals with consummate ease too having netted 13 goals across their past five games. It's also worth noting that they've scored seven goals against Championship opposition this season across two games.

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: 1/2 (1.50) – 67%

Draw odds: 7/2 (4.50) – 22%

Wrexham odds: 5/1 (6.00) – 17%

The bookies have Sheffield United close to nailed on for a win in this game but there will be a whole host of romantics desperate to see Wrexham overcome their long odds to advance to the next round; it does feel like their best opportunity to do so would have been last time out where they held home advantage. A market that is a bit of a surprise is the total goals market; the game is heavily odds on to go under 3.5 goals, which is significantly softer than the 3-3 played out last time.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Sheffield Utd vs Wrexham

Sheffield Utd

The bread and butter of this season for Sheffield United is unquestionably the Championship. That being said, they'll still want to advance in this competition and a home clash against non-league opposition is a great chance for them to do so. As for a selected lineup, it's highly plausible they name the same XI that started last time – minus Dan Jebbison who is suspended.

Predicted lineup – Davies, Basham, Egan, Ahmedhodzic, Bogle, McAtee, Norwood, Doyle, Osborn, McBurnie, Sharp

Wrexham

Wrexham pushed the Blades really, really close last time out and, despite now being away from home, will believe they can harm them again here. With such a good performance last time out, why would they make major changes here. They know they can be a match for Sheffield United if things align.

Predicted lineup – Howard, Forde, Hayden, Tozer, Tunnicliffe, McFadzean, Young, O'Connor, Lee, Mullin, Palmer

Player to watch

We've backed Sheffield United to win this game but it's Wrexham's Paul Mullin we want to highlight here. Mullin has scored in five of his last six games – including against both Coventry in round three and in the first clash between these sides. Can he hit the net again?
