Aston Villa will travel to Bramall Lane on the 3rd of February to take on Sheffield United in the English Premier League. Villa will rock up in Yorkshire eager to put their first home defeat in almost a year behind them, while Sheffield are desperate for points as they are currently propping up the table. Will Villa head back to Birmingham with the points in the bag, or will Sheffield cause them yet another headache? Read my prediction to find out.

🏆 Sheffield United vs Aston Villa: Who Will Win?

The Sheffield United board brought back Chris Wilder to try and save the Blades from certain relegation to the Championship, but I feel that they need a miracle to avoid the drop. They have 10 points from the 22 matches that they have played, and the 54 goals that they have conceded is 12 more than any other team in the division. They need three wins just to climb out of the Relegation Zone, and they only have two wins all season.

Aston Villa are sitting fourth in the Premier League table, which is a lot higher than anyone would have predicted them to be at this stage in the season. However, things seem like they might slowly be unravelling as they have only managed to pick up eight points from the previous 18 that have been on offer. Their fans will be a little bit worried after watching their performance during their 3-1 defeat to Newcastle at Villa Park on Tuesday evening. They have just not been the same team since their 3-2 capitulation against Manchester United.

As a Villa fan myself, I would love to back us to win, but we struggled to break down Sheffield United at home just before Christmas, and I would not be surprised if the same happened again. I am going to predict another draw, with the match finishing 1-1.

My Prediction: 🏆 Sheffield United 1 Aston Villa 1 ⚽

💯 Sheffield United vs Aston Villa Match Odds

Now that I have given you my prediction for this match, I shall now provide you with the odds that some established and new UK betting sites are currently offering for three popular markets in relation to this Sheffield United vs Aston Villa match.

Sheffield United vs Aston Villa: Match Winner Odds

Unsurprisingly, Aston Villa are the favourites to go on and win this match. When you consider the gap between the two teams in the table, you can see why Villa are odds-on to win the game. They have been one of the top performers this season, and have shown that they are capable of comfortably beating any team in the league on their day. However, their current form and profligacy in front of goal should be considered. Below are the match winner odds:

Sheffield United vs Aston Villa: Both Teams To Score Odds

The bookmakers believe that both teams will find the back of the net in this match, which is something that I tend to agree with. Sheffield United have the worst defence in the league, while Villa have not been keeping that many clean sheets as of late. If you want to put money on both teams to find the back of the net in this game, then check out the both teams to score odds in the table below:


Sheffield United vs Aston Villa: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

The bookies believe that the most likely scenario is that there will be three or more goals scored in this game. However, I do think this will be a repeat of the match between these two teams at Villa Park just before Christmas where Emery's men struggled to break down a stubborn and compact Sheffield defence. The previous 10 matches between these two teams have seen over 2.5 goals scored on 4 occasions. Below are the odds for the over/under 2.5 goals market:

✔️ Sheffield United vs Aston Villa - Betting Tips

Now that you know the odds that are being offered for three popular markets, it is time for me to provide me with some of my football betting tips for this Sheffield United vs Aston Villa clash.

  • Tip 1: Bet on a draw: Villa are the favourites to win this one, but I have been watching them closely as of late and the spark that they had earlier in the season seems to have disappeared. It could be due to the fact that the players are getting tired after having to play a lot of games due to injuries. I do not think this will be as easy for Emery's men as the bookies are suggesting, and I can see Wilder's men nabbing a draw. Although, I hope I am wrong. LeoVegas are offering *goto *LeoVegas-Sports [odds of 4.40]* for a draw.
  • Tip 2: Bet on both teams to score: Villa and clean sheets have not been going hand-in-hand this season, while Sheffield United are conceding 2.45 goals per match. I can see both teams getting on the scoresheet here, and you can find odds of 1.71 for this market at BetUK Sports.
  • Tip 3: Bet on Douglas Luiz to be booked: Many punters like to bet on players to be booked because of the enticing odds that are usually on offer, and if you fit into this category then I suggest that you consider betting on Luiz to be cautioned. He is no stranger to a booking and has a total of 9 under his belt this season. Betiton Sport are offering odds of 3.20.
  • Tip 4: Bet on a 1-1 result: If you like to bet on the correct score of a match, then my recommendation is to put money on the match to finish 1-1. 10Bet Sport are offering odds of 7.00 for this result.

1️⃣Sheffield United Update

Even if Pep Guardiola took over as Sheffield United's manager until the end of the season, I would still not be tempted to bet on them to survive the drop. They just do not have the squad depth and quality to perform consistently in this tough league and it will be one season and out for the Blades. I would consider it an achievement if they managed to finish anywhere other than 20th. When you are scoring 0.86 goals per game and conceding well over two, things are always going to be pretty dire.

2️⃣ Aston Villa Update

Aston Villa are currently sitting in 4th place in the table and will be looking to earn themselves a Champions League spot come the end of the season. In fact, if they finish anything lower than 6th, they will probably consider it to be a bit of a failed season. They have been one of the top performers in the league for most of this campaign, but things have gone a little bit off the boil lately as can be seen from the fact that they are sitting in 10th place in the form table - having picked up a total of 8 points in 6 matches.
