Sheffield United v Wolves Preview And Betting Tips

After being promoted to the top-flight last season Sheffield United flirted with a top four place until fading away in the latter part of the season, however a ninth-place finish was still very much above expectations. Wolves are a quality side and finished seventh between Spurs and Arsenal, but only seven points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, and on reflection one expects Nuno Espírito Santo will have higher expectations for his team ahead of the new campaign. Kevin Campbell and Neil Mellor give their opinions ahead of the Monday night Premier League clash, while tipsters Form Labs guide you to where the value might lie with their betting preview and tips.

Wolves played 59 times last season as their campaign ended in mid-August, but while there are fears over whether they’ve had enough time to rest and recuperate, they’ve demonstrated consistency with back-to-back seventh-place finishes – despite the same concerns ahead of last term.

Their hosts endured an end of season slump as they went W3-D2-L5 over their final 10 league fixtures, though it may yet transpire to be a blessing in disguise as failure to qualify for the Europa League leaves them free to consolidate on the domestic front.

The Blades took four points from Wolves last season in tight encounters, drawing 1-1 at Molineux before they triumphed 1-0 here at Bramall Lane courtesy of a 93rd-minute winner.

Only 12 of the Blades’ matches last term were settled one way or the other by more than a single goal, while the same occurred in just 10 of Wolves’ matches, so we can expect another close tussle once again.

Sheffield United And Wolves To Draw

Only Southampton registered more stalemates than Wolves on their return to the top flight in 2018/19 and Nuno Espirito Santo’s men had a joint-high 14 draws last term, while Sheffield Utd weren’t far behind with 12.

In fact, the visitors held a W4-D12-L4 record when facing teams that finished between fifth and 15th, with it making little difference whether they were home or away as there was an identical W2-D6-L2 split.

Meanwhile, Chris Wilder’s side won four of eight unbeaten matches versus teams that finished between 6th and 10th, also taking four points from each of Arsenal, Spurs and Burnley in addition to their opponents here.

With a tight game on the cards, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a low-scoring affair here. Sheffield United’s matches were the most miserly of any team in the league last term, while a dull Crystal Palace side were the only others to endure lower-scoring games than Wolves.

11 of the visitors’ last 17 trips have seen fewer than three goals, including each of the past five, while home or away nine of their past 10 have gone under that threshold.

Sheffield United And Wolves To Draw 1-1

There’s not much value to be had backing Under 2.5 Goals, but there’s reason to think both sides can register nonetheless.

10 of Sheffield Utd’s 12 draws last term saw both teams score, with eight of these finishing 1-1 and the correct score is certainly of interest here.

Nine of Wolves’ 14 stalemates also ended 1-1, while they may lack a bit of penetration from out wide with Jonny injured and Matt Doherty sold to Spurs, which should help keep the scoring down.
