Sheffield United vs QPR Match Preview
A huge game at the top of the table and if things go their way, Sheffield United could find themselves in an automatic promotion place after this game. They have been at the top of the table earlier this season, but dropped away. They are now back and come here on the back of three victories, a fourth could see them leapfrog second place Norwich if The Canaries don’t register a win of their own this weekend.
Just when United needed a boost they have found it, with three victories in a row, scoring three goals in each of them against Derby, Blackburn and Wigan. Those wins have brought the feel good factor back to Brammall Lane, and United are priced up at 11/17 to make it four wins in a row with Unibet.
QPR started the season woefully but since then they have gone from strength to strength, so much so that they are fighting to get into the playoffs right now. They have 39 points, which puts them just four behind Derby, who hold onto the last playoff spot, and a win here would keep them in contention for sure.
One thing QPR do need to do is stop their run of draws, which is now at two. They won three in a row before that, and would love to get that streak going again against a fellow promotion contender. The trip up north won’t be easy though, and QPR are priced up at 9/2 to take three points from this one with Paddy Power.
This is a very important game for both teams here, and one that neither will want to lose. Sheffield United see a chance to move into the automatic spots, while QPR could close the gap to the playoff positions. Both need three points, but with QPR struggling to get over the line in recent weeks, the value here may be with the draw. These two quality teams could well cancel each other out in this one, so we are backing the draw at 3/1 with Betway.
