Match Betting (1x2)

One of the more evenly-matched encounters of Premier League Game Week 5 takes place at Bramall Lane where Sheffield United take on Southampton, with Chris Wilder’s side having acquitted themselves pretty well in the top flight thus far.

The Blades have enjoyed a meteoric rise under Wilder, with the manager having taken charge when the club was in League One, although they have celebrated two promotions in a short space of time and are certainly not there to make up the numbers in the top flight.

United have five points on the board from four games played, with bet365 making the Yorkshire outfit slight favourites at 29/20 to win against a Southampton team who have a point less after four matches.

The home team have already beaten Crystal Palace in front of their own supporters, although they were turned over against Leicester last time out and the Saints will hope to use their Premier League expertise to great effect in this encounter.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side began the campaign with successive defeats, although they have since beaten Brighton before drawing with Manchester United and the visitors can be backed at 19/10 with William Hill to come out on top in this clash.

The draw is currently available at 11/5 and actually looks like a value proposition considering that we have two fairly evenly-matched teams who would gladly take a point from this match and move forwards.

First Goalscorer

Sheffield United have scored five goals in the Premier League this season and their latest match at Stamford Bridge saw Callum Robinson on the scoresheet, with the former Preston forward trading at odds of 11/2 with Paddy Power to break the deadlock in this encounter.

It’s possible that Wilder will also deploy Oliver McBurnie in an attacking position and he scored in the Blades’ last home match when equalising against Leicester, with the former Swansea forward available at 5/1 on Paddy Power’s First Goalscorer market.

It has to be admitted that Southampton appear to possess the most dangerous attacking weaponry, with Che Adams on the verge of scoring his first goal since a big money arrival from Birmingham City. He’s 7/1 with betfair to break the deadlock in this clash and will be up against his former club.

Danny Ings will also be looking to get among the goals and we know that the former Liverpool man will be on penalties, with Paddy Power offering 13/2 that we see him score the opening goal of this encounter.

If you’re looking for a slightly bigger price, Nathan Redmond had an excellent scoring record for the Saints when Hasenhuttl took charge last season and he’s trading at around 10/1 for the first goal here.

Both Teams to Score

Sheffield United have managed to score in every match so far, while four of their five games have seen both sides find the net. This includes the recent 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge where Chelsea flew into a 2-0 lead before the Blades brought about an exciting comeback.

Therefore, some punters might be interested in the “Yes” option when it comes to Both Teams to Score, with bet365 offering an attractive 19/20 about this outcome and we’re expecting to see both teams on the front foot for an encounter that they will feel can be won.

Similarly for Southampton, they have managed to score in their past three top flight matches including games against Liverpool and Manchester United. However, they have only notched three times in total.

If you’re expecting at least one team to draw a blank in this clash, then “No” on the BTTS option is available at 20/21 with BetVictor.

Over / Under Goals

For a match which looks close as far as the Full Time Result is concerned, many punters will instead head towards a betting market which focuses on the number of goals that are going to be scored.

The bookmakers are erring towards this Premier League clash being a low-scoring affair, with Under 2.5 Goals currently trading at odds of 4/6 with bet365 and it’s easy to see why.

Southampton are currently struggling to score goals and even their 2-0 win at Brighton was partly down to the Seagulls having a player sent off early in the match.

For those that want to be a little braver, bet365 have 2/1 about Under 1.5 Goals being scored and that means zero or one goal on the board. This is a good bet for anyone who is expecting it to be very cagey and it’s worth noting that if either team score, then they will look to sit on their lead.

Alternatively for those that are expecting something similar to Sheffield United’s 2-2 draw against Chelsea, you can back Over 2.5 Goals at 13/10 with BetVictor, while Over 3.5 Goals is currently trading at 10/3 with Unibet if you think the shackles might be off more than the bookies think.

Correct Score

The first scoreline that springs to mind for this clash is a 1-1 draw, with both teams likely to show some attacking intention although they’re currently not creating a huge number of big chances.

With this in mind, the 1-1 scoreline can be backed at 11/2 with bet365, with Southampton recently having that result at home to Manchester United, while the Blades also had a 1-1 in their first match of the campaign away to Brighton.

The Saints will be looking to leapfrog their opponents by getting a victory and surging up the table, with Paddy Power going 7/1 that they land a 1-0 triumph at Bramall Lane.

Similarly, United winning the game 1-0 would really boost their hopes of survival and bet365 offer a similar 7/1 that Chris Wilder’s team enjoy their second victory by that scoreline, having beaten Crystal Palace by a single goal earlier this term.
