Wednesday 8pm: Sheffield United v Sunderland
TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Football

Sunderland (+1)

It’s been a slow start for both Sheffield United and Sunderland this term, with both winning just one each of their combined eight matches so far. The Blades have also lost two and drawn one and the Black Cats have drawn two and lost one of their other games with both sides bowing our of the Carabao Cup with much-changed sides last week.

Sunderland are 6th in The Championship, one point and three places above United heading into this batch of midweek fixtures. The Blades are big favourites to get the job done at Bramall Lane on Wednesday but I think they’re way too short to back with any confidence.

I’ll take a swing on Sunderland (+1) here. United’s only win has come at home but Sunderland’s sole triumph has come on the road. The Draw feels the most likely result but backing two of the three outcomes at this price feels the way to play.

Both Teams to Score

While Both Teams To Score has only clicked once in Blades games this season, it’s landed in 75% of Sunderland’s matches. The thing that’s swung me towards Yes in this market is that Both Teams Scored in United’s last game, their 2-2 draw with Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Neither side has seen a 0-0 yet this campaign so if we’re backing The Black Cats to get something out of this then I think each side will have to net as it’s not in their DNA to play it safe with only one clean sheet between the two in their eight games this season.

Ross Stewart to Score or Assist

Ross Stewart has made a decent start to the 2022/23 season, bagging two goals and an assist in his three appearances. He’s really warming up as well with a goal in both of his last two matches.

Ellis Simms is actually Sunderland’s top scorer with three but he’s slightly shorter than The Loch Ness Drogba in this particular market. At the bigger price I’ll take on Ross Stewart to Score or Assist here and keep his good run going.

Sander Berge to Score Or Assist

You might associate Sander Berge more with setting them up rather than putting them away but he’s currently got two goals and no assists to his name this season. The Norwegian does love to get amongst the goals and scored six and set up four last term.

That added up to around on goal involvement in every three games and obviously he’s running way above that in the small sample size that we have this season. He’s another in excellent form so Sander Berge to Score Or Assist couple be a great punt at an appealing price.
