Sheffield United to Win

Blackpool tackle Sheffield United on Tuesday evening and, there’s no nice way to put this, they could be in line for an absolute shellacking. The Blades have the best away record in The Championship, sit second in the table and have won four on the bounce and seven of their last eight.

NEW TO PADDY POWER NEWS?

The Tangerines haven’t won in seven games, losing four then drawing their three since the resumption, they’ve got the second-worst home record in the league and have scored just three goals in their last seven. Need I say more? It’s got the be Sheffield United to Win to kick us off.

Both Teams To Score

After a string of games with just one goal in, The Blades have opened up a little recently with both teams scoring in their last two and those games were against two of the division’s lowest-scoring sides in Wigan and Coventry. Blackpool fit into that category and they’ve actually scored the same as Cov, 26, but in a game more.

The hosts have netted in their last two and in three of their last four. They’re struggling to score more than one per game but United have been giving up a goal or two these days so Both Teams to Score should be a good play.

Over 10.5 Corners

These two both feature quite highly in the Championship’s corner stakes. United average 11.42 per game (6.25 for and 5.17 against) while it’s a slightly more modest 10.67 for Blackpool (4.50 for and 6.17 against).

The away side have passed this Over 10.5 Corners mark four times in their last six games while it’s three in six for the hosts. At a better than 50/50 chance, and with United expecting to have a lot of corners themselves here, I think its’ worth siding with Over 10.5 Corners.

Blackpool to Receive The Most Cards

Looking at recent games you’d be very surprised to see that Blackpool currently have the lowst total for yellow cards received in the league with 69 from 24 games. United are just inside the top ten on 87 so far.

It’s been roles reversed recently, though. Blackpool have clocked 13 cards in their last five with two of those being straight reds and there was even one game where they picked up zero. United have picked up 10 cards over the same timeframe but with Blackpool turning to the dark arts and the visitors having all of the play here we can put a tick next to Blackpool to Receive The Most Cards.
