Blades backed to end season in style

Have your say

It’s been a rollercoaster of a year for Sheffield United, but now the Blades now have nothing to play for as they prepare for their last fixture.

Nigel Clough’s men will nevertheless be keen to finish on a high and send the United faithful home happy, with thoughts of a potential promotion challenge next term.

Betvictor have installed the Blades as 10/11 favourites to register a final-day success, at the expense of Coventry, Stan James’s 3/1 outsiders and it’s 13/5 at bet365 to be an inconclusive affair at Bramall Lane, where Ladbrokes price a score draw at 19/5.

At Wednesday Stuart Gray’s side are 3/1 courtesy of Stan James to draw a line under the campaign by seeing off Ipswich in their closing clash.

The Tractor Boys however, get the nod from bookies at 9/10 ( and Skybet rate a stalemate at 5/2.

At Oakwell, bookies don’t lend much weight to Barnsley’s home advantage so the Tykes are 11/5 at to overcome QPR in a match Stan James quote at 5/2 to be a draw and under threat Doncaster are outsiders too, this time at 4/1 via Ladbrokes ahead of the visit to champions Leicester.

Betvictor rate Rotherham at 2/1 to get the better of Swindon but the Millers might have half an eye on next week’s play-offs and in League Two, bet365 chalk Chesterfield up at 11/10 to beat and make sure of the title.
