Blackburn have, on the other end, been more unpredictable and come into the match with 15 points to their name after ten games. They’ve seen a thriller 2-2 draw at Nottingham Forest, conceding a late penalty-kick equalizer at Ewood Park and dropping important points on Saturday. This was their second consecutive draw here and extended their six-game unbeaten streak at home ground, though, but shutting down in-form visitors will not be an easy task on the day either.

Blades have been regularly netting numbers of goals on the road and we’ve seen them find the net twice or more in three of their last three trips – where they beat QPR, Bolton, and Millwall – while only suffering a 1-0 loss at Bristol City along the way. We now expect another exciting occasion and both sides should prove motivated for an extra goal to turn it their way.

Blackburn vs Sheffield United: Head-to-head

  • The sides have last met in 2007 and Blackburn bagged a 2-1 win at this ground.
  • Sheffield have last earned a win over the rivals in 2000, with two draws and a loss in their last three matchups.
  • We’ve been used to very narrow matches between the sides despite rare chances to meet.

Blackburn vs Sheffield United: Prediction

We will now back Blackburn to build on their tough character in front of the home crowd but we don’t see them snatching all three points against in-form visitors. This has us sticking our necks out for a Draw at 3.40 and this does feel like more than a lively longshot at this point.

We do believe we’ll see goals at Ewood Park once again and we’ll now also back Both teams to score at 1.83. We’ve seen both sides scoring and conceding numbers of goals lately, struggling to keep it together at the back, and this does sound like more evidence for such a bet too!

Blackburn vs Sheffield United: Bet Tips

  • Draw @ 3.40 (12/5)
  • Both teams to score YES @ 1.83 (5/6).
