Sheffield United vs Plymouth Prediction

With the PL team facing a League One contender, expect nothing less of a high-scoring affair at Bramall Lane on Saturday. Sheffield United is backed by their ground advantage in the middle and the top-tier experience. Besides, their squad strength is also better than the traveling side for the upcoming clash.

In the last encounter in the tournament, the Blades scored 3 goals alone, and the match had 5 goals in total by the end of ninety minutes. There was a similar scoreline for Plymouth in their respective last clash in the FA Cup fixture in the schedule this season.

Thus, the tip for over 2.5 goals will probably be a suitable option for the punters. Apart from that, the home win in full-time will probably be the best bet in the encounter considering their squad strength and ground advantage in the clash.
