From bad to worse for the Blades
Bet 1: Back Newcastle @ 21/10 – KO 18:00 GMT
Sheffield United are the favourites to beat Newcastle tonight, but I can’t be having that, despite the fact that their opponent are in poor form.
Chris Wilder’s side have lost 15 of their 17 Premier League matches this year, drawing the other two. They did beat Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup on Saturday, but that was a narrow 3-2 success at League One’s, Bristol Rovers.
Newcastle took Arsenal to extra time on Saturday, but they eventually lost 2-0, and they now haven’t won a match since December 12th.
Steve Bruce has come in for plenty of criticism, but he has a habit of picking up a result when he most needs one, and that could be today.
Spoils to be shared at Kenilworth Road
Bet 2: Back The Draw in Luton v QPR @ 11/5 – KO 19:00 GMT
The Hatters made it back to back wins by beating Reading in the cup on Saturday, but that run could come to a halt against a tough to beat, QPR.
Rangers took Fulham to extra time in their third round cup tie, but they eventually lost, and they have now gone 10 without a win in all competitions.
Mark Warburton’s side have drawn plenty of times though – nine out of 22 in the Championship this term – and it’s three 1-1 draws in a row on their travels.
Lions to lose at the Vitality
Bet 3: Back Bournemouth @ 4/6 – KO 19:45 GMT
This Championship fixture is a re-arranged one from over Christmas, and I fully expect the three points to remain on the south coast.
Other than a shock 3-2 defeat to Preston, the Cherries are unbeaten at the Vitality since their relegation from the Premier League.
Jason Tindall’s men have given some teams a good-hiding too, and their aggregate home score is 20-8 from 10 home games.
Millwall are down in 17th, and while they have only lost six of 21, two of those came from their last three away from the Den.
