Tip Reasoning

Even though there are still three matches to play, Sheffield United rounded off what has been an excellent campaign on Saturday with a 3-0 away win at Port Vale. Once again, Chris Wilder’s men showed their class and were resounding winners. However, despite being so good this season, all their hard work has already been done and we could see the hosts take their foot off the gas here.

Many people will probably still be backing the home side and they may well get the job done but, considering they really don’t need to do anything else in order to secure safe passage back to the Championship, changes will probably be made and thus they aren’t likely to be at full strength.

The bet that stands out ahead of this fixture is ‘Under 2.5 Goals’. As touched on above, Sheffield United don’t really need to be going mad in this match, while all Bradford really need to do is avoid defeat and they’re looking good for a place in the play-offs. The fact that these two sides have had just 48 hours to recover from their Good Friday exploits will also play a part.

In addition, neither of these sides have been involved in all that many high-scoring encounters in their respective home and away matches this season, mainly because both are quite astute in the defensive third. 43% of Sheffield United’s home matches have seen more than three goals go in, while ‘Over 2.5 Goals’ has landed in just 38% of Bradford’s matches on the road.

All in all, expecting the goals to arrive in any large number doesn’t appear to be the way to go here and, therefore, ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ is how punters can make this fixture pay.
