Burnley vs Sheffield United Predictions & Betting Tips – Carabao Cup

Burnley betting tips

Burnley vs Sheffield United prediction and betting tips for the EFL Cup fixture on Thursday 17th September from Turf Moor. Kick-off is at 5.30pm.

This all Premier League tie takes place in the Carabao Cup tonight and Burnley are yet to get their season started after not playing in the league at the weekend. Sheffield United might have wished they hadn’t started either, after losing 3-0 at home to Wolves. It is likely Chris Wilder will make changes to his starting line-up for this game, but Burnley may give some first team players game time ahead of their opening match of the Premier League season against Leicester on Sunday.


Burnley vs Sheffield United Prediction

  • Burnley only lost two of their last 14 matches at the end of last season.
  • Their only match during pre-season was a 0-0 draw against Preston.
  • Sheffield United started the season with a 2-0 loss at home to Wolves.

This is a tough match to generate a prediction from given that Burnley haven’t even played yet this season but with home advantage and what is likely to be a weakened Sheffield United team, the hosts might just be a good bet to win this match. This will be seen as a chance to get some minutes on the board for the Burnley players who haven’t played any football since the end of last season and for Sean Dyche to assess his team.

There is unlikely yo be many goals in this game though, so a 1-0 correct score tip for Burnley to win might be a good bet, or if you’re just looking for a team to add to an accumulator then go for a home win using the Betiton sign-up bonus which will give you a £10 free bet.
