Coventry vs Sheffield United predictions and betting tips for tonight’s League One clash. Our football tipster has picked the three best bets with reasons for each.
Struggling Coventry host Sheffield United to night in League One and we have three betting tips for the 19:45 kick off.
Sheffield United bounced back from their blip against Walsall in ideal style with a thumping 4-0 win over Swindon at the weekend. The Robins probably should have taken the lead, but were punished for failing to take their chances and were hit for four by the Blades. The off the ball movement of Chris Wilder’s side is impressive and they are easy on the eye. Impressively, they had 25 shots and 19 on target during that victory and could have been in double figures by the time the final whistle sounded. They have Billy Sharp firing in the goals with the ever-improving John Fleck scheming in-behind. Mark Duffy also made the difference against the Robins and managed to find the net twice. Three points here would see them draw level with Scunthorpe at the top of the tree and put the pressure on the sides competing on Saturday.
Bolton are also in imperious form and recently beat a much-changed Blades side in the FA Cup. Chris Wilder has stressed the importance of learning from mistakes and cutting out lapses in concentration which saw Charlton draw level in stoppage time at the Valley. Coventry have struggled in recent weeks under Mark Venus. He enjoyed a purple patch when taking the hotseat, but he hasn’t been able to keep it going and 5 consecutive losses have sent them back into the relegation zone. A 3-1 defeat at Southend was disappointing at the weekend, but they will be looking to avoid three consecutive home defeats after losses to Scunthorpe and MK Dons. They do have a good record against Sheffield United at the Ricoh, but the Blades are the second highest away scorers in the league and will be difficult to stop.
Take Sheffield United to ease to victory here. Coventry aren’t defending well or scoring enough goals and the Blades have been clinical of late so our first Coventry vs Sheffield United betting tip is an away win at odds of 3/4 with Sky Bet.

Mark Venus called Coventry ‘a sorry club’ and his outburst may prompt changes ahead of this game. Lee Burge went off injury against Southend and may be replaced by Reece Charles-Cook between the sticks. Vladimir Gazdhev may come back in for this match alongside Marcus Tudgay.
Sheffield United are likely to stay unchanged from their 4-0 win over Swindon. John Fleck will be desperate to find the target against his former club.
Coventry beat Sheffield United here in April by 3 goals to 1. Ruben Lameiras and Andy Rose got on the scoresheet. The Blades have lost their last three visits here and haven’t been victorious since 2009.
Despite being the away side, Sheffield United are odds-on and can be backed at around 3/4. The draw can be backed at around 11/4 whereas Coventry are priced at 4/1.
Billy Sharp, Leon Clarke and Matt Done dominate the goalscorer market as the traders expect Sheffield United to score plenty of goals.
