Sheffield United vs Crystal Palace predictions and betting tips for the Premier League on Sunday 18th August. Both sides look for their first win after draws against Bournemouth and Everton respectively.
We’ve picked out a team to win bet and correct score prediction and you can see the selection below.
Neither side were involved in high scoring affairs last time out and we expect more of the same here. Crystal Palace’s attack is overly reliant on Zaha and ineffective without their talisman. With the forward set to play a larger role in this game, we back him to make the difference and set these two teams apart. Zaha to be the last scorer covers the possibility of him starting on the bench and is priced at 13/2.
Sticking with the low scoring theme, we think just the one goal will separate these two sides. One of Palace’s main strength lies on the counterattack and we back them to keep the Blades at bay in this one. Exactly 1 goal in total is priced at 3/1. Our most eye-catching tip is Crystal Palace to win 1-0 at 13/2.
The Blades kicked off their first campaign back in the Premier League with an impressive display against Bournemouth. The Cherries were unable to break Sheffield United down and managed just one goal. Sheffield United’s resilience enabled them to snatch a late equaliser after a goalmouth scramble. The goal was somewhat fortuitous but Sheffield United did well to reach this late stage with the game still alive.
Crystal Palace started their season with a 0-0 draw at home to Everton. As has been the case for the last couple of seasons, Palace struggled without Wilfried Zaha. The Ivorian came off the bench in the second half but couldn’t force home the advantage after Everton were reduced to 10.
Palace’s home form would have placed them 18th in the table, comparted to 6th on away form. This bodes well for the Eagles trip to Bramall Lane. Crucially, Wilfried Zaha may start this time around, a huge boost for their goalscoring prospects.
