Crunch Time For Those With Euro Vision
Leicester risk throwing away Champions League qualification having looked a shoo-in since September. Meanwhile Sheffield Utd are on the cusp of claiming an unlikely Europe League spot for 2020-21.
This feels like a tough match to call with Sheffield Utd on better form, but less effective on the road. To my surprise, home advantage does still seem to apply with empty stadiums.
Instead, there may be a smattering of value in taking Betfair’s best price 6/5 on Over 2.5 goals in the match.
That has been the trend for Leicester City games all season (60%) and it’s likely to continue with the conflicting trends of Jamie Vardy scoring again, while the Foxes’s defence implodes, as it did spectacularly at Bournemouth.
The Blades have started to see more goals in their fixtures with Over 2.5 coming in four of their most recent six outings. Odds-against currently looks decent here.
