Sheffield United V Fulham gets Sunday (18/10/20) off to a start, and in my football betting tips, I think it could finally be a good day for the Blades.
- Bramall Lane
- Kick Off 12.00pm
- Live on BT Sports Box Office

Chris Wilder's Sheffield United were one of my pre season tips to go down (as are Fulham).
If they don't beat Fulham on Matchweek 5, then they really are in danger of the drop!
Sheffield United V Fulham Tips – 18/10/20
Not 1 point between these two sides from their opening 4 matches this season.
At bad as just one goal scored by Sheffield United sounds, I believe it's not as bad as the 11 Fulham have already conceded (ironically, the same as Liverpool after four matches).
Fulham concede way too many goals
Teams that can't defend will struggle, which makes Fulham's position - even at this early stage of the season - look very perilous.
For Sheffield United's struggles - only one goal scored, they are not leaking goals like Fulham.
The Blades were also very unlucky in their 1-0 defeat against Leeds on Matchweek 3. But in that match they showed me they had enough spirit to ensure that if they do go down, it won't be without a fight.

Although Sheffield United have struggled, I have to say backing them at odds against looks very good value.
Apart from in the second half of their 4-3 defeat to Leeds, Fulham have looked out of their depth this season.
While Chris Wilder's Sheffield United have 12 months of Premier League experience behind them
And it's for these reasons that my prediction for this match is simply for Sheffield United to win at odds of 23/20.
Sheffield United V Fulham Prediction
The match on Sunday falls foul of the Premier League's decision to charge £14.95 for the matches scheduled not to be shown on television. It's on BT Sports Box Office.
