Hull City vs Sheffield United Prediction
Both these sides look similar on paper, with Sheffield having the upper hand. But, at the same time, both these sides have not been prolific in front of goal. Hence, we back the odds at 3.25 for a draw in this game.
On the other hand, Billy Sharp will get his starting opportunity and he will be eager to get on the score sheet against a low-lying opposition. Hence, we back the odds at 3.10 for Sharp to score anytime during the game
