Sheffield United have faced Manchester United and Arsenal in the last week and now they face Tottenham and it is telling how the prices of their opponents have varied.

Granted the Blades were ‘away’ to Manchester United but with behind closed door matches seeming to offer little advantage to the home side, I find it interesting that United went off at 4/9, Arsenal 13/10 and Spurs are 10/11. While United are clearly better than the two North London sides, I see little to suggest that there should be such a gulf in the prices of Arsenal and Spurs.

Sheffield United have clearly struggled since football returned, putting in a pretty dreary performance against Aston Villa, before two three-goal losses against Newcastle and Manchester United.

However, I saw a clear improvement against Arsenal and they were really unfortunate to lose that game. Moreover, Chris Wilder strikes me as a glass half-empty kind of man and this game gives them the opportunity to go up to seventh, a position which will almost certainly guarantee European football next season.

United’s record against the more established sides has been pretty impressive this season. They have beaten Arsenal at Bramall Lane and secured draws at The Emirates, Stamford Bridge and White Hart Lane.

Tottenham did beat West Ham last time out but they looked far from convincing in what was their first victory in eight games in all competitions.

All things considered, I like the look of Sheffield United at 9/4 in the Draw No Bet market. That is available with Bet365. Additionally, I will have a little nibble at the 1-1 scoreline at 13/2 with the same firm. Sheffield United have had seven league games end in this manner this term, Tottenham five, including the reverse fixture. In what is likely to be a tight match, this gets my vote.

I have loved numbers and sport throughout my life, so betting was a natural step. I started writing my own betting column at university and have continued throughout my adult life. I bet on football, golf and the NFL mainly but two flies going up a wall could also capture my attention. I am a West Brom fan and also follow teams in other sports but I think it's fair to say that no side compare with The Baggies!
