Our recommended bet for Monday’s clash at Bramall Lane comes in the form of a draw between Sheffield United and Coventry City.
A £10 wager for such an outcome will secure you a return of £36 with Betway.
Bramall Lane will act as the venue on Monday, December 26th, as two of the Championship’s standout sides prepare to do battle in a highly-anticipated clash.
The matchup in question will see promotion-chasing Sheffield United play host to a Coventry City outfit fresh off an impressive return to winning ways.
First, let’s take a look at the recent endeavours of the former.
United, of course, have long established themselves as one of two frontrunners for an automatic return to the Premier League, sitting 2nd in the table behind Vincent Kompany’s Burnley.
This comes with the Blades, on the back of a shaky stretch of results back in October, now firing on all cylinders once more.
All told, Paul Heckingbottom’s troops have notched six wins from seven, the latest of which came this past weekend.
A trip to the DW Stadium saw goals on the part of John Egan and Billy Sharp guide the visitors to a 2-1 downing of Wigan Athletic.
A seventh victory in eight, though, is likely to prove altogether more difficult to come by for Sheffield United on Boxing Day.
This comes with the Blades’ upcoming opponents having gotten their surge up the Championship table very much back on track last time out.
Coventry, for much of the campaign, were of course forced to battle it out amongst the bottom three in England’s 2nd tier.
The last couple of months, though, have seen the Sky Blues turn things around in nothing short of spectacular fashion.
After a momentary blip in their immediate return following the international break, Coventry, last weekend, racked up a fifth win in seven, at the expense of in-form West Bromwich Albion.
A solitary goal on the part of Viktor Gyokeres deep into injury time proved enough to both bring an end to West Brom’s five-game win streak, and guide Mark Robins’ men to within a solitary point of the promotion playoff places.
One could therefore do a lot worse than punt on Coventry to emerge from Bramall Lane with a share of the spoils on Monday evening.
We at 101, though, are backing Sheffield United to ultimately do enough to put the Sky Blues to the sword come the full-time whistle.
