Sheffield United vs Brentford odds
Sheffield United may have dared to dream when they won four points across two games at the start of November, beating Wolves and drawing with Brighton. But they have returned to losing ways and sit bottom of the league. The Blades lost to Bournemouth and Burnley the latter being a 5-0 thrashing which brought the end of Paul Heckingbottom’s tenure. Chris Wilder is back in the hotseat but lost his return match 2-0 to Liverpool.
Brentford, meanwhile, sit 11th in the table after three defeats from their last four league games. It’s not a good run for the Bees, though two of those defeats came to Arsenal and Liverpool, as well as the loss against Brighton in midweek. The sole victory came against relegation battlers Luton.
