Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Sheffield United – English Premier League, April 17, 2021
Sheffield United’s relegation could be confirmed on Saturday if it loses at Molineux. The return to the Championship has been on the cards virtually all season – but the Blades should be doing all they can to delay the inevitable.
Wolves, on the other hand, have very little to play for. Safety is secured, and there is no chance of European qualification. There is just pride left for Nuno Espirito Santo’s men now.
Wolves vs. Sheffield United Odds
The home win certainly seems like the most likely result here on Saturday – and BetOnline has not disappointed with its pricing of the game.
Sheffield United cannot harbor any realistic chances of staying up, so there shouldn’t be a surprise outcome. Wolves should win this quite comfortably.
Wolves’ players will probably say that they deserved the win against Fulham last weekend due to the ‘goal’ controversially rules out by VAR. But, luckily for Nuno Espirito Santo, Adama Traore popped up at the very last minute to score the goal that took all three points back to the Black Country.
That was Wolves’ first win in six games and did well enough to make any remote worries about relegation disappear. There are many injury problems for the home team this week, so the manager will be looking forward to getting to the end of this season and planning for the new one with a full complement of players.
Interim manager Paul Heckingbottom – and a number of the players – may not be around next season, but they will all be glad to put this campaign behind them.
The 3-0 home defeat at the hands of Arsenal last weekend was just another example of how far behind the rest of the Premier League the Blades have looked this season. After competing so well last year, it has been a major disappointment to see how outclassed Sheffield United has been this time around. Another defeat looks likely this Saturday too.
Wolves vs. Sheffield United Betting Pick
Wolverhampton Wanderers to Win-137
Raul Jimenez has started to improve his fitness after recovering from the terrible head injury he suffered earlier in the season – but he will still not play any part of this game. The good news for Wolves is that it should not need its star player to beat the bottom-placed club.
This will end up in a home win and Sheffield United being officially relegated.
