Manchester City’s clash with West Ham has become a victim of Storm Ciara, and so there’s only one game in the Premier League scheduled today – Sheffield United versus Bournemouth at Bramall Lane.
The visitors have won their last two league games but are still in trouble, just two points above the relegation zone.
Sheffield United, by contrast, are having a very impressive season – three points today would put them into fifth and just two points behind a Champions League spot.
We fancy the home team today, but don’t expect a high scoring experience.
John Fleck has been scored five goals for the Blades this season, his team’s joint highest scorer. He’s top priced 15/4 to score anytime today, and we would consider that. But instead we’ll take the 10/1 on offer that he scores the first goal as we don’t think there will be many goals today.
Recommendations: Fleck to score first goal, 1 pt, at 10/1, bet365
