Sheffield United vs Wolves is the pick of this week’s Premier League Monday night action (September 14, 6.00pm). Both teams will have been disappointed to miss out on playing European football this season but that at least allows them to concentrate their efforts on the Premier League.
Wolves particularly should benefit from not having the hectic early and late schedule that they had to endure last year. But this is a hard match to call early in the season from a win point-of-view, and the bookies are finding it hard to separate them with the best odds on offer being Sheffield United 23/10 (3.30), the draw 21/10 (3.10), and Wolves 7/5 (2.40).
But there is one statistic that stands out in the form of both teams, which is only one team scores in a massive percentage of their games. That’s why our Sheffield United vs Wolves tip is no in the both teams to score market.
Sheffield United’s form was turbulent after the Covid-19 break. They started with successive away defeats and then rallied with victories over Tottenham and Chelsea. They also beat Wolves 1-0, but Wolves spurned the better of the chances in that match. They then lost their final three matches of the season to see European football slip through their grasp.
In those last 11 games for Sheffield United, only one team scored in seven of those 11 games. That’s a 63% probability.
Chris Wilder is a manager you must admire, and it will be interesting to see if his new signings Bogle, Lowe, and Ampadu improve his squad. But the gut-feeling is the Blades may struggle to match last season’s unexpected top-half finish and they may once again feature in lots of low-scoring games.
Wolves also let European football slip through their grasp on the final day of the season, but they did win five of their final Premier League games, losing three, and drawing one. They also won one of their last two matches in the Europa League. Despite that mix of results, the standout statistic was again only one team scoring, which happened in 10 of those 11 matches. That’s a significant 90% probability.
The post-lockdown performances of both Sheffield United and Wolves suggest that no in the both teams to score market should be much shorter, especially as their last match also produced that result.
