Luton Town v Sheffield Utd Betting Tips & Predictions


Luton host Sheffield United at Kenilworth Road on Friday night with the visitors looking to extend their lead at the top of the Championship.

Both teams reached the playoffs last season, but neither qualified for the final. It has been a contrasting start to the 2022-23 campaign, with Luton down in 18th, having claimed just five points from their opening five matches. 

Sheffield United took four points from the two meetings in 2021-22. Luton failed to score across those 180 minutes.

Winner: Sheffield United

13/10 (bet365)

Since starting the season with a defeat to Watford, Sheffield United have claimed 10 of 12 available points. Luton beat Swansea for their first win of the season last time out, but they have just one point from two home league matches and have failed to score on both occasions.

Paul Heckingbottom is missing several important players, but the Blades have still been able to put together a string of good results. Their nine goals scored thus far is the most in the division, and they made light work of Blackburn last time out. 

The 13/10 price on Sheffield United to take all three points is great value here. 

Total Goals: Under 2.5 

8/11 (bet365)

There have been under 2.5 goals in Luton’s last eight Championship matches. Only Preston have scored fewer times this season. There was a grand total of four goals across the two fixtures between these sides in 2021-22, and another low-scoring match is expected here.

Scoring goals has been a real problem for the hosts. Sheffield United have conceded four goals in five matches, but their defence was solid in 2021-22 (fourth in goals against). 

Even at 8/11, it’s worth wagering on under 2.5 total goals. 

Most Corners: Sheffield United 

4/5 (888Sport)

Sheffield United had eight corners to Luton’s one when the teams last met. The Blades also had four more corners than the Hatters when the teams played at Kenilworth Road last term. 

Leading the league in shots on target in 2022-23, Sheffield United will force Luton goalkeeper Ethan Horvath into action, which will help to win corners. The visitors also average the second-most corners per match this season, while only four teams concede more than Luton.
