Derby to win the game

Derby County carry a decent amount of form and they might be quite pleased to know that Sheffield United have lost both home matches this season. Bramall Lane has often been a fortress for Sheffield United, but the back-to-back losses against Birmingham and Huddersfield Town would have seriously shaken this theory. Derby might feel that this is the best time to get a first victory over Sheffield United since 2018.

Total goals over 2.5

The games between Derby and Sheffield United happen to be very rich in terms of goals. There has been a combined output of 13 goals over the last four competitive meetings between these two teams. There is unlikely to be a shift in this policy with Sheffield United struggling at the back.

Goals from both teams – yes

Derby County have scored in both away games so far this season. Despite a lot of rumours about manager Wayne Rooney, the club has been keeping themselves in a good position to make a jump back into the Premier League. Meanwhile, the Blades do still have a lot of quality and they can hurt opposition at Bramall Lane.
