Wednesday betting preview

Four games without a win have seen Sheffield United relinquish top spot in the Championship and another tough test awaits the Blades against a much improved Coventry side.

Ollie Norwood salvaged a point for the Blades with a 98th-minute equalizer in Saturday’s frantic 3-3 draw with Blackpool, a game that featured four red cards and a missed penalty, but things may not be as exciting in the West Midlands on Wednesday.

Coventry highlighted their recent improvement in Saturday’s 1-0 win at Cardiff – their fifth game in a row to feature a single goal or less.

The Sky Blues have conceded only once in this run, in a 1-0 home defeat to league leaders Burnley, and seven of their 11 matches this season have rewarded supporters under 2 .5 goals.

That low-scoring theme should continue against the Blades, who have injuries to contend with and have also seen under 2.5 cop goals in five of their seven road trips.

Blackpool’s point at Bramall Lane came at a price as Marvin Ekpiteta, Dominic Thompson and Shayne Lavery saw red, meaning the Seasiders could be without nine first-team players for Wednesday’s visit to Hull.

The absence of first-choice defenders Ekpiteta and Thompson is particularly significant and although Hull can capitalise, the Tigers are hard to trust after losing seven of their last eight and conceding a record 28 goals in 14 games.
