In a week of several mouth-watering EFL Championship games, Wednesday’s clash between Sheffield United and West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns is one of the standout fixtures. After taking over from the sacked Valerien Ismael, this will be Steve Bruce’s first match in charge of the Baggies. These two teams are separated by just three points in the table, and we should be in for a cracker in the Midlands. Check out the best betting odds and tips.

Sheffield United Preview – Can the Blades secure a massive three points?

Sheffield United have shown a big improvement since Paul Heckingbottom took over from Slavisa Jokanovic. In just a couple of months in charge, Heckingbottom has taken the Blades from mid-table obscurity to genuine promotion candidates.

Sheffield United have won six of eight in the league since the change of management. They head into this tasty fixture having won three on the spin in the Championship, seeing off Luton Town, Peterborough United and Birmingham City.

Sheff Utd to win & both teams to score

(odds taken 1504 GMT, Tuesday 8 February)

Sheffield United will move level on points with West Brom with a home victory on Wednesday. They are the slight favourites with the bookies at 13/10.

West Bromwich Albion Preview – Will Bruce start with a positive away result?

Valerien Ismael was sacked at West Bromwich Albion last week after a poor run of results. Ismael made a strong start, but the Baggies went off the boil massively, winning just one of their last seven in the league, suffering four defeats in the past six.

A 2-0 loss at Millwall in the last one proved to be the final nail in the coffin for Ismael. Experienced manager Steve Bruce was appointed his successor. West Brom are still in a good position in the table, sitting in sixth spot on 45 points, but things have certainly tightened up between themselves and the chasing pack.

Overall, West Brom have won 12, drawn nine and lost eight of their 29 league fixtures. The defeat to Preston North End in their last game at The Hawthorns was Albion’s first Championship home loss of the season, but they have struggled on the road at times. Can Bruce get them back on track?


Sheffield United vs West Bromwich Albion Betting Advice

It was a complete mismatch when these two went head-to-head at The Hawthorns earlier in the season. A lot has changed at both clubs since, but West Brom were far too strong on the day, with an own goal and efforts from Dara O’Shea, Alex Mowatt and Callum Robinson giving the Baggies a thumping 4-0 home win.

Both teams picked up narrow home wins against the other in the two Premier League meetings last term.


Key Facts – Sheffield United vs West Bromwich Albion Betting Tip

  • Sheffield United have won seven of the past nine in the Championship
  • West Brom have lost five of their last seven in all competitions
  • The Baggies hammered the Blades 4-0 in the reverse game


These two clubs have been heading in opposite directions of late. West Brom will be hoping for a manager bounce, but we fancy in-form United to pick up a precious three points on home soil this Wednesday. The home win is priced at 13/10.

Veteran striker Billy Sharp has netted three goals in his last four Blades appearances. The 36-year-old is available at 11/2 to open the scoring in this one.
