Betting Tip: @ Sheffield United on Draw No Bet @ 13/8 with bet365

Chris Wilder truly has had a special two years in football. This time in 2015, he was in charge of League Two Northampton Town and promptly steered the Cobblers to the title and promotion.

Wilder was then lured to Bramall Lane where he helped Sheffield United finally emerge from League One and the Blades are in a healthy tenth position after four games played against largely difficult opponents.

Home wins have been enjoyed against Barnsley and Brentford, while there was little disgrace in getting turned over at Middlesbrough and Cardiff, with Wilder now looking for his team to make further progress in the League Cup.

There are only two matches until a fortnight’s international break, so we might expect a strong home team on Tuesday night, with United having beaten Walsall 3-2 in the previous round with largely reserve players.

Billy Sharp has been the scorer of Sheffield United’s two home goals this term, with the defence running a tight ship and it’s a policy that could reap dividends against a changed Leicester side.

We’re unlikely to see Jamie Vardy make an appearance back in his hometown city, with Craig Shakespeare likely to also give Shinji Okazaki, Riyad Mahrez and Harry Maguire an evening off.

While Leicester can call upon strength in depth including Demarai Gray, Ben Chilwell and Islam Slimani, there’s always an element of doubt betting on a largely reserve side and the Foxes will be thinking about Saturday’s clash with Manchester United.

We’re going to recommend two bets. Sheffield United on the Draw No Bet which means money back if the game ends all square. Along with the Blades winning to nil as they aim to do the same to Leicester as they’ve managed against Barnsley and Brentford thus far.
