Sheffield United are anything but overwhelming favorites (+110) for this one with Fulham (+270) not as far off even betting lines as you might expect. It might be a trap, or it might be an opportunity to self-correct a week before everyone else. Even the draw (+225) feels like a relatively safe, in-play option.

Prediction: Sheffield United – Fulham

Sheffield United have struggled horribly to find the back of the net, having scored just once in four games. Fortunately for the Blades, they face a Fulham side which has conceded the second-most goals (11). A visit from Fulham appears to be the perfect cure for what ails Wilder and Co. Sheffield United 3-1 Fulham.
