Sheffield United produced yet another giant-killing in the FA Cup, turning over Premier League outfit QPR at Loftus Road on Saturday.

Rangers entered the game with a terrific record at home with all 19 PL points coming at Loftus Road thus far this season.

The Blades ended up running out comfortable 3-0 winners and were cut 250/1 (from 500s) to better last season’s semi-final defeat to Hull and lift silverware aloft at Wembley in May.

BetVictor shortened Nigel Clough’s side even further after drawing fellow League One outfit Preston in the 4th round and the Blades are now 200/1 to go all the way and 7000/1 to win both the FA and Capital One Cup and complete the most memorable of doubles.

Selected FA Cup Outright prices from BetVictor: Chelsea 9/2 Man City 9/2 Man Utd 11/2 Sheff Utd 200/1 (from 500s.)

Prior to that fourth round clash at Deepdale, there is a dress rehearsal at Bramall Lane with both sides meeting on Saturday and points crucial to both sides’ respective promotion aspirations; 4/6 and 7/2 respectively to be playing Championship football next term.

The Blades struggled over Christmas, picking up one point in fixtures with Walsall and Port Vale y but have the class to bounce back and appeal at 7/5 to return to winning ways in League One at the weekend, the Lilywhites 2/1 and the draw 23/10.
