Betting: Sheffield United new boy 9/2 to score opener


Sheffield United have managed just one goal in their last five league and cup matches.

Pessimistic United supporters, who haven’t had much to cheer this term, might therefore fancy bet365’s 5/2 for David Weir’s men to draw another blank as they entertain Preston.

BetVictor rate the Bramall Lane showdown at 10/1 to finish 0-0.

Marlon King is 9/2 via Skybet to mark his debut by bagging the opener.

Meanwhile, Sheffield Wednesday’s Michail Antonio is a 17/2 chance at BetVictor to score first at Birmingham City.
