Ten Leeds United players rated more potent than chief Sheffield United threat

PATRICK Bamford is expected to add to his growing tally for hot favourites Leeds United in today's Yorkshire derby against Sheffield United at Elland Road (kick-off 3pm).

Saturday, 3rd April 2021, 11:00 am

Bamford finds himself joint-fourth in the Premier League Golden Boot race on 14 goals and the Whites no 9 is odds on with some firms to find the net against the bottom of the table Blades.

Bamford is no bigger than 6-5 as an any time scorer and a clear 37-10 favourite to net first in a market in which the first ten players belong to Leeds in Bamford, Rodrigo, Joe Gelhardt, Sam Greenwood (all 6s), Raphinha (7s), Tyler Roberts (17-2), Jack Harrison (17-2), Pablo Hernandez (43-5), Helder Costa (9s) and Ian Poveda (10s).

Marcelo Bielsa's Whites are no bigger than 4-7 to take all three points whereas Paul Heckingbottom's Blades are on offer at 29-5.

The draw can be backed at 18-5 and Oli McBurnie is rated the chief Blades threat yet the Scotland international is as big as 21-2 to score first and 11th in the list along with Billy Sharp who is out injured.

Lys Mousset is next from a Blades perspective at 23-2, followed by top scorer David McGoldrick who is 12s and the same odds as Antwoine Hackford, Oliver Burke and Rhian Brewster.

No goalscorer is next at 13-1 but the bookies do not envisage that happening and expect Leeds to net at least once.

Even a 3-0 Whites triumph is only 25-2 but a 1-0 success and 2-0 victory head the market at 36-5.
