Leagues Tipped:

SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Nottingham Forest and Sheffield United's hotly-anticipated playoff semi-final second leg on Tuesday night.

Nottingham Forest vs Sheffield United (Tuesday, 19:45)

Sheffield United will try to overturn a 2-1 deficit when they head to Nottingham Forest in the second leg of their English Championship playoff semi-final on Tuesday night.

A 2-1 success at Bramall Lane ensured that the Tricky Trees enter Tuesday’s contest with a slender advantage.

Both teams will be fully up for this given the occasion which should make for an enthralling affair, and that has led me to a nice looking Bet Builder.

Dipping into Sky Bet’s Request a Bet Market, it’s the even-money (1/1) about Over 1.5 goals, Each Team 3+ corners and 30+ Booking Points that holds appeal.

Goals have been a regular feature in Nottingham Forest home games this term, with a whopping 21 of their 23 City Ground encounters during the regular season generating two or more match strikes.

As for Sheffield United, they will have to throw caution to the wind at some stage here as only a win will do if they secure their place in this month’s Wembley showpiece, so we should see a decent degree of goalmouth action.

With all that in mind, I'll happily side with over one match goal in West Bridgford, but to boost the odds, I'll also throw three corners apiece into the equation.

Both of these sides were reliable corner performers during the regular season, with Forest averaging 5.54 corners per-game, while the Blades tally was marginally higher at 5.85 per 90.

To round off the Bet Builder I'm going with a minimum of 30+ booking points in what promises to be a tasty televised tussle under the lights on Tuesday night.

Both clubs averaged in the region of two yellow cards per game in the Championship this season, not to mention the pair played their part in a fiery first leg that featured no fewer than seven cautions.

Whilst referee Michale Oliver is generally a middle of the range car issuer, it's worth noting the top-flight whistler has dished out 30+ Booking Points in 33 (76.7%) of the the 43 matches that he has taken charge of this season across all competitions this season so far.

With all things considered, coupled with the fact the aforementioned Bet Builder banked when the duo locked horns at Bramall Lane on Saturday, siding with the same combination here stands out at evens (SkyBet) given that we have all the necessary ingredients required for an action-packed contest at the City Ground.

Recommended Bet

  • Over 1.5 Goals
  • Each Team 3+ Corners
