Wrexham vs Sheffield Prediction & Pick

While Wrexham has won seven straight matches, the majority of those victories came against weaker competition in the English National League. Now, the Red Dragons must deal with a Sheffield United club that currently occupies the No. 2 spot in the EFL Championship.

As great as it is to see a team like Wrexham succeed, Sheffield will bring the club back down to earth. The Blades have eight wins in their last nine matches against opponents tougher than the Red Dragons. Wrexham will make things interesting and won't look too out of place, but the experience and talent advantage will get Sheffield the win.

Final Score Prediction: Sheffield: 2 | Wrexham: 1

Wrexham vs Sheffield Best Bet

Again, I don't see Wrexham being good enough to pull off the upset this weekend. Sheffield is gunning for a return to the Premier League and won't let the Red Dragons get in its way.

Keeping that in mind, there's decent value in an outright win here, so take Sheffield at -130 on the moneyline as the best bet.

Bet: Sheffield to Win (-130)
