Sheffield United vs Wrexham Prediction & Pick
One of the main reasons why Wrexham nearly won the first leg was that Sheffield United underestimated its opponent. After Oliver McBurnie scored in the second minute of the match, the Blades coasted for the most part until the Red Dragons upped the pressure in the second half, where they held the lead twice.
After that scare, I don't see Sheffield United taking Wrexham lightly again — especially not at Bramall Lane. The Blades have victories in five of their last six home matches, outscoring opponents 14-5 over that stretch. While the Red Dragons have won five straight road tilts, those wins came against English National League clubs that aren't on Sheffield's level.
Black the Blades to pick up the victory at home.
Final Score Prediction: Sheffield United: 3 | Wrexham: 1

Sheffield United vs Wrexham Best Bet
There isn't any value behind a Sheffield United outright victory, which is why I'm taking the Blades on the spread instead. As mentioned before, Sheffield is a completely better team when it's at Bramall Lane, picking up three of its last six home victories by multi-goal margins.
With the Blades being out for blood after nearly being embarrassed by Wrexham in front of the world, look for Sheffield United to win this decisively.
Bet: Sheffield United -1 (+120)
