Sheffield United's Premier League odds released after Championship promotion

What a season it has been for everyone connected to Sheffield United football club. The Blades have been outstanding in the Championship this term, and sealed promotion to the Premier League this weekend thanks to a 2-0 win against Ipswich Town combined with Leeds United's failure to beat Aston Villa.

It means that Chris Wilder's side cannot be caught in second place, sitting on 88 points after 45 fixtures with Leeds now five points adrift of their Yorkshire neighbours. They still have a chance of winning the title too with just three points between themselves and Norwich City heading into the final day of the campaign.

They can now look forward to trips to the Etihad, Anfield and Old Trafford next season for the first time since their last, ill-fated, stint in the Premier League back in 2006/07. It has been a long time coming for their fans who have stuck with the club despite spending six seasons in League One before finally bouncing back under Wilder in 2017.

But how well will Sheffield United do in their 2019/20 Premier League campaign? We have taken a look at the early odds from bookmakers to see what kind of season they are predicting the Blades will have.

What odds are Sheffield United to stay up in the Premier League?

The big question now is can Sheffield United stay up in the Premier League next season? There is no doubting that it will be a tough ask as it always is for the promoted teams, but with Wilder at the helm they certainly have a great chance given his success in recent years.

Last time the Blades were in the top flight they were relegated on the final day after a defeat to Wigan Athletic meant they finished third from bottom on goal difference. They will be hoping for better this time around, and you have to say the squad they have and style of play looks much more Premier League ready than it did under Neil Warnock 12 years ago.

Players like Jack O'Connell, John Fleck and Oliver Norwood amongst others have been tipped for Premier League football anyway, whilst boyhood Blade Billy Sharp will be desperate to prove that he can cut it at the top level having never spent a season there.

But the bookmakers early odds indicate that they feel it will be a season of battling against the drop for the South Yorkshire side. Indeed bet365 have the Blades as odds-on to suffer relegation straight back to the Championship, with the bookmaker currently offering a price of 4/6.

On the flip side they are priced at 11/10 to stay up with the same bookmaker, so there is not currently too much between their prices for relegation or survival.

Could Sheffield United achieve better than just survival?

If you saw any of the quotes from Sheffield United's awards night, you will know that Wilder and his players are determined not to just make the numbers up in the Premier League next season. Indeed their defender Chris Basham said that they "don't just want to stay up" next season, indicating that they have a genuine belief that they can do some damage in the top flight.

They do have a unique way of playing, which could catch quite a few teams out next year. Setting up with a 3-5-2 formation they not only have wing-backs who are regularly involved in attacks, but their two outside centre-backs also get involved going forward too.

Some pundits have described it as 'organised chaos' and almost all of the clubs in the Championship have failed to contain them this season. Whether it will work at a higher level remains to be seen, but if it does then they could follow in the footsteps of the likes of Wolves, Bournemouth and Reading who have ended up defying expectations in the top flight in recent years.

That said, a top half finish is considered unlikely by the bookmakers at this stage. Indeed bet365 are offering odds of 12/1 for them to finish in the top 10, although that could change depending on what business they do in the transfer market.

Conversely, they are heavy favourites to finish in the bottom half, with the same bookmaker offering 1/25 for that outcome. There are also odds available for them to 'do a Leicester' and somehow win the Premier League, but unsurprisingly the odds of 2500/1 reflect just how unlikely that is.
