Odds, picks & predictions
Sheffield United: -240
Moneyline pick (regular time): Draw +330
If the first meeting between these teams was any indication of how this match will play out, it’ll be another close contest. Wrexham have shown they can play from behind and rescue points, while Sheffield United are in supreme form and are now on their home ground. There might be less goals than the first meeting but the contest should remain tight.
To advance: Wrexham (+290)
This Hollywood story seems to keep getting better, and Wrexham would have a genuine chance. There has to be a winner in this replay, so might as well go with the underdog to get it done. Sheffield United have shown tremendous resolve but I’ll back Wrexham to keep this narrative up in extra time or penalties.
