Sheffield United have confounded their critics this season and they can pick up another point against a top six side on Sunday.
“The Blades have suffered just one defeat in seven and that came against table-topping Liverpool.”
Manchester United have enjoyed a mini revival in recent weeks, but they are set for an afternoon of frustration in Sheffield on Sunday.
Five wins out of their last six in all competitions represents an improvement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side and it has also helped them to climb to seventh in the Premier League table. But that is still two places behind Sunday's opponents, who have made a habit of defying expectations so far this season.
Sheffield United's playing style has raised eyebrows, but there is no arguing with its effectiveness. The Blades have suffered just one defeat in seven and that came against table-topping Liverpool. Given that they have the second-best defensive record in the top-flight, while United are averaging 0.83 goals per game on the road, a draw looks well within the home side's capabilities this weekend.
Cape Town Blitz lost to the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants in the Mzansi Super League last time out, and they don't offer much value in Sunday's game.
The Blitz have an excellent batting unit, but they are vulnerable, and although Dale Steyn and Wahab Riaz are top class bowlers, they can be expensive in this format.
Paarl Rocks may lack some of Cape Town's batting firepower, but they have a miserly bowling line-up that restricted Jozi Stars to 129 in their last game and skittled out the Blitz for 84 in the reverse fixture earlier this month. Cape Town have home advantage here, but at odds against, Paarl look a good bet.
Oakland Raiders have emerged as surprise NFL play-off candidates, with a 6-4 record that leaves them just one game behind the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West, and they will be optimistic of picking up another win against the lowly Jets on Sunday.
But if this game were a horse race you might describe it as 'trappy'. Yes, the Jets have a poor record and are in the bottom tier of NFL sides. And that defeat to the Dolphins in Week Nine is particularly embarrassing.
But any team that includes Le'Veon Bell cannot be written off, and they have an excellent quarterback in Sam Darnold along with a solid defense. Back to back victories (admittedly against the Giants and the Redskins) will also give them some confidence and with home advantage they are the better bet here.
