Sheffield Wednesday v Derby Betting Tips
There aren’t many better home sides around than Sheffield Wednesday and they are on a two-match winning streak there, which includes a win over Newcastle. With a four-match winning streak on the board home and away and going five unbeaten in the Championship, they are well on course now for a play-off finish. It’s been a good response from them after a poor run of one win in seven. So they are finishing the season with a bang and at Hillsborough this season they have posted a W14 D2 L5 record. Earlier this season they did lose 2-0 at Derby and they have failed to win any of their last four at home against the Rams (D3 L1). But the way they are going at the moment, plus the necessity of the points, the Owls can do this. Under 2.5 goals in the game at SkyBet for 9/10 is the way to go as each of the last three between these at Hillsborough have gone under the goal line. A Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 correct score bet at SkyBetis a price of 6/1. That will do them at this point.
Derby haven’t been in bad form recently with a W3 D2 L1 record on the board, but are winless in their last two after getting hammered by Brentford and then finishing a last-gasp equaliser against Huddersfield in midweek. The Rams can’t get themselves into the play offs this season but could give the Owls a tough afternoon. Derby though have won just one of their last seven games out on the road in a W1 D1 L5 record and they failed to score in any of those defeats. A Sheffield Wednesday to win to nil bet at SkyBet is a quote of 2/1. It’s going to be hard to trust them to get a win in this one. They don’t have anything to play for either whereas the Owls do. In the anytime goalscorer market, Jordan Rhodes is up as 10/11 favourite for the Owls, with Fernando Forestieri at 11/10 and for the Rams there is Darren Bent and David Nugent around the 5/2 mark. Overall this season Derby have gone W7 D4 L10 out on the road in the Championship.
Who will win – Sheffield Wednesday v Derby Predictions
Sheffield Wednesday Home Win: This would be a big three points for the Owls and they can collect them. They have the scoring power to get through this in what is likely going to be a low-scoring affair and a 1-0 correct score on the home side looks a good punt.
