Sheffield Wednesday v Derby Prediction & Betting Tips – 13th February 201812th February 2018 / lee
Sheffield Wednesday v Derby Championship, 13th February 7.45pm
Sheffield Wednesday have an FA Cup tie to look forward to on the weekend so they could be a bit distracted by this league fixture in midweek. It continues to be a season of poor returns by the Owls in the Championship. Derby meanwhile are up in third and have the chance to at least temporarily get back second place from Aston Villa. Can the Rams strike the win at Hillsborough?
Sheffield Wednesday v Derby Betting Odds*
Derby 23/20, Draw 9/4, Sheffield Wednesday 5/2* (Betting Odds taken on February 11th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
Sheffield Wednesday News and Form
Sheffield Wednesday have not managed to pick up a victory in any of their last seven league outings now. They suffered a 3-1 home defeat in their last game at Hillsborough against the relegation-threatened Birmingham. The Owls have drawn four of their last five league games and because of all that, in the William Hill correct score market, the 1-1 draw is at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 11th, 2018 at 8:42 p.m.). Wednesday have actually only won four times this season on home soil in the Championship and have not managed a single one in any of their last eight. In total, they have tallied up 19 goals in their 15 home games but have struggled to get clean sheets on the board at Hillsborough, just the three of them in fact all term. Sheffield Wednesday have conceded 62% of their goals at home in the first half of games and currently going into this midweek fixture, only four teams have a worse home record in the division than the Owls have this season.
Derby News and Form
After a draw it the weekend in the league, Derby saw Aston Villa climb above them into second place, but the Rams can grab back second on Tuesday night, even if it is just until next weekend. Derby are W1 D3 in their last four Championship fixtures but they are on a long twelve match unbeaten streak for from now. Away from home, they have done tremendously well with an eleven match unbeaten sequence. Stack that up with the lack of winning form by the Owls and the Rams don’t look likely to lose this. Derby’s defence has been very good away from home, conceding an average of under a goal per game, while going forward they have netted an average of 1.5 goals themselves per game. Just three times away from home this season have Derby been losing at half time in a game and even though 60% of their away games have produced more than two goals, under 2.5 goals for the Hillsborough clash for 4/6 odds at William Hill* (Betting Odds taken on February 11th, 2018 at 8:42 p.m.) looks the way to go for this fixture on Tuesday. Seven of Matej Vydra’s seventeen goals for Derby in the league this season have been away from home and he makes a good anytime goalscorer option.
Sheffield Wednesday v Derby Head to Head
The Rams collected a 2-0 win at home over the Owls earlier this season and they have suffered only the one loss in their last nineteen games home and away against Sheffield Wednesday in all competitions. So it has been a strong head to head that they have carried. They lost this corresponding fixture last season though and have failed to win any of their last three visits to Hillsborough in the league (D2 L1), scoring just the one goal in that sequence of games. The Rams have only one win in their last six visits to face Wednesday.
Who will win – Sheffield Wednesday v Derby Predictions
It’s unlikely that the Owls are going to be at full intensity for this one with their FA Cup tie coming up. Derby are a solid enough side to go and take advantage of the situation and land a good win for themselves. It will be a low scoring game most likely so look under 2.5 goals.
