Sheffield Wednesday have lost just one of their last eight games and they have an even better record when you focus on their matches at Hillsborough, where the Owls have won all seven in League One.
Tackling Brentford, Gary Megson’s men are odds-on favourites at 17/20 with Sportingbet while Totesport make the Bees 7/2 to put the first blemish on the Owls’ home record. Brentford emerged triumphant here in the corresponding fixture last season and that could influence the thinking of sceptics but as last week’s triumph against Chesterfield was only the visitors’ second in nine attempts, Megson’s troops are 15/2 with Skybet to finish on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline and bet365 chalk 11/4 against a Wednesday victory by a one-goal margin.
Those expecting a more comfortable triumph for the Owls can head to the handicaps, where Stan James reckon the hosts by a goal at odds of 9/4, a 3-1 triumph (12/1, Totesport) would ensure that wager is a winner while Boylesports price Megson’s men at 7/4 to be in front at the end of each half.
Sheffield United have drawn three of their last five and Betdaq offer odds of 3.4 (12/5) for the Blades to tie at Stevenage. The hosts have taken 10 points from the last available 12 and they’re 6/1 via Betfred to hold United 1-1 at Broadhall Way, where United can be backed at even money in Paddy Power’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market.
More confident fans of course will prefer to tackle Ladbrokes’ 7/4 chalked against an away win while Partybets rate a United success after an even first half at 9/2.
