Huddersfield Town will fancy their chances of extending their 100% home record when they host the Owls on Sunday, though their form in this fixture is less than impressive.

Wednesday completed a league double over them last term and the Terriers have won only two of the pair’s last 10 league games.

Nonetheless, it’s no surprise to see Huddersfield priced as the bookies’ favourites; they’re 6/4 to win with Unibet, odds that appeal considering that no team in the Championship’s top half has scored fewer away goals than the Owls. Punters expecting this run to continue on Saturday can get 2/1 (888sport) against Huddersfield retaining a clean sheet.

Yet as the betting data experts at betbonuscode.org point out, each of Huddersfield’s five successive home victories have been secured by a single goal margin, a statistic which enhances the appeal of both the stalemate (9/4, Paddy Power) and Wednesday’s 21/10 match win odds posted by Marathonbet.

Each of Wednesday’s last half dozen outings have been settled by a single goal and bullish punters, perhaps mindful of Huddersfield’s indifferent performances in this fixture, may consider running the rule over Paddy Power’s 10/3 for the Owls to enjoy a one-goal margin of victory, or perhaps the massive 61/10 chalked by 188bet about them emerging victorious following a drawn opening period.

Sheffield Wednesday would probably take a point from Sunday’s clash (a 1-1 draw is priced at 6/1 by Winner.com), though it’s worth noting that while bet365 post a tempting 8/1 against a 1-0 away win, Betfred’s 6/1, posted about it finishing 1-0 in Huddersfield’s favour has attracted a greater weight of punters’ cash.
