It has West Brom at the top of the table on 81 points and Middlesbrough as the second automatically promoted team with 78 points.
The Owls, who are currently 12th in the Championship table, are predicted to reach a tally of 60Â points and currently have a 12% chance of reaching the play-offs according to the statistics.
Jos Luhukay's side are anticipated to win 16Â matches this season and draw 13Â with 17Â predicted defeats.
