The Owls are currently in sixth place on 19 points with 12 games done and the odds that they'll still be inside the top six at the end of the 2018/19 season are 9/1.

South Yorkshire rivals Rotherham are only fancied as 200/1 chances to get to the play-offs, while Steel City rivals Sheffield United are at 2/5.

Luhukay's side are yet to keep a clean sheet this season but the Dutchman says he doesn't mind as long as they keep scoring them at the other end '“ the bookies have odds of 250/1 on the Owls ending the season as the top scoring side.
