Bookies bet against Owls

Have your say

THE 1-0 loss at Nottingham Forest was Sheffield Wednesday’s third straight defeat and although that run hasn’t carried the Owls into the bottom three, they are a worryingly skinny 5/2 with Skybet to ultimately be relegated.

Moreover, things are expected to worsen before they get better for Dave Jones’ troops, who are BetVictor’s 13/5 outsiders ahead of the visit of promotion-chasing Leicester, Stan James’ 21/20 favourites for the points at Hillsborough.

Bet365 quote 5/2 for the spoils to be shared, William Hill post 14/1 against a thrilling 2-2 stalemate.

Sheffield United followed up the emphatic 4-1 triumph over Stevenage with a 3-3 draw against Crewe and the Blades might have to settle for another point at Brentford, where it’s 12/5 (Skybet) to finish all square.

The Bees are very strong at home while Danny Wilson’s troops rarely lose, factors that lend appeal to a 1-1 scoreline, at 11/2 with BetVictor. but in last season’s fixture the Blades notched twice without reply, a repeat of which is a 14/1 shot at bet365.
