Reason For Sheffield Wednesday vs Birmingham Betting Tips

  • Birmingham visit the new home of former boss Garry Monk.
  • Monk left Birmingham in the summer after a successful, but troubled, spell in charge.
  • Monk’s Wednesday are aiming to build on a run of 4 home wins from 8 games.
  • Birmingham have lost 7 of their last 9 away trips.

Dedicated Monk

Wednesday night offers Sheffield Wednesday a chance to get back on track and add to their impressive home form. The Owls are favourites for this midweek meeting with Birmingham, but can they live up to their favourites tag in this clash? There’s certainly a little extra motivation for them to do that, as Garry Monk meets his former side.

There’s plenty besides that as Monk looks to guide his new team into the top six fight, but expect the main focus here to be on the rivalry between the Wednesday boss and his former employers.

Blues Get Heated

The visitors dispensed of Monk in the summer, causing outrage from many. The manager had achieved plenty with his former side, but the Blues made claims about some behind the scenes issues which distorted the picture. Both sides have quickly moved on, with Birmingham in 15th under Pep Clotet. Meanwhile, Monk has guided his side to within four points of the playoffs.

The Owls boss will want to prove a point against his former side, while this game comes at the perfect time for him. While there are extra plotlines running through this clash, there’s an opportunity for Wednesday to fix some mixed form and add to their four home wins this term.

Owls Back to Their Best

The hosts have gone four games without winning, a run which has slightly hit their hopes of making the top six this term. However, Wednesday have held high-flying sides Leeds and Swansea to draws at home in that time. The Owls are unbeaten in their last five home league games, a run which they’re out to extend this week.

The good news for Wednesday is that they’re meeting one of the league’s worst travellers. Birmingham have won once in their last eight in the league, while they’ve lost seven of their last nine trips in all competitions. The Blues have an extremely poor away record in the Championship, which is perfect for a Wednesday side who have taken advantage of weak teams.

The hosts have beaten each of the league’s bottom seven, so they should be confident against one of the division’s worst away sides. We’re backing a home win as our tip here, while we’re backing a 2-0 home victory given that Wednesday have kept a clean sheet in 62% of their home matches this season.
