Reason For Sheffield Wednesday vs Brentford Betting Tips

  • Both sides are within reach of the top 6 going into the weekend.
  • Sheffield Wednesday haven’t beaten a side who are higher than 17th in the league.
  • Brentford have won 6 of their last 8 in the league.
  • Under 2.5 goals has landed in 78% of the Owls’ home games.

Bee Line for Playoffs

Both sides head into this weekend with an eye on the playoffs. Brentford are up in seventh and they’re just a point off the top six, while Sheffield Wednesday are only a point further back after some decent form.

However, could the arrival of playoff contenders Brentford throw the hosts off their game? This is a major test for the hosts, who don’t exactly have a great record behind them overall this term.

Testing Times for Owls

The hosts have put together a decent home record on paper, but there’s still room for improvement as they head deeper into the season. Sheffield Wednesday have certainly had a kind fixture list so far, as they’ve already met all of the bottom 10 this term. That leaves them facing some strong teams as we head towards Christmas and there’s a clear pattern emerging.

The hosts have claimed four home wins this season, with all four of those coming against the current bottom four. All eight of their league wins have come against the bottom eight. Above that, their record is played 11, lost six. The fact that three of their last four opponents are in the top seven should really worry the home side.

Bees on the March

The visitors come into this clash following a fine 7-0 home win over Luton, while they’ve started to make an impact on their travels. The visitors have climbed into the top six in terms of away results this season, which is quite an improvement on last season’s terrible travelling form. The hosts are in great form in the league, which has helped turn things around.

Brentford have won six of their last eight Championship games (L2) – no side has won more over this period in the competition. They head here with three wins in four trips, scoring three times in each of those wins. The Bees are a strong attacking force while Sheffield Wednesday continue to slip up against anyone other that the weakest sides.

We are backing Brentford Draw No Bet here, given Wednesday’s poor record against the top two-thirds of the division. Meanwhile, the Bees have conceded less than a goal per game this term, while the Owls have seen under 2.5 goals in 78% of their home league games. We expect a low-scoring away victory, so we’ve backed a 2-1 win for Brentford.
