Match Preview & Team News
Surprisingly, home team has been labeled as the warm favorite to win the match at 11/10 rate and advance to the 4th round. Exeter are currently competing in League Two without a lot of success, sitting in 10th place on the table with 31 points from 19 games. Still, they should definitely try to take advantage of current situation and eliminate Owls. Read on our FA Cup betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Unlike the visitors, Exeter City were forced to play in the opening two rounds of this competition. It started with a narrow 2-1 home victory against Fylde. The winning goal in that match was scored by Alex Hartridge. The next encounter was against Gillingham on the road, ending in 5-goals thriller and 3-2 victory for Exeter. This time Joel Randal was the MVP with two goals. As for the recent form, squad has won only one out of the last five fixtures across all competitions.
If there was no penalty issued by the Football Association, Sheffield Wednesday wouldn’t worry so much about relegation. The Owls are currently sitting on the edge with 19 points from 23 games. The recent form hasn’t been bad at all, featuring back to back victories versus Derby County and Middlesbrough.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Seven out of the last nine FA Cup matches for Sheffield Wednesday ended with low number of goals. A big majority of their main strikers won’t be available for Saturday, so we feel confident picking Under 2.5 bet.
Exeter City have been a mess recently, so even with weakened squad, we fancy the Sheff Wed to qualify betting tip currently offered at incredible 6/5 rate.
