Match Preview & Team News
The bad run was finally interrupted last weekend with a home victory against Bristol City. Can Royals maintain 5th and maybe progress towards the top three spots this Wednesday? They are visiting Hillsborough to face The Owls, squad which is doomed to battle against relegation since the start and penalty they received. All in all, we should witness an interesting clash. Read on our Championship betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Sheffield Wednesday’s position wouldn’t change drastically even if there was no penalty issued by the Football Association. They would skip only four positions, which would still mean battle against relegation. A big majority of their games, seven out of the last eight to be precise, have ended with very small number of goals, so this might be an useful info for the goals market. Overall, The Owls are not an easy team to beat. They have three draws, one loss and one victory in the last five outings. We find them to be one of the most unpredictable teams in the league.
As for Veljko Paunovic’s side, Reading have spent so much time as the table leader so it is a bit weird to see them as 5th. Lucas Joao has saved them numerous times in critical moments, directly securing at least seven points in the stoppage time so far. Portuguese striker has bagged nine goals this season. Royals definitely recovered from back to back losses against Preston, Stoke and AFC Bournemouth. Dispatching Bristol City was exactly what team needed.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
As mentioned above, Sheffield Wednesday are placing a lot more focus on defending in their Championship matches. This said, we fancy the Under 2.5 FT bet option at 4/6 odds.
Draw or away win double chance seems like one of the biggest banker bets available for Wednesday night. Reading have returned to winning ways, and we highly doubt they will be defeated at Hilssborough.
