Sheffield Wednesday vs Bristol City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) game features two sides in good form in the English second tier. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Sheffield Wednesday won their second straight game picking up an impressive three points at Aston Villa. They did the damage early thanks to two goals in the first 23 minutes one from Adam Reach and the other from Jordan Rhodes. Bristol City made it three straight league victories and four in all competitions as they defeated Cardiff 2-1 in their last match before the break. Callum O’Dowda and Aden Flint got the goals for the Robins as they picked up three points and local bragging rights. The two meetings between the pair last season saw the Owls take four points as they drew 2-2 at Ashton Gate and won 3-2 at Hillsborough. The Robins though have lost on just two of their last seven visits to Wednesday.

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is hard to argue with the prices on offer here these two sides are likely to finish near or around each other somewhere in the top ten. The Owls are starting to find their feet but have not shown enough at home to be backed while the Robins have shown too much away to be backed against. Each of the last six Wednesday games have seen a total of two or three goals while this is four of five for Bristol City so backing the total goals to be either two or three is the first recommended bet. The other market I like is in the goalscorer markets where Bobby Reid has four in his last five on his travels and I think he should be backed here against a home side who are without a clean sheet in five.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview

Seven points from their last three fixtures has given a massive boost to the reign of Carlos Carvalhal which seemed in danger of coming to an end. The Owls are now in 11th place and this is the only one of their next five against a team in the top eight. At Hillsborough, they have been strong winning four times, drawing three and losing just the once. Eight of their nine in all competitions at home have seen both teams find the back of the net. The 21 goals the Yorkshire outfit have netted gives them a middle ranking attack and is led by Gary Hooper who has seven. The defence has conceded 19 which is also a middle ranking and they have kept just two clean sheets this season.

Bristol City Preview

It is now three straight league victories for Bristol City who sit in fourth place and after a third of the season gone look like being promotion contenders rather than involved in a relegation battle like most had expected. Away from Ashton Gate, they have been excellent with just one defeat all season and they have picked up more road points than anyone else in the division. Only once have they failed to score on their travels this season. They have scored 26 times this campaign which is the joint third highest in the division and is led by Bobby Reid who has nine goals. Their defence has shipped 16 times which gives them the sixth best record and they have kept six clean sheets.
