Sheffield Wednesday vs Sunderland Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Wednesday evening (19:45) Championship game features two of the best supported sides in the division. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips, betting odds, free bets and match stats. Wednesday got their first point of the season with a 1-1 home draw to QPR last time out. They went one down but Sam Winnall levelled after the interval but that was where the scoring ended as they struggled to break down a well organized opposition. Sunderland gave their long-suffering travelling support a huge boost when they defeated Norwich 3-1 on Sunday. Lewis Grabban was the man of the hour netting twice in the Canaries net (and once in his own) while Aiden McGeady grabbed one. These two sides have not met for over a decade now but when they did it was Sunderland who had the better record with the Black Cats winning each of the last four head-to-head meetings.

Sheffield Wednesday v Sunderland Betting Tips and Predictions

These two teams have had differing starts but over the course of the season I expect them to finish close to each other. Therefore, I think the price on the home win looks appealing. Around 50% of games in the Championship were won by home sides last season and Wednesday were a strong team at their own ground and I think fortunes can change here so take them for victory. We might have to wait a little for the first goal as both teams play cautious football and the NO goal before 32.00 makes sense. Follow my predictions below.

Match betting tip: Sheff Wed to win the game

Goals prediction: NO goal before 32:00

Sheffield Wednesday v Sunderland Betting Odds

With such a short turn around the bookies and punters have been rushing to price these up after the weekend fixtures, the bookies have Sheff Wed as slight favourites for this game as they are priced at 23/20 probably reflecting the above-mentioned home form. Sunderland are priced at 27/10 to win showing that a Sunderland win is not expected as its priced around the same as a draw. As mentioned above it's unlikely to have goals this game and this is reflected in the odds with over 2.5 goals priced as 23/20. The favourite correct score bet here is 1-1 which is priced at 5/1.
