Match Preview & Team News
The Owls have collected seven points in the last three outings, managing to beat Coventry City and Middlesbrough at this venue, while the outcome of away day versus Blackburn Rovers was draw. They need only three more points to be over the red line after a very long time. Derby County were also victorious in the last appearance, demolishing Birmingham City. Read on our Championship betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
If there was no pre-season penalty issued by the FA, Sheffield Wednesday would have 22 points total right now. The biggest issue for the Owls throughout majority of this campaign is low efficiency – they have bagged only 14 goals in 22 appearances, which is making them the worst team in the league when it comes to this segment. As mentioned above, the recent performances have been really good. Tom Lees was the only scorer versus Coventry, while he also served assists against Middlesbrough. All in all, he is probably the best player in the roster at the moment.
As for the opposition, Derby County have suffered only one defeat in the last eight divisional games, managing to beat Millwall, Swansea City and Birmingham. Colin Kazim-Richards is their man in charge for leadership, scoring two times in the last three games.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Five out of the last seven head to head meetings between Sheff Wed and Derby County have ended with BTTS. We fancy this bet for Friday’s clash too. The price is just too good to be missed at 11/10.
Sheffield Wednesday stood against some really rough teams in the last 30 days. Derby are also looking sharp, but not so consistent as hosts. We will back Owls with a double chance as the secondary betting tip.
