Sheffield Wednesday vs Wolves predictions- This is a tough game to call. Wolves are the better side and are well on course for promotion as it stands. However Wednesday, despite a poor overall campaign, are still very tough to beat at Hillsborough. They do quite often deliver the goods against the stronger sides too with victories over Leeds and Aston Villa already to their name this term, while they did the double over champions Newcastle last season. Therefore the Full Time result market may be one to avoid here but there is reason to think we could see goals at both ends.
That has tended to be the way of things when the Owls have played this season. 67% of their league games and a huge 80% of their home fixtures have produced goals at both ends of the pitch. A clean sheet ratio of just 19% strongly suggests they will concede at some point against the league’s most potent attack.

Wolves won’t come to park the bus though, which may give Wednesday’s attacking players a bit more space to play in, compared to some previous home matches. Even though the opposition is so strong, a draw won’t really help Sheffield Wednesday out all that much. They are now 10 points off the play-off places and they really need to put a winning run together if their ambitions of a third straight top six finish are to be realistic.
That should help ensure this is a reasonably open game. Wolves you sense, believe they have the beating of anyone in this league but they were frustrated by Sunderland last time out and this is the start of a reasonably testing run of games, with 3 of their final 4 matches of 2017 on the road.
They do have the division’s best away record with 2.2 points per game on average, while they’ve scored 1.95 goals per game overall in the Championship this term, also a league high. Defensively they’ve been pretty solid too but this will be one of their tougher tests with Wednesday averaging 1.7 goals per game at home.
Therefore we have reason to think both sides are well capable of scoring in this match and backing Both Teams to Score looks to offer value.
In terms of the result, it’s a much tougher call and going for a 1-1 Draw might be as good a bet as any in the correct score market. Wednesday had drawn 4 matches in a row prior to their defeat at Norwich last time out and a 1-1 draw is their most common home scoreline this season.
