Sheffield United v Sheffield Wednesday predictions and tips

An action-packed weekend from the English Championship gets started on Friday night, and what a match we have in store, with Sky Sports bringing us every kick from Bramall Lane, where fierce rivals Sheffield United take on Sheffield Wednesday. This will be the second meeting of the pair this season, with armchair fans hoping for a repeat of last time, when United won 4-2 in a real advert for football at this level. Both teams to score again is surely worth an interest, and you can have even money when getting involved at Paddy Power. The Blades are favourites to make home advantage count, 5/6 with the same firm.

Sheff Weds have lost four of their last five, and each of their last two. A miserable first-half of the season has The Owls kicking their heels down in 16th, six points better than relegation. They have already shed their manager, replacing Carvalhal with Jos Luhukay, the former Hertha Berlin boss. Will fans get the desired effect, the newbie bringing about instant improvement? A derby win would surely be the best possible start. Wednesday are second favourites for the points, 888Sport confident enough to offer an eye-catching 18/5. Half of the last four renewals have ended in a draw, the same again is 13/5 (Bet Victor).

Sheffield United vs Sheffield Wednesday – Championship predictions

Wednesday are better than their lowly league position would have you believe, and we don’t think United are as good as their seventh place suggests. But who will prove us wrong? Home advantage should have a big say in how this match goes, but it’s worth knowing that both teams scored in five of the last six, and we’ll take this to fall into line. Evens at Paddy Power is better than I expected to find, and we’ll have a go in our betting tips.

Correct score, for more of a price, and we’ll have United 3-1 in our predictions at interest stakes. Plenty of luck needed there, of course, but if the locals, backed by a vocal support, can get their noses in front early, it’ll open this contest up. Bet Victor is the place to bet, if you rate our chances, as they’re top price 17/1.
