Leeds United vs Sheffield Wednesday draw odds: 4.00
Sheffield Wednesday win odds: 6.50
Correct Score odds
Bielsa has seen his Leeds team get 12 goals in the last six home games whereas Wednesday are unbeaten in the last six away matches. However, Steve Bruce’s defensive tactics should be a damper when it comes to expecting goals out of the away team. At the same time, Leeds have not been very solid with one clean sheet in four matches. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Leeds 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There has been a lot of entertainment in matches involving Leeds United of late. Since February, Elland Road has witnessed just one low scoring encounter. Even though Wednesday are not impressive going forward under Steve Bruce, the three-goal haul in the recent win over Nottingham Forest will be a source of confidence. Leeds do not remain defensively solid. Hence, our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Patrick Bamford came up with a brace against Preston to hand Leeds United with a crucial win. These were the first goals for the 25-year-old in his last five matches. Even then, Bamford has gone through a decent run since February, as he has scored six goals in his last nine matches. Bamford may have scored only once against Wednesday, but our first goalscorer prediction would go with the former Chelsea forward.
