Sheffield Wednesday entertain Championship leaders West Bromwich Albion in Wednesday’s league meeting at the Hillsborough Stadium. The hosts have picked up a single win since returning from the last international break and this sees them one point adrift of the playoff positions. West Brom, on the other hand, have attained three successive victories and their most recent one helped them jump to the top of the standings. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Wednesday come into the game on the back of a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Leeds United at home. Adam Reach opened the scoring for the hosts prior to the half time whistle before Mateusz Klich equalised for Leeds in the 54th minute.
West Brom, meanwhile, made it three straight wins in the league as they picked up a 3-2 win on the road to Preston North End. The Baggies are now unbeaten in five league matches with four wins and one draw.
Wednesday’s last encounter against West Brom was at the Hawthorns in 2010 which ended in a 1-0 defeat. The last meeting at the Hillsborough Stadium in 2009 also went in West Brom’s favour by a convincing 4-0 scoreline. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for West Brom.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]West Brom win at 2.15[/bet_tip_now]
Wednesday are priced at 3.60 for a home win but we are not backing this outcome against a West Brom side who have been free-scoring since the campaign started. The hosts have been in a rather patchy form since mid-September with just one victory but this should provide West Brom with the edge with their run of three league successive wins coming into this clash. Our preview expects an away win for West Brom.

Correct Score odds
Wednesday have genuinely struggled against West Brom in their recent history and they are without a win against them over the past decade. The trend may continue in midweek when they are scheduled to face for the first time in eight years, as the visitors have flourished upfront with an average of 2.5 goals per game. Our correct score prediction fancies a West Brom 3-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Wednesday have not kept a shutout since the season started and this has witnessed seven of their 10 matches this season involving more than two goals. Wigan’s recent away trip to Preston North End fared similarly as they ran out 3-2 victors. Our total goals prediction anticipates more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Jay Rodriguez has been West Brom’s leading scorer this term with seven goals across all competitions. All of his strikes have come in the space of just four league matches and he has opened the scoring on three occasions. Rodriguez is also the club’s designated penalty taker which increases his prospects of finding the net. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Rodriguez.
