Reason For Derby vs Sheffield Wednesday Predictions

  • Wednesday are into sixth, but they face a difficult test in midweek.
  • The visitors have bounced back from their tough summer, but they are priced too short for this trip.
  • Wednesday have failed to win at a side placed above 15th, while Derby have the 7th best home record in the league.
  • The hosts are unbeaten in 8 at home, having won 4 of their last 6 meetings with Wednesday here.

Derby Searching for Wednesday Win

Sheffield Wednesday have leapt into the top-six in the Championship, but can they maintain their form? They have a tricky visit to Pride Park to navigate this week, with the hosts aiming to continue their impressive return at this ground.

Wednesday are chasing another victory as they look to strengthen their grip on sixth, but the Rams could cut a seven-point gap here as they prepare for a future with Wayne Rooney in tow in 2020.

Owls Moving on up

Sheffield Wednesday looked to be in turmoil during the summer, with the shock departure of Steve Bruce leaving the club shaken days before the start of the season. However, they made the move for Garry Monk and so far it has paid off for the Owls.

Wednesday are into the top six thanks to their form under the former Birmingham boss, having won back to back games ahead of this clash. He’s taken advantage of a softer run of fixtures, which has pushed the club towards the top. That’s put them in the frame for a playoff push if they can maintain this form. However, their away record suggests there could be problems on the horizon for the Owls.

Rams to Continue Run

Monk may have his men in the search for a playoff spot, but that doesn’t quite justify their short price here. Their away wins have all come against sides sitting towards the bottom of the Championship, having claimed one point in six matches against sides from 15th and above. While the Rams are in the bottom half, they have the league’s seventh-best home record.

The hosts have lost only once at home this term, winning five of 10 clashes. They’ve won those five in their last six games here, with an eight-game unbeaten run behind them at Pride Park. Meanwhile, Wednesday have lost five of their 10 trips this season, with the Rams winning four of the last six clashes between these two here. Following that run the hosts look well priced on the Draw No Bet market.

All of Sheffield Wednesday’s defeats this season have come by a single goal. Meanwhile, Derby have won by a one-goal margin in 60% of their wins at this ground, backed up by a solid defensive return. The Rams have a clean sheet in all but one of their victories at home, while the Owls have scored only once in their last three visits here. As a result, a 1-0 home win is our correct score prediction for this one.
