Reason For Sheffield Wednesday vs Blackburn Rovers Predictions

  • Blackburn are looking to do the double over Wednesday for the first time since 1995.
  • Rovers have lost 7 of their last 10 away trips.
  • Wednesday have won their last 3 home clashes with Blackburn.
  • The visitors have lost all of their trips to sides in the playoff spots.

Owls Back to Their Best

Sheffield Wednesday returned to form in impressive fashion last weekend, shaking off a run of three straight league defeats to win 2-0 away to Championship leaders Leeds. The Owls sit in the playoffs as a result, but can they build on that huge result as they look to secure their spot in the top six?

This weekend seems nicely set up for the hosts, who are facing a midtable Blackburn side who are having problems with their results of late. When you add in their poor record at this ground, things look good for Garry Monk’s men as they push for another three points at home.

The Mowbray Drop

Having put together a great run going into December, Rovers are on a familiar downward path. Their form since winning promotion in 2018 has been solid enough to keep them from danger, but it’s also been incredibly patchy. They’ve lost three of their last four matches overall, winning once in eight.

A large factor has been the absence of Bradley Dack. Blackburn have won just one of their five league games not to feature Dack this season (20%), compared to 41% with him in the team (9 of 22).

That doesn’t exactly help their chances of a landmark victory over Wednesday. Blackburn are looking to complete a league double over Sheffield Wednesday for the first time since the 1994-95 season, when they won the Premier League title.

Rovers Weak on the Road

Blackburn Rovers have lost seven of their last 10 away games in all competitions (W2 D1 L7), losing each of their last three in a row. They’ve conceded twice away to Birmingham, Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield in that time, with 23 goals conceded across their last 13 matches on the road.

Meanwhile, the visitors have a poor record here. Sheffield Wednesday have won their last three home league games against Blackburn since losing 2-1 in March 2015. The Owls have six home wins to their name this season, while Blackburn have already lost all of their trips to sides in the playoffs. As a result, a home win is our pick here.

All but one of the Owls’ home wins this term have come by a single goal margin, with their big victories mostly coming on the road. The visitors have seen both teams score in their last five matches, while they’ve lost 2-1 twice in their last four games. With Rovers finding the net in 85% of their league games and following Wednesday’s string of narrow wins, we’re going for a 2-1 home victory as our correct score pick.
