Tip Reasoning

  • No team in League One can better Wednesday’s’ PPG at home this season
  • Portsmouth have won two away league games in 2022
  • Sheffield Wednesday are unbeaten in their last seven home matches

Draw may not be enough for Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday go into the final day of the season knowing a win will secure them a spot in the League One play-offs. Whilst unlikely, should Darren Moore’s side lose on Saturday and the three sides immediately below them all win, then The Owls would miss out on the play-offs altogether.

Wednesday can lean on their fantastic home record this season going into Saturday’s crunch game – no team in League One has a better PPG at home this season and a victory on Saturday would seal the best home record in the division over the course of the season. Sheffield Wednesday have lost once at home in 2022 and are fancied to do what is needed to secure a play-off berth when they welcome Portsmouth to Hillsborough on Saturday.

Pompey have struggled on the road

In stark contrast to Sheffield Wednesday’s home form in 2022, Portsmouth have won on the road just twice in the league since the turn of the year. Danny Cowley’s side have failed to win any of their last five away matches, what is most concerning is that Portsmouth have score twice in those five fixtures. Portsmouth have nothing to play for now, with a top-half finish already secured, the Pompey players may find motivation hard to come by for the long trip north.

The hosts have everything to play for on Saturday and I will be backing sides on Saturday whose fates are yet to be decided. Backing Sheffield Wednesday on the -1 Handicap will be the main selection for this one. The hosts have been strong at home all season and may run riot with a full Hillsborough crowd behind them. The correct score prediction for Saturday’s clash will be a 3-0 home win, Portsmouth have found goals hard to come by on the road recently.
