Victory for Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday have not managed a victory in five consecutive matches. Since the narrow win over Portsmouth at the start of March, it has been a barren run for Wednesday who have only managed three points from the last possible 15. This Oxford vs Sheffield Wednesday prediction expects the troubles for Wednesday to continue even further but they should have slightly better quality to overcome a very poor Oxford team.

Total goals less than 2.5

Sheffield Wednesday have lost confidence in front of goal with the team unable to make a major impact in many of the recent games. The Oxford vs Sheffield Wednesday betting tips have witnessed both teams concede nine goals in the last six matches, but Oxford have been terribly poor with only three goals scored during this period. After a goalless draw earlier in the campaign between these two teams, the expectation is for another stalemate.
