The Sheff Wed vs Stoke odds reflect the importance of the game and how similar the two teams are to one another. Sheffield Wednesday are the narrowest of favourites of Saturday and have been given a 38.5% chance of coming out on top while Stoke have a 36.4% chance of winning.

Sheffield Wednesday have had a brilliant second half to the season and have recovered from a perilous position to have a fighting chance of survival. However, they now need to finish the job to make their efforts worthwhile. They won four consecutive matches in February-March and an identical run now would ensure safety.

Stoke have had almost the opposite season to Sheff Wed. They started okay but have fallen off a cliff since Christmas. They recovered in March but their last three games have set alarm bells ringing again. They have failed to win each of their last three matches, but their last two wins in the Championship have come away from home, which will give them some confidence on Saturday.

Other free betting tips for Sheff Wed vs Stoke include Sheff Wed to keep a clean sheet at 15/8 (2.88) and BTTS, No at 17/20 (1.85).

Last five H2Hs: Honours even

It isn't just this season that Sheffield Wednesday and Stoke have been evenly matched, but their record against each other in previous seasons also demonstrates how close the two teams are. Out of their last five H2Hs, Sheff Wed have won two, Stoke have won two and the other finished all square. Interestingly, though, Stoke haven't won away against Sheffield Wednesday since 2005.

Player to watch: Josh Windass

It was Josh Windass who famously scored at the death last summer to send Sheffield Wednesday to the Championship, and they will need him again over the final four games if they are to stay in the division

Time to make his mark

Windass' season has been a frustrating one, with the attacking midfielder's campaign hampered by injuries. He has only netted three goals so far, but he has proven in the past that he is a man for the big occasion, so now should be his time to shine.
