Fleetwood vs Sheff Wed: Our top betting predictions

The first clash between these two ended all square hence we're doing the dance again and, despite now being away from home, it's Sheffield Wednesday that arrive as big favourites. Will the Owls prove the bookmakers right by easing to a win? Find out with our Fleetwood vs Sheff Wed match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Sheffield Wednesday to win

The first meeting between these two sides might have ended level but we can only see one winner in this game and that's Sheffield Wednesday. Fleetwood have been in a really poor run of form of late with no win in seven having lost six of those games. Sheffield Wednesday meanwhile have been in a really strong run of form. They haven't lost a game inside 90 minutes since October and, more recently, have won eight of their last nine games. In both those runs of form we've mentioned, the solitary draw for each side came against one another. It's fair to say that when these sides take to the grass again, everything points to an away win hence our prediction of the Owls to get the job done.

BTTS – No

Our second prediction for this game is another one that goes against the grain given we find ourselves here due to a 1-1 draw. Despite that, we are betting on at least one team failing to score here as we bet on the ‘no' outcome of the both teams to score market. Fleetwood have seen both teams score in just one of their last five games. Sheffield Wednesday have seen just one of their last four games end with goals at both ends. With those stats considered alongside the odds on offer, which with 888sport are 1/1 (2.00), we feel that ‘no' is definitely the best value betting option.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game and how might that impact your view of our predictions? Let's find out.

Fleetwood odds: 8/3 (3.67) – 27%

Draw odds: 5/2 (3.50) – 29%

Sheff Weds odds: 1/1 (2.00) – 50%

Sheffield Wednesday arrive into this match as favourites but, actually, their price of evens (2.00) is one that will attract a fair few nibbles from punters given what the broader form of both teams look like. The only potential question mark over that is whether or not either side make notable changes to their teams. As for other markets of interest, the both teams to score market sees the bookies pricing ‘yes' as odds on whilst both over and under 2.5 goals are priced south of that even money line.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Fleetwood vs Sheff Weds

Fleetwood

Fleetwood arguably produced their best performance for weeks in the previous meetings between these sides as the earned a replay. With that noted, it wouldn't be much of a surprise to see the same set of players lineup come kick off time on Tuesday evening.

Predicted lineup – Lynch, Andrew, Earl, Nsiala, Rooney, Wiredu, Roberston, Hayes, Vela, Lane, Omochere

Sheff Weds

Sheffield Wednesday had a huge win at the weekend and face another massive game this weekend in two clashes that could define their promotion push in League One. With that noted, a midweek clash isn't what the doctor necessarily ordered and a few changes to their lineup could be seen.

Predicted lineup – Dawson, Palmer, Iorfa, Famewo, Hunt, Adenian, Vaulks, Johnson, Wilks, Paterson, Smith

Starting Lineups

*Starting lineups are usually announced one hour prior to kick off.

Player to watch

Our player to watch in this game is Sheffield Wednesday forward Michael Smith. He's not registered a goal contribution in any of his last four games but, look a tad further back and his stats quickly change with five goal contributions in his last seven outings. He's assisted one and scored four in that period. He could be a difference maker here.
