This is how the bookies have set up the Sheffield Wednesday vs Preston odds:

Sheffield Wednesday odds: 6/4 (2.50) – 40%

Draw odds: 9/4 (3.25) – 30.8%

Preston odds: 9/5 (2.80) – 35.7%

The odds are set for this crunch match as Sheffield Wednesday has been proclaimed the expected winner by the bookmakers. The probability is, however, quite low in that aspect with the 40 percent marker. This kind of thinking is not surprising because Sheffield has failed to win any of their two games thus far this season. You can check out the latest picks and predictions on our football betting tips today page and here are some suggestions for this Sheffield Wednesday vs Preston clash: BTTS during the First-Half can bring you odds up to 5/1 (5.00) – 20% while Goal Range 4-5 is priced at 12/5 (3.40) – 29.4%.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Preston Lineups, Team News, and Match Preview

Sheffield Wednesday

If the first two games are any indication of the season Sheffield Wednesday will have, then things are not looking good. They have lost both times while conceding a massive six goals. Ciaran Brennan is out through injury.

Possible lineup: Vasquez Llach, Iorfa, Diaby, Ihiekwe, Famewo, Paterson, Bakinson, Bannan, Delgado, Gregory, Windass.

Preston

After going winless in four straight games, it was finally a good day for Preston fans whose team defeated Sunderland last week to earn their first victory of the season. Ched Evans and Emil Riis Jakobsen are out with injury issues.

Possible lineup: Woodman, Hughes, Lindsay, Storey, Best, Ledson, McCann, Potts, Frokjaer, Browne, Keane.

Player to Watch: Will Keane

A familiar name in English football, Will Keane has been through plenty of clubs since starting his career at the Man Utd U18 squad and slowly moving toward the first team. The 30-year-old is playing for Preston these days and has started the season well by scoring two league goals. He joined Preston from Wigan just over a month ago and made an immediate impact.

During his ten-year career, Keane played for QPR, Hull City, and Ipswich among other clubs scoring a total of 105 goals throughout 311 matches. His most prolific days were featured during Wigan's tenure where he managed to get 50 goals in 133 appearances. He was capped four times by Ireland national team.
