Sheffield Wednesday vs Rochdale: Our top betting tips

Sheffield Wednesday should be winning this game but will they? Find out with our Sheffield Wednesday vs Rochdale match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Wednesday win to nil incoming

On one hand, we have a Sheffield Wednesday side that won four of their last five games; they've been very solid defensively, with four clean sheets in that five-game stretch. On the other hand, we have a Rochdale team that suffered five losses in their last five matches; they've mostly struggled in front of goal, with no goals scored in their last three matches. Also, these teams don't play in the same division, as Sheffield Wednesday are a League One side, while Rochdale play in League Two. On that note, Sheffield Wednesday should win; considering Rochdale's lack of goals, Sheffield Wednesday should keep another clean sheet as well.

Don't bank on many goals

We've already established that Sheffield Wednesday have not conceded many goals lately; they've allowed just two goals in their last five matches in all competitions. As a result, Sheffield Wednesday's games have mostly been low-scoring matches; as all of their last five matches saw less than three goals scored. We've also mentioned that Rochdale failed to score in their last three games; and like Sheffield Wednesday, Rochdale have had their fair share of low-scoring games. Four of Rochdale's last five matches went under 2.5. All things considered, we shouldn't expect a lot of goals in this match.

Wednesday should be comfortable victors

Sheffield Wednesday are one of the favourites to win promotion from League One but their fans still expect them to win cup games like this. Rochdale meanwhile will travel to Hillsborough knowing their hosts will need an off day for them to grab a result. Will The Owls leave the door ajar for their visitors?

Sheffield Wednesday have enjoyed some fine form in recent weeks; they have won four of their last five matches, in all competitions. It's even more impressive considering Sheffield Wednesday kept four clean sheets in that five game stretch; they'll look to get their fifth win in six games as Rochdale come calling.

Sheffield Wednesday Predicted lineup – Stockdale, Iorfa, Ihiekwe, McGuinness, Palmer, Byers, Bannan, Bakinson, Johnson, Windass, Gregory

This season has not been too kind on Rochdale so far; they are coming off three consecutive losses, with six losses in their last seven matches. What's more? Rochdale did not score a single goal in their last three games; will they be able to arrest their losing streak here?

Rochdale Predicted lineup – O'Donnell, Seriki, Nelson, Ebanks-Landell, John, Kelly, Diagouraga, Ball, Rodney, Henderson, Odoh
