It has been another jam-packed and hectic weekend of football with Champions League group matches played on Tuesday and Wednesday before the Europa League fixtures filled up Thursday’s fixture list. Here are our top Sheffield Wednesday v Leeds betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
We also had an entertaining round of matches from the English Championship in midweek and that was great news for accumulator backers who were eager to land a blow on the bookies. How will teams from the second tier of English football cope with playing their second game of the week? We’ll find out on Saturday and Sunday.
The show opens at 12.30pm on Saturday afternoon as Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United do battle live in front of the Sky Sports cameras. You can sit back and enjoy the fight for three points as an interested spectator or take advantage of the many exciting betting markets, offered both pre-match and in-play. There’s lots to get involved with here.
Leeds Have a Shot
The traders have had their say on what is expected to be a competitive contest and they are throwing the weight of their support behind the chances of an away win. Punters in agreement with that stance will find Leeds doing the rounds at 23/20 with 888Sport. That’s good enough to back as a single or it can be used to boost your accas. The locals are 12/5 – top price at Bet365 – with a draw yours at 12/5 with the same firm, if you can’t split them.
We understand where the bookies are coming from when supporting Leeds but feel they have been a little too hasty in writing off the draw. We’re happy to have our cash down on the level finish as it’s bigger than it should be.
