Betting Preview: Sheffield Wednesday

Principle partners look ahead to tonight's encounter

26 February 2019

After a five-star performance over the weekend, Brentford next head to Sheffield to face a Wednesday side sitting just one point above the Bees. Brentford were irresistible against Hull on the weekend and are now priced at 9/4 to score in both halves at Hillsborough with LeoVegas SPORT.

Weekends like the last are ones to savour. A big win was long overdue following Brentford's attacking dominance in their recent games, and efficiency in front of goal was the difference at last. Having registered 25 attempts on goal and 10 shots on target, with five hitting the back of the net, the Bees produced some excellent, bright, attacking football with Hull City having no answer.

A pleased Thomas Frank hailed Fortress Griffin Park and paid tribute to the fans as well as the forward players who provided such a threat throughout the 90 minutes. The mood around the club is fantastic and with a big week ahead this can be the perfect spring board.

Sheffield Wednesday are also enjoying their own positive turn in form and are on a six-game unbeaten run in the league. They were equally brilliant as they put three past Swansea and their last defeat came back in January, against Hull City.

Said Benrahma tamed the Tigers with a fantastic hat-trick, and we can’t help but back him to score again with odds of 49/20 to find the net at any time. Brentford have now only lost once in their last 10 games, collecting six wins on that run, will that run continue away defeat to Sheffield Wednesday? Three points would leap-frog them in the table and can, if all other results go our way, push us back into the top half of the Championship table. Brentford have scored the sixth highest number goals in the league, and this good run has set a new standard.

The last two encounters between the sides saw Brentford grab 2-0 wins, and a repeat score line is priced at 10/1. You can also look at our Exact Winning Margin market, where you can select the goal difference at the end of the game. Brentford winning by one goal is price at 16/5.

Leo's Prediction: Sheffield Wednesday 1-3 Brentford, priced at 15/1

Goal scorers: Fancy another Said-stunner? Get him at 13/2 to score first.
