This is a really interesting Championship fixture for Wednesday night. Even though they are bottom of the league, Sheffield Wednesday are doing alright.

After starting the season with a 12-point penalty, they have already cleared off eight of those.

It’s actually been better from them than that Wednesday’s opponents Brentford have produced.

This looks as if it is going to be a good, tight tussle at Hillsborough.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Can Owls remain unbeaten at home?

It has been two draws from two home games by Sheffield Wednesday so far in the Championship campaign.

It has been a pretty solid effort from the Owls so far with a W2 D2 L1 record on the board from their five games.

They had a 12 point deficit to make up at the start of the season.

A win in midweek would leave them on -1 points and with everything to play for.

On the weekend they picked up their second league win of the season, a 1-0 success at Birmingham.

It has only been the three goals that Sheffield Wednesday have conceded so far in this campaign.

So they have been pretty tight and under 2.5 goals is at 4/5 for this game* (odds taken 03:12 GMT Tuesday, 20th October).

The one big question mark over the Owls is going to be their home form.

They have failed to win any of their last eight league home games in the Championship.

But on the flip side of that, they have won five of their last six at home against Brentford across all competitions.

Actually the Owl have scored at least two goals in each of their last three at Hillsborough against the Bees.

Garry Monk’s men are 12/5 to pick up the home win and snap that miserable streak* (odds taken 03:12 GMT Tuesday, 20th October).

That doesn’t look an unreasonable proposition here in this game at all.


Brentford Preview – Bees look for an away win

It has been just the one point from two away fixtures for Brentford this season.

The first of those was a loss at Birmingham, who Sheffiled Wednesday just beat on the weekend.

The point came in a draw at Millwall.

Brentford have taken a W2 D1 L2 record this season and have won just one of their last three.

That success came on the weekend with a 2-0 win at home over Coventry.

Brentford are on a four match scoring streak at the moment and they have scored at least two goals in three of their last four.

For Championship football betting, Brentford are the 23/20 favourites in the match outright* (odds taken 03:12 GMT Tuesday, 20th October).

But while they do have scoring form, they are yet to keep a clean sheet on the road.

Plus the recent head to head isn’t in their favour, having lost their last three trips to Hillsborough.

So we think that this looks a fairly evenly-matched contest at the end of the day.

To support that is the fact that Brentford’s last four away games in the Championship have all ended under 2.5 goals as well.

They did have an easy time of things on the weekend against a poor Coventry defence, so they should be fairly sharp.

They will get a stiffer test against the Owls.

But they have yet to get themselves going on the road and therefore we can see a bit of a stalemate playing itself out.


Sheffield Wednesday vs Brentford Betting Advice

The draw has the most appeal in this fixture especially after having just played on the weekend as well.

We can see this petering out into a stalemate as there is nothing really to choose between them.

The Owls have no winning home form to speak of and Brentford are seeking their first away win of the campaign.


Key Facts – Sheffield Wednesday vs Brentford Betting Tip

  • Sheffield Wednesday have not won any of their last 8 league home games
  • Sheffield Wednesday have won their last three against Brentford
  • Brentford are yet to claim an away win this campaign


We are also going to swing with this being a low scoring game as well, so we have to look under 2.5 goals at 4/5* (odds taken 03:12 GMT Tuesday, 20th October).

But going back to the outcome, the draw in the match outright for a quote of 12/5 is certainly the odds with the most appeal there* (odds taken 03:12 GMT Tuesday, 20th October).
