Will Sheffield Wednesday be able to trip up Sunderland on Tuesday night as they play host to the Black Cats?

It’s five games without a defeat in League One for the Owls as they look to defend home turf.

Sunderland have dropped their last two in the league and need to stop the rot after getting a right hammering on the weekend.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Owls to hold out?

It is a five-match unbeaten streak of form by Sheffield Wednesday in League One, but they have drawn their last four.

On the weekend they paid a visit to Cheltenham and left with a point after a 2-2 draw.

So far this season on home turf, Sheffield Wednesday are W3 D2 L1.

The only team to have gotten the better of them at Hillsborough has been Oxford who are up in the top six where Tuesday’s opponent Sunderland are.

In the match outright for League One football betting, the win for Sheffield Wednesday is at a quote of 7/5* (odds recorded 17:29 GMT 31st October 2021).

Just one of Sheffield Wednesday’s home matches this season have been against a team in the top ten.

That was the aforementioned loss against Oxford.

But in terms of holding their own against strong opposition, they have beaten two of the current top four away from home.

There has been a good defensive output from Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough this season.

They have conceded just four goals in their six matches.

* (odds recorded 17:29 GMT 31st October 2021)


Sheffield Wednesday have tallied up a clean sheet in 50% of their league fixtures at Hillsborough this season.

But looking at their current form, home and away combined, they are without a clean sheet in four.

This may be a tight one and under 2.5 goals is at a quote of 4/5 for football betting* (odds recorded 17:29 GMT 31st October 2021).

Only one-third of the Owls’ matches this season in the league have gone above the line.

This will be the first league meeting between the two clubs since the 2017/18 Championship.

The Owls took four points off Sunderland that season.


Sunderland Preview – Can the Mackems stop their slide?

Sunderland have fallen to back to back league defeats after getting hammered 5-1 at Rotherham on the weekend.

That followed a home loss against Charlton and they are down in the bottom five of the table.

It’s actually a W2 L3 record from the Mackems in their last five League One fixtures.

So there have been vulnerabilities from them, especially after losing just won for their first nine league fixtures of the season.

But looking a little closer at their away form, their three road defeats have been against teams who are 13th or higher currently in the standings.

The Black Cats failed to score in two of those three losses as well.

Collectively across those three league away defeats, Sunderland have conceded ten goals in total.

But they themselves are a big scoring threat on their draw and they are averaging 1.8 goals per league fixtures.

But confidence just has to have been dented a little bit and Sunderland are the 12/5 underdogs* (odds recorded 17:29 GMT 31st October 2021).

They have banked a clean sheet in only 14% of their away games, so there are weaknesses at the back.

It is now one of those awkward situations where avoiding defeat can take preference over pushing hard for a win.

With that in mind, we expect a degree of caution from the visitors.

So the Half Time Draw at 11/10 comes onto the radar for football betting* (odds recorded 17:29 GMT 31st October 2021).

Sunderland have hit the back of the net in each of their last three away games.

They have also been leading at the halftime break in 3 of 7 road fixtures in this League One campaign.

But at the same time, they have scored the opening goal in just 3 of 7 away games.

A draw for the Black Cats may not be a bad return from them on the night against a strong home defensive side.


Sheffield Wednesday vs Sunderland Betting Advice

The home win just takes a little bit of preference in this one. With that in mind, there is a 7/5 quote on Sheffield Wednesday taking the win* (odds recorded 17:29 GMT 31st October 2021)..

The Owls are not a prolific side and are the lowest-scoring team in the current top eight and the only of those one not to have reached 20 goals.

But they have been reliable at the back on home turf this season and may be able to sneak across the line.


Key Facts – Sheffield Wednesday vs Sunderland Betting Tip

  • Sheffield Wednesday are unbeaten in five league fixtures (W1 D4)
  • Sheffield Wednesday have earned a clean sheet in half of their home fixtures
  • Sunderland have lost their last two fixtures


As a bigger play for League One football betting on Tuesday night, it’s all about the margins.

Sheffield Wednesday just don’t look likely to produce a win by a large margin in this one at all.

So it’s the Sheffield Wednesday 1 Goal Winning Margin at 10/3 that is the bigger proposition* (odds recorded 17:29 GMT 31st October 2021).
