Darren Moore’s Sheffield Wednesday welcome Alex Neil’s Sunderland to Hillsborough in EFL Cup first-round action on Wednesday night.

In fact, the EFL League One Owls are the slight favourites to get the win. Take a look at the latest odds and top tips in our betting preview.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Owls to fly into second round?

Sheffield Wednesday will still be hurting from their play-off semi-final defeat to Sunderland in May. Promotion will once again be the main aim for the Owls this term, and Darren Moore’s men are one of the favourites.

Wednesday have kicked off their 2022-23 campaign in decent fashion, collecting four points from a possible six. After a thrilling 3-3 draw with Portsmouth on the opening weekend, the Sheffield side edged past MK Dons last time out, with Josh Windass scoring the only goal of the game at Stadium MK.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1820 GMT, Tuesday 9 August)

Sheffield Wednesday will want to maintain their unbeaten start and progress in the EFL Cup in midweek. The home side are the bookies’ favourites in this one at 7/5.

Sunderland Preview – Black Cats to exit the cup on Wednesday?

Sunderland have also kicked off their campaign with four points from two games. On their long-awaited return to the Championship, the Mackems picked up a 1-1 draw with Coventry City at the Stadium of Light on matchday one.

Sunderland were then involved in a five-goal thriller with Bristol City at Ashton Gate last weekend. Alex Neil’s boys were 1-0 up and then 2-1 down in Bristol. However, after bringing themselves level, Ross Stewart hit the winner 18 minutes from time.
