Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Can the Owls extend form?

It’s a three-match winning streak that Sheffield Wednesday have put together in League One.

They didn’t concede a single goal in that streak either.

The Owls have banked three straight home wins as well, a clean sheet being earned by them in their last two.

Overall it has been a great season by Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

Their league record there is W8 D4 L1 this season.

The one loss happened against top-five side Oxford back in early October last year.

It’s been a run of nine straight home matches for Wednesday without defeat, winning six of those.

So they are a very good strong home team.

In the match outright for League One betting, the win for Sheffield Wednesday is at 27/20* (odds recorded 20:02 GMT on 6th February 2022 at Bet365).

Can they extend this good home form?

Earlier this season when Sheffield Wednesday went to Wigan, they earned three points in a 2-1 victory.

The Owls have won four of their five matches (home and away) against the current top-four teams.

A feature of their home form has been a very good defensive record.

The Owls have conceded at an average of 0.77 goals per home league game this season.

Just 38% of league fixtures at Hillsborough this season have made it over 2.5 goals.


Wigan Preview – Latics remain strong

The last time that Wigan lost a league game was in October last year, a home loss against Lincoln.

They have been steaming along since then.

It’s a twelve match unbeaten streak of league form by Wigan since then, winning eight of those twelve.

In their most recent form, Wigan have drawn their last two.

A draw at Cheltenham in their last away game snapped a four-match winning streak that the Latics had been on away from home.

They rate as an obvious danger of course and Wigan are 21/10 in the match outright to land the win* (odds recorded 20:02 GMT on 6th February 2022 at Bet365).

The overall away record of Wigan this season is W10 D2 L1.

There are naturally some strong stats behind that simply wonderful road record.

Wigan have scored at an average of more than two goals per away game this season.

They have also conceded under a goal per road game.

Looking at the respective form of the two, the Latics shouldn’t get an easy game at Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday.

Very interestingly they lack form at Hillsborough.

Wigan have lost their last four visits to Sheffield Wednesday.

But for a team that has gone unbeaten in their last dozen road games, they don’t exactly look likely to fall.
