Luton vs Sheffield Wednesday prediction and betting tips for this FA Cup replay match on Tuesday night with a goals prediction and anytime goalscorer included.
Expert Tipster Prediction: Luton were dealt a blow last week when Nathan Jones made the tough decision to leave Kennilworth Road and join Stoke City. Mick Harford kept things ticking over at the weekend courtesy of a 1-1 draw with high flying Sunderland. It was a decent result in a scrappy game and the temporary gaffer must rally his troops for this FA Cup replay with Sheffield Wednesday. The Owls were poor at the weekend and were torn apart by in-form Hull City. Steve Bruce doesn’t take over until March but it looks like he’ll have plenty of work to do when he arrives in South Yorkshire. Luton have been made the favourites for this tie and they have exceptional home form this season. Jones may be gone but they won’t change their style of play and I suspect that they will find a way of booking their place in the fourth round of the competition.
It ended goalless at Hillsborough ten days ago and these two sides will reoppose in Bedfordshire. Mick Harford’s side must continue their fine home form against a decent Championship outfit. They’ve won ten of their first 13 matches at Kennilworth Road and are yet to be defeated here. The only sides to have taken something away from this ground are the three sides who sit directly below them in the table: Barnsley, Sunderland and Charlton. Wednesday will need to be significantly improved today and they could find it tough. They’ve won just four times on the road this campaign with three of those victories arriving before October 7th. After two sensational performances under Lee Bullen, the Owls have struggled in recent weeks and are winless in four in all competitions. Even if it ends all-square here, I think the home crowd will help carry Luton through and they have a number of decent penalty takers in their side. Sheffield Wednesday haven’t won here in thirty years and have failed to beat Luton in any of their last nine meetings. I expect the hosts to book their place in the fourth round and you can back them on the ‘to qualify’ market here. They are the first of our Luton vs Sheffield Wednesday betting tips for Tuesday night.
What are the best odds on Luton to Qualify? 5/6 with William Hill
Whilst of the fans would want to see an end-to-end, pulsating contest to light up a chilly Tuesday night, that may not be the case. Luton have been defending solidly in recent weeks and have conceded just four goals in nine League One games. Meanwhile, Wednesday have been much better since Keiran Westwood returned to the side and since Jos Luhukay was dismissed. They did ship three goals to Hull at the weekend but they kept Middlesbrough off the score-sheet and only conceded once to free-scoring West Brom. I expect Wednesday to be under-the-cosh here and I expect a fast start but I don’t predict there will be too many goals. We’ll plump for 2-3 goals in this one as it would have landed in 5/7 home games for the Hatters and in each of the last three Sheffield Wednesday matches in the second tier. 2-3 Goals Exact is the second of our Luton vs Sheffield Wednesday predictions in the FA Cup.
What is the best price on 2-3 Goals Exactly? 21/20 with Bet Victor.
It was James Collins’ penalty that rescued a point against Sunderland at the weekend but many of Luton’s recent goals in this competition have come from Harry Cornick. The former Bournemouth man has netted in each of the last two rounds and also found the net against Scunthorpe in League One at the end of 2018. He has five league goals with four of them arriving at Kennilworth Road and he make it 3/3 in the FA Cup as well. There are a number of players who could find the net for the hosts today but Cornick looks a decent price to strike. He is the third of our Luton vs Sheffield Wednesday betting tips for the FA Cup.
What is the best price on Harry Cornick to Score Anytime? 15/4 with Betway.
There were no goals when these sides met in South Yorkshire ten days ago although Sheffield Wednesday fired in plenty of shots during that game. The Owls are 11/5 to win this tie although Steve Agnew hasn’t had the greatest start as caretaker. Lee Bullen had got them playing but Agnew’s arrival hasn’t had the desired effect. Luton are priced at 7/5 and are quite rightly priced up as favourites. The draw could be another option and it’s 12/5 to end all square yet again.
Luton have kept nine clean sheets at home this season and they could be hard to breach. It’s 3/4 for Under 2.5 Goals in this one. Over 2.5 Goals will be popular and is priced at 21/20 but it us unlikely to be a goal-fest. There were ten corners when these sides played one another in the third round and Under 10.5 corners can be backed at 10/11.
James Collins will be popular and he is likely to step up from the penalty spot once again. He is 9/2 to break the deadlock here. The goals have dried up for Elliott Lee in recent weeks but he is 5/1 to net the opener. Atdhe Nuhiu is always a nuisance and he feels like the kind of player who may enjoy working under Steve Bruce, when he arrives. The big man is 13/2 to find the net first in this game.
