Sheffield Wednesday vs Derby County predictions and betting tips for the Championship fixture on Tuesday 13th February with an anytime goalscorer tip and correct score prediction included.
Third placed Derby County travel to Sheffield on Tuesday, to take on the under-achieving Owls at Hillsborough. Wednesday have slightly improved under new boss Jos Luhukay, but with almost a full team of injured players they are struggling to find points and any sort of consistency. Derby come into the game in decent form, although would have hoped for a couple more points from a few drawn games.

Since Luhukay took over at Wednesday, they have had four draws and one loss in the Championship. He has had two wins in the FA Cup though, and there is definitely an air of promise surrounding the approach by the new man, despite two poor results in the last two games. They will be looking to win the game and get some confidence going into this Saturday when ex-boss Carvalhal returns to Hillsborough with Swansea in the Cup. They will struggle against this Derby side though. Although slightly inconsistent, they do sit third in the table with just one point separating them and second placed Villa. The two sides have a combined seven draws in their last five fixtures and I expect this to be no different. The first of our Sheffield Wednesday vs Derby predictions is the Draw.

For our anytime scorer tip we’re going to take a chance on Vydra getting on the scoresheet. He has been in spectacular from this season, scoring 17 league goals, including one against Wednesday earlier on in the season. He has two in his last two and is the best value to score again here. Vydra to score anytime is the second of our Sheffield Wednesday vs Derby betting tips for this week’s Championship match.
My correct score tip to complete these Sheff Wed vs Derby predictions is for a 1-1 draw. Both sides have drawn 1-1 in their last game and also the last time they had a draw with each other it was 1-1. Both sides have reasonably good defences for the majority of the time, but they are both prone to conceding sloppy goals in otherwise tight games. There isn’t much to separate the two so I’m going with 1-1.
Wednesday’s odds to win the match are 13/5, the draw is 9/4 and the odds for Derby to win are 23/20. If you want to bet on a first goalscorer then Matej Vydra is the favourite at 7/2, Joao is likely to start and he’s 6/1 at betway. Both teams to score in this match is 17/20 but if you should prefer, both teams to score? No, is also at odds of 17/20.
