Sheffield Wednesday vs Blackburn Match Preview

Sheffield Wednesday continued their good form in midweek with a 2-0 victory at Bolton that stretched their unbeaten run to ten. They are still within distance of the side in sixth and a late play-off run is not beyond the Yorkshire outfit.

At Hillsborough, the Owls are unbeaten in their last nine with victories in five of these and four ending in a draw. Five of the last seven visitors to this ground have failed to find the back of the net.

Blackburn picked up a vital three points in midweek with a comfortable 3-0 home success over Wigan with Danny Graham grabbing a brace. It put to an end a seven-game winless run and puts the gap between them and the relegation zone to 11 points.

Away from Ewood Park, Rovers are without a victory in four and their only victory in the last 12 came at Millwall. Their last four on the road have produced a remarkable 19 goals with the Lancashire outfit being responsible for seven of those.

Sheffield Wednesday are the favourites and the odds look about right on a side with five home wins from their last nine. The visitors won in midweek but have won just one of their last 12 on the road so don’t look backable here.

Rovers have shipped 14 times from their last five on the road so I like that play here and backing the Owls to go over 1.5 goals looks the main bet while a smaller bet on them going over 2.5 also makes sense.
