These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
Both Teams to Score
Sheffield Wednesday have been posting plenty of good results to aid their playoff push, though clean sheets have been few are far between for the Owls, particularly on the road. Indeed, Wednesday have shut out their hosts just once in their last six attempts in League One, while both teams to score has landed in 75% of their last four away tests since late January. With that record considered, the likelihood of BTTS hitting the mark again this weekend seems high.
Over 2.5 Goals
While their defensive issues have been frustrating, the firepower in Sheffield Wednesday’s ranks has allowed them to cancel out many of their problems at the opposite end. As a result, many of their matches have been high-scoring affairs, with four of their last six League One fixtures seeing three or more goals. More of the same is expected when the Owls visit Gillingham on Saturday, so pursue over 2.5 goals again.
Barry Bannan to Score Anytime
Scottish veteran Barry Bannan is enjoying a fine campaign with Sheffield Wednesday in 2021/22 and the 32-year-old is just two goals shy of ten for the season in League One. With three strikes in his last four appearances alone, the ex-Aston Villa starlet is in excellent form and Bannan is a prime candidate among the anytime goalscorer options this weekend.
