Sheffield Wednesday vs Portsmouth – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Sheffield Wednesday’s playoff destiny is in their own hands as their League One campaign concludes with a fixture against Portsmouth. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Sheffield Wednesday to Win

Sheffield Wednesday will kick off Saturday’s climactic fixture in fourth spot, though the Owls playoff hopes could still be dashed if results go against them. However, the Owls are favoured to beat Portsmouth at Hillsborough despite Pompey’s recent run of four wins in five. It’s worth noting that all four of those victories were secured at Fratton Park, while Portsmouth are winless in five on the road. Sheffield Wednesday have the class to capitalise on their visitor’s travel sickness, so back the Owls to prevail.

Both Teams to Score

Portsmouth came from two goals down to beat league leaders Wigan last time out and they should be armed with enough confidence to impact the scoresheet against Sheffield Wednesday as a result. The Owls have failed to notch just once in 22 League One fixtures at Hillsborough this season however and bettors are advised to back both teams to score in South Yorkshire with those impressive records in mind.

Lee Gregory to Score Anytime

Lee Gregory was Sheffield Wednesday’s match-winning hero in midweek when he rattled home a superb hattrick at Fleetwood (3-2). The 33-year-old brought his tally for the campaign up to 15 with this stunning trio of strikes, in fact, Gregory has now scored seven times in his last seven appearances. The veteran is in red-hot form at present and he is worth backing the anytime goalscorer stakes again on Saturday.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Portsmouth Match Preview and Team News

Sheffield Wednesday

Dominic Iorfa, Sylla Sow and Tyreece John-Jules are all out for Sheffield Wednesday while doubts remain over the availability of Dennis Adeniran and Ciaran Brennan. The Owls are one of four teams vying for three playoff places on the final day of the campaign, though Wednesday will start the climax with more points than their rivals.

Portsmouth

Portsmouth could be without Denver Hume, Kieron Freeman, Jayden Reid and Reeco Hackett this weekend. Defender Connor Ogilvie was fit enough to feature in Tuesday’s 3-2 win over Wigan and he should retain his place on Saturday. Pompey will be disappointed at not being involved in the final playoff shake-up, though they have a solid platform to build on next year.
