Cheltenham vs Sheffield Wednesday prediction, betting odds & free tips 24/01/2023

Ladbrokes’ Cheltenham vs Sheffield Wednesday odds for this week should be double-checked as they are subject to change.

Top odds and Cheltenham vs Sheffield Wednesday prediction for League One

Although the Robbins aren’t exactly enjoying a high-flying performance this season, Sheffield Wednesday’s players should be composed and energetic at Whaddon Road.

Under 3.5 bookings

One of, if not the only, good thing we can say about Cheltenham’s display this season, it’s that the team certainly doesn’t lack class at the back. With only 34 goals conceded in 26 games, it’s fair to say that the Robbins know how to handle an in-form attacker.

Furthermore, Sheffield Wednesday are robust at the back as well but what’s even more convincing is that they know how to avoid a booking. Our first Cheltenham vs Sheffield Wednesday prediction is based on the fact that the Owls have been booked only 43 times – the only two teams that received fewer bookings are Burton Albion and Peterborough.

Cheltenham – Under 0.5 goals

The Robbins have issues in League One and the culprits to blame are the attackers. When you score only 23 goals in 26 games, you can’t blame anybody but yourself for your poor rank in the league. And on the 24th of January, coach Wade Elliott’s side will face one of the best defensive lines in the league.

Sheffield Wednesday are singlehandedly the best defensive team in League One and with 18 goals conceded in 27 games, they seem to be in pole position for promotion as well.

Sheffield Wednesday to win

The Owls are the bookies’ top favorite to win this game and this is a good stepping stone for our Cheltenham vs Sheffield Wednesday prediction on Tuesday. The Robbins have never won a game against Sheffield Wednesday and with two losses and a draw, they don’t seem like a serious candidate for the three points on the 24th of January.

It will be quite difficult for Wade Elliott’s boys to even get anywhere near the penalty area as Sheffield Wednesday did not get to 2nd place by accident.

We recommend you check out our brief match preview as it will clarify any additional questions you might have for Tuesday’s match.

Cheltenham

The Robbins will have to perform at a lot higher level against Sheffield Wednesday if they want to get anything out of this game. The last couple of games have been bitter disappointments as Wade Elliott’s boys have the worst momentum in the league with four consecutive losses and that certainly backs up our Cheltenham vs Sheffield Wednesday prediction even further.

Sheffield Wednesday

Darren Moore is no stranger to defeating the Robbins in League One. He already did it twice in the past and there’s nothing about Sheffield Wednesday’s display at the moment that we can criticize. With 17 victories, seven draws, and only three losses, the Owls are certainly putting pressure on Plymouth Argyle for 1st place.
