Port Vale vs Sheffield Wednesday – Predictions, Odds & Best Betting Tips

Depending on how results play out it is not impossible that Sheffield Wednesday end the weekend top of the League One table. For that to happen they have to win this match; will they get the job done? Find out with our Port Vale vs Sheffield Wednesday preview here along with the predictions and free tips we mention along the way.

Sheffield Wednesday to win

We kick off our tips for this game by backing Sheffield Wednesday to win – albeit it won’t be an easy match. Port Vale have only lost three of their last 10 matches but notably those defeats have come against Peterborough, Portsmouth and MK Dons – that’s three teams all tipped to be at the top of the table by the bookies in pre-season. Sheffield Wednesday were the bookies favourites at the start of the season. Despite their patchy form of late, Port Vale are a team against whom they’ve enjoyed plenty of success – four of the last five meetings between the sides have ended in wins for the Owls. At even money, there is value to be had too.

Over 2.5 goals

Next up we bring you an over 2.5 goals prediction. Port Vale have seen four of their past five matches go over the 2.5 marker with a total of 16 goals being seen; that’s 3.2 per match. Sheffield Wednesday meanwhile have seen each of their last four go north of the 2.5 cut off with a game average of 4.0. With each of the last two head to head clashes also seeing at least three goals, an ‘over’ bet feels like the only way to go here.

Both teams to score

The last of our three tips for today comes from the both teams to score market and we are backing ‘yes’. Port Vale have seen three of their last five matches end with both teams on the scoresheet whilst each of Sheffield Wednesday’s last three have ended that way. You can then throw the last meeting between the sides – in July last year – into the mix as Sheffield Wednesday ran out 2-1 winners. It all points to both teams bagging here.

Port Vale vs Sheffield Wednesday: Team News

Port Vale

Port Vale have enjoyed a solid start to the season as they sit safely in midtable, however, they have come up short against the better teams in the league. Those losses won’t define their season but a win over one of the big boys would be a great thing for their fans to witness. Can five goal Ellis Harrison fire them to a surprise win today?

Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday are right in the mix at the top of the League One table and could go top this weekend depending on results elsewhere. With Ipswich and Portsmouth (third and fourth respectively) playing each other, a win would definitely see them leapfrog at least one of those two. It’s a nice incentive to have; can Barry Bannan inspire the Owls to an away day victory?
