Sheff Wed vs Derby Odds, Free Betting Tips, & Predictions

We believe any Sheff Wed vs Derby prediction made below is a likely outcome, with both teams in need of the points badly.

McGoldrick to Score Anytime

Our first Sheff Wed vs Derby prediction is for Derby’s top goalscorer McGoldrick (22 goals) to find the back of the net again. McGoldrick has 6 goals in the last 6 rounds. He scored in 5 of those 6 games and despite his 35 years, he remains Derby’s most reliable forward asset.

Sheff Wed or Draw

With our next free betting tip, we back the Owls to avoid a defeat. Wednesday might have missed out on an automatic promotion but their home form remains the best in the league and the Owls last tasted defeat at home in September, since then they are (W17 D5) in Sheffield. Wednesday also lost only 1 of the last 7 H2Hs (W1 D5).

Over 2.5 Goals

Our final Sheff Wed vs Derby prediction is for the game to have at least 3 total goals. With Derby likely to take risks and be aggressive, especially if the news from the other match are not good for them, an open game with lots of chances can be expected. Also, all of Wednesday’s last 7 games had more than 2.5 goals in them. So did 7 of Derby’s last 10.

Sheff Wed vs Derby Lineups, Analysis, and Latest Team News

Sheff Wed

Wednesday are set to finish 3rd in the final standings and they are gearing up for a serious playoff push after only just missing out on an automatic promotion. Interestingly if the teams remain where they are now they will also meet in the first round of the playoffs so Wednesday wouldn’t want to give Derby a psychological advantage.

Continue to be missing 5 players due to long-term  injuries. Among them are the important centre-back Famewo and the key playmaker Byers. Veteran Gregory is doubtful but this is not such a major issue.

Derby

Derby failed to secure their spot in the playoffs last weekend when only able to draw 1-1 at home vs Portsmouth. Equalised late in this match and showed nerves for most of its duration. Remain in control of their own destiny but only win now guarantees them a top 6 finish. Any other result would mean listening nervously to what is happening elsewhere.

There are serious injury issues but reports emerged that 2 unnamed regulars are struggling with niggles and they threaten to miss. The gaffer refused to give their names in his press conference.
