Sheffield Wednesday – Huddersfield is the derby of Round 26, with both teams finding themselves on playoff places and dreaming of a Premier League appearance next season. If the hosts fail to win any points from this game, they could exchange spots with Derby County, while Huddersfield will undoubtedly remain on a playoff spot regardless of the result of this match. That being said, what can we expect to see here?

Both Teams To Score: Yes 2.00 or 1/1, No 1.72 or 8/11
Although both teams are in a good run of form, Sheffield’s recent games have a sour-sweet taste. While they have managed to avoid defeat, draws against Wolves (H) and Preston (A) are hardly results to brag with. They’ve managed to lose against Ipswich at home in mid-December as well, but have managed to tie three consecutive home wins during winter. They are one of the better teams in the division when it comes to playing in front of their fans, and have an excellent defense as well: just under one conceded goal per game.
Sadly for them, their opponents are also in fine form coming into this match. Huddersfield is also undefeated in their last five games and has won their last three away games. They’ve faced Burton, Norwich, and Wigan in those games – not the best opponents in the division, granted, but the form Huddersfield show is still scary. They apparently will want to win at least one point from this game against Sheffield to consolidate their playoff spot – and possibly even leapfrog Reading.
Sheffield Wednesday vs Huddersfield Betting Tips
From a betting perspective, we expect to see a rather close game. The home side doesn’t have the best attack available, while the away team is unlikely to open themselves and play attacking football.
That being said, an “under 2,5” goal bet is our favorite of the day, and we’d even recommend going for an X bet for the final result. If you have the possibility of betting “halftime or fulltime X”(some bookies offer this), that would be even better. Good luck!
