Preston North End vs Sheffield Wednesday top free betting tips

Ninth-placed Preston North End welcomes twenty-third-placed Sheffield Wednesday to Deepdale for a clash just before 2023 ends. Preston is an interesting team with their form all over the place, they managed to lose 5-1 to Watford just before Christmas despite being 1-0 up and then managed to beat Leeds United by two goals to one in their previous fixture. Sheffield Wednesday is proving a much more difficult side to face under Danny Rohl but the points they need are still evading them as things stand. Three wins and one draw in their previous ten matches.
