Sheffield Wednesday vs Burton Albion: Top Free Betting Tips

The last time these sides met, it was a seven-goal thriller. Sheffield Wednesday earned the plaudits in the 5-2 mauling but it is Burton Albion who enjoy pole position in Group B standings.

Sheffield Wednesday to Win

This is an exciting fixture to call as both sides impressed their last outing. It was a 2-2 come-from-behind draw for the Owls, while Burton Albion ended their two-match losing streak with a 2-0 win. We are backing the hosts to claim the three points on offer given their home advantage and recent H2H results. The Owls did a double over Burton in the 2021/22 League One campaign and should add to their tally.

Over 2.5 Goals

Only two of the last five meetings between these sides have concluded with Over 2.5 Goals. The most recent of these saw fans entertained to seven goals and we believe another high-scoring affair is in the making this time around. This has been the norm in Sheffield's competitive fixtures, five of the last six seeing at least three goals during the 90 minutes of regulation time.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Both sides scored two goals in their last outing and will be backing themselves to do the same at the Hillsborough. Moreover, their H2H encounters have regularly seen BTTS come true. Since competitive hostilities started between them in August 2016, four of their six encounters have seen both sides represented on the scoreboard.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Burton Albion: Team News and Match Preview

Sheffield Wednesday

It was heartache in the playoffs that stopped Sheffield Wednesday from promotion. Darren Moore will be looking to go one better this season and his charges have rallied to his call. They have struggled to give a decent account of themselves in cup competitions but as long as they manage to get back into the Championship, all will be forgiven.

Burton Albion

While they have impressed in the EFL Trophy, their league form has been woeful. The win over Exeter City was the first of the League One campaign for Burton Albion. The Brewers will look to build on this result but have a tough trip to the Hillsborough awaiting them. The Owls have been dominant at home and will not give them easy passage at their own expense.
