Swansea City v Sheffield Wednesday Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

Comments
Carlos Carvalhal’s Swans are odds-on favourites for tomorrow night’s FA Cup clash, but our tipster doesn’t see Jos Luhukay’s Owls giving much away

Swansea City and Sheffield Wednesday meet on Tuesday night in an FA Cup Fifth Round replay after a 0-0 draw at Hillsborough in the initial clash.

Saturday saw these two sides defeated as the hosts lost 4-1 at Brighton and are now 11/8 (2.38) for Premier League relegation.

The Owls, meanwhile, are 33/1 (34.0) to drop from the Championship following a 4-2 home loss to Aston Villa.

Latest odds

Swansea are 4/5 (1.8) favourites with bet365 to secure six consecutive triumphs at the Liberty Stadium in all forms for the first time since December 2007.

Their visitors are 17/4 (5.25) to gain their fourth victory of Jos Luhukay’s reign, while a draw for extra time is 13/5 (3.6).

Team News

Liam Palmer and Almen Abdi are back fit for the visitors while Fernando Forestieri is edging closer to contention. Fellow forward Lucas Joao is 15/4 (4.75) to grab his fifth goal since January.

Home boss Carvalhal confirmed that Leon Britton will return from injury to make the match-day squad, but Andre Ayew and Andy King are cup-tied.

Cup upset for Owls?

Carvalhal has made little secret of the fact that the FA Cup is not his main priority, whereas Luhukay has emphasized the importance of Tuesday’s game.

For that reason, we see the most value in siding with the visitors, who are 21/20 (2.05) to win or draw in 90 minutes in the double chance market.

Preview and predictions

Swansea have scored just two in their last three and are likely to have a largely second-string attack as they focus on Premier League survival.

Wednesday, meanwhile, have kept six clean sheets in 11 since Luhukay took over and for our best bet, we’re backing them at 10/3 (4.33) for another shut-out.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
