Sheffield Wednesday - Huddersfield Betting Preview: Deadly duo can help fire Owls to vital victory

Dave Jones' men ran out as emphatic winners in their last home match and our tipster is backing the Owls to claim all three points in Saturday's lunchtime clash at Hillsborough
Sheffield Wednesday will look to haul themselves out of the Championship relegation zone when they play host to Huddersfield at Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon.

Wednesday crashed to a 3-0 defeat against Derby County last time out but that was their first defeat in six matches and the hosts will fancy their chances of claiming a vital victory against the out-of-sorts Terriers this weekend.

The Owls claimed their first league win of the season in their last home outing when they thumped Reading and Dave Jones’ men are chalked up as 11/10 (2.10) favourites with Paddy Power to claim all three points from the lunchtime clash.

Huddersfield have won just one of their last nine matches in all competitions and can be backed at a chunky 23/10 (3.30) with Paddy Power to get their season back on track by beating the Owls this weekend. The draw is available at 12/5 (3.40) with the same firm.

It is worth noting that both teams have scored in each of Huddersfield’s last seven matches while there have been goals at both ends in no fewer than five of Wednesday’s last six games.

Therefore, the 4/6 (1.67) quote from Paddy Power for both teams to find the net on Saturday looks to represent decent value here, although punters averse to backing such short prices could be forgiven for looking elsewhere in this game.

Matt Fryatt, who scored twice in Wednesday’s emphatic 5-2 victory over Reading earlier this month, looks to represent excellent value at a chunky 5/1 (6.0) with Paddy Power to score first while Connor Wickham, currently on loan at Hillsborough from Sunderland, is also available at 5/1 (6.0) with Paddy Power to break the deadlock this weekend.

With Fryatt and Wickham likely to link up again this weekend, Wednesday look good value at 11/10 (2.10) with Paddy Power to claim victory here while the 5/1 (6.0) quote on offer from the same firm for Fryatt to score first should be snapped up by value-hunting punters here.
