Market: Sheffield Wednesday draw no bet
Odds: 10/11 @ Bet 365
Two sides enduring very different battles at opposite ends of the Championship standings heading into Christmas, Sheffield Wednesday will make the trip to the BET365 Stadium on Boxing Day afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while a 3-0 win over Luton earlier in the month may have had many in Stoke’s camp believe they could be turning a corner under new boss Micheal O’Neil, the Potters are still showing some drastic signs of a struggle. Throwing away a one-goal lead and hit with a 2-1 defeat away at fellow relegation scrappers Middlesbrough last week, they sit two points adrift of safety and there is no doubt that fans around Staffordshire will also be concerned by their last meeting against the Owls. When they made the trip to Hillsborough back in October, Stoke were hit with a 1-0 defeat and Thursday could prove to be yet another long afternoon’s work.
As for the visitors, leaving it late to snatch a crucial 1-0 win off of fellow play-off contenders Bristol City over the weekend, Sheffield Wednesday have continued on what is a stellar purple patch. Climbing as high as third and continuing to shine under Gary Monk, the Owls are in the midst of a six-match unbeaten run that stems back to the 23rd of October. Also winning four of their last five Championship outings, the former Middlesbrough boss will undoubtedly be growing more impressed with his side’s performances on the road. Picking up a thumping 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest in their last matchup away from Hillsborough, Monk’s men are unbeaten in their last three matches outside of Sheffield.
