Preston vs Sheffield Wednesday prediction

The stage is set for a thrilling encounter between Preston North End and Sheffield Wednesday at Deepdale! Here’s how I see the game potentially developing:

Preston are pushing for victory: With playoff spots within reach, Preston are likely to take a proactive approach, pressing high and utilizing their attacking trio of Evans, Johnson and Maguire.

Sheffield Wednesday are desperate for points: languishing near the relegation zone, Sheffield Wednesday need a big result. Expect them to sit deep initially, looking to frustrate Preston and hit them on the counter with quick bursts from Palmer and Hunt.

Key moments:

  • Preston’s initial pressure: The first 15 minutes will be crucial. Can Preston break through Wednesday’s defense and score an early goal?
  • Wednesday’s counter-attacking threat: If Preston commit too much, they will have opportunities to exploit the space behind the Lilywhites’ defense on Wednesday.
  • Set pieces: Both teams have aerial threats, so set pieces could be decisive.


It’s a tough call, but Preston’s home advantage, recent form and attacking firepower probably give them the advantage. I predict a 2-1 Preston win, with both teams trading blows but the Lilywhites securing the vital three points.

However, remember: football is unpredictable! Wednesday’s fighting spirit and the potential danger of a counterattack could upset the apple cart. Stay tuned for an exciting encounter!

Preston vs Sheffield Wednesday odds & betting tips

The clash between Preston North End and Sheffield Wednesday is heating up, with kick-off just on the horizon! Here’s a snapshot of the current odds and some possible betting tips:

Match winner:

  • Preston: Favorites to win, sports odds between 1.75 and 1.85. Their strong home form against Sheffield Wednesday and recent improvement in results make them the bookmakers’ choice.
  • Tie: A tie has decent odds of 3.40 – 3.60. Both teams have struggled for consistency and a low-scoring draw would not be a surprise.
  • Sheffield Wednesday: The underdogs with odds hovering between 4.30 and 4.50. Their woeful record away from home weighs heavily, but they should not be written off completely, especially given Preston’s occasional failures.

Other options:

  • Both Teams Score (BTTS): Leaning towards “Yes” at odds of around 1.70 – 1.80. Although both teams have defensive problems, Preston’s offensive intent at home and Sheffield Wednesday’s desperation to score goals suggest scoring opportunities for both teams.
  • Over/Under 2.5 goals: a very close decision. “Over 2.5” has a quota of 1.75 – 1.85, while “Less than 2.5” is slightly above 1.90 – 2.00. Recent head-to-heads at Deepdale have been low-scoring, but Preston’s recent offensive surge makes it a matter of luck.
  • Remember: these are just snapshots and odds can fluctuate quickly. Always check the latest odds before placing any bets.
