Blackburn vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction

The hosts recorded back to back defeats for the first time in the league after they succumbed to a 3-2 scorecard on the road against Preston. With just three wins to their name, Blackburn are currently sitting seventeenth on the ladder, just three points adrift of the relegation zone.

Sheffield Wednesday, on the other hand, are on a four-match unbeaten streak at the moment. Their most recent matchup saw them hold Leeds to a stalemate at home, prior to which they secured all three points against Stoke.

It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have been at the losing end just once in their last four trips on the road. Meanwhile, Blackburn have not had a taste of success on home soil for well over a month now.

Taking into account that the hosts have also secured the bragging rights on just one occasion in their previous five h2h meetings here, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Sheffield this Saturday.

Be that as it may, the home side have been adamant in their last two clashes here and have managed to salvage a point in each. With the visitors also sharing the spoils in their previous outing, the safest punt would have to be a double chance.

Furthermore, the hosts have looked sharp right from the off, and have found the back of the net before the break, in three of their last four games here. The guests have also been keen on searching for early goals in their trips on the road, and have scored six of their last seven away goals in the opening forty-five minutes.

Hence, wait no later than the first half for the deadlock to be broken in this one.
