Bournemouth vs Sheffield Wednesday
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 2 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Vitality Stadium (Bournemouth).
Three consecutive losses in the championship extended Bournemouth’s winless streak to four games in a row. Still, the host is sitting at the 6th spot on the table and another three points would help them stay within the promotion zone for the time being. They will return home after suffering a 3-1 loss on the road against Reading last time out in the campaign.
Sheffield Wednesday is near to the bottom of the table this term. Their recent unbeaten run in the schedule showed hope, but they broke it in the last league clash. They will visit on the back of another away loss in the league against Coventry with a 2-0 score on the board. The Owls have lost only one of their last five fixtures in their league schedule.

Bournemouth vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction
Two of Bournemouth’s recent three defeats came against teams sitting under them on the table. The winless streak will cause problems for the host. However, they have a 23-point lead over the traveling side, which will give a slight edge for the home team in the middle.
Besides, the Cherries enjoy the ground advantage in the middle and have lost only two of their last 12 home matches in their schedule this term. Sheffield Wednesday had an unbeaten run lately in the campaign with three wins and a draw.
The away team had won all these three games as the host in the fixture. Hence, backing the visitor with a poor form on the road seems to be a bad idea. So, the home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters along with the tip for over 1.5 goals in the encounter.
