- The last five matches in a row saw the teams at home winning.
- Squads that hosted the fixtures, scored twice or more in the prior five meetings.

Brentford vs Sheffield Wednesday Match Preview
Frank’s men secured a 2-2 draw the last match-day, against Cardiff. It was their fifth winless game on the trot, and this recent loss of form has put them under danger of losing the fifth spot in their possession.
Keep note that a fifth-place finish would afford the side an entry into the playoffs.
Elsewhere, Garry Monk’s men lost 1-3 at home, against Derby. That the Owls conceded three goals in the first thirty minutes of the match-up, says a lot about the current state of their defense.
Brentford vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction
Frank’s men are placed in the top-most tier, and will be desperate to hang on to it. They have the confidence of playing in front of their home crowd.
At this ground, the team has been in ominous form this whole season. In fact, in the period, they have lost just thrice here in league fixtures. One of these defeats had come against a playoff contender, while one another had come against a promoted side.
On the other hand, Monk’s men are placed much lower in the table, and they have been a total disaster on the road. Moreover, they had also lost the last two h2h clashes at this stadium, and even failed to score in those fixtures. Furthermore, they have won just twice at this stadium in the last 15 years against this rival.
Takign these findings into consideration, it’s predicted that Brentford should win this weekend encounter. However, the Bees have failed to keep a clean sheet in the past nine overall fixtures, and in their former six home appearances.
Their opposite number scored goals in 19 of their previous 24 overall matches, and in 13 of their last 14 road trips. Consequentially, the chances for the BTTS bet to bring good returns are very high this Saturday.
