Sheffield Wednesday vs Reading Prediction

It has been a tough season for Sheffield Wednesday with the Federation cutting down their points in the championship. The host is on a winless streak, but three of their last four have ended in a draw. This points out the sturdy defense they have kept in the league.

Along with that, the lack of finishers has also caused a drought for goals in their camp. The Owls have averaged 0.5 goals in the campaign while conceding 0.8 goals per match in their schedule. Hence, the tip for Sheffield Wednesday to score under 1.5 goals will probably come in handy.

Reading will try to build on that win from the last game and use their decent away form against the host in the upcoming match. Since the Royals are the favorites to win based on their current form, the tip for Reading to win with a +1 handicap will probably be the best bet for the punters.
