Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Attacking football. This Leeds side is playing some wonderful stuff under new manager Marcelo Bielsa. Only West Brom have scored more than their 19 goals, and the visitors are 11/4 with BetBright to win with over 2.5 goals in the game as part of the best football betting tips for this match.

2 We fancy:

Leeds to get back to winning ways. Bielsa is very intense in his methods, and there may be concerns that’s already showing after some disappointing recent results. However, there’s plenty of optimism at Elland Road after the start they’ve made, and Leeds are 8/1 with bet365 to win this game 2-1 in your football score predictions.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Wednesday recorded an excellent 3-0 victory over Leeds at Hillsborough last season. It would be an even more impressive result this time round after their opponents’ start to the new campaign, but you can back Jos Luhukay’s side at 40/1 with 888sport to win by the same scoreline once again.

One to Watch: Kemar Roofe

Kemar Roofe has four goals in six Championship appearances so far this term, after only managing 11 in the whole of last season. He hasn’t scored in September yet though, and the English forward will be desperate not to go the whole month without hitting the back of the net. 

The attacking football that Leeds play will open Wednesday up if their hosts try to fight fire with fire, which should present Roofe with chances during this game. He is 43/10 with 888sport to open the scoring in this Friday night fixture.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Leeds United Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Sheffield Wednesday welcome Leeds United to Hillsborough on Friday night

Two sleeping Yorkshire giants meet in this Championship preview, but the Friday night lights reveal one of them to be firmly waking up. Despite a hiccup at the weekend, Leeds United sit atop the Championship table as they make the short journey to Hillsborough to face Sheffield Wednesday. 

Wednesday are 9/4 in your football predictions, after they recorded their best result of the new season last time out. The Owls won away at promotion favourites Aston Villa, with veteran striker Steven Fletcher hitting the winner at Villa Park. It was Wednesday’s fourth victory of the season, but they’re suffering from the same inconsistencies as last term after also losing three times already. 

Leeds are 7/5 for the win, so they start as the favourites in your football betting tips for the weekend. Bielsa’s first Championship defeat came at home against struggling Birmingham City, who managed their first win of the campaign at Elland Road. Despite the attractive football and great start, it means that Leeds have now won just once in their last five games in all competitions. 

The draw is 28/11, but each of the last five fixtures between the sides have produced a winner. Wednesday won both of the meetings last season, including a 2-1 success at Elland Road. The Owls were comfortable 3-0 winners at Hillsborough almost exactly a year ago, but this is a different Leeds side and the hosts may be happy with a point. 

Lucas Joao has three goals from four starts and two substitute appearances in the Championship this season, and the Owls forward is 13/2 for the first goal here. For Leeds, Pablo Hernandez and Mateusz Klich have both contributed three goals from midfield, and they could be worth a look as a football prediction for the first goal, priced at 17/2 and 11/1 respectively. 

Predicted Score: Sheffield Wednesday 1 - 2 Leeds United
