Leeds United Sheffield Wednesday Tips, Predictions and Odds

Leeds United host Sheffield Wednesday in matchday 38 of the Championship on Saturday 17th March, 3:00pm at Elland Road. The hosts currently sit in 13th place in the table having drawn against Reading 2-2 last time out, while the visitors are in 18th after their 1-1 draw against Bolton Wanderers.

Neither team comes into this Yorkshire derby in great form, with both sides winning only once on the way to collecting eight points from a possible 39 recently, though four wins from their previous ten home matches at this level is enough to ensure that Leeds begin as underwhelming 42% favourites for victory in the eyes of our KickOff predictive algorithm.

Last Season's Score
Chris Wood’s first-half effort proved to be the difference between the sides when they met at Elland Road last season, with the chances of that 1-0 scoreline being repeated this time around rated at a healthy 12%.

Team News For Leeds United
Paul Heckingbottom made six changes for the draw at Reading last weekend, so it will be interesting to see whether or not the recently-installed Leeds boss is quite so quick to wield the axe ahead of this encounter.

Team News For Sheffield Wednesday
The Sheffield Wednesday players must not know whether they are coming or going under Jos Luhukay, with the former Hertha Berlin boss consistently making multiple alterations to his starting XI, though goalkeeper Joe Wildsmith has always been on the team sheet in the league.

First Goal Scorer Betting Predictions
Ten-goal Pierre-Michel Lasogga (16% chance) may have started on the bench at the Madejski Stadium, but the powerful centre-forward still starts as the favourite to open the scoring here, ahead of the likes of Caleb Ekuban (13% chance) and Samuel Saiz (12% chance).

This clash will take place at Elland Road at 3:00pm on Saturday 17th March. Highlights will be shown on Football on 5: The Championship later that evening at 9:00pm.
