Sheffield Wednesday vs Wolves- Betting Tips and Predictions.
Sheffield Wednesday host leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Hillsborough Stadium in this 7:45pm Friday night kick off. The Owls are struggling to get their consistency and have managed just 1 win from the last 6 games. Wolves have been in fine form this season winning 15 out of 21 games so far.

A win here will see Nuno Espirito Santo’s side open a 7 point lead before second placed Cardiff play Hull City on Saturday. Sheffield Wednesday are currently in position 15 and a win at home will be a major confidence boost for Carlos Carvalhal’s side.
