Sheffield Wednesday v Leeds United latest odds, news and free bets

This is a fixture that Sheffield Wednesday supporters have been eagerly anticipating, with their promotion to the Championship last term meaning a renewal of a Yorkshire rivalry with Leeds United

Dave Jones is in charge of the Owls and it’s been a tough start for Wednesday who currently reside in the relegation zone, with the home side having taken just one point from their last seven matches although the bookies still make them favourites to win.

Stan James offer a best price 11/8 about the Sheffield side who were slightly unlucky to lose at home to Hull City in their last match, although there is a lack of goals in the team and Gary Madine might be recalled for this derby.

Madine is without a league goal this term although he’s still a supporter favourite at Hillsborough and odds of 15/2 are available that he breaks the deadlock against a Leeds side that sit seventh in the table after making a reasonably strong start.

The visitors are a nice big price at 21/10 (Betfred bookmaker) based on the fact that they have nine more points than their opponents and Neil Warnock would love to get one over a team that were his arch-rivals for several seasons thanks to him being manager of Sheffield United.

Leeds have won twice on the road this term and come into this match with four wins and a draw from their last five matches which include a 2-1 win over an Everton side that featured most of the first team players.

Luciano Becchio has scored in his past two matches and the Argentine is 6/1 to score the first goal of the game, needing one more goal to reach double figures for the campaign.
