Odds: Sheff Wed 5/4, Draw 12/5, Leeds 2/1

Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds go into Sunday’s Yorkshire derby on the back of disappointing results and that could make a draw worth backing at Hillsborough.
We feel these traditionally strong Championship teams will look to batten down the hatches and grind out a result, with a share of the spoils not regarded as a bad outcome for either side.
Four of their last 10 encounters have ended in stalemate and 12/5 that happens again is a value pick for our Sheff Wed vs Leeds betting predictions.
A Look At Sheffield Wednesday’s Betting Odds
Sheffield Wednesday made a solid start to the season, recovering from an opening loss at Preston to register a seven-game unbeaten run.
Last Sunday’s Steel City derby was a painful experience for the Owls, though, and that 4-2 home defeat was followed by a 1-0 loss at managerless Birmingham in midweek.
However, Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal felt aggrieved at Gary Hooper having a goal disallowed for offside and remains positive.
His side had 63 per cent of the possession at St Andrew’s, 17 shots to nine and six more corners, prompting the comment: “We have the quality to get out of this situation and Sunday against Leeds is a good game to play.”
The Owls have already had four 1-1 draws this season, so 11/2 for that scoreline is another percentage pick for our Sheff Wed vs Leeds betting tips.
A Look At Leeds United’s Betting Odds
Leeds raised hopes that a return to the Premier League could finally be on the cards by winning six of their first nine Championship fixtures to sit on top of the table.
However, Tuesday’s 3-1 defeat at Cardiff means they have now lost their last two away games in this division, having previously gone down 1-0 at Millwall.
United were already 2-0 behind when Liam Cooper was sent off shortly before half-time, but they did show some spirit with 10 men after the interval.
Manager Thomas Christiansen said: “The performance of the team in the second half was very good, a good response, good character.”
Looking at the Sheff Wed vs Leeds odds, we like 14/1 for the hosts to lead at half-time and then the visitors to rally for a draw.
