Sheffield Wednesday have come out on top in their last five Championship meetings with Nottingham Forest and are fancied to stretch that streak to six on Saturday.
The visitors have made a slightly better start to the new season but Mark Warburton’s team are noted as poor travellers.
That and the head-to-head record makes it easy to side with the Owls at 4/5 in our Sheff Wed vs Nottingham Forest betting predictions.
A Look At Sheffield Wednesday’s Betting Odds
After figuring in the play-offs for the past two seasons, Sheffield Wednesday have made a stuttering start this term, with six points from five games coming via a win and three draws.
However, the Owls have performed well enough in some testing fixtures, notably securing a 1-0 success at Fulham, while sharing the spoils with QPR and Sunderland was no disgrace.
With Fernando Forestieri, Jordan Rhodes, Gary Hooper and Steven Fletcher to call on up front, Wednesday should be scoring more goals, but this may be a chance for them to open up.
Carlos Carvalhal opted to let fifth striker Sam Winnall go to Derby on deadline day in a swap deal for midfielder Jacob Butterfield and that should give his squad more balance.
Heerenveen defender Joost van Aken is another solid late signing and we like 19/10 for the Owls to win to nil here in our Sheff Wed vs Nottingham Forest betting tips.
A Look At Nottingham Forest’s Betting Odds
Nottingham Forest only stayed up on goal difference last term and the summer departure of star striker Britt Assombalonga looked to set the stage for another relegation battle.
However, early wins over Millwall, Brentford and Middlesbrough lifted spirits at the City Ground, while Newcastle were edged out in extra-time in the League Cup.
The performances at Griffin Park and St James’ Park were especially encouraging, but we haven’t forgotten last season’s away form just yet, when Forest lost 16 times on the road in this division.
Forest have already gone down 2-1 away to relegation favourites Barnsley and were fortunate to escape with just a 2-0 home loss to Leeds before the international break.
Looking at the Sheff Wed vs Nottingham Forest odds, 7/1 for another 2-0 scoreline here takes the eye.
