Our prediction for this Championship match:
Saturday’s football game at Hillsborough pits together Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea City, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the remainder of the season. The Owls are desperate to secure the Championship survival, while the Swans are determined to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League. Experienced attacker Jordan Rhodes, who found the net in the 2-0 win over Wycombe, should be deployed up front, alongside Callum Paterson.
Swansea City are brimming with confidence following a 2-0 win over league leaders Norwich City, and given their brilliant form in 2021, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the visiting team. Andre Ayew, who scored his ninth goal of the season at the weekend, will be the man to watch in the away team. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a 1-1 draw, but away win should be considered this time out.
