The Owls are on a three-match unbeaten run against Saturday’s opponents, edging the last two head-to-heads 1-0. Last December’s victory came thanks to a second-half Glenn Loovens goal.


Sheffield Wednesday v Newcastle Stats

Wednesday have won 12 home matches from a possible 19 this season, while over 2.5 goals has happened in 53% of those.

Newcastle have won 13 of 20 away matches, while over 2.5 goals has happened in 40% of those.



Sheffield Wednesday Team News

Carlos Carvalhal is sweating on the fitness of a number of key players, including Fernando Forestieri and Ross Wallace. Kieran Lee and Sam Hutchinson are both expected to miss the match, however Vincent Sasso returns from his three-match ban.


Newcastle Team News

Rafa Benitez will be missing Vurnon Anita and DeAndre Yedlin for the match. Rolando Aarons is back in training, but he’s unlikely to feature again this season as Benitez prefers not to risk a further setback.


Reason for Sheffield Wednesday v Newcastle Bets

Sheffield Wednesday’s clash with Newcastle is by far the Championship’s standout game. While the home side are looking to secure their place in the top six, their opponents are battling with Brighton for the league title.

Wednesday have struggled for points of late and their drop in form has seen previous play-off outsiders catch them up. They’re now facing a real battle to achieve their ambition of a top-six finish.

Despite their impressive home record, they’ve won just one of their last four matches at Hillsborough, losing two of those. Injuries to key players have played their part in that, but they could welcome back two important players in Fernando Forestieri and Ross Wallace for the match with Newcastle.

Newcastle are glad to have their star striker back too, with Dwight Gayle scoring on his return to the starting 11 last week against Wigan. He’s still on the hunt for the Golden Boot, just behind Leeds’ Chris Wood.

Whilst the Magpies are almost guaranteed an automatic promotion place, they remain neck and neck with Brighton in the race for the title. The season’s slog seems to be taking its toll on the players though, as they struggle to find the winning consistency they had at the start of the season.

Nevertheless, they’ve managed to nick some important wins recently, including away victories over Brighton and Huddersfield. For that reason, back them to get their revenge on the Owls – an away win can be found at 10/7 with 888sport. Benitez’s side have drawn their last two away matches 0-0, but they should just edge past a Wednesday side who haven’t kept a clean sheet in eight matches. Back a 1-0 Newcastle win at 15/2 with Bet365.

Beat The Drop

Who can take part?

  • The promotion is available for new and existing customers with registered Paddy Power accounts, aged 18 or over.

How and when can I qualify?

  • Select your stake and the number of questions you want to answer (max ticket £50). You will then be given a pot of money to bet with (the size of that pot will depend on your stake and the number of questions which you have chosen to answer).
  • From those which are being offered, simply choose your first fixture and the market on which you wish to bet. You can then either split your pot, or go all the way in, on that question. Repeat this process until you have answered all of your questions.
  • Any money left in the pot after all the questions have been answered is yours to keep.

What can I win?

  • The maximum winnings from any single game (i.e. where a £50 ticket is selected and the maximum number of questions is chosen) is £1,000,000.
  • The size of the pot (i.e. your potential winnings) is determined by the number of questions you select and the ticket cost.

When will I get my prize?

  • Cash will be credited automatically to your account.

What else do I need to know?

  • This is a Sportsbook (i.e. a fixed odds) product.
  • The maximum ticket price per game is £50.
  • Tickets are only valid for sixty days from the time you answered your last question. If this time elapses and a game is not completed, you will be entitled to claim an amount which is calculated by halving the pot (i.e. as it stands at the lapse of the sixty-day period) for every remaining question. For example, if you have£100 in the pot with two rounds to play, you will be entitled to claim £25 (because the remaining £100 will be notionally halved and the £50 which remains after that will then be notionally halved again).  Please note that, because you have allowed the game to lapse, you will not automatically be credited with this amount but will be entitled to claim it by contacting our customer services team.
  • The first time you play Beat the Drop, you will automatically receive 30 days of free play. You will have unlimited play of a ‘10 Q – £1,000 Pot’ game. You can only enter one game at a time. Your free month will expire 30 days after your first entry from the 17th of September 2018.

This offer is only available the first time you play Beat the Drop from the 17th of September 2018. To ensure that the promotion is limited to one per customer, we only permit one customer to participate from each household address, IP address, email address, payment method (e.g. debit or credit card, Neteller etc) and/or shared computer (e.g. public library or workplace). We reserve the right not to award free entries to any customer.
