What Trueform says for Leeds vs Sheff Wed
Leeds are back in control of their own destiny in the race for automatic promotion from the Championship, sitting one point above Sheffield United.
Sheffield Wednesday can do their neighbours a favour on Saturday as they bid to gatecrash the play-offs under Steve Bruce.
Yorkshire derbies are usually tight affairs so we will back the draw at 31/10 in our opening Leeds vs Sheff Wed prediction.
A Look At Leeds United’s Betting Odds
Leeds took charge of the promotion race by beating Preston on Tuesday night, 24 hours before Sheffield United were held at Birmingham.
The Whites are strong at home, winning four of their last five matches.
Head coach Marcelo Bielsa said: “We have to win the five games left. When you have less points to win, during the last part of the league, the gap for mistakes is reduced.”
Leeds have remarkably won every game when taking the lead this season so, with a draw in mind, it could be the visitors who strike first.
The Owls to be winning at half-time is 9/2 in our Leeds vs Sheff Wed odds.
Last Leeds line-up: Casilla, Ayling, Cooper, Jansson, Alioski, Phillips, Klich, Roberts, Harrison, Hernandez, Bamford
A Look At Sheffield Wednesday’s Betting Odds
Bruce has revitalised Wednesday since taking over in February, giving them an outside chance of a top-six spot.
The Owls will arrive in West Yorkshire on a run of one defeat in 13 matches to sit six points adrift of the play-offs.
Bruce said: “We will never give up, while it is possible. I think we will have to win every game and we have Leeds and Norwich away but who knows… With the form we are in, you just never know.”
Wednesday are also unbeaten in six away games, drawing four, and three of the last five matches between the teams at Elland Road have ended 1-1.
With that in mind, a repeat of that scoreline looks appealing at 7/1 to complete our Leeds vs Sheff Wed betting tips.
