SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY VS READING BETTING TIPS
The form of Fulham has put real pressure on these two sides as they look to hang onto a top six position, which both have maintained for most of the campaign. A win for either here would be a massive boost and it’s Wednesday that look most likely to secure it.
Reading are unbeaten in 4 games against Wednesday. 3 of those games were at the Madejski though. They’ve lost on 2 of their last 3 visits to Hillsborough.
Reading’s away record against top ten Championship sides this season reads – Played 7 Lost 7. Wednesday have scored 1.67 goals per game at home this term and have won 33% of their home games to nil.
Vincent Sasso is suspended following his red card at Villa Park. However Wednesday’s central defensive issues are eased by the return to fitness of Tom Lees and Glenn Loovens. Striker Fernando Forestieri is still a doubt though while midfielders Sam Hutchinson, Kieran Lee, Almen Abdi and Callum McManaman are also on the sidelines.
Centre-backs Paul McShane and Liam Moore look like they will be fit having picked up injuries. Jordon Mutch is suffering from a hip problem and will have a late fitness test. Defenders Tiago Ilori and Danzell Gravenberch, midfielders Stephen Quinn and Callum Harriott and striker Deniss Rakels are all out.
Therefore, backing Sheffield Wednesday to Win at 3/4 looks like the best approach to take.
METZ VS BASTIA BETTING TIPS
Bastia won the reverse fixture 2-0 back in December.
Bastia have won only 14% of their away games this season.
Metz players Valid Selimovic, Alexis Larriere and Gauthier Hein are all currently out injured, while Fallou Diagne should be back after serving a suspension.
Bastia top scorer Enzo Crivelli and Abdoulaye Diallo are both on the treatment table.
We see Metz taking the game and moving closer to safety, while worsening Bastia’s woes. Our advice is to back a Both Teams To Score No bet, valued at 4/5
BORUSSIA DORTMUND VS INGOLSTADT BETTING TIPS
Ingolstadt drew 3-3 at home to Dortmund when the two sides met earlier this season. Borussia Dortmund have won the other two prior meetings against Ingolstadt.
Dortmund have won 73% of their home matches this season (W8 D3), while Ingolstadt have lost 67% of their matches on the road (W3 D1 L8). Ingolstadt have failed to score in 38% of matches and Dortmund have kept a clean sheet in 45% at home.
Dortmund are doubtful over Sven Bender (center-back), Sebastian Rode (center mid), Julian Weigl (defensive mid) and Marco Reus (winger). Mario Gotze is out for the foreseeable future due to illness. Ousmane Dembele sits this out to suspension.
Ingolstadt’s only concern is that of center forward Moritz Hartmann.
As such, Borussia Dortmund to win 3-0 at 13/2 is a decent shout here.
BRISTOL CITY VS HUDDERSFIELD BETTING TIPS
Huddersfield won 2-1 when these sides met earlier this season in Yorkshire. The last 5 meetings have produced 3 Huddersfield wins and 2 for Bristol City.
91% of Huddersfield’s league wins this season have been by a 1 goal margin. 84% of Bristol City’s league defeats have been by a 1 goal margin.
Bristol City Striker Milan Djuric is set to miss out with a hernia problem. Full-back Mark Little is suffering from a torn hamstring. Tammy Abraham will be checked over but should start after the top scorer returned from injury last weekend.
Huddersfield Midfielders Harry Bunn and Kasey Palmer are still out injured. Winger Sean Scannell is nearing a return but this game is likely to come too soon. Left-back Tareiq Holmes-Dennis is also back in training.
Given that, Huddersfield certainly look the more likely victors here.
