Sheff Wed v Nottingham Forest Odds: Draw a tempting bet between two form teams

The Championship's televised Saturday evening game comes at Hillsborough where Sheffield Wednesday lock horns with Nottingham Forest. Wednesday's decent run of form since mid-December has moved them from second from bottom up to 19th and five points clear of the drop zone. Meanwhile back-to-back wins have got an inspired Forest under Billy Davies back in contention for a play-off spot, with the East Midlands club just four points adrift of sixth place going into this weekend’s games.

It is therefore all to place for in Sheffield, which could make for an engaging encounter. Wednesday just edge it in the match betting market, having been handed odds of 6/4 with Paddy Power, compared to Forest's 7/4. We can expect a close game between two in-form teams, making a draw a great possibility at 9/4. Furthermore a score draw is a very tempting bet at 16/5, with a 2-2 priced at 12/1.

It was all doom and gloom at Wednesday back in November/early December following seven straight defeats. Dave Jones was under immense pressure and was seemingly days away from the sack. However, to his credit he has brilliantly turned things around with the Owls losing just one of their last 12 league games, and they head into Saturday's match unbeaten in seven.

Meanwhile Forest have endured a chaotic couple of months, with former boss Billy Davies returning to the City Ground at the start of February following the departure of Alex McLeish. However, "King Billy's" return has sparked a three-match unbeaten run, courtesy of two wins and a draw.

Forest, who have twice finished in the play-offs under Davies, are now just four points off sixth-placed Middlesbrough, who are in action at home to league leaders Cardiff on the Saturday. Their u-turn in form makes them a decent bet to sneak a victory, with a 2-1 win available at 9/1.

However, it will be a very difficult task away to a side that have lost just once at Hillsborough since early December. The hosts defeated promotion pushing Crystal Palace 1-0 last weekend and they are available at 7/1 to record the same scoreline on Saturday.

Leroy Lita has scored three goals in five games since his loan move to Wednesday from Swansea, making him a great first goalscorer bet at 11/2, while he is priced at 7/4 to find the back of the net anytime. Teammates Michail Antonio and Connor Wikham have been handed the exact same odds in both markets, with Danny Pugh an outside bet at 7/1 to get his name on the scoresheet.

Forest midfielder Radosław Majewski has been in inspired form since Davies took over, having scored four goals in his last two games, including a hat-trick against Huddersfield. The Polish international could be a fruitful bet at 4/1 to score anytime, while striker Simon Cox is available at 15/8 with Paddy Power Bookmakers.
