Sheffield Wednesday host Leicester City in the Championship on Wednesday evening (19:45) and the Owls are searching for their second win under Danny Rohl.

They will face a tough test when they welcome league leaders Leicester to Hillsborough, who were able to put two consecutive defeats behind them with a victory over Watford over the weekend.

We've picked out a couple of the best markets available for this encounter that pits top against bottom.

Sheff Weds vs Leicester Betting Tips

  • Jamie Vardy to score anytime - 11/8
  • Leicester to win to nil - 13/8

Match Odds

Sheffield Wednesday are 9/2 to pull off a huge upset here. A draw is valued at 16/5, while Leicester are the overwhelming favourites at 4/7.

Both teams to score here is priced at 4/5. Over 2.5 goals is 8/11.

Team News

The hosts are going to miss attacker Josh Windass on Wednesday due to suspension, after the player accumulated too many yellow cards. Juan Delgado will be unavailable due to injury.

Leicester have no fresh injury concerns heading into this one.

Jamie Vardy to score anytime @ 11/8

As Leicester head to Yorkshire in search of a second consecutive victory, this game will see striker Jamie Vardy turn out against his boyhood club. You know how these scripts tend to go. It seems inevitable that he will find the back of the net in this game, not just because it is Vardy and he is an excellent goalscorer, but because of who he is playing against.

The veteran heads into Wednesday in great form having scored both of the Fox's goals in their 2-0 win over Watford at the weekend. Those contributions could see him handed a start at Hillsborough which would give him plenty of minutes on the pitch to make things happen.

Leicester to win to nil @ 13/8

No one can doubt that Sheffield Wednesday have been improving their performances since Rohl came in, even if results haven't been great. They are starting to cause problems for teams, like they did in the first half in their eventual defeat to Birmingham City on Saturday.

However, they are coming out against the strongest team in the division this time around, with squad depth that they can only dream of. This is going to be a really tough ask for them to come away with something here and it is difficult to see that happening.

This match should translate as it is on paper in first against bottom. The Foxes should be able to win this one with relative ease.
