Betting Tip: Sheff Wed #1-0 @ 11/2 with bet365

Football can be a cruel game, with Brighton amassing eighty-nine points during the regular season and missing out on automatic promotion.

Irrespective of Chris Hughton’s positive outlook on the play-offs, it’s going to be tough for the Seagulls to rouse themselves for these combative two matches against a Sheffield Wednesday side who have been mentally ready for weeks.

Fifteen points separated the two sides in the standings, although the Owls have demonstrated that they can be a team for the big occasion this term, especially when downing Arsenal in the Capital One Cup.

Both matches between the sides this season finished goalless although Wednesday won’t want to be heading to the AMEX Stadium on Monday evening with the scoreline level.

Carlos Carvalhal will be enthused by the fact that Brighton will be missing chief central defender Lewis Dunk and midfield playmaker Dale Stephens, omissions which could be telling for the visitors.

Brighton are unbeaten in their past fourteen matches although the past two encounters finished all square and several of the previous victories came against sides with little motivation.

We’re taking Wednesday to record a narrow victory and it might even be worth considering backing the Sheffield side to qualify for the play-off final.
