Watford are outsiders to end their five-month winless run away from home this weekend when they travel to Sheffield Wednesday.

The Hornets have not won in the last 14 matches on the road and have lost their last three trips so it would require plenty of optimism to take the plunge at 19/10 with Ladbrokes.

It is much easier to make a case for the Owls as they have strung four consecutive victories together at Hillsborough.

Sheffield Wednesday can be backed at 7/5 with Coral and this will tempt plenty due to both teams’ respective home and away form.

The Hornets were beaten 1-0 at home by the Owls back in December and Sheffield Wednesday have improved significantly since Stuart Gray took the job at the end of last year.

Only Leicester City, Burnley, Wigan Athletic and Derby County have taken more than this total of 37 points during the period of time he’s been in charge.

Leon Best has hit form for Sheffield Wednesday, during his loan spell from Blackburn Rovers, netting in each of their last three home games.

Backing the striker to score anytime at 23/10 with Paddy Power could be the best bet of the weekend.
