Sheffield Wednesday are one of the teams that should fear for their Championship status. They are in the relegation zone with six points fewer than safety. There is still much time until the end of the season, but Danny Rohl's team has to start playing much better. Sheffield Wednesday are without a win in the last three matches. In the previous game, they played 1-1 at home in the FA Cup against Coventry. Guests were close to winning, but Sheffield Wednesday didn't give up. The home side scored late in the second half and forced a replay. 

Watford's 2023/24 season wasn't great as they are only tenth on the table, but all could change as Valerian Ismael's team is only three points behind the playoff zone. Watford could reach their goals with one or two good run of results until the end of the season. Currently, they are on the run of six matches without a loss (two wins and four draws). In the previous game, Watford played 1-1 at home in the FA Cup against Southampton. Ismael's team was close to progressing, but Southampton's Stuart Armstrong scored an equalizer in the 89th minute, so the teams will play another game to determine who will progress in the next round. 

Sheffield Wednesday vs Watford pick: Both teams to score - yes

Sheffield Wednesday scored at least one goal in five of the previous six matches. On the other hand, Watford scored at least one goal in each one of the last 13 games. Both teams to score - yes should be the safest betting option for this tie.

Sheffield Wednesday team news

Sheffield Wednesday is trying to strengthen their squad this January. They brought on loan goalkeeper James Beadle (who came from Brighton) and striker Ike Ugbo (from Troyes). Beadle didn't play in the FA Cup tie a few days ago because he played for Oxford United in the cup previously in the season. Beadle could return in the starting lineup against Watford. On the other hand, Ugbo played for Cardiff in the first part of the season when he scored four Championship goals. 

Callum Paterson, John Buckley, and Dominic Iorfa are injured and will not play on Wednesday versus Watford.

Watford team news

A few days ago, Watford loaned Emmanuel Dennis from Nottingham Forest. He played for Watford in 2021/22 (ten goals and six assists that year), but after that, he went to Nottingham Forest for almost 15 million euros. Dennis spent the first part of the 2023/24 season in Basaksehir, where he didn't play too much. After returning to Watford, Dennis played in the FA Cup tie against Southampton when he came as a substitute in the 76th minute. 

Watford will be without Ken Sema, Edo Kayembe, and Jeremy Ngakia in the game versus Sheffield Wednesday.
