Sheffield Wednesday beat Luton Town in the Championship is Bet of the Day for 20/08/19

After making a great start to life without Steve Bruce, a Sheffield Wednesday beat Luton Town bet makes sense on Tuesday.

The Owls welcome the promoted Hatters to Hillsborough after two wins from three in the new Championship football season.

League One title winners Luton are finding the step up tough so far under new boss Graeme Jones.

After so many years as assistant to Roberto Martinez and working at West Bromwich Albion last season, he’s yet to win a league game as a manager.

Wednesday are without a permanent boss but caretaker Lee Bullen is proving a safe pair of hands. He’s in his third spell in temporary charge at Hillsborough having returned to his former club in 2011.

Wins over Reading and another promoted team in Barnsley got the Owls off to a flyer in the Championship.

A line can be put through the away defeat at Millwall. That hostile atmosphere of the Den will be the graveyard for many a side visiting London this season.

Sheffield Wednesday beat Luton and both teams score also possible

Jones does have an EFL Cup win under his belt at Luton. In the league, however, the Hatters have taken just one point from the first nine available.

A thrilling 3-3 draw on the opening day against Middlesbrough showed Luton up as a very open side. Their expansive brand of football means they’re vulnerable defensively.

Defeats by Cardiff City – a Premier League club last season – and West Brom are no disgrace. It has checked the Hatters’ momentum from their promotion campaign, however.

Very solid odds of 10/11 with Betfred say Sheffield Wednesday beat Luton here. There’s an argument that the Owls should be shorter.

Punters can enhance that price considerably by backing a Wednesday win and both teams to score at 3/1 with the same bookmaker.

The Hatters are sure to give this their best shot and look like scoring. Either bet is decent value.

Bet of the Day: 10/11 with Betfred, Sheffield Wednesday beat Luton Town in the EFL Championship.
