The Daily Acca: Owls to prove a hoot for home backers

Sheffield Wednesday manager - Steve Bruce
Steve Bruce is edging Sheffield Wednesday closer to the Play-offs

Paul Robinson is sinking his teeth into the Championship this afternoon and his Daily Acca combines to pay around the 13/1 mark. Here are his selections:

- Back Hull @ 21/20
- Back West Brom @ 12/5
- Back Sheffield Wednesday @ 1/1

The Acca pays approximately 13/1

There's no place like home for Hull

Bet 1: Back Hull @ 21/20 - KO 15:00 GMT

Hull's really strong run of form has come to an end, but it's worth noting that their results have still been excellent at home, and today they take on a poor-travelling, QPR.

Nigel Adkins' hosts are unbeaten in nine in front of their own fans - seven wins and two draws. They beat Millwall and Birmingham on their two latest outings at the KCOM, and I'm willing to forgive them their losses at Nottingham Forest and Norwich in the last week.

The visitors were beaten at home by Rotherham on Wednesday and prior to that they drew 0-0 with Stoke, which was also at Loftus Road.

Away from home it's five straight defeats for Steve McClaren's men, and it's hard to see them turning that around today.

Keen-travellers to end Brentford's home streak

Bet 2: West Brom @ 12/5 - KO 15:00 GMT

The Baggies have a big task to go and win at Brentford, but they returned to form with a resounding 3-0 victory over Swansea during the week, and they feel a bit overpriced to pick up their 11th away win of the season this afternoon.

The surprise sacking of Darren Moore was met with some mixed responses in the media, but caretaker, James Shan, can't let that affect him or his players, and they didn't show any ill-effects on Wednesday.

West Brom have excelled away from the Hawthorns this term, as no other side in the Championship have won more than them on the road, and while Brentford are unbeaten in seven at Griffin Park, they are still only a mid-table team.

Owls to prove too strong at Hillsborough

Bet 3: Back Sheffield Wednesday @ 1/1 - KO 15:00 GMT

Steve Bruce is yet to taste defeat as manager of Sheffield Wednesday, and the club have actually only been beaten by Chelsea in the FA Cup, since their last league defeat on January 12th.

The Owls have also started to turn some of their draws into wins, and they were victorious at Bolton on Tuesday. In their most recent appearance at Hillsborough they drew 0-0 with neighbours, United, and prior to that they had beaten Swansea and Brentford.

The visitors today at Blackburn, and while they ended a shocking run of results against Wigan during the week, that was at Ewood Park.

Tony Mowbray's side have taken just one point from a possible 12 on their travels of late, and in the wider picture, they have lost eight of their last 12.
