Sheffield Wednesday vs Coventry odds
*Odds correct as of 07:30 on January 25
The FA Cup fourth round has thrown up an all-Championship tie, which is always good for the competition, as the rest try to battle with Premier League supremacy. There are four all-Championship fixtures altogether, which means the second tier will have at least four teams in the next round. Sheffield Wednesday are in the fourth round for the second consecutive season and have only failed to reach this stage in one of their past six campaigns — when they exited in the first round as a League One side. Last year, Fleetwood Town beat the Owls at this stage after a replay, having made it from the first round and beating Newcastle along the way.
Meanwhile, Coventry have alternated third- and fourth-round exits over the past four seasons. Last year, it was a fall at the third round, so they have kept with the pattern, though they’ll be hoping to reach the fifth round for the first time since 2017/18. The Sky Blues were very comfortable in their third-round tie this year, thrashing League One side Oxford United 6-2 at home.
