Leagues Tipped:

SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Derby's do-or-die relegation clash with Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Derby vs Sheffield Wednesday (Saturday, 12:30)

Derby face relegation rivals Sheffield Wednesday in a final-day survival shoot-out at Pride Park on Saturday.

Wayne Rooney's side have been below-par all season but the Rams' fate is in their own hands ahead of this make-or-break showdown.

Sheffield Wednesday, on the other hand, need to win at Pride Park and hope that Rotherham fail to win at Cardiff if they are to avoid dropping into the third-tier of English football.

However, the Owls have slumped to defeat in eight of their last nine English Championship road trips, while Derby are in the midst of a six-game losing streak.

As such, it's difficult to have much faith in either team here so I'm going to steer clear of the outright betting and instead head to William Hill's Build Your Odds feature.

If we combine each team to see over one card we will be presented with an eye-catching even-money (1/1) play and that makes plenty of appeal.

The stakes couldn't be higher ahead of this do-or-die dust-up and given the immense pressure that will be on both sides on Saturday I suspect that sparks could fly Pride Park.

What's more, Derby sit sixth in the English Championship disciplinary standings with their 1.60 card per game average, while Sheffield Wednesday are averaging 1.47 bookings per 90 minutes this term.

It's also worth noting that experienced Premier League referee Mike Dean has been selected to take charge of this huge relegation showdown,

The Wirral-born whistler has a reputation for being card-happy – Dean is averaging 3.73 cards per-game in the Premier League this season – and with a nervy clash excepted here, I'm more than happy to back both teams to see over one card at even-money with William Hill.
