Leeds v Derby Championship, 14th January 7.45pm
There is a big clash in the Championship on Friday night with the promotion-chasing Leeds and Derby going head to head in a heavyweight battle. Leeds start the game in fifth place and five points ahead of seventh-positioned Derby. So Leeds could give themselves a huge cushion in the top six with a win in this one, while the Rams need to claw out a win which would see them move, even temporarily in the play offs spots. A lot at stake in his one and it could be a great match up to tune in to. Leeds are 8/5 for the win, with the draw at 2/10 and Derby are at 9/5 for victory.

Leeds v Derby Betting Tips
So a big game in store here and a valuable three points up for grabs in the fixture as well. Leeds won’t be happy with the recent fixture line up as they had to play their FA Cup third round tie against Cambridge on Monday night and then they go back into league action on Friday night. Not much of a rest for them then but boss Garry Monk obviously changed things up in terms of personnel for the Cambridge trip (which Leeds won). United are on a great stretch of form, five unbeaten in the Championship now in a W4 D1 record. They have lost only two of their last thirteen league matches now in a brilliant run of W9 D2 L2 record. So they are on fire and the reading is even better when you look at their home form. They have won five of their last six on home soil and have lost just one of their last ten Championship home fixtures.
Overall Leeds have gone W8 D2 L3 this season on home soil and their defence is pretty immense. They are on a four match clean sheet streak at home and have kept one in five of their last six on home soil. Newcastle are the only side to have netted at Elland Road in that sequence. Leeds have given up just the 9 goals on home soil this season and a Leeds to win to nil wager at William Hill is a good price of 3/1. Leeds lost 1-0 at Derby earlier in the season and it is probably worth going for the game to drift under 2.5 goals on this one, because Derby are not exactly a pushover either. In the anytime goalscorer market United have Chris Wood trading as 13/8 favourite to net. Leeds are unbeaten in their last three at home against Derby in the Championship (W1 D2).
So this is probably going to be tight and both teams to score at William Hill is a price of even money. The Rams need a win here to really boost their play off chances. They are carrying terrific form as well. They were on a ten match unbeaten streak in the Championship (W8 D2) before they slipped to a defeat to Norwich on January 2nd. So will they be able to bounce back from that away defeat? The Rams have gone W5 D3 L4 away from home this season and that loss at Norwich snapped a four match unbeaten streak (W3 D1) from them on the road. So they are in good form and they have still kept seven clean sheets in their last nine Championship matches. In the correct score market at 1-1 return is a strong price of 5/1 or you can take a 6/1 quote on either Leeds or Derby running out with a 1-0 win. This Is going to be tight tense and enthralling.
Who will win – Leeds v Derby Predictions
A good match up to come between two very good defences. There really isn’t too much to chose between them and Leeds have been terrific on home soil lately which suggests that they are not going to slip up in this one. Derby don’t give much away at the back and are the lowest scoring side in the top 16 in the Championship at the moment. Under 2.5 goals all the way and a 1-1 correct score is screaming appeal.
