Leeds United - Derby County Betting Preview: Backing both teams to score can prove profitable

Neil Warnock's side suffered a disappointing defeat against Ipswich Town on Saturday but Willie Duncan is backing the Whites to bounce back against Nigel Clough's men on Monday
Leeds United’s slim hopes of making the Championship play-offs were severely dented at the weekend when they crashed to a 3-0 defeat against Ipswich Town at Portman Road on Saturday afternoon. As a result, Neil Warnock knows that nothing less than a victory will do when his side face Derby County at Elland Road on Monday evening.

The Whites are chalked up as Coral’s 11/10 (2.10) favourites to bounce back from the weekend’s setback by seeing off the Rams while Nigel Clough’s men are rated as a 12/5 (3.40) chance with Coral to claim all three points from their trip to Yorkshire. The same firm also go 12/5 (3.40) that the match ends in stalemate.

The hosts are without a win in their last five matches and will be desperate to atone here while back-to-back victories over Leicester City and Bristol City respectively ended an eight-match winless streak for the visitors, so neither side comes into this match in sparkling form.

It is worth noting that Derby have managed an impressive 57 league goals this season but Nigel Clough’s side have leaked 34 goals on the road - a statistic which has contributed to Derby having the second poorest away record in the league this term.

With that in mind, Coral’s generous 10/11 (1.91) quote for both sides to score on Monday looks to be a solid selection and is worthy of support and should be backed accordingly while the 23/20 (2.15) on offer from the same firm for three or more goals to be scored is tempting.

Leeds have found consistency at Elland Road this term and are capable of edging what promises to be an open encounter on Monday so those looking to back bigger prices should snap up Coral’s juicy 9/1 (10.0) quote from the Whites to record a 2-1 victory.

The same firm’s 5/1 (6.0) quote for striker Steve Morison, who has scored three goals in nine appearances for Neil Warnock’s men, to break the deadlock is another selection that is sure to attract support from punters.
