Tip Leeds - Derby County
Leeds United fans will be getting concerned that their team might be blowing their automatic promotion chances. They still lead the Championship by two points but that's only because second-placed Norwich aren't in the best of form either. Leeds have lost their last three games, two in the league and an FA Cup loss at QPR. They have conceded eight goals in those three games and with three of the four league games that follow ths match with Derby, they need to get some points. Leeds had won four home league games in a row before losing at home to Hull City.
Derby County lost 4-1 at home to Leeds United in the early weeks of the Championship. They begin this game in sixth place, six points off the automatic promotion spots and eight behind Leeds United. They have a four-point gap to the side in seventh so a play-off place is looking good but like Leeds aren't in the best of form. County have only won one of their last five league games but do have three wins in their last five. Not an easy game to predict with both sides not at their best but a bet on over 2.5 goals to be scored looks the one to go for.

Four of the last five Derby County away league games have had over 2.5 goals scored in them.
