Fulham vs Derby County – England Championship Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
All football supporter’s eyes are usually on the top leagues weekend after weekend, but we can all agree that the English Championship offers lots of excitement and should definitely be on our watch list.
Although games there can be hard to predict due to the close value of most of the teams, we have a few ideas for some of this weekend’s games. First up: Fulham vs. Derby County.
Fulham vs Derby County – 17/12/2016
Betting Odds At The Best UK Bookmakers
FT Result: Fulham 2.30 or 13/10 Draw 3.50 or 5/2 Derby 3.30 or 23/10
Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.80 or 4/5 Under 2.00 or 1/1
Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.66 or 4/6 No 2.10 or 11/10
Fulham is currently sitting 10th, with a 36-26 goal difference and 32 points, just 3 behind their opponents. Their home and away forms are exactly the same, with 16 points in both, so we can’t really discuss home ground advantage for their last game.
They seem like a typical upper-mid table team, with good runs alternating with dips in form, and they’ll likely finish just below the playoff spots, somewhere between 12th and 7th place. Last season, they only won one point in two clashes against Derby, a record they will be looking to improve this weekend.
On the other hand, it has to say that Derby has been impressive recently. Best defense in the league with 13 goals conceded, 7 straight league wins and not conceding in their last 5 are all things to boast with.
They are looking for their 8th win in a row, one that could cement their playoff spot and possibly send them third, just below Newcastle and Brighton which seem to have escaped the pack.
We will be looking to take advantage of one other record Derby holds: only one of their previous 10 away games was an “over” game.
Fulham vs Derby County Betting Tips
That’s our main prediction of the day. Under 2,5 goals, coupled with a possible X2 bet, since we don’t believe Fulham will be able to win this game, due to the good form of their opponents and the fact that they aren’t really chasing any objective at the moment. Good luck!
Derby 0.0, +0.5 @ 1.900
Draw With Goals @ 4.30 or 33/10
