Leeds United v Nottingham Forest Betting Tips: 1, 2018-01-01

Championship Tips
LEEDS UNITED v NOTTINGHAM FOREST Monday 1st January 2018 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Championship Betting Tips Leeds United’s impressive six match sequence without defeat ended in abrupt fashion away at bottom placed Birmingham City on Saturday afternoon in a 1-0 defeat, but they now return to Elland Road where they get a chance to quickly redeem themselves when they entertain Nottingham Forest on New Years Day. Leeds had strung together five wins during this recent run of form which saw the west Yorkshire outfit record wins over Barnsley, QPR, Norwich City, Hull City and Burton Albion, but having won three of their last four at home, they’ll be keen to set the record straight here. Leeds hold a fairly solid home record of  6-3-3  17/9 which includes six clean sheets as manager, Thomas Christiansen, has tightened things up at the back for the hosts, while the likes of Roofe (7 goals), along with Lasogga and Alioski (5 goals apiece) provide the cutting edge up front. Nottingham Forest’s inconsistent streak was evident once again on Saturday when they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat at their City Ground to struggling Sunderland who now seem to be finding some traction under new manager, Chris Coleman. The loss to the Black Cats became Forest’s third defeat in four matches, having previously suffered defeats to Bristol City and Sheffield Wednesday, and the outlook looks even bleaker away from home as the Tricky Trees have now gone five matches without success on their travels. Indeed, Forest have gained just one away win from their last eight on the road amidst a disappointing away record of  3-1-8  16/25 which includes just one clean sheet for their troubles. I’ll therefore back Leeds with the better organised defence to bounce back with a win here today. Pick: Leeds United to win @ 1.93 Bet Victor

Leeds United v Derby County Betting Tips: 2 AH0, 2017-10-31

Championship Tips
LEEDS UNITED v DERBY COUNTY Tuesday 31st October 2017 - Kickoff: 1945hrs Football - England - Championship Betting Tips At Elland Road in west Yorkshire, Leeds United will be eager to take all three points in Tuesday night’s clash with Derby County in order to maintain their play-off ambition at the expense of tonight’s visitors. Leeds still remain in fifth place in the Championship despite some ordinary results recently which have seen Thomas Christiansen’s side lose four of their last five overall, with a 3-0 win away at Bristol City saving their blushes in recent weeks. However, defeats to Cardiff City, Sheffield Wednesday, Reading and Sheffield United - the latter two being on home turf, won’t have done their confidence any favours. After a promising five match unbeaten run at Elland Road, Leeds have since slumped to back-to-back defeats, with the transfer of former striker Chris Wood to Premier League Burnley no doubt starting to have an effect. Visitors Derby County extended their unbeaten run to six league matches in the Championship on the weekend when they registered all three points in a 2-1 win at Norwich City and The Rams are now within striking distance of the play-off pack, knowing all three points this evening could lift them as high as fourth place. Derby bring a three-match winning streak into tonight’s encounter on the back of wins over Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday as well as the aforementioned Norwich win, and their performances away from home have also improved in recent weeks as they’ve collected points on the road with draws at Brentford and Cardiff City. Derby’s away record reads  2-3-2  8/11 and manager, Garry Rowett, has the likes of Vydra (6 goals) and Nugent (4 goals) up front who should cause the Leeds defence a few problems. Pick: Derby County AH0 @ 2.23 Unibet

Leeds United v Sheffield United Betting Tips: 1 AH0, 2017-10-27

Championship Tips
LEEDS UNITED v SHEFFIELD UNITED Friday 27th October 2017 - Kickoff: 1945hrs Football - England - Championship Betting Tips Friday night brings us an all-Yorkshire derby between Leeds United and Sheffield United at Elland Road as the hosts, Leeds, will be looking to build upon their recent revival where they beat Bristol City away from home last weekend. Leeds United bounced back from three previous defeats on the trot to record a 3-0 win at Bristol City following earlier losses to Cardiff City, Sheffield Wednesday and Reading, and they’ll now look to re-ignite their play-off ambitions at Elland Road where they possess a solid looking home record of  3-2-1 10/3. Prior to defeat last time out on home turf to Reading, Leeds had put together a three match winning sequence against Burton Albion, Birmingham City and Ipswich Town, and with midfielder Saiz and forward Lasogga (4 goals apiece), the hosts should get something from this match. Sheffield United have acquitted themselves really well in their return to the Championship so far this season after a six year absence as The Blades currently occupy third place in the English second tier and level on points with second placed Cardiff City. Blades manager, Chris Wilder, has done a fantastic job with his side and the rewards are there for all to see as his team have racked up four wins from their last five league matches with wins over city rivals Sheffield Wednesday, along with additional wins over Wolves, Ipswich Town and Reading. However, Sheffield United have been inconsistent away from home so far this season, and although they’ve registered wins at Sunderland, Bolton Wanderers and Sheffield Wednesday, all three of these victories have been achieved against bottom half sides, amidst an overall away record of  3-0-3  8/8. I’ll therefore back Leeds with the reasonably priced draw no bet option. Pick: Leeds United AH0 @ 1.66 Bet Victor

Cardiff City v Leeds United Betting Tips: BTTS, 2017-09-26

Championship Tips
CARDIFF CITY v LEEDS UNITED Tuesday 26th September 2017 - Kickoff: 1945hrs Football - England - Championship Betting Tips Championship action continues during this week too and the pick of these midweek fixtures is a clash between third placed Cardiff City and Championship league leaders, Leeds United, at the Cardiff City Stadium on Tuesday night with a valuable three points up for grabs for both teams. Cardiff City manager, Neil Warnock has fired his troops up in these early weeks of the new season and they’ve responded well on the back of a revival under Warnock when he arrived at the club halfway through last season, with The Bluebirds struggling near the bottom of the Championship. This season though, they’ve been a revelation as they sit in third spot in the English second tier having suffered just one defeat from the first nine league matches of the season. In addition, Cardiff are unbeaten so far at home with a record of  3-1-0  8/2 which include wins over Aston Villa, Sheffield United and QPR. Look out for Mendez-Laing and Hoilett in the final third. Visitors Leeds United have also staged somewhat of a comeback in recent times as they sit top of the Championship by virtue of a better goal difference ahead of Wolves, and indeed, Cardiff, but they face a tough encounter in Wales this evening. Following former manager, Garry Monk’s departure to Middlesbrough, Thomas Christiansen has taken over the reigns at Elland Road and has seen his side make an immediate impact in this new campaign with six wins from their first nine league matches this season. Leeds have also been impressive away from home too, and this hasn’t always been the case in previous seasons, but an early record of  3-0-1 7/3 including wins at Bolton Wanderers, Sunderland and Nottingham Forest mean that they need to be respected. Pick: Both teams to score @ 1.87 Comeon

Bolton v Leeds United Betting Tips: BTTS, 2017-08-06

Championship Tips
BOLTON WANDERERS v LEEDS UNITED Sunday 6th August 2017 - Kickoff: 1630hrs Football - England - Championship Betting Tips Bolton Wanderers will start their new season back in the Championship following last season’s automatic promotion from League One, as The Trotters bounced back in triumphant style under the guidance of manager Phil Parkinson. Bolton will take on Leeds United this afternoon at their Macron Stadium with renewed belief and optimism that they can consolidate their position in the English second tier this time around, although their pre-season warm up fixtures saw Bolton win just three of their seven matches played. Much will depend upon the fitness of experienced defender, Wheater in this campaign, but up front, Parkinson has a useful looking attacking quartet in Le Fondre, Madine, Armstrong and Wilbraham which he can rotate with seemingly no ‘weak links’. Visitors Leeds United produced a strong first half of last season as they seemed to be on their way to achieving a play-off spot under former manager, Garry Monk, but United fell away sharply in the second half of the season, winning just five further matches from early February to the end of the season. On the positive side, former owner, Massimo Cellini has been bought out by another Italian, Andrea Radrizzani, while Monk left for Middlesbrough, and former APOEL Nicosia manager, Thomas Christiansen, has replaced him in the Elland Road ‘hot seat’. New Zealand striker, Chris Wood, topped the Championship goalscoring charts last season with 27 goals, and it still mystifies me why he isn’t playing Premier League football. If Leeds can go on a winning run again and keep Woods after January, they could challenge for a play-off spot. Pick; Both teams to score @ 1.91 William Hill

Leeds v Nottm Forest Betting Tips: 1, 2017-01-25

Championship Tips
LEEDS UNITED v NOTTINGHAM FOREST Wednesday 25th January 2017 - Kickoff: 1945hrs Football - England - Championship Betting Tips Although Leeds United suffered a 3-2 defeat away at Barnsley last weekend, they’ll still remain in confident mood ahead of their Wednesday night clash against Nottingham Forest at Elland Road as the hosts possess a pretty solid record on home turf. Garry Monk’s Leeds side have been in impressive form in recent weeks as they’ve chalked up five wins from their last six in the Championship which has seen them lift themselves up into play-off contention, sitting in fourth place in the league table. Leeds’ home record stands at  9-2-3  19/9 and Monk’s influence has seen an improvement in their defensive qualities as they’ve kept seven clean sheets to date, including five on the trot in recent times, with recent wins over Aston Villa, Reading, Brentford, Rotherham United and Derby County all being to nil. Visitors Nottingham Forest changed managers recently with former boss Philip Montagnier being shown the door after some dreadful results, and Gary Brazil has now taken over at the helm at the City Ground. As is usually the case, this has seen an instant turnaround in form with Forest taking a point at Birmingham City in a 0-0 draw and then securing a vital three points last weekend with a 1-0 home win over strugglers Bristol City. But it remains to be sen if they can continue this improvement in results and a tough trip to Leeds United should give us a better idea of where they’re at; Nottingham Forest are without an away win for four matches on their travels as they’ve suffered defeats at Derby County, Huddersfield Town and Newcastle United before the point at Birmingham. Pick: Leeds United to win @ 1.80 Betfair

Leeds United v Derby County Betting Tips: 1 AH+0.25, 2017-01-13

Championship Tips
LEEDS UNITED v DERBY COUNTY Friday 13th January 2017 - Kickoff: 1945hrs Football - England - Championship Betting Tips Leeds United showed great character by coming from a goal behind away at Cambridge United in the third round of the FA Cup as they eventually overcame their League Two opponents with a 2-1 win to send them into the next round. Leeds take on Derby County next in a Championship clash on Friday night at Elland Road with the west Yorkshire outfit on a decent run of form which has seen them go six matches without defeat in al competitions, which includes league wins over Reading, Brentford, Preston North End and Rotherham United. Leeds’ overall home record stands at  8-2-3  18/9 and this includes winning their last four on the trot on home turf in addition to keeping clean sheets in all of these victories. Leading goalscorer Wood (13 goals) should return to the starting line-up here after being rested on the bench for the cup game. Visitors Derby County crashed to a 3-0 defeat away at Norwich City in the Championship prior to their triumphant third round FA Cup win away at Premier League West Brom, although wins over teams in the Premier League are now taken with a slight pinch of salt due to the league taking precedent over the cup nowadays. Nevertheless, Derby make the trip north on the back of just one defeat from their last 11 matches overall in the English second tier, although there still appears to be further attention required to Derby’s results away from home as The Rams’ away record stands at a slightly disappointing 5-3-4  12/13. This is likely to be a close encounter, but I’ll back Leeds with the handicap here. Pick: Leeds United AH+0.25 @ 1.58 Bet Victor

Leeds v Rotherham Betting Tips: 1, 2017-01-02

Championship Tips
LEEDS UNITED v ROTHERHAM UNITED Monday 2nd January 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Championship Betting Tips It’s west versus south in this Yorkshire clash between hosts Leeds United and visitors Rotherham United at Elland Road on Monday afternoon with Leeds looking to extend their unbeaten run in the Championship to five matches. Leeds have recently posted wins against Reading, Brentford and Preston North End along with a valuable point away at unbeaten Aston Villa at Villa Park as Garry Monk’s team look to consolidate their current play-off position. The words Leeds United and play-offs were a far and distant dream for many a manager before Monk took over as the club experienced its most turbulent period in its history, but the arrival of the former Swansea City manager has steadied the ship and the hosts are now making headway in the English second tier. Visitors Rotherham United recently slumped to another defeat last Thursday when they went down 2-1 at home to fellow relegation rivals Burton Albion at their New York Stadium, and The Millers have been cast adrift at the bottom of the Championship as a result. Rotherham now find themselves 11 points behind Cardiff City who occupy the safety position of 21st in the Championship, and with a trip to an in-form Leeds United pending, Rotherham may take another step towards relegation here this afternoon. Despite recent home wins over QPR and Wigan Athletic, Rotherham’s away form has been simply disastrous as their record of  0-1-11  10/33 indicates, as well as having lost their last four trips on the trot at Derby County, Burton Albion, Fulham and Sheffield Wednesday. This should be a straightforward win for Leeds here.

Aston Villa v Leeds United Betting Tips: BTTS, 2016-12-29

Championship Tips
ASTON VILLA v LEEDS UNITED Thursday 29th December 2016 - Kickoff: 1945hrs Football - England - Championship Betting Tips Aston Villa have climbed into the top half of the Championship thanks to a revival that was kick-started by the arrival of new manager Steve Bruce who is hugely experienced at getting teams promoted from this division. Villa head into Thursday night’s encounter with Leeds United on the back of wins over QPR and Burton Albion and another three points this evening could see the west midlands club move into 7th place and closer to the play-off pack. Aston Villa hold a decent record at Villa Park with a record that stands at  6-5-0 18/9 as they still remain unbeaten on home turf and indeed, they’re the only side to remain so this season to date. However, despite conceding only 9 goals all season at home so far, they’ve kept just three clean sheets while both teams have scored at Villa Park in 8 of the 11 matches played. Visitors Leeds United also installed a new manager at Elland Road with the arrival of Garry Monk after he was released by Swansea City, and Monk has worked wonders with his young Leeds outfit as they proudly sit in 5th place in the Championship after a few turbulent seasons in West Yorkshire. Leeds are also in good form of late as they’ve recently secured wins over Reading, Brentford and Preston North End and they’ll be confident that they can take something from their trip to Birmingham on Thursday night as they push for a play-off place in the English second tier. The Yorkshire side have blown hot and cold on their travels to date as they’ve tended not to deal in draws, but rather a win or lose mentality which is reflected in their away record that stands at  6-0-5  15/14. I’m therefore confident that both teams can find the back of the net in this clash. Pick: Both teams to score @ 2.10 Unibet

Leeds v Burton Betting Tips: 1 AH-0.25, 2016-10-29

Championship Tips
LEEDS UNITED v BURTON ALBION Saturday 29th October 2016 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Championship Betting Tips Leeds United registered a very useful three points in their last match with a 1-0 win away at Molineux against Wolves and Garry Monk’s boys now host new-boys Burton Albion at Elland Road on Saturday as they seek back-to-back wins in the Championship. Leeds are now starting to gather some momentum back at Elland Road too under the guidance of Monk as they have now gone four matches without defeat on home soil having won three of the last four with wins gained over Blackburn Rovers, Ipswich Town and Barnsley along with a point shared with Wigan Athletic last time out. After a shaky start, Monk now appears to have his side playing in his style and the points are starting to come, while in Chris Wood he has a striker that has scored goals on a consistent basis with 56 goals of his career total of 65 in the league have been in the Championship. Visitors Burton Albion have done reasonably well in their first ever season in the Championship to date as they sit in 15th place as they’ve held their own so far in this new campaign. Manager Nigel Clough would also have been delighted with his side’s 2-0 home win over Birmingham City last Friday which puts them five points clear of the bottom four. Burton have suffered just one defeat in their last five in the Championship which was a 2-0 loss away at Ipswich Town, and I daresay they’ll be heavily depending upon their form at their Pirelli Stadium to keep them out of trouble this term. The Brewers are yet to register an away win at this level this season with an overall away record of  0-4-3  8/13 and they now come up against a Leeds United outfit who are starting to build momentum. Pick: Leeds United AH-0.25 @ 1.77 Bet Victor
