Derby v Hull Free £2 Scorecast bet offer at Boylesports

Boylesports
Friday night sees the return of the Championship with what should be a tight battle at Pride Park between Derby and Hull. The Rams have won just one of their last four home games against Hull and they will have been a little disappointed with their start this season having collected seven points from five games. But Hull have just the seven points as well so this should be an interesting affair. While the Rams have been nothing more than average going forward and pretty loose at the back, Hull have had no problems scoring, netting twelve goals in five games. Will that be the difference between the two? Derby are even money to win, with the draw at 12/5 and Hull are at 11/4. Place a first goalscorer and correct score on the Derby v Hull game and get a free scorecast on your selections from Boylesports! All customers can take advantage of this.

Derby v Hull Championship Predictions & Betting Odds – 8th September 2017

Championship Betting
Derby v Hull Betting Preview - Championship 8th September 7.45pm A good looking clash from Pride Park to come on Friday night as the domestic action returns to the Championship after the international break. Both of these have collected seven points from their respective opening five games of the new season and so this should be a pretty good contest. The Rams though have only managed one win in their last four home games against the Tigers, but they are kicking off as favourites to pick up the three points in this opener to the weekend. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half-time/full-time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then Bet365 will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet through their great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches. This applies to all matches in their sportsbook. Register an account with the award winning Bet365 and earn a 100% matched deposit bonus from them and enjoy top features like live sports streams, extensive live in play betting and partial cash out options on live bets.

Derby v Hull Betting Tips

The Rams will be heading into just their third home game of the season in the Championship on Friday night. So far they have lost against Wolves and have beaten Preston at Pride Park. Just before the international break, they suffered a tough 3-1 loss out at Bramall Lane against Sheffield United, snapping a two match winning streak that they were on. The Rams have been steady and unspectacular in front of goal so far averaging just a goal per game. Each of the last three meetings between Derby and Hull at Pride Park have seen more than two goals, so over 2.5 goals at bet365 returns a price of 21/20 and that’s not bad value at all. Up in the anytime goalscorer market for the game, David Nugent is a 6/4 option with Matej Vydra at 7/4 options for the Rams. Chris Martin is 7/4 outright favourite. While Derby have on paper, the better attack, Hull look the more likely of the two to score. Hull have not been goal shy this season in the Championship and pounded Bolton 4-0 just before the international break. However, they have picked up just the one point from their two games out on the road in the league so far this season. They do have the form on the road at Derby though having won three of their last four visits there, scoring at least two goals in each of those three wins. The Tigers played Derby four times in the 2015/16 season and Hull managed to win just one of those, the Rams winning the other three to nil. In the bet365 correct score market, a Derby 2-1 victory is a price of 15/2, while the shortest option on a Hull win is a 1-0 scoreline for them at 17/2. The Tigers should be a threat to them averaging over two goals per game so far this season, but they haven’t quite clicked out on the road. Both teams not to score at bet365 is a price of 5/6 and only two of the last ten meetings have both teams scored in the game. So a good betting trend there. Jarrod Bowen has three goals in his last two league games for the Rams and is a 4/1 anytime goalscorer option.

Derby v Hull Betting Odds

Derby 10/11, Draw 13/5, Hull 14/5

Derby v Hull Predictions

Draw: This looks too tight to call. Hull have produced the goals this season but not the away form, while they do have the form at Pride Park. The Rams have the overall head to head form going from recent games but may not pack enough of a punch going forward to take down the Tigers. Draw.

Sunderland v Derby Championship Predictions & Betting Odds – 4th August 2017

Championship Betting
Sunderland v Derby Betting Preview - Championship 4th August 7.45pm The Black Cats make their start in the Championship and will quickly be looking to put that miserable Premier League season last term behind them. Simon Grayson is at the helm to try and get the Mackems back up to the top flight and they open their campaign on Friday night against Derby. The Rams could have been in better play off contention last season and they will be hoping that after a couple of big summer signings, they will be in the mix this time around.

Sunderland v Derby Betting Tips

Sunderland were dismayed at their relegation, but at no point in the season did they look as if they had the quality to stay in the top flight. Now the hard work begins to get back up them. Jermain Defoe, who was their only source of goals last term has moved on to Bournemouth and the Mackems have purchased Aiden McGeady from Everton, Jaymes Vaughan and Jason Steele from Blackburn. They have brought in Lewis Grabban on loan from Bournemouth to help out their cause as. But there hasn’t been a great deal of movement in the transfer market. Will they struggle for goals this season? A Sunderland to win by a one goal margin only at bet365 is a 6/5 punt in this one. They do have some head to head form against Derby. Their most recent meetings were in the 2007/08 Premier League and Sunderland collected four points from those two meetings. The Black Cats are currently on a ten match unbeaten streak of form against the Rams so that makes them fully backable at the Stadium of Light in this season opener of theirs. Sunderland are W6 D4 in that sequence of games. Not only that, they have five clean sheets in their last ten against the Rams and have four of them in their last six against them. A Sunderland to win to nil wager at bet365 looks value at 13/5 or you can go shopping around in the correct score market where a Sunderland 1-0 correct score punt at bet365 is a solid 6/1 value. Sunderland won their last home games against the Rams with a 1-0 victory. The Rams finished ninth in last season’s Championship. They were solid enough at home, but they just couldn't back it up out on the road. Away from home, last season Derby took a W7 D5 L11 record on the road, and that meant that they missed out on getting themselves into the play off picture. Both teams to score in this one, backing the Rams to get something on the board at least to make this interesting is a price of 4/5. That having been said they failed to score in either of their last two games against the Black Cats. They have been spending in the summer, bringing Andre Wisdom and Tom Huddlestone to the club for a combined total of around £6.5 million. They will want better this season but this isn’t an easy opener for them.

Sunderland v Derby Betting Odds

Sunderland 23/20, Draw 12/5, Derby 23/10

Sunderland v Derby Predictions

Sunderland to win: The Black Cats have the head to head form going against the Rams and because they will want to come out firing, especially on home soil, they can be backed to land the win. It will probably only be a narrow one, but the three points can be collected by the home side in this Friday night encounter.

Sheffield Wednesday v Derby Championship Predictions & Betting Odds – 22nd April 2017

Championship Betting
Sheffield Wednesday v Derby Betting Preview - Championship 22nd April 3.00pm The Owls just need to get themselves over the finish line to secure a play off spot this season. Just when that looked in jeopardy they have produced some cracking form to win their last four games on the bounce. They just need a little more to get over the line and they can take a big step towards that with a win in this one. Derby have been in decent form lately but will miss out on the play-offs this season. Each week you can claim a free £5 bet with bookmaker SkyBet. This is because they run their great Sky Bet Club which is open to all punters. After opening an account with the bookmaker (where you can claim a free £20 bet bonus) you can go and opt in to the Sky Bet Club.

Just stay in the club by making the qualifying bets each week and you can keep collecting the free bets!

Sheffield Wednesday v Derby Betting Tips

The Owls are a very good home side and they are going to need to call on that for this one, as it is an important game for them. They have won their last two games on home soil in the league and that includes a win over Newcastle. They have hit a bit of form now with a four-match winning streak home and away, going unbeaten in five. That has been in response to a poor run of form where they won just one of their previous seven league games which put their play-off place in jeopardy. They are back in a strong position and just need to finish the job. So they are finishing the season strongly now and at Hillsborough this season they have posted a W14 D2 L5 record. They did suffer a 2-0 defeat earlier this season against Derby, and they haven’t won any of their last four on home soil against Hillsborough against the Rams (D3 L1). They need the points in this one and under 2.5 goals in the game at SkyBet for 9/10 is the way to go as each of the last three between these at Hillsborough have gone under the goal line. A Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 correct score bet at SkyBet is a price of 6/1. The Rams have been doing alright lately and have gone W3 D2 L1 in their last six league games. They have failed to pick up a win in their last two though after they were smashed by Brentford and then had to pull out a last-gasp equaliser against Huddersfield in midweek action. They aren’t going to get themselves in the play offs this season but could make life a little tricky for the Owls. But them picking up a win doesn't look too likely for them though as they have triumphed in just one of their last seven games away from home now in a W1 D1 L5 record and they failed to score in any of those defeats. A Sheffield Wednesday to win to nil bet at SkyBet is a quote of 2/1. Unlike Wednesday though, the Rams don’t have anything to play for. In the SkyBet anytime goalscorer market, Jordan Rhodes is up as 10/11 favourite for the Owls, with Fernando Forestieri at 11/10 and for the Rams, there is Darren Bent and David Nugent around the 5/2 mark. Derby have recorded a W7 D4 L10 record away from home this season.

Sheffield Wednesday v Derby Betting Odds

Sheffield Wednesday 3/4, Draw 5/2, Derby 4/1

Sheffield Wednesday v Derby Predictions

Sheffield Wednesday Home Win: Look for the Owls to win to nil. They don’t have the winning form at home against the Rams but they can produce in this one as they have to step up and they are running in good form. The Rams have been poor on the road, so look for the three points to go to the home side.

Derby v Huddersfield Championship Predictions & Betting Odds – 17th April 2017

Championship Betting
Derby v Huddersfield Championship Predictions & Betting Odds - 17th April 2017 This isn’t an easy game for Huddersfield out on the road against a side who have found a bit of winning form at home. Derby’s slump in the second half of the seasons means that they are going to miss out on a play off spot, but they could throw a spanner in the works of Huddersfield's push to secure third place in the Championship.

Derby v Huddersfield Betting Tips

The Rams really should have had a shot at the play-offs this season but their patchy form since February has pretty much put paid to that. However, they have been on the up in general lately and they are on a two-match winning streak at home in the Championship. They have remained unbeaten on home soil in their last five at Pride Park (W3 D2) and they have lost just one of their last sixteen home games in the Championship. So the Terriers aren’t going to get an easy game out on the road in this one at all. Derby suffered a 1-0 loss at Huddersfield earlier in the campaign but the Rams have enough on home soil to perhaps reverse that. A Derby 1-0 correct score at William Hill is a good price of 11/2. It is likely that Derby are going to hold their own and force this into being a tight contest. David Nugent is trading at 2/1 in the anytime goalscorer market. It has been a very strong campaign from Huddersfield overall but maybe a bit of pressure is creeping in as they try and secure the third spot in the table. There was a shocking 4-0 loss out at the lowly Bristol City recently and they followed that up with a defeat in their following away game at Nottingham Forest. So after back to back away defeats, the Terriers have gone W1 D1 L2 in their last four out on the road. They have just been struggling for goals a little bit lately and under 2.5 goals at William Hill is a value punt at a price of 19/20. Overall this season, the Terriers have posted a W9 D3 L8 away from home. Elias Kachunga and Nahki Wells are big positives for them in the anytime goalscorer market and both of them are trading at 2/1. Huddersfield do hold a game in hand over those around them in the play-off battle for third. They may need to up their away form though and that’s not easy in this one.

Derby v Huddersfield Betting Odds

Derby 17/11, Draw 12/5, Huddersfield 13/8

Derby v Huddersfield Predictions

Derby Home Win: We would have to roll with the home side taking the win in this one and upsetting the Terriers. The Rams have done well enough on home soil lately to spring three points in this one and they have won their last four on home soil against Huddersfield as well.

Derby v QPR Championship Predictions & Betting Odds – 31st March 2017

Championship Betting
Derby v QPR Betting Preview - Championship 31st March 7.45pm The Rams start the weekend a big nine points outside of the play offs spots and with just one win in their last six league outings, their season has rapidly fallen apart. A defeat in this one could all but see their hopes of landing a top six place finish. They face a QPR side who have really found their feet and who are climbing up the table nicely. Rangers have won four of their last six league games played and may pose the out-of-sorts Rams a problem or two in this Friday night fixture. One of the top football betting products around is Bet365’s 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance which they offer on all matches listed in their sportsbook. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half time/full time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet. This applies to all matches in their sportsbook. Register an account with the award winning Bet365 and earn a 100% matched deposit bonus from them and enjoy other top features like each-way goalscorer odds, live streams and cash out options.

Derby v QPR Betting Tips

It has been a disappointing return from Derby since February really. They were solid enough over the first half of the season to suggest that they can get themselves in the play off mix but that has rapidly faded. They have gone just W1 D4 L5 in their last nine league games. So wins have been hard to come by and at home, they have posted a W1 D3 L1 record in their last five fixtures. The Rams took a 1-0 win out at Loftus Road earlier in the season over Rangers and things have been tight between these two recent. A Derby 1-0 correct score at Bet365 is an 11/2 correct score option and the Rams have won two of their last three home games by that scoreline against the R’s. Both teams have failed to score in each of the last five meetings between the clubs and you can back that to happen again at a 4/5 price. Under 2.5 goals is a price of 7/10 with Bet365. Only 37% of Derby’s home games this season in the league have gone above the goal line and the Rams have been drawing at half-time in 13 of their 19 home games this season. So a tight game is on the cards in this one, particularly with QPR playing well at the moment. They have gone W5 D1 L1 in their last seven league games and have scored at least two goals in five of those seven games. It’s worth noting that the bulk of their positive results have happened at home and they have won just one of their last four on the road (D1 L2). However, overall they are doing well and could earn themselves a point in this one, as their recent 0-0 draw at play-off hopefuls Leeds proved. There has been a severe lack of clean sheets from the R's, who have taken just one in their last 12 league games, but they have the scoring at the moment to paper over that. QPR have a record of W2 D2 L2 in their last six trips to Pride Park in the Championship. A point wouldn't be a bad result for Rangers in this one, but three points would see them finish the weekend level on points with the slumping Rams.

Derby v QPR Betting Odds

Derby 19/20, Draw 5/2, QPR 11/4

Derby v QPR Predictions

QPR Away Win: The form is with Rangers in this one even though clean sheets have been hard to come by for them. They were on fire with a five-goal haul last weekend and even though they are a much better home side, the Rams are there for the taking.

Brighton v Derby Championship Predictions & Betting Odds – 10th March 2017

Championship Betting
Brighton v Derby Betting Preview - Championship 10th March 3.00pm A big chance for Brighton to get some pressure back onto leaders Newcastle. The Seagulls managed to arrest a little slump that they hit with a midweek win at Rotherham and now go into this Friday night fixture with just a three point deficit to Newcastle. So the Seagulls can make a big hole in that and they have been pretty immense on the south coast with just one loss in their last fifteen on home soil, which came against Newcastle. As for Derby, they have been struggling for wins lately and with some poor away form in the bag, are likely to succumb to Brighton’s huge need for three points. Online betting site Bet365 offer great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches which you can take advantage of. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half time/full time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet. This applies to all matches in their sportsbook. Register an account with the award winning Bet365 and earn a 100% matched deposit bonus from them and enjoy top features like live sports streams, extensive live in play betting and partial cash out options on live bets.

Brighton v Derby Betting Tips

Brighton hit a bit of a speed bump in their quest to land the Championship title as they suffered back to back defeats against Newcastle and Nottingham Forest. But they regained a little ground in the midweek round of games as they took a win at Rotherham while Newcastle couldn’t find a way past Reading. So Brighton are now just the three points behind leaders Newcastle and they can heap some pressure back on the Magpies with a win on Friday night at home against the Rams. They have been an immense side at home in the Championship this season with a record of W13 D3 L2 at home soil. Brighton have suffered just the one defeat in their last fifteen league games on the south coast and that was against Newcastle in the high profile clash at the end of February. Brights are on a fifteen match scoring streak at home so they will be expected to find a way through the Rams. A Brighton 1-0 correct score at Bet365 for the game is trading at a price of 5/1 and that looks to be some value for punters, because the Rams will offer up some resistance in this one. There was a 0-0 draw played out between the two of them on the opening weekend of the season at Pride Park and each of the last three between them now have ended in a draw. Brighton though have remained unbeaten in a W2 D3 record in their last five overall against the Rams so are carrying form. Brighton have bagged at least two goals in three of their last five against Derby now too. The Seagulls have only conceded 11 goals on home soil in the Championship this season and only 56% of their game there have gone over the 2.5 goal line. So under 2.5 goals at Bet365 for a quote of 4/6 should have big appeal. In the anytime goalscorer market there is a price of 7/5 on Glenn Murray with Tomer Hemed at 8/5. Big game for the Seagulls to start building momentum with again. Derby aren’t running in the kind of form that suggests that they will spring a surprise in this one. They have been stuttering badly since the start of February really with only a W1 D3 L4 record on the board in their last eight league games. They have lost their last three out on her road with consecutive 1-0 scorelines, so there is that result again. Derby have only scored in two of their last five league games and that suggests that they are going to have a tough time in breaking down Brighton’s good home defence. Away from home this season in the Championship, Derby have posted a W6 D3 L8 record so they haven’t been great. In their last seven on the road they have returned a miserable W1 D1 L5 record. David Nugent and Darren bent are 3/1 anytime goalscorer options for them on Friday night but they have their work cut out for them as an offensive unit. Both teams not to score at Bet365 for a price of even money looks a sound punt. It’s hard to see Derby winning this one, but they may set their stall out for a point.

Brighton v Derby Betting Odds

Brighton 19/20, Draw 13/5, Derby 7/2

Brighton v Derby Predictions

This is probably going to be a low scoring affair as Derby aren’t all that bad defensively. However, the Rams have lost four of their last six away games by a 1-0 scoreline and backing Brighton to get the three points by that return looks huge value. Brighton have been fantastic on the south coast and the poor away form of the Rams isn’t likely to disrupt their chances at all in this one. Look for the home win and under 2.5 goals on the match as well.

Leicester v Derby FA Cup Predictions & Betting Odds – 8th February 2017

Leicester
Leicester v Derby Betting Preview - FA Cup 8th February 7.45pm So punters will be wondering how to approach this FA Cup fourth round replay. The Foxes only survived their trip to Pride Park thanks to a late equaliser from captain Wes Morgan. But despite the 2-2 scoreline, the Rams didn’t offer a tremendous amount of threat going forward. But Leicester are going along so poorly at the moment, so will they be at risk because punters are having a hard time of trusting them with anything at the moment? Can the Foxes pull themselves through based on Derby missing their big chance to pull off the upset at the first attempt? It should be pretty interesting at the King Power. Online betting site Bet365 offer great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches which you can take advantage of. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half time/full time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet. This applies to all matches in their sportsbook. Register an account with the award winning Bet365 and earn a 100% matched deposit bonus from them and enjoy top features like live sports streams, extensive live in play betting and partial cash out options on live bets.

Leicester v Derby FA Cup Betting Tips

Where do you find value in Leicester? It is a pretty tough thing to do at the moment because of the huge mess that they are in. They have failed to win any of their last five games now in all competitions (D1 L4) and they are sliding badly in the Premier League. They were smashed 3-0 by Manchester United at the King Power on the weekend and they are really staring down the barrel of relegation at the moment. The Foxes have scored in just two of their last seven games in all exemptions, and both of those games came in the FA Cup. So maybe there is a glimmer of possibility for them in this one. Leicester won at Everton 2-1 in the third round and then earned a 2-2 draw at Derby in the first attempt. Both teams to score at Bet365 will return you a pretty decent price of  10/11. That has happened in each of the last four between these in Leicester so there is a trend going. The Foxes have actually netted four goals exactly in three of their last four matches on home soil against Derby, netting a total of 14 goals. So there is reason enough to have a look over 2.5 goals at Bet365 which will return you a price of 11/10. Trading up in the first goalscorer market for the game is Islam Slimani and Jamie Vardy who are 9/2 joint favourites there, with Ahmed Musa at 5/1. They have yet to score a league goal in the 2017 calendar year, but seem to have no problem in the cup, so it is worth getting behind them to get on the scoresheet in this one. Leicester have posted a W8 D4 L5 record at the King Power this season across all competitions, but they have gone W1 L3 in their last four there, failing to score in any of those three defeats in that sequence. They dodged a bullet at Pride Park and the question is, can they take advantage of that. What could play into Leicester's hands is that Derby are not a free-scoring side. Derby have scored fewer goals than any other side in the top 13 in the Championship currently. So they may have a hard time matching up to Leicester at the King Power and despite putting two goals on the board in the meeting with the Foxes at Pride Park, the Rams didn’t look a particular threat in the game. They have produced a pretty solid defence this season have the Rams but they have been far better at home than they have been out on the road. Derby have only claimed the one clean sheet in their last six games out on the road which has led them to a W2 D1 L3 record. Each of the defeats in that sequence saw Derby fail to score in. Their big chance perhaps was at home in the first meeting against the Premier League outfit. They almost got themselves across the line, but that equaliser may have destroyed their hopes of being in the fifth round. Darren Bent is a 13/5 anytime goalscorer market for them, with Tom Ince at 11/4. As a beacon of hope, the Rams won at West Brom in the third round.

Leicester v Derby FA Cup Betting Odds

Leicester 21/20, Draw 12/5, Derby 16/5

Leicester v Derby FA Cup Predictions

We don’t see the Rams having enough to take down Leicester. The Foxes may well make changes and this should be a breath of fresh air for them, away from the pressure of the Premier League. Leicester have been scoring in the cup and there just looked enough evidence for the first meeting that they will handle the Rams at the King Power. Have a flutter on both teams to score, but for Leicester to find a win from somewhere.

Derby v Leicester FA Cup Predictions & Betting Odds – 27th January 2017

Leicester
Derby v Leicester Betting Preview - FA Cup 27th January 7.55pm A very interesting kick off on Friday night to start the fourth round of the FA Cup with. There is a potential FA Cup upset on the cards as well as the reigning Premier League champions Leicester, whose season has been a huge disappointment in all regards, head out on the road to face Derby. Championship side Derby have produced some solid form at Pride Park lately and punters will probably see them as having a decent chance of knocking off a premier League outfit in this one. After having already claimed a win over top flight opposition in West Brom, can the Rams march on? Online betting site Bet365 offer great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches which you can take advantage of. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half time/full time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet.

Derby v Leicester Betting Tips

The Rams claimed a Premier League scalp in the previous round of this season’s FA Cup when they claimed a 2-1 victory, against the odds, at the Hawthorns against West Brom. So after that success it is unlikely that they are going to be fearing facing up to Leicester very much. The Rams have been in great form on home soil and have recorded a W7 D2 record over their last nine on home soil across all competitions. So bearing that in mind it is more than likely that they are going to have a good crack at this against the out-of-sorts Leicester. Derby have actually taken eight clean sheets in their last nine home games and only a 3-2 home win over Reading last weekend snapped that eight match clean sheet streak that they were on at Pride Park. That’s some defensively sound stuff and the under 2.5 goals option at Bet365 can be backed at a price of 7/10. Three of the last four meetings between Derby and Leicester at Pride Park have gone under the goal line. Derby don't have form running against Leicester at home because they have only gone W1 L3 in their last four at Pride Park against the Foxes. They failed to score a single goal in either of those defeats as well. Here’s the rub with Derby, they are defensively strong, but they are not a high scoring side at all. Just to put that into context, the Rams are the lowest scoring side inside the top sixteen in the Championship at the moment. Darren Bent is 21/10 favourite for them in the Bet365 the anytime goalscorer market and he was on target against West Brom in the last round. Tom Ince from midfield got the other goal against the Baggies and he is a decent shot at 9/4 to net in the Bet365 anytime goalscorer market. Derby have won only one of their last nine games against Leicester, but then, will that deter punters from backing them in this one? This is the first FA Cup clash between Derby and Leicester since the 1893/1894 season. Both teams not to score is a price of 5/6. Leicester can’t get their act together still and it has been a season of huge inconsistencies for them. The Foxes are just five points above the Premier League relegation zone at the moment, so will probably be looking at the FA Cup as an opportunity to blow off some steam. They can’t get anything going and have only posted a W2 D2 L4 in their last eight games across all competitions. As a positive for Claudio Ranieri’s men, they did take something of a surprise win at Everton in the last round. They have lost both games played since then, conceding exactly three goals in each of them. Leicester have managed to win just two away games all season and both of those came in Cup fixtures. Overall the Foxes have a shockingly poor W2 D4 L9 record away from the King Power in all competitions. Leicester have failed to score in four of their last six games on the road and Jamie Vardy is a 7/4 poke in the anytime goalscorer market for this one. With Algeria going out of the AFCON early, they will get Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani back sooner rather than later.

Derby v Leicester Predictions

There is no confidence in backing Leicester to go out on the road and get anything at the moment. Yes, they claimed a win at Everton in the last round, but they very well could be exposed by Championship side Derby here, who don’t give things up at the back. Leicester are vulnerable at the back and therefore, with the Rams being a low scoring side it could just be worth backing the home side to edge this one by a one goal margin. A 1-0 correct score may have some appeal in favour of the home side.
