Match Summary

2 We fancy:

Leeds to win at 19/20 with BetVictor is our best bet for this match. Leeds are still yet to lose and face a side who have lost all three of their away games this season without scoring a goal. Leeds have won three of their four and look like a side capable of big things this season. This bet looks far too big here not to take.

19/20 Leeds to win

3 It's a long shot, but…

Leeds to win 2-0 is our football score prediction for this game at 9/1 with BetStars. Leeds have shown they can score goals and given we fancy them to keep a clean sheet as well, this score looks the most likely at a bigger price.

One to Watch: Jack Harrison

The Manchester City loanee was brought in by Bielsa to add some flair and pace to this Leeds side, and he certainly has bags of both. He was snapped up by Pep Guardiola after impressing in America with New York City FC, where he scored 10 goals and registered three assists in 2017.

Harrison has not played much football since, but Bielsa seems a fan. He has given him plenty of game time at the start of the season and he scored a brilliant late equaliser at the weekend against Millwall – the signs look good for him and Leeds.

15/2 Harrison to score and Leeds to win

Leeds United vs Preston North End Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Leeds have made a great start to life under Marco Bielsa and they’re the only unbeaten team in the Championship ahead of Preston’s visit to Elland Road

In this Championship preview, we look ahead to Tuesday night’s clash between table-toppers Leeds and struggling Preston. We will be searching through the betting markets to find some free football betting tips for you to use.

Leeds United have started life under Marcelo Bielsa in the best possible way, winning four and drawing three of their opening seven league matches to remain the only unbeaten side in the division. Despite their good start, they have drawn their last two games and will be keen to get back to winning ways this weekend against a Preston side who are struggling for form.

North End have just five points from their seven games and sit 23rd in the league, with just one win so far. They were beaten by fellow strugglers, Reading, at home last weekend and the early season signs do not make good reading for Alex Neil’s side. They have not won since the opening day of the season and have lost all of their three opening away games without scoring a goal.

Looking at some football betting tips for this weekend, it certainly looks an easy one to call on paper. The bookies have the home side as clear favourites at 19/20, whilst Preston are at 18/5 and the draw at 13/5. Based on those prices, our football prediction here is for Leeds to win. United have won three of their four home matches so far this season, whilst also holding pre-season title favourites Middlesbrough to a draw and conceding just one goal. Preston haven’t scored away from home so far this season, so the 19/20 on Leeds to win looks good value and is our main football prediction for today.

Another of our Championship predictions here is for Leeds to score over 1.5 goals at evens. They have managed over 1.5 goals in five of their seven league games so far, while Preston have conceded at least two goals in five of their seven matches, so that bet looks great value for this game.

Our final Championship prediction for this game is in the handicap market, where Leeds are valued at 12/5 at -1 with BetBright. Leeds should have too much quality for this Preston side, who seem to be conceding plenty of goals in the process. They haven’t scored away from home and Leeds have won three of their four at home by at least two goals also.

Predicted Score: Leeds United 2 - 0 Preston North End
