In a sentence: With Fulham knocking on the door of the automatic promotion places and Preston close to the play-offs, this game will be huge in the outcome at the end of the season.

Last time: Both teams played out a 2-2 at Craven Cottage earlier in the campaign when neither side were in full flow.

This time: A Preston win is 15/8, a draw is 11/5 and an away win is priced at 6/4.

You might remember: These two have played each other five times in the Championship and Fulham are still yet to pick up a win against Preston.

Betting Tips & Predictions

Preston welcome Fulham to Deepdale with the visitors in superb form of late in the Championship

This season you will struggle to find a better team to watch in English football than Fulham. Of course Manchester City will be the headline team, as will Wolves in the Championship, but Fulham’s form of recent weeks has propelled them from mid-table to automatic promotion candidates.

They’ve put in some great performances of late and a repeat of their 3-0 midweek victory against Sheffield United is priced at 25/1. That being said, a 4-1 thrashing for Fulham is at 50/1 and could actually be a good bet.

Preston aren’t a team that will roll over easily however, as they have their own play-off place to fight for. If they can get a 2-1 win at odds of 10/1, Alex Neil will be a very happy man. Or if it’s a draw that you fancy between two sides who are looking to not lose, a 1-1 is 11/2 and a repeat of their fixture earlier in the season is 16/1.

It may be better to go for the amount of goals scored as opposed to an outright winner if you’re looking for some value in this game, especially considering the nature of Fulham’s victories as of late. Three or more goals are 3/1, four goals are 11/2, five is 11/1 and a large six or more is 16/1. It may seem mad to pick six or more goals but at 16/1, that suggests it could actually happen.

Match Summary


Look out for:

A Fulham win with both teams to score, which has odds of 10/11, while no goals scored is also 10/11.


We fancy:

Fulham. It would be mad to bet against the Cottagers this week, so a 3-1 win at 20/1 is what we’d go for.


It’s a long shot, but:

A 4-4 draw would seem unlikely to happen, but it may be worth a pound or so with the odds at 200/1.
