Preston NE vs Leeds United: Betting Tips

Preston North End FC need a miracle to end this season of England Championship in top six. Squad from Deepdale was in a great position in terms of standings just three weeks ago. However, in the meantime they suffered three straight defeats against Sheffield Wednesday, Derby County and Reading. All those losses pushed them to the 11th place, having 60 points at the moment, which is six less than Middlesbrough. This Tuesday, The Lilywhites are facing Leeds United, squad which got nothing left to care about in this season.

Probably the most important thing to mention in this preview is high number of injuries for the visitors. Coach Paul Heckingbottom won’t be able to count on a lot of players from the back line! Defense is going to be a problem for the Whites at Deepdale, there is no doubt about that.

I am going to back Preston NE to win this match despite the awful form they demonstrated recently. Hosts are way more motivated here, while Leeds failed to beat Sunderland last weekend, a relegation zone team. Also, squad from Elland Road has high 50% loss rate for away matches.

Sean Maguire is expected to take place in the starting lineup once again. So far he bagged nine goals this season, and should have a lot of space against poor back line of Leeds. Maguire to score anytime is priced at 6/4 (2.50) and is worth a punt.
