Derby vs Luton Prediction

Being unbeaten in the last four championship ties in their schedule does not favor the host much because of the three draws consisted in the run. They did win their previous home match in the league against Birmingham in a fierce 3-2 score. Since the win was against a weaker side at away fixtures they cannot expect the same with Luton.

As for the guest, they have maintained two wins and three losses in the league away fixture in this season. They were able to defeat a stronger home side like Blackburn in their prior game far from home. With an overall eleven points, one less than the host, with five loss and three wins they cannot be easily written off in the bout.

Apart from that, the host has won only one in the last five home ties with three draws. On the contrary, the away side has won three of the previous five trips on the road. Even though the host is unbeaten at home in their h2h clash, they last played in 2007. So, the defeats cannot be closely taken into account.

Hence, by their current league performance, the visitors have a better chance of winning the game. Since the host has the home advantage it will be better to go with a double chance.
