Leeds vs Preston Prediction
A recent defeat against Fulham has instilled doubts about Leeds form in the campaign. But that was the only loss in their last 12 league fixtures.
Apart from that, they have lost only 4 of their overall 23 league appearances. So, we can hope for Leeds to make a comeback in the game.
Besides that, Leeds is the second best home team after Preston in the league. Also, they are on an unbeaten run at home for the past eight fixtures.
With four wins in the last five home matches, Leeds does seem to be intimidating to the visitor.
In addition to their home ground advantage, Leeds will also be hosting a weaker team in away fixtures in the campaign.
Despite being the best home team and within the top five in the table. Evidently, Preston is winless in their past four matches on the road with three losses in it.
Alongside that, the visitor will be coming off of a goalless draw on the road against Cardiff below them in the table.
As such, Leeds will have more opportunities in the game. Since it is a tight game, we can expect the total goals to be under 3.5 goals in ninety minutes.
