England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 14 December 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Deepdale (Preston).
Preston had a tough schedule to wade through in recent weeks, and it expectedly has cost them some points. However, this weekend, they are at home, and are taking on a newly-promoted Luton, who lost their last six games on the road in a row. As such, Preston emerges as the favorite to post the three points.

Preston vs Luton Prediction
Preston put an end to their dismal run with a hard-fought win the last match-day. They were at home, and defeated Fulham with a 2-1 scoreline.
In the meantime, Luton lost on the road the same game week, as they took on Stoke. Despite persistent efforts, the guests could not find the back of the net even once, while they conceded three goals in a row.
As Luton take a trip to Deepdale, take into consideration their grave intention to get back on track. They had some tough fixtures to deal with in recent weeks, and most of it were on the road (where Preston are known to suffer).
However, this time around, they have the home advantage, and on top of that, the win over Fulham (a team that was just relegated from the Premier League) the last match-day, will increase their confidence.
Moreover, Preston were unbeaten in 13 of their last 15 home fixtures, and impressively won ten of the last fourteen appearances here.
A look into Luton’s overall performances, and especially the ones on the road, increments the chances of Preston even further. They have lost seven of the preceding nine overall match-ups, and were winless in 12 of the last 16 games as well. Importantly, the team is on a losing streak of six fixtures away from home, and recorded a combined scorecard of 20-3, in the process.
Finally, Preston have dominated this opponent over the previous two decades in phenomenal fashion. They have won five of the previous seven clashes, and at this venue, the hosts hold a 100% winning record too.
Taking into consideration all these observations, Preston are easily a shoe-in for a comfortable win over this newly-promoted team from League One, this Saturday.
