Reason For Huddersfield vs Leeds Betting Tips

  • Leeds out to further their title ambitions with victory here.
  • A five-game winning run has put Leeds on course for the Premier League.
  • Under 2.5 goals has landed in 68% of Leeds’ games.
  • Only Stoke have fewer points at home this season than Huddersfield.

Visitors Pulling Away

Leeds are one of just two sides in the Championship to hit the 40-point mark already, giving them a five-point lead over third. That’s left them in a title fight with West Brom after 19 games of the campaign, while they’ve more than doubled Huddersfield’s points tally so far.

Can the visitors further the 22-point gap between the two sides with a victory at the John Smith’s Stadium this week?

Leeds on a Roll

The away side have been great on the road across the campaign. Leeds have managed to claim back-to-back wins to nil, cementing their position as the best defence in the division. At the minute, Marcelo Bielsa’s side are looking unstoppable, especially after moving top of the form table.

Leeds have won their last five Championship games, their longest hot streak since a run of seven between November/December 2018. They are peaking at this time of year once again, with a perfect balance of match practice and fitness getting the most out of Bielsa’s style of play. That has made them odds-on favourites for this trip.

Stingy Defence is Key

Leeds have achieved their success this term through their strong defence, conceding fewer than any side in the division. The visitors have let in only six goals across 10 away trips so far, conceding from only 6% of their shots against away from home. Meanwhile, Huddersfield have converted just 8% of their chances at home, so they’re unlikely to have much joy here.

Leeds have won to nil in five of their six meetings with the bottom seven. Now they meet 19th-placed Huddersfield having conceded only twice in nine clashes with the current bottom 10. Leeds have been consistent up front without going overboard, which has seen their matches this season average exactly two goals per game. With the visitors seeing under 2.5 in 68% of their matches, we are backing another low-scoring clash this weekend.

Given Leeds’ winning run in the league, we expect them to live up to their favourites tag and claim victory in this trip. The hosts have one of the league’s worst home records – only Stoke have fewer home points this term. On top of that, the home side have lost all their clashes with the top six this season, so we are going with a 2-0 victory for the visitors here
