Derby County 13/10 to beat Luton Town in Tuesday’s Championship showdown

Competition: Championship

Market: Derby County win

Odds: 13/10 @ Bet 365

Enjoying what is by far their most eye-catching run of the season, Derby will make the trip to relegation scrappers Luton on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, despite taking a shock lead away at Nottingham Forest last week, Luton were hit with a 3-1 defeat at the City Ground and have continued on what is becoming a campaign to forget. Still sat at the foot of the Championship and nine points adrift of safety, the Hatters find themselves in the midst of a woeful four-match losing run in England’s second-tier. With that run also highlighted by a 3-1 hammering against Millwall earlier in the month, Graeme Jones’ men have failed to pick up a single victory over the past seven weeks. Unsuprinsgly, a huge part of Luton’s continued issues since opening the New Year has been their struggles at the back. Already shipping a staggering 61 strikes this season, Tuesday’s hosts have also conceded a trio of goals in four of their last five appearances.

As for the visitors, while Derby may have only managed to play out a 0-0 draw away at Northampton Town in the FA Cup over the weekend, the Rams are enjoying quite the resurge. Still boosted by the arrival of former England skipper Wayne Rooney, last year’s play-off finalists find themselves in the midst of a seven-match unbeaten run that stems back to the 21st of December. With the mood in their camp at a season-high and dreaming of mounting a shock top-six charge, Head Coach Phillip Cocu has seen his side win three of their last four Championship appearances. Picking up a 2-0 win when the two sides faced off at Pride Park earlier in the season, we’re backing an away victory on Tuesday night.
