Live on BBC1: Sat 12.30: 2/1 outsiders Leeds have been underestimated ahead of their Championship trip to Burnley.
Leeds bounced back impressively from their 5-0 home embarrassment against Blackpool by grabbing the only goal at Leicester and Simon Grayson’s side can build on that result by picking up maximum points in Saturday’s televised clash at Burnley.
The inconsistent Clarets have lost four of their last six in the Championship, culminating in a 3-1 reverse at struggling Bristol City last time out and while Eddie Howe’s men are Stan James’ 7/5 favourites ahead of the visit of the Whites, they’ve managed only two home victories this term and are worth opposing.
Accordingly, Leeds look huge at 2/1 via to emerge victorious at Turf Moor, where they ran out 3-2 winners last season and another one-goal margin of victory for the West Yorkshire outfit undoubtedly appeals at 4/1 (bet365).
Watford are just one place above the drop zone having gone down 1-0 at Middlesbrough a couple of weeks ago but the Hornets should ease their relegation worries by getting the better of Portsmouth at Vicarage Road.
Yet to win an away match, Pompey have taken just three points from a possible 24 on the road while Sean Dyche’s charges carded back-to-back home successes against Peterborough and Brighton before going down at Boro, form that suggests that William Hill’s 6/4 for a Hornets success is a touch high.
Meanwhile, already looking a touch more solid under Steve Cotterill, Nottingham Forest are the other eye catching bet in the second tier at 11/10 courtesy of Coral to inflict a fourth straight defeat on faltering Ipswich; Forest double up with Watford at odds of 4/1 with William Hill.
