Leeds v Birmingham

Both Teams to Score, No Draw

Leeds manager Daniel Farke can’t be too happy with his two losses endured over the Christmas period, however, at Elland Road they’ve lost none of their 13 Championship games, scoring a rather healthy 13 goals over their last five. They conceded five over those five games it must be noted.

Birmingham have won just one of their last five league fixtures, also winning just one on their recent travels, drawing one and losing three, scoring seven while conceding 12. We should see Both Teams to Score landing here but we cannot see it ending level.

Leicester v Huddersfield

Leicester -1

With eight points between Leicester in top spot and Ipswich in second place, the Foxes are going to be eager to put even more daylight between themselves and the Tractor Boys. The hosts are enjoying a run of nine games undefeated and on home soil have won four on-the-trot, scoring 12 while conceding just three.

Huddersfield have won just one of their last five on their travels, drawing two and losing two, scoring just four goals. Leicester should romp home here, we’re taking them in the -1 Handicap market.

      Norwich v Southampton

      A Goal Score in Both Halves

      Norwich’s recent home games have tended to see a few early goals, indeed, of their last five we’ve seen five first-half goals. Southampton, on the other hand, like to leave things a bit later and have scored a total of 10 second-half goals over their last five in the league and this is a trend from both sides that we need to be exploiting.

        Southampton to Win

        This one should be tight, Norwich manager David Wagner will be expecting a strong response from the Canaries after two disappointing losses on Boxing Day and on Friday and their home form of three wins, one draw and one loss suggests they’ll be going at the Saints here.

        Saying that, the away side are in the better form, winning four of their last five and another win will put them within touching distance of Ipswich. That superior form should see the Saints taking the three points on offer. We’re backing Southampton to Win.

        Stoke v Ipswich

        Both Teams to Score

        Stoke have won just one of their last five league games, drawing the other four while at home have drawn three and lost two. Ipswich’s form has taken a dive of late, winning just one of their last five, drawing three and losing one while on their travels have won two, drawn one and lost two, scoring six and conceding nine. With those records, Both Teams to Score has the value here.
