Derby have enjoyed some memorable moments in knockout matches this term and are fancied to prove a class apart from Accrington in the FA Cup.
The Rams beat Premier League Southampton on penalties in the last round and knocked Manchester United out of the EFL Cup earlier in the season.
Frank Lampard is not the type to take this lesser test lightly, so 87/100 for County to come out on top in normal time is our first Accrington vs Derby prediction.
A Look At Accrington Stanley’s Betting Odds
After gaining promotion last year, Accrington have acquitted themselves well in League One, lying just below mid-table at this stage.
However, Stanley may be looking over their shoulders at the drop zone after picking up only one point from their last four games in that division.
John Coleman’s side have failed to score in those fixtures and conceded eight times at the other end.
A 1-0 FA Cup win over Ipswich at Wham Stadium was a welcome distraction, but the Tractor Boys do have a woeful record in this competition.
Coleman insisted: “The finances from a cup run, and a good draw, can change this club not only for this season but next season too.”
However, looking at the Accrington vs Derby odds, we’re going with 21/10 for an away win to nil here.
A Look At Derby County’s Betting Odds
Derby were involved in a couple of EFL Cup thrillers when edging out United on penalties after a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford and then losing 3-2 at Chelsea.
However, they can also be clinical on the road in knockout competitions, having prevailed 2-0 at Oldham and 4-0 at Hull earlier in that campaign.
The Rams twice came from 2-0 down against Southampton before the replay at St Mary’s Stadium ended in a shoot-out success, so the spirit is clearly there, too.
Saturday’s 2-1 win over Reading left County in the Championship play-off places and pushing for promotion is obviously the number one aim.
But, after stunning the Saints, Lampard beamed: “I’ve got a really good dressing room with great characters. They wanted to play, to run when fatigue kicks in, and we thoroughly deserved to go through.”
Lampard lifted this trophy four times with Chelsea and knows how a good cup run can help to build and maintain momentum.
Let’s finish off our Accrington vs Derby betting tips by taking 33/4 for a 2-0 away win.
