Frank Lampard enjoyed a good start to his managerial career when Derby kicked off the Championship campaign with a win at Reading and the Rams can follow up by beating Leeds.
United’s new boss Marcelo Bielsa will have been buoyed by a convincing home win over Stoke, but the Whites must still prove they can put last season’s poor away form behind them.
The Yorkshire club suffered 13 defeats on the road last term and we’re on County to prevail at 19/20 as our first Derby vs Leeds prediction.
A Look At Derby County’s Betting Odds
Lampard said that Derby’s dramatic 2-1 victory at Reading was “right up there” with the best moments of his extensive playing career in terms of excitement.
The Rams had to come from behind after starting slowly, but debutant Mason Mount equalised on the hour and Tom Lawrence nodded in the winner in the fourth minute of stoppage time.
“I don’t want to get carried away, because I know it can’t be like this every week, but that moment was fantastic,” beamed Lampard.
The former England midfielder admitted his side were fortunate to pick up all three points and that there is work to do, but he added: “Character-wise, it was a massive plus.”
A Look At Leeds United’s Betting Odds
Ex-Argentina and Chile boss Bielsa began his reign as head coach of Leeds with an emphatic 3-1 victory over Championship favourites Stoke.
The 63-year-old’s aggressive style of play was there for all to see as goals from Mateusz Klich, Pablo Hernandez and Liam Cooper caught the Potters cold.
“Our offensive actions were very good in some moments,” said Bielsa. “It’s a dynamic team, an offensive team and it is a team that dares to play.”
However, the veteran manager also admitted that United showed some signs of defensive frailty as that game went on.
Having conceded 37 times on the road last term, we’re adding 17/5 for a home win and both teams to score to our Derby vs Leeds betting tips.
