Despite sitting seven places and six points behind their opponents, Peterborough United are 91/100 favourites in bwin’s 3Way football betting market to claim a victory against Derby County.
With the Championship being as wide open as it currently is, playoff spots are up for grabs and both sides will see this as a fixture where they can pick up three points.
As a result, no outcome is out of the question and there will be plenty of punters who will fancy Derby to win, which is available at a generous 13/5. Equally, the draw is likely to be heavily backed at 13/5.

After suffering three defeats on the bounce, Posh boss Darren Ferguson will be desperate for his side to react in a positive manner and overturn this current run of form.
Peterborough have the worst defensive record in the division and have conceded a whopping 15 goals prior to the interval. Posh have also scored in the opening 45 minutes on 14 occasions, which is a total only bettered by leaders Southampton (18).
In spite of the bad results, Peterborough have scored five goals in the three losses and it has been eight league fixtures since they last failed to find the back of the net.
Peterborough to score in the match is priced at a miserly 1/10, but there is plenty of value in backing over 3.5 goals in the game at 6/5, considering this has happened in matches involving Posh on six occasions already this season.
London Road has seen a massive 30 goals in a mere seven games so far in this campaign, which is in fact the most in the Championship at this stage.
Visiting teams will always fear the attacking threat that Peterborough possess, but at the same time will always fancy their chances of breaching the hosts’ leaky defence.
Posh have not only conceded in every home game so far, they are yet to keep a clean sheet in any fixture in all competitions.
Consequently, the Rams should look to attack from the off and with both teams’ mindset presumably the same, it is probable that both sides will hit the target. This particular outcome is priced at 21/50.
If these odds are a bit on the short side for some punters, then it may be worth looking at both teams to score in the first half, which is available at a tasty 11/5.
After all, Peterborough have the worst defensive record in the division and have conceded a whopping 15 goals prior to the interval.
Posh have also scored in the opening 45 minutes on 14 occasions, which is a total only bettered by leaders Southampton (18).
