Fulham vs Derby County Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews
Two sides who’ve made a bad start to 2016 meet in the Championship on Saturday as Fulham take on Derby County. Our betting tips suggest this won’t be a classic but the hosts could get a valuable point.
Reason For Fulham vs Derby County Betting Tips
Fulham brought in Slaviša Jokanović to try and turn around their season but he’s not having much joy and they are in danger of being really sucked into a relegation battle. Some might say they are already in one having only picked up 1 point in 4 matches so far this year as well as exiting the FA Cup in the 3rd Round against Championship opposition.
The Cottagers are only 3 points above the bottom 3 now and with several of the sides below them playing each other this weekend, the gap will be reduced if they don’t get something out of this.
Luckily for Fulham they are playing Derby at a good time as the Rams are really struggling at the moment. Only a month ago they seemed like certainties for promotion but 6 games without a win in the league and only 3 points from those matches has seen them fall back. They’ve only netted twice in their last 5 games and for all their pretty build-up play at times they really struggle to penetrate sides.
Given that run of form and the way they’ve been playing you can’t confidently back them to grab all the points here so consider backing Fulham to get a result at 17/20.
Fulham have been a bit more cautious under Jokanović, who is a smart manager who knows the league and may feel as though he can stifle Derby here and grab a point. Therefore consider backing a 0-0 draw at odds of 11/1.
