​Derby vs Burton: Top free betting tips

Our Derby vs Burton prediction is for a close clash in what is a fiery local derby. Will Burton’s struggles in attack on the road continue? 

The Rams are right in the mix of the battle for promotion after securing 8 wins in the last 11 rounds (D1 L2). Derby’s ability to win matches even when not playing that great makes them a team worth monitoring in the race for direct promotion. Burton finally appointed a new permanent manager this week, over a month after they sacked the fan-favourite Maarmia. The Brewers remain just above the relegation zone and they have issues on the road where a single point was earned from the last 5 matches. 

​​​Clean sheet prediction: Derby clean sheet

Our first Derby vs Burton prediction backs the Rams to keep a clean sheet. Derby managed to achieve shutdowns in 4 of the last 6 H2Hs, including during their 3-0 win away vs Burton earlier this season. 

This betting tip is also backed by the fact that Burton failed to score in 4 of their last 5 away matches. 

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals

In 4 of the last 6 H2Hs, there were no more than 2 total goals scored. Also, all of Burton’s last 5 league games were low-scoring affairs with no more than 2 goals in them. This is why our second Derby vs Burton prediction is for the game to stay under 2.5 goals. 

​​​Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Derby

As the tradition dictates our final Derby vs Burton prediction is an attempt to guess the correct score. In this clash, we think Derby will have just about enough class to edge the game 1-0. This was the exact scoreline in 2 of Derby’s last 3 wins vs Burton. Also, Burton’s last away match resulted in a 0-1 defeat, while 2 of Derby’s last 7 home wins were 1-0 triumphs.
